Good to hear you got your car back. As for the rental experience/ride to get your car - I'll just say I remember more times than I care to count working at a rental counter and hearing various requests and time frames from customers, which typically

Whatever you do- do not put on your facebook page that you took it to the track and do not put anything in a forum or on a web page with vidoes and pictures that will incriminate you on the off chance you blow something and try and get warranty work.

It was in the HVAC. It controlled the automatic igniter and shutoff. When the tech took it out, you could clearly see a burn in the circuit board. I was still able to use it by manually turning on the heat, but wouldn't go about it automatically

Drive at 8/10ths, shift 500 RPM before redline. Bringing the car home in one piece is your #1 priority. Don't be a hero, making payments on something rolled up in a little ball is no fun.

They have vehicle inspections in New York? I wished we had them in Nebraska. It would get some junk off of the road. But Nebraskans would consider that governmental interference in ones personal life and therefore not desirable.

The drive works fine in the original laptop. With ESET and Malwarebytes I was able to clean it up. Some malware had also set a proxy in IE and Firefox. I am thinking my drive to USB adapter might be the issue.
