ETS Light has come on noticing hesitation, not responcive to throttle
Still have the problem - no work done on the car yet. Rough idle swings about 400rpms when cold - better when warmed up. Just had the ETS come on but went off a little while later. When I started the car next morning still off
Dealer reduced service fee to 50%...still cost me near 400 bucks
