    I got it a couple of days ago.

    After a long drive (so battery fully-charged) I re-started and drive off.

    Then SH-AWD failure. Then VSA failure. Then AFS failure.

    The dash was blinking a series of warnings and was lit up like a discotheque in a Xmas tree. I expected a stall-speed and altitude alarm to start as well, but they didn't.

    I ignored it, until I stopped at a set of traffic lights. Turn off for 10 seconds and re-started. All fine.

    Normally, it's a sign of a failing battery, but mine's only a couple of years old. So I stuck the conditioner on it; see if it recurs.

    Tell you what, though; the car feels very stodgy with the SH-AWD not working. Even at relatively normal speeds.
