Instrument cluster seems to be defective. In the uk, there has been a recall, not here in the us. (others have complained on online forums and at the dealership, four others have the problem and instrument panels are on order). I have a perfectly maintained vehicle and now the instrument panel (including the gauge and computer) are giving me wrong information. The "get fuel" indicator on the computer comes on at over 1/4 a tank and the fuel gauge seems to be off.

While driving at any speed coolant and engine check light illuminated. Vehicle started to produce white smoke from underhood. Took vehicle to dealer, and they stated it was a faulty hose in the cooling system. Dealer replaced hose, and that did not correct the problem.
