Vehicle condition and repairs.
14. Detroit Milestone sports totally new damage system. When in ideal condition, this vehicle doesn't overheat, or break down. However, when driven violently(i.e. over-revving, burning tires, and so on), it begins to recieve damage that will affect vehicle performance, and can lead to fast overheating, breaking down, backfiring, high fuel consumption, and so on.

15. To check how good your vehicle is doing, click its body to get a menu, then go to "Vehicle", and select "Diag Data" option. You will be presented with some data such as fuel level, level of damage, and level of battery charge.

16. When your engine breaks down, you can click it, select "Repair" option, and perform a fast repair to make it running again.
Once overall damage level goes over 50, you will be presented with another option, "Major repair", that allows you to remove damage from your vehicle. This operation takes quite a time(removing 100% damage takes 100 seconds), but can be aborted at any time, so you can remove just part of the damage and be good to go.

Certain custom parts such as supercharger can affect engine's durability, so it damages faster, as well as takes less time to overheat, and consumes more fuel.

17. This vehicle can give room to 5 passengers and a driver. However, you can decrease this number to 5 total persons by lowering an armrest on front bench, so there will be no room for middle passenger in front.
