ALL mechanical devices/vehicles have issues, it's the warranty and how they handle them that make the difference. So basically they were right, why go in there busting balls when they don't want you to have problems either and it's certainly no fault of theirs. You're also cutting your fuel mileage by using a higher octane fuel than recommended. 87 is the proper octane for your motor, premium designed for high compression engines will only give you incomplete burn, less power and lower mpg irregardless of the marketing campaigns of the fuel companies.Report it
I also have the AWD 4 cyl....with a K & N High flow air filter and Mobil 1, we are are getting 27 /31 mileage. Have had no trouble with the AWD system and no complaints at all except for one thing ....Ground Clearance is to low for an AWD vehicleReport it
1) You're over-reacting vis-a-vis the vehicle. You had a problem, and that's maddening. I bought a Honda Civic years ago, and had trim problems with it right away. I thought I'd been conned by Honda's reputation. 150,000 miles later, the reputation was richly deserved. 2) You are mis-reacting vis-a-vis American built vehicles. To never buy an American car again because of a transmission problem and an insufficiently abashed service rep would be like refusing to buy American produce because you got a wormy apple. 3) If you think letting GM go bankrupt would have been a good idea, you shouldn't be buying American anyway, since you have no concern for - or at least no understanding of how to act upon concern for - the many many American workers who depend on a functioning auto industry. Sorry you got a bad apple.Report it
