52000 0 The AWD system light came on. I was told it was a fuse so it was replaced. The light came on again on the same day and I have an appointment on 09/10/2010 for repair. Aside: the 9-7x is junk (at least mine is.) Multiple trips for repair. Engine began "clicking" and check engine light came on. Was told it was only need for oil change/oil filter replacement. Resolved issue but per the informtion the car provides the driver, I allegedly had 25% oil life remaining.
