Got my offer to rid myself of the VW, and am going to take it. Now to find the replacement, as the one I lined up to look at tomorrow sold. I found a back up, that’s an incredibly good deal, but it is black. I really want yellow or blue. I’ve got 1.5 weeks to find one...

Hadn’t seen that posted here, but it gets a turbo direct injected 1.3, with 177hp/200tq. The 2.4 is now standard, with the manual and 1.4 being dropped.

For the second time in the past 2 years, the speedometer decided to work.

Also, anybody have the free autocheck link that works? I found a car that seems quite perfect, and if VW would speed things up, I would like to move on if it checks out...

The Aveo has been bumped up on the list of the worst vehicles I have ever driven. I get you guys don’t want Mazda to die, but this thing is awful. It has the ride quality of the FiST with none of the fun. The FiST’s blast pipe drone was less noticeable than the road noise that this produces. The seating position…

It’s back, and it seems to be fixed(other than the paint, which is still being scheduled). No clunks, no drips. 25+ days of the absence was due to them not paying enough attention to the tool that they use to install the rear main seal, which was broken.

It’s been by far my favorite car I’ve ever owned, problems be damned. When I had it, it was absolutely perfect at everything it did. That all being said, as much as I…
