It's already back at the dealership and I'm without it once again. Bummer.
Holy Sh!t!

Re: I took delivery of my Deep Cherry Red

Well, good news. Dealer called, the fuel line popped off at the fuel rail. They said it was never "clicked" in properly. They re-connected it and test drove it. CEL came on and they also found the O2 sensor shorted from the fuel spilling onto it. Parts are being shipped overnight and I should (crosses fingers) be on the road again tomorrow.

Re: I took delivery of my Deep Cherry Red

Yup, fairly easy fix after replacing the connection and a few gas soaked 02 sensors. Back on the road running strong.

Just saw a new one being prepped today, red with no sunroof. Can't be many of those out there.
