The vehicle consumed excessive amounts of gas, the vehicle only got 208 mile per tank of gas. The rear defroster works intermittently.

Failure Date: 05/15/2002

My car had something go wrong with the intake gaskets to where the plastic melted to the engine, the car had to be taken in for several days and the engine had to be taken out and cleaned and all of the intake gaskets were replaced. The car still does not run properly, when attempting to pick up speed or climb a hill the car does not shift and at times looses speed. This continues to this day, the dealer states nothing is wrong. The gas needle will read full and then the car will run out of gas this has happened on the middle of the highway leaving me stranded and several times around town. The dealer stated that they replaced the gas sensors. The car still does not run properly with less than half a tank of gas. The defroster, air conditioner and heat still after several trips in do not heat up or cool down the car. One day I had started the car half an hour before leaving and on the way to work the windshield froze up, the defrost had been and still was on high.
