I have a 2019 Rex with about 45k miles. I got a drive train malfunction which would prevent the car from moving. I would turn on the car and 'let the battery warm up'. Then I could drive the car. But then it would have a similar issue the next morning. Finally bring the car to the dealership. Can has very serious error codes. Dealer has to pull out the battery, motor, transmission. They are going to have the car for a while. l have an extended warrantee and dealer says it should cover the repairs. They don't know repairs yet.

But after 45k miles - the car is a brick. kinda like a blown engine and transmission in a gas powered car.
