    '13 NMS door lock issue

    The driver door lock on our car started cycling a lot at low speeds and blinking. We never checked whether the door actually locked. Mentioned it when we went if for the 23n5 a couple weeks ago and they identified a bad door lock, replaced under warranty.

    Most miles between DEF refill?

    Yes it started notifying at 1500 miles. When I added the fluid it was down to 900 miles. Just to be clear, 600 actual miles driven after 1500 displayed, it did not randomly lower the miles remaining.
