Even the simplest of things could cause rough idle and the engine light to come on... I would have it looked at before coming to the conclusion that the car is dying after only 2 years.

I would have diagnostics done to check the various sensors (temp sensor, speed sensor).... they could cause those symptoms and are not that big of a deal to fix.

Take it in for service and have the codes read. I'm betting one of the codes is causing the rough idle. And a rough idle is hardly "dying".

So you are saying you have had no major problems in the first 55k, and the first time you see the CES light, the car is dying? Wanna sell your dead car to me for $500???

What car company are you used to? Hyundai with a 100k warranty because of crappy parts?

...

Should be covered under warranty...and if you didn't get one...you are stupid
