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?

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).

gert has given us 240,000 miles with only a waterpump replacement. this is the first major repair. the drivers side wheel bearing were worn out and grinding when she turned. we decided to replace the whole assembly being more expensive instead of a repair. the left side is now also starting to make noise so it will also have to be replaced soon. NO COMPLAINTS Gert has been an amazing car.
