We have the same car HCH 2003. We have been jump starting it daily as of Sept 5th. We brought it in twice this week so far. After the first time, I didn't make it all the way home. Both times, the dealer tells me that I do not drive the car enough!!.
We had a new battery installed in June 06, the phase sensor control in July 06 and May 05.

Even though it is over 2 years since we bought the car, it was accepted for arbitration because our check engine light appeared a month after we bought it. We needed a new transmisson a few months after we bought it. And there was the 'recall' in summer 2005. We are now waiting to hear from the Lemon Law arbitrator.

If you had problem early on, check your state's Lemon Law. You may be eligible
