So creeping home last Wednesday night on my daily commute in Washington DC and the engine shuts off. Luckily I was able to coast to the mini shoulder. Roadside assistance cited a 2 hour wait for a tow truck, but the State police motorist assist was able to get a truck there in 20 minutes. Towed to dealer where I bought the car, next day's "update" there's something wrong with your engine...no kidding. Three days later, we're going to replace the engine. I've had a loaner and they've been very nice about it, but I'm glad it's my company car and not my personal car as I'd be a bit more hesitant about a new engine install. We'll see how this goes.
