Same problem here. I'll take it to another dealer for sure. The only reason I went to that guy was the free first oil change, but they charged me 20 bucks for rotating tires. Now I just have to schedule it in. Watta pain.

Cheers

^ x2. You shouldn't need to be throwing codes before they'll fix a damn car. Ridiculous.

my fault was in class and didn't realize the size of the thread, its really hot out today and I actually noticed that I might be having a similar issue with my car... I got it two weeks ago, but manuals don't sell at all here in Ontario so who knows when the car was manufactured.

It could be because of the weather its 105+ over here so that could be the issue...

How do I find out when the car was manufactured?

There's a sticker on the driver's door post (hinge side) that will show the month of manufacture.

Or, you can plug your VIN in here, to get a more accurate build date:

Thanks guys,

Build Date: 23.04.2012

So I'm guessing it's because of the 105+ temp :( .... seems like the car just doesn't want to move today

Mine was built on 4/26. I have very little lag unless I'm running the A/C, and I try so very hard to deal with the heat. I usually don't run A/C unless it's hot and I'm on the interstate.

I do notice a drop in power with A/C off, but not really a throttle "lag".
