    I think it happened...cracked fuel injector

    From the research I,ve done on the 1.5 Dragon 3 cylinder engine it is programmed to go into lymp mode and deactivate any cylinder that is not functioning properly so you may have been running two cylinders to protect the engine.

    Auto Start / Stop not autoing.

    Thanks, Most definitely agree on frequent oil changes most likely 4000 or less and Full Synthetic. There are several you tube videos on the subject of frequent oil change intervals.

    Review: I got the chance to sit in one!

    I currently have the BSBB 1.5 and have only had it for 40 days. It is fun, plenty of power and I only use Ethanol free Fuel at 89 Octane and get up to 32 mpg. In traffic s/s it drops by 2 mpg to 30. I previously owned an Escape 1.6 2013 and got 25 mpg in town . Everything depends on your method...
