    Starter engages then stops and lights come on. Message window under speedometer says:
    Brake System
    Service Required
    After the dust settles and things stop flashing the Check Engine light and the ABS light are on.
    I haven't fixed the problem; it is Saturday, the repair shops are closed and I really would like to at least be able to start my car.

    Check engine light on, sporadic performance issues, message center warning also sporadic. Car will stall (very dangerous, hard steering, little brake action). This happens after a long, continuous drive, then slowing down.
    No diagnosis yet, will update when dealer sees car today.
