Not a fan sorry, too pricey, too slow too heavy and the lights! They look like the plastic covering it all broke or fell or its missing. If u love it then thats all that matters! Enjoy it!

Congrats on the new car! Looks good. I myself can never convince myself to buy brand new, to big of a dollar hit off the lot.

sure man everyone has their tastes! and for the price I'd love to see another car that offers the same for 22K msrp.

Also its 0-60 is 8.8 the svt is 8.6
the curb weight is exactly the same
and yes the lights are something that I didn't really "fall in love with" but i got over it.

I went from a zx3 to this lol its like going from nothing to everything..

apples vs oranges... But the sonic t does 0-100 in 25 seconds... the svt is 10yrs old and they dont sell them anymore, but u can get a fair one for $4k, dump 3k into it and have a 12 sec car

Hyund veloster is 19k, the turbo is 23k-24ish (was at the dealer last week) more power, better car

Scion tc $19k, my wife has one, more power, better car

focus st1 is $24-25ish?, def more power, better car

Ford fiesta st is $22-23ish? more power, better car

And so on... Many more better options if it came to that in ur case

I wish chevy made the RS in blue. My wife's ltz looks awesome in blue. Feels bigger inside than the fiesta and roomy in the back. Hopefully with the aftermarket the car will wake up a bit. Plan is to trade in for RS after she puts 35k on it this year.

i cant help but thinking My svtf feels way faster when I drive the chevy at times.

I think someone stole the back end of your car. There seems to be a few feet behind the rear wheels that have gone missing.
