So, turns out... the pigtail on the NOx sensor wasn?t secured properly and started rubbing on the A/C compressor pulley, messing up the wires and throwing the code. Dealer is overnighting the parts, put me in a loaner and should have it back tomorrow.
I can see that being an honest mistake. If it was a hardware failure, I’d just request a new car. I had a friend, years ago, bring his 3 day old Acura Integra in, to get it detailed. It was raining the night he bought the car, so, they promised him a detail. He goes back, and they detail it. Well, they used some acidic something, to get the windows cleaned. They were etched with deposits, from sitting on the lot. Well, they got some of whatever it was, on the paint. And the next day, the metal underneath the windows where the paint meets the trim, the paint was bubbled, all the way from the front to the rear, on both sides, and had already started to rust. Well, he went back to the dealer, and they wanted the car back to “fix” it. Well, my friend requested a new car. 154 miles on the clock, they laughed at him. He left with the car, went to channel 3 news, and returned the next day, with an entire news crew. One of those “3 on your side.” Gigs. The dealer wanted nothing to do with the bad publicity, and ended up replacing the car, and actually gave him the next higher model, up from the base model. He had an RS, they gave him an LS. Swapped the paperwork, done deal.
They took care of me, I can?t complain too much. It?s a stupid problem to have but it was a problem and they fixed it quickly. It?s not given me any issues (even when it was throwing codes for emissions). Despite all of that I?m impressed with the car. Time will tell.
