Car sputtered and quit. engine light on an would not start.
Had to get towed to a service centre. Holiday everything is closed
Had to rent car. Being looked after. But very frustrating.
I understand things malfunction, just hope it's not a trend.

let us know what the cause was. I haven't heard of this happening personally.
I am going to say you got a bad / lemon car.
Yeah this is the first im hearing of an issue like this with the ATS, keep us posted on what it is. It just might be an isolated issue.
Update. Ats sat overnight at local dealer,
Morning tech goes out, car starts, they test drove
No fault, analyzer had fuel faults logged, they
