The car started fine aftera fuel stop but almost immediately afterwards every warning light came on, all system failure notifications appeared, the steering wheel was cocked far off to the left when the wheels were straight, shift points changed, and power was greatly reduced; the speed maximum was 50 mph. The dealer kept the car overnight. First they reported wheels out of alignment so paid $135 for that. Then they determined that the battery had failed. It was replaced under warranty. Wheel is still not perfectly straight.
