Approximately 2 months after purchase, the gas dial would not read full even when the tank was practically overflowing with gas. Took to the dealer who said it was corrected, however periodically it will go weeks without reading a full tank of gas. Check engine light comes on periodically for no reason at all. Have taken to dealer who can not find problem in system.
