I thought of doing that but with the amount of times this car has had me in and out the dealership , and having to use other forms of transportation for work , etc ..I’m hesitant of other repair places option . I want the dealership to have documents of everything . I feel this time and money should be accounted for in some imaginary bill statement . Anywho , there was one time , the coolant resovior was leaking , about a year ago . The dealership replaced this and a few other radiator components . So I just found this incident a bit weird , I also understand I may be just a bit too concerned . I paid 14k back in 2014 and in total with the back loan , a high 15k. But shoot , if I knew of this future , I’d gladly invest the extra 4K pfor a different brand and model . I’d rather have a trustworthy vehicle than not knowing or how many Lyfts it takes to kill a working citizens bank account . Working as a substitute teacher in a big city , where commute is 10 min or more , no less , does not help this situation , makes it worse .
My last manual was a 1964 Corvair Monza (top end model). Living in greater Chicago for 37 years, I never bought another manual again, saving me 1 Billion gear shifts over 37 years. As for a speedster, my 6cyl Camaro could squeal the tires if I wanted to. And that was with an automatic. That car saved my life when the light turned red and I was halfway into the intersection, so I began finishing my turn, when I see a car coming straight at me at high speed in the opposite direction, obviously jumping the red light. By purely with reflex action I flicked the steering wheel to the right avoiding a horrible collision. The amazing quick & power steering on my Camaro did it's job.
Fantastic memory Mr.tozzi...correct you are! I am driving a 2017 Spark LS, 35 psi recommended. I could go to 40 psi, but that could make noticeably harsher ride, and extra punishment for the suspension components. Better to replace tires instead of shocks, ball joints and springs.
How much did your significant other paid for that Camry? I recently bought a new 2017 Spark which was listed for $14k, was discounted thousands of dollars, aprox $3000. So net $11,000. I bet I can buy 2 Sparks and have money left over from a Camry purchase.
Also, try to find a NON-dealer shop for such things as hose changes, brake jobs, etc after warranty expires.
I decided to join this forum in search of guidance to shed some much needed light in the painful past 3 years of constant recalls and dealership visits regarding my Chevy Spark 2014 . Just recently I noticed a leak coming from the front passenger side . After taking the vehicle to get diagnosed , turns out the coolant hose was leaking. I was shocked to hear this , yet another mishap involving this car . No where does it state in the maintence schedule , something like this is suppose to happen . My car also has 50k miles on it . Has anyone else dealt with a similar situation like this ? Can anyone tell me whatelse I should look forward to ? The dealership is the only place I allow to get my oil changed and routinely checked , this really came to me as a surprise , how did they miss this , yet another fire hole in my pocket , 287 dollars worth this month . A couple of months ago , it’s 250 regarding a battery replacement . My significant other happens to have purchased 2014 Toyota Camry and he has yet to take the vehicle in for anything , only oil changes . He happens to also work for the Chronicle for the city and finds this just as peculiar as I . Can someone share anything ?! Please and thank you .
Side note ! Does anyone know more information regarding the 2015 class action settlement for this particular model , 2014 Chevy Spark .
Im trying to paint the interior pieces in my spark. I want all the silver to be red. I know how to remove the steering wheel piece, and the door pieces. But i cant find all the screws or clips on these pieces. Can anyone tell me how many there are and where they are located.
