And how would I do that?

How exactly do I PM you? This is a no reply email.
And, here is the latest from the service department, where the car has now sat for nearly two weeks: the brake supposedly disengages the transmission when you step on it. In an earlier conversation they denied that that happens. So at low speeds, they say, the computer is having trouble determining if the transmission should engage or disengage. Thus, the fluttering back and forth between neutral and first gear. The shaking is the car not being able to make up its' mind to go or not to go. So, they say they've made some "programming" changes. We'll see, we'll see. My advice, give these guys another year or two to get the bugs out of this car. Oh yea, and don't forget at less than 4,000 miles, a cooling fan motor burned out.
