I have a question that maybe you can help me with. I read somewhere on the web that if you leave the car sit for ten days without driving it you would need a jump when you returned. You could disconnect the battery before you left though and then it would be okay.

Also, the battery was expensive and need to be replaced after about 8,000 miles. The web page where I read this may have been talking about 2003 or 2002 models, if they had them then. Does anyone know about these issues?
