Fun to Drive, but lots of little problem

Michelle, the hum may be the
idle air valve. When stuck open it
makes a loud hmmmm noise. The car is
fun to drive, excellent handling on
even pavement. Loses grip on
potholed/uneven surface. I have never
had a powertrain problem. It has great
sounds, especially when I replaced the
tires with quieter and equally grippy
Kumho tires. I have however had
many "feature" problems. My moonroof
stuck in the popped position 3 times,
the foglights burning out regularly,
every 6 months. The TSB on the dash
cover. The rear suspension squeeks on
cold days. The stock radio was weak.
The rear bumper fits poorly.
The engine sounds is great. The
handling is very good on smooth road.
The radio sounds awesome now that I
replaced it with all new speakers, head
unit and a nice sub.
Better fit and finish, more power
(stock it is very slow), needs to roll
and lean less in the turns, needs to go
on a diet and lose 100-200 lbs. Better
