I have a 2018 SEL with just under 88,000 miles on it. Took me a little while to warm up to it, but the more I drive it the better I like it. Reliable, comfortable, economical and handles well. However, I have had an issue with it twice in the last four months. At low rpm/low speed with less than 1/4 tank of gas when coming up a slight hill, for no apparent reason, the Service Engine Soon light came on. This just happened again last night when I was driving home from a family visit. Everything worked fine, the car continued to run smoothly at all speeds for the next 150 miles and got me home safely. There were no other warning lights or indications, but the Service Engine Soon light remained on even after I stopped for gas and made sure the gas cap was tightened. Then, after getting home and letting the car sit for about an hour, I tried reopening and retightening the gas cap then restarting the car. This time the light did not come on and has not come back on since. I think it is a transient false alarm but since the closest dealership repair facility is over 100 miles away, I can't take it in easily to just have it checked out for a false alarm. Anybody else experiencing this? Any suggestions? Thanks in advance for your help.
