Your expectations are way too high if you want over 24,000,000 pixels to all be utterly flawless under all conditions all the time. Every camera I have ever seen has at least one hot or dead pixel, under certain conditions. Hans98ko knows what he's talking about.
Just run your sensor clean in rapid succession 2-3 times, and the camera will map them out. No need for a return. If you return your cameras every time you see a hot/dead pixel, you will be at it indefinitely. ACR even maps them out automatically if you're too lazy to do the sensor clean method. Nikon can map them out for you too, if you really want.
Manufactures have policies on acceptable dead/stuck/hot pixels. For example, if you read the fine print on your TV warranty, it will say somewhere between 4 and 7 dead pixels are acceptable, sometimes even more if they aren't clumped together are "within spec".
You're welcome to your own ways of thinking, but unfortunately it won't change the fact that a DSLR with 3 / 24,160,256 dead pixels is not defective, and has a number of quick solutions. Most likely, you've always had those pixels and the shutter swap had nothing to do with it, but just happened to notice them recently.
