Just wanted to give an update about the car. First of all when I went to Carmax this past Monday morning (car died on Friday) and asked why I was having to rent a car they wanted to know who told me that because I should have never had to rent a car during a break down within the 30 day warranty. The service manager is reimbursing me for the rental, had someone follow me to the rental place to turn the car in, and then brought me back and gave me a loaner vehicle. So, in the end Carmax did me right.
There were 2 issues with the car. The first issue (" computer screen started flashing and making a warning sound. It said traction control off, engine in reduced power mode. The car would barely go. Thank God I was close to home. It barely had enough power to make it into my driveway and sounded like it was running on on one or two cylinders. It shut off and now will not crank. It will not even turn over! Check engine light is on!") turned out to be a short in the wiring harness which blew the 60 amp fuse, I was told the short was near the fuse, I want to be shown where when I pick the car up.
The second issue was "shuttering I can feel through my armrest when I leave a red-light with light acceleration" turned out to be the transmission. The guy that just called me to give an update said "the transmission was coming apart on the inside". That is disturbing to me! It is being rebuilt at AAMCO. Man, I hope they know what they are doing!!! Anyway the service work will have its own warranty plus I bought a 5 year 75000 mile extended warranty. All of this work is being done with Carmax's 30 day warranty for free. I will check the BCM myself for issues when I get it back. Should be tomorrow.
