    2017 1LT Spark
  1. My 2017 1LT is Toasted Marshmallow. The title says white, I say it is light grey.
  2. I am going to get the Curt hitch which is displayed in the link above, apparently it is the same as the GM part number and about the same price. I intend to just use it for the bike rack, but I too was curious about how much the drive train could take in a towing mode. Something tells me if you need CVT transmission work under warranty the GM dealer is going to ask if you put anything on that hitch bigger than bikes....
  3. After playing around with the Android Auto App, and the MyChevrolet App and the MyLink thing that also has a mind of it' own, I have totally given up on trying to get the touch screen in the Spark for phone/audio/navigation duties. Nothing worked properly. Internet searches about Android Auto as an example yield many bugs that Google just can't figure out. To complicate things, since I drive a tractor trailer for a living and have to use a hands free headset(BlueParrott 450) that device paired on my phone had a running argument with the myLink and Android Auto. They seem to battling for supremacy, with none of the systems strong enough to overule the others. Soooo I am have gone back to isolating the phone by uninstalling all the apps, just charge the phone on a separate phone charger and use the RCA plug on the phone into the jack. Since I drive 100,000 miles a year I am picky about my navigation systems, a Garmin GPS is light years ahead of any Google maps application. So that is over in the corner, if I am in the mood for internet radio it goes through the RCA jack, and the radio in the car is, just that a radio. Everybody is happy, and I use my BlueParrott headset just like in the truck. Better and clearer fidelity anyway.
  4. As of January 5 2018, Weathertech delivered front liners and cargo liner for my 2017 1LT in 3 days. Very happy with the purchase
  5. I too think the Weathertech liners are very well engineered with quality materials. You can go the knockoff route if you want, but there is a reason they are half the price.
