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.

When idling at a stop light the car continue to pull ahead as if I had my foot on the gas petal. 2nd item: Developed a crack on the passengers side dash board close to the air bag cover. Both items rattle when I'm driving.

problem #1

  • 40,030 miles
While driving approximately 70 mph. Vehicles engine and instrument panel cycled on and off randomly. Noting that once I was able to pull off the road and come to a complete stop the vehicle finally shutdown. Furthermore attempting to turn the truck on only resulted in flickering electronic equipment with no response from the engine. Two weeks following this event fortunately enough after the vehicle was parked we noticed that electric folding mirrors weren't responding to the push button actuating the folding mirrors feature. This event we were able to get on our camera phone. Same flickering of electronics and again the engine didn't respond, turn over. In both occasion it was only after sitting approximately 30min. That vehicle finally responded and turned on.
