General comments:Note: The photo of the car is similar to the one advertised and attached above.

In addition WHWN SHOULD WE ACTIVATE THE OVER DRIVE BUTTON ?
Best regards.
Your quick reply would be highly appreciated.
Problems:My Estima Lucida, even though was a second hand vehicle appear to have a gas mileage beyongd the average and i am very concerned about it.
I bought it from Japan last year and the gas mileage is more or less 20 to 25 L / 100 km in the city where there are sometimes traffic-jams.
This gas consumption has a negative impact on myy family budget. For me there should be a problem that needs to be fixed.
The specifications of the vehicle are as follows:
Year : 1998
Automatic , gasoline, 8 places, Engine 2.4 , 4WD GF-TCR20G

WHAT DO YOU ADVICE OR RECOMMEND ME TO DO

the over drive button engages the final gear .i.e 4th gears as it is a 4 speed auto.During normal driving.your car only utilizes 3 gears.

Note: Over drive is only to be used when in excess over 100Km.

As for the gas millage not sure

overdrive should be left On all the time (ie the OD light in the dash should NOT be on),,. except if you are heavily loaded/towing caravan and up steeper hills.
It is OK to turn Off OD (light ON) for engine braking down hill.
It is an additional gear normally engaged all time in all gears (ie its not a simple 4th)
