True. Yesterday it was reading 1/2 qt low after sitting all night on the concrete. Added 1/2 quart...... never started it, and 30 minutes later it showed 1/2 inch above the full mark...... demon possessed. LOL

A Mobil 1 car exlcusively.
Does not use oil.
Trans shifts like new.
Rear end still humming along.

Best car I ever owned. Hope the 2000 will be as good.
