Engine pops and sputters when pulling off. Once engine gets above 2000 rpms the engine runs fine. Car went to several shops, including two dealers before finding someone ( it was not at a dealer either) who could repair it. Cost me $500 to get the problem diagnosed and repaired not to mention the tune ups the other shops insisted the car needed.
Burns a lot of fuel black smoke stinks like fuel runs ruff at idle out on the road seems fine just Terrible mileage
