These things are not effecting its reliability or even my good opinion of the car, but do these sound familiar?
Suspension - on real cold days, going over a dip, there is noise in the back suspension. Almost like a grinding as the car goes up and down. A lube job did little to help.
Alternator - The colder the engine asnd temperature, the higher voltage on the gauge.
It is normal range, about 13 to 16 volts with engine running even over a 120° weather temp.
Cig lighter - On really hot days when the cab is very hot, the cigarette lighter will not stay seated when pushed in, I have to hold it in for it to get hot enough to light my smoke. (maybe the car is trying to tell me something)
Volts drop in gear - When put in drive or reverse - the voltage drops for a few seconds.
HArd acceleration - On hot days when the voltage is holding about 13.5 volts, if I hit the gas hard from a dead stop, the car shakes real hard the same way a clutch/manual does if the driver lets out the clutch too fast. Any other acceleration is smooth.
This may look like I am driving a POS, but the car is good, and these are just the little quirks. No major problems with it. Are these common in GM'*? I know, different car, but my taurus never did any of the above, not even anything resemblant of them.
