It seems to run fine although I do notice a rough and erratic idle when cold which I understand is common. I have not replaced the motor mounts yet. The vibration is sort of annoying but I can live with it for now. The biggest thing is the fuel economy now that gas in California is higher that a kite. Any ideas would be appreciated! Have a good weekend.
