Had the timing belt replaced on the dealerships recommendation last month. Over the past three days the car has had trouble starting. Used booster cables one time but that didn't work. Disconnected the booster cables and the car started. This was last night. This morning it took a few tries and started but this evening it won't start again. Dashboard lights go on, power works, and starter goes ch ch ch ch but it seems like there is no spark and it won't start. Taking it in to the dealership tomorrow. Hope it starts so I don't need a tow.

Update from Jul 27, 2015: Took it to the dealership and they found a problem with the antenna. It was not communicating properly with the key dongle, so the immobilizer was kicking in and disabling the engine.
