Thursday we drove the car in the morning. No errors or warnings. Everything was fine. Parked the car in the garage which is where it lives when we're not driving it. Thursday afternoon the car would not start. Screen was black. After attempting a reboot, eventually a display appeared saying "12v battery needs replacement soon". Gee...thanks for the warning! Contacted customer service. Next available appt is Sept 30. Today is the 18th. That's 12 days from now. TWELVE days without a car! Considered towing it to the nearest service station which is 100 miles from here. Their next appt is Sept 29. That's ELEVEN days from now. So I'm stuck with a dead car for almost 2 weeks. This car is driven daily. It does not sit around unused.
Does anyone have a suggestion as to how I can get this car working without having to wait 12 days for service? We've really enjoyed this car but this is ridiculous. FYI - we live in Florida and yes, it's hot in the summer. But the car spends most of its time in the garage where the max temperature is close to 90. It's probably outside on average 1-3 hours per day.
