This episode aside, I like the car very much, definitely more than either of our Hyundais.
Hi lutztb,

Great to hear! Keep me posted and let me know if I can be of assistance.

Document every occurance, and as instructed by the owners manual, take it to your dealer. Remind the dealer that you are following the manufacturers instructions by bringing it to the dealer to resolve the error. (See page 272 of the owners manual.)

Morning spiller,

Thanks for reaching out to lutztb. The advice is appreciated.

Take care and have a GREAT Valentines Day!
