Over the course of about 3 months that's what mine did ... then it trended into a rough idle, then more hesitation at low rpms - it would kind of pause, then it died during start up once, then a few days later I got all of the lights.

Turned out to be a failing bank 1 throttle actuator valve - they have to pull the manifold to get at it.

This sounds plausible. However, since no warning lights have turned on, I will just wait until it gets worse (if it ever happens). The stealer will do nothing until some message lights up... Or the car dies in their hands... Thanks for your input!
