Traded in

Traded in my 2006 ZX4 for a 2003 ZX3. This car looks much better, handles much better, the engine feels smoother, and included features my ZX4 didn't have - alloy wheels, rear stabilizer bar, fog lamps, leather wrapped steering wheel, tachometer, 6 disc CD changer, and probably a few more. I'm much happier with it so far.

Welcome to the forums!

Nice find! Hatches are the only way to go! Is that CarMax tags on it?

I love the way the front looks, specially on the ZX3. It's great driving down the street not seeing any cars that look anything like it (unless it's another ZX3 of course), and yes it's from carmax. It was a surprisingly pleasant experience too. They even removed the little dealer sticker, and took off the plate frames before I left.

Which one? Tinley Park or North Aurora? Tinley Park has a 5 door SVT that I had looked into getting.

It's only a 2.0, I wish it was the 2.3. my sister had an '04 ZTS with the 2.3 motor, and that thing was quick.
