2012 Chevrolet Sonic LTZ: Detachable Shifter

January 30, 2012

OK, our new long-term 2012 Chevrolet Sonic LTZ's gearshifter doesn't really detach but the other night while driving the car and trying to quickly do a three-point turn in the face of approaching traffic, the cover for the shifter did pop off. Not the best moment for that to happen.

But, not to worry, it's not broken. The little hooks for the plastic trim didn't break off so I was able to slot it back into place. And the cover hasn't popped off since but just wanted to point out that it did.

*FYI, I took the Sonic to the car wash today so no more dirty floor mats.
