WIFESCAR is an unknown quantity at this point
When holding a steady speed under a little load the car surges consistantly.Its not drastic but you can even see the fuel economy gauge move back and forth also.
All and all it drives fine but I dont know why it is doing that.
Anyone help?

Any "check engine" warning lights on?

Too many things could affect fuel economy. You'll have to be more specific. When you start the car and leave it on idle is there a really rich fuel smell from the exhaust? You may have some sensors that need replacing.

If the "check engine" light is on take it to the dealer have them read the fault codes. That should tell you what's wrong with the car.
