I just had a terrifying experience last night, in which my 2019 Elite had an auto engine idle issue that caused the car to fail to start. This left me stuck in the middle of a busy street during rush hour. I have been having similar issues with my car where the engine shuts off and fails to start during auto engine idle, but this one was different because I could not just shut off the car completely and start it again. I have been taking my car in since I bought it used in 2020 for this issue and they have never been able to resolve it. Each time they say there were no error codes, so they cannot do anything. They always check the battery and it provides normal specs. This morning, they checked the battery and it was bad. They want to charge me for the battery replacement regardless of the fact that the car has been having issues since I bought it because now the car has 37k miles and not the 36k mile mark for the warranty. Does anyone have this problem, and if so, will it be resolved by getting a new battery?
