Yes that me too . car just doesn’t Like too many small trips . throws a tantrum and won’t start. Just got to hug it , say “I love you” and wait 2 hours and it’s all smiles again . Cars have feelings too . I forgot. And they will let you know if you forget. Patience and love and appreciation fixes this problem every time.
