      I can go an hour in one direction, which would probably be worse, or two in another and pray I don't end up stranded. Tallahassee is middle of nowhere N. FL. I should have just waited and bought a...

      GM right now can't manage to keep up with the demand. The dealers are swamped and are just blowing people off left and right. It's crazy.

      It's a new trans, that's for sure. It's a design flaw that gets worse with heat and my pleading to use at least 90W oil as is spec'd in Europe instead of the 70W GM uses in the US was met with "It'll...

      First thing I did, on the '13 there's no need for a 5mm pin, it has a push in plastic piece that will tell if it's in alignment and according to that it's fine.

      31/41 with the 1.4T 6MT. It's super easy to get 40mpg in the city. Hell, I've averaged 53MPG cruising at 55, but what do I know. I just drive the ****er everyday.

      I did pick my car up today. They...

      I loved that place and haven't been back since they moved locations a number of years ago. I should check it out sometime soon.

      Problem is they won't be open until Monday. Maybe you guys aren't getting it, but since Thursday I've put about 70 dollars worth of gas in these rentals. Sure, some of you say 70 bucks isn't too bad...

      I had a black '05. It was a fun car. Decent brakes, decent suspension, and it made both torks and powahhhhhh through the rev range. The LSD worked great, the 6 speed was smooth as glass.

      Maybe, but it didn't start getting bad until after 1k miles. All of the cars I was able to test drive were automagics.

      I'm just waiting for a recall on the Sonic's non-RS 6MT. God damn things are like driving a 40 year old transmission with 300 billion miles on it. After reading the issues with the euro spec parts...

      That's a stock photo just showing the interior. It would be an automagic stock photo, which actually seems to be more reliable than a manual for once.
