The EPA estimates 14MPG around town, but you'd be lucky to break double digits if you like A/C or have any hills in your town.

While driving down the road my vehicle shuts down on occasion. Interior lights, radio, dash panel, transmission and engine shut down while driving. Also door locks, lock and unlock. This has happened multiple times. Last year I was told that the problem was repaired after I was nearly hit at a high rate of speed when this occurred. This has recently this week occurred again 2 times.

Two issues: 1. dashboard cracked at airbag on passenger side and on drivers side. Airbag deployment appears unsafe due to cracking. 2. in hot and humid weather to, the traction and stability systems become inoperable and the message system requests that maintenance be performed. This message can come up a few minutes after driving or can come on right after starting the vehicle.

The electronic traction control and stability control lights showing they had been turned off came on, and the message display said service the same. Took to dealership and they checked for errors and reset computer. It has kept going in and out of operation sporadically for the past several months. Really no explanation. Have tried to find similarities in the situations when it is a problem. The incidents seem random. I have noticed that when I hit bump or dip in a road, it has become inoperative on several occasions. But it doesn't happen with every bump or dip. It also occurs without hitting a bump or dip.
