I recently purchased this vehicle. Drove it home from the dealership when attempting to start it the next day, it had little to no power, started misfiring, so I turned it around and parked it. It had to be towed back to the dealership where are they check it out. And I was told it was due to misfiring spark plugs which two of them were replaced. Drove get home. Took it 2 an appointment the next morning where I can be check engine light came on. So I took it back to the dealership. So I took it back to the dealership. They told me I could use one of their vehicles and they would do a thorough check. 3 days later I picked up the vehicle and was told they replace the catalytic converter and gave me a blank warranty slip. My vehicle still runs extremely rough and sounds and feels as if it wants to stall. I told the dealership it still smells like rotten eggs and they told me it was a gas I was putting in. I've only put gas in this vehicle twice and it has been premium both times.

The anti-theft system may cause a no start condition due to electrostatic discharge (ESD) affecting the wireless control module (WCM) I think thats what happend to me
