02 sensor was bad. It was replaced at the local Pep Boys auto. They were nice enough to give me a 15% off discount even though I forgot to bring the coupon with me. The check engine light turned on along with the traction control light going off and a fairly scary message check VSC (that message and the other indicators going off is normal for this vehicle, But I didn't know that). 
12000 mi 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?
