I like it
There has been a slight pinging noise especially when the vehicle is under strain like when going up a hill at low speeds. The noise disappears if I accelerate more. I took it to a mechanic who checked the timing belt which was OK, changed the gas filter, spark plugs and air filter. The noise disappeared for about 2 days, but has reappeared. I tried using a fuel injector cleaner, but that doesn't work. Matter of fact the gas consumption has increased since those changes were made. Not sure what to do next!!
I love the car. The handling/cornering is great. And the 4WD is wonderful for me for I live on a dirt road and it rains a lot. this vehicle handles it with grace. I am looking for a way to reduce the fuel consumption.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Don't Know
