Fuel Economy: Don't know. I just feed it and drive.

The only people who know about relative and actual frequency of problems are the manufacturers and they ain't talking.

You got that right. So the rest of the forums or mechanics opinions are really just hearsay. No one here really knows the failure rates as to a real percentage of nonfailure. The best part of the forum is that many here know how to fix the failure when it occurs to their car. That's part of why we are here sharing what we do know. Lets just not get carried away with conjecture about what we don't know.
