 Description of the problemAfter starting the car after it has been sitting for 8 hours or more, it seems the turbo charger was not engaged. No engine fault light was on and the power was diminished. If you stop and re-start the engine everything would be back to normal with the turbo charger engaged. Eventually this procedure stops working and you have to take it to the dealer for them to adjust the turbo. The safety aspect is if you feel you have full power pulling onto the highway and then suddenly you don't, then an accident can happen. The first time this happened to me i got into my car at work and it started fine. When i pulled into traffic i could feel something wasn't right and the car barely moved yet the engine revved to over 4k.
