@  Francesco : (30 January 2015 - 11:20 PM) grandstyle? http://www.usedvehic...mGqvvmPGzzGLvBP
@  steveyfrac : (30 January 2015 - 10:15 AM) Oddly enough, my last smart I sold for the Cobalt... :D
@  SkydiverChris : (29 January 2015 - 02:15 PM) Cool, that's good to hear! I take delivery tomorrow. I will miss my Smart, but the lack of heat when it's colder than -20...I will not miss.
@  steveyfrac : (29 January 2015 - 12:40 PM) I had a cobalt, the Cruze predecessor. It was a great car.
@  dmoonen : (28 January 2015 - 07:01 AM) I think I test drove one three or four times.
@  dmoonen : (28 January 2015 - 07:00 AM) Oh fun. I like the Cruze's actually. . One of those rare gm vehicles I'd actually buy.
@  SkydiverChris : (27 January 2015 - 02:55 PM) Now instead of a used 2014 Civic, I bought a new 2015 Chevy Cruze. Exhausting week...
@  SkydiverChris : (27 January 2015 - 02:54 PM) For those interested, an advertised price MUST include ALL fees, except HST and licensing. Details here: https://www.omvic.on...InPricing.aspx#
@  SkydiverChris : (27 January 2015 - 02:53 PM) What a crazy few days...I bought a car on Saturday, and had to back out becasue the dealer broke the law. Bought a second car today after fighting with the first dealer to get out of their contract and get my deposit back.
@  jwight : (25 January 2015 - 08:46 AM) Can't be done legally and I'm not willing to do it any other way. Still, great price on a nice car.
@  SkydiverChris : (25 January 2015 - 04:50 AM) Hey Jwight, if you're interested, please feel fre to make an offer. I'm VERY negotiable. We take deliver of our new Civic this coming Saturday. I know a few people have imported the cars, but I don't know all the rules.
@  jwight : (23 January 2015 - 07:48 AM) Chris, that's a good deal on the car. If I could get it into the States legally, I'd consider it.
@  SkydiverChris : (22 January 2015 - 02:58 PM) FYI everyone, I just put my Grandstyle up for sale in the classifieds. If it doesn't go with the car, I have a KWP2000 and a STAR computer that I won't need anymore.
@  2006 smarty : (21 January 2015 - 12:47 PM) found it....right in front of my face :)
@  2006 smarty : (21 January 2015 - 09:05 AM) does anyone know how i can find/search a previous topic (lowering engine) in the how-to 450 model forum?
@  SkydiverChris : (20 January 2015 - 03:47 PM) If it starts rubbing again, I'll be doing it outside in -15c tomorrow afternoon
@  SkydiverChris : (20 January 2015 - 03:46 PM) Nah, only the rear passenger tire. I think that the adjuster got too tight. I took it apart just now and loosened the adjuster to last me the rest of the week. New brakes and drums are arriving in the morning. If it doesn't start touching again, I'll do it this weekend
@  Mike T : (20 January 2015 - 07:25 AM) frozen HB cable?
@  SkydiverChris : (20 January 2015 - 06:14 AM) Mine's been running great after all the starting issues last year. I drove to work this morning though with my passenger brake rubbing. Boy was that drum warm when I got to work!
@  SkydiverChris : (20 January 2015 - 06:08 AM) Hey everyone, it's been a while! Hope everyone car is still running like a whistle!

It stays on until you lock the car...any suggestions how to get it to turn off? This started last week and I have tried everything I can think of but that isn't saying much... :biglaugh:

Mine always stays on until I lock the car, or leave it for a while (a minute or something like that).Even if you leave a door open, it actually goes off after some period of time (5 minutes?)Later! Dang

I got a more obvious question. How do you get it to come on without opening the door? I tried the centre button below the radio but nothing.

Im pretty sure mine stays on for a few after closing the door...and fades when you lock it. it comes on when you double lock and turn on the follow home feature.

I tried to turn it off Cameron but no diff, thanks tho... :biglaugh:

I have also waited because it used to turn off after a while without locking the doors, now, not so much, have to lock it to shut it off. :dunno:

B service soon, will inquire if it is still happeneing.
