I have a new gripe about my FoST-when I turn the wipers on low it will transfer to aintermediate speed after a few minutes. I've never noticed it before, but I have to continually cycle the wipers to get a constant speed.

Both of those are calculated from using a round cell which is going to cost a lot more than a rectangular one.
I suspect few here are old enough to remember all the flack about the Pinto being a fire trap due to its fuel tank in the rear end blowing up in accidents.

What you are describing sounds to me like it would have the same problem.

Have you set up an appointment to talk with your dealer on this? If you do, please send me a private message with your VIN, mileage, best daytime phone, full name, and dealer name/location.

Just bought an ST and I have to say the fuel tank. Had an SE before and I thought that cars range was bad.

I really wish it had rain sensing wipers and autochromatic mirrors. Especially the wipers.
