The non-profit publication, which buys all the cars it tests, said the problems mostly emerged after the sedan had been driven more than 10,000 miles. They included the center screen going blank after logging 12,000 miles, reducing access to most functions; a creaking noise from the roof; and iss...</div> <h5><a rel="item-license" href="http://www.sltrib.com/pages/privacy"> Copyright 2013 The Salt Lake Tribune.

But all that would cost more money, which UTA doesn’t have. So the board made seeking more money — through a possible sales-tax hike, restructuring its fares and even some novel appeals to businesses and cities — a key topic as it worked on goals for coming years. “We have enough money to run wha...</div> <h5><a rel="item-license" href="http://www.sltrib.com/pages/privacy"> Copyright 2013 The Salt Lake Tribune.

Some, such as on the agency’s budget, drew no residents. Even contentious hearings — such as one last month about UTA expanding into Morgan County — bring only about 50. But UTA rider Alex Cragun has managed to persuade more than 1,700 people, as of Friday afternoon, to sign an online petition asking the agency to restore and expand late-night bus and train service. “I was quite surprised.
