While driving the vehicle the speedometer gauge, gas gauge and/or temperature gauge will begin moving erratically. In the event it is the speedometer - it will appear the vehicle is traveling at 110mph when it is really going about 30mpg. It happens one or twice a month and there is no way to repair it that I am aware of. It is very dangerous because the sudden change in speedometer can cause a wreck or crash.
