2012 Chevrolet Sonic LTZ: It's Like Christmas
August 10, 2012
We finally got the call we'd been waiting for: The replacement seats for the Sonic arrived at Harbor Chevrolet. The Sonic was on holiday and then on assignment with Erin for a few days. When Erin returned, we took the car in. The installation should be finished today.
The service advisor let Erin take some photos of the seats, still in their boxes.
As the shipping label shows, the seats came directly from GM seating supplier, Lear Corp., in Rochester Hills, MI. (As an aside, GM this year named Lear Corporation of the Year for its contributions to GM's success in 2011, choosing it from 20,000 GM suppliers. It was also General Motors Supplier of the Year for Seat Assemblies in 2011.)
Well report back soon on whether the replacement has cured the funky, fishy smell in the Sonic. Our noses are tuned up and ready to go.
