This type of issue could be related to some pending updates that the Car thing may have. To make sure this is not causing this behavior, we'd recommend taking your Car Thing indoors and connecting it to your Wi-Fi network at home to force the update. It'd be best if you leave the Car thing connected for several hours to check if you notice any difference after that.
Hope this helps. Let us know how it goes.
