my cousin told me she and her boyfriend was crusing on 880 freeway(northern cal) yesterday night, and they encountered some loosing power situation. She said that the power seems to gone and back, gone and back for a couple times. They called a dealer and the dealer said they need to bring the car and let them test it.
Anyone has the same problem? she also mention some yellow light flashing on the dash board....

Descriptive subject lines are beneficial

Sounds like traction control kicking in.

The the car probably defaulted into safe mode... It happened once to our 540. It is usually a problem with the damn OBD sensors that detect some problem in the air/fuel/exhaust stuff and put the engine in safe mode so you can limp it back to dealer.

On our 540 it happened and we let the car sit and then it was gone with only the check engine light on... and the car ran fine and when we took it in it was some fault sensor bull $hit... hope that helps.

I thought of that too, and he said he was at constant 75mph, not doing something crazy...
