12000 0 One cold morning, car wouldn't start- at cranking, car, lights, etc went dead. After multiple tries, about 15 minutes later, it did start, after holding key to start about 15-20 seconds. Was colder rest of week, started fine. Shop found no problems. V6 engine "flare". At cold start, when passing 20 mph, transmission can rev noticeably, tach shoots from 2000 to 3500 and back down quickly, car seems to lose power for a second. Told -again- it's Drive By Wire, "supposed to do that". Similar to 2007's?
