That is a bummer! Just curious, did the display say that you had insufficient power in the battery to use the drive? Others have had this and it seems to be related to the battery pack's cooling system. Fun to have the latest gear, but sucks to be a Beta tester. Most everyone here has signed up though.

I'm wondering, did you get the tow truck through Onstar, or the GM 800 number, or did you use something of your own, like AAA?

No, I'm sure the battery was charged, it's just that with the other folks that had a problem, something malfunctioning with the battery cooling system, or the battery pack itself caused the display to claim a dead battery and therefore it would not allow you to engage the drive system.

RE: Dead Bolt

We're tuned in. Hope it's resolved fast for you. Sounds like they are taking it seriously if they are flying specialist in.

How was towing service?
