looking at a 2012 30k miles coupe with the 6sp auto for something to go to the track and drives weekends
The noise just happens when you are turning at low speeds, and that fix didn’t do much to fix the noise on my car! It’s just a clicking noise during low speed turns, and I only really ever heard it in reverse.My brother has a 2014 V, it's all stock and has 40k on it. The only stuff he's had to do is normal maintenance, tires and oil changes, it went for a recall for the lug nuts because they still use those tin covered nut and the tin came loose and rattled.
I love when people try to talk about how reliable something is and then list like five things you gotta to do to keep it from grenading.Pretty ridiculous first 4 replies, but I guess some have merit.
They are extremely reliable cars in stock form, but the rear usually gets a little noisy after you make a couple passes. The engine and trans are both great to around 800-850 flywheel, 700rwhp. The rear will get progressively noisier. They hold up for quite some time at this power range, minus the awful noise. Do not touch the trans tune unless the tuner is highly capable, and there are very few guys that know what they are doing. Most trans problems comes from the tune. The LSA is a solid engine.
The ultra view sunroof leaks if not addressed, and you also have to unclog the drains every now and then. I pulled my sun roof and headliner and installed larger drain tubes. Mind you, my cars are garaged so it’s not like they sit outside 24/7.
The supercharger just needs the solid isolator, and when you pulley it, do it at that time.
Try to keep the stock manifolds because if you do longtubes, you are going to eat sparkplug wires. Even with good ones, a couple of the plug boot areas start melting.
Other than that, they are mechanically and electrically reliable. They are awesome cars and my only real gripes with them are the ever increasingly noisey rears and the lack of room in the backseat.
I really don't know how you got ANY of that out of my post. What exactly is grenading?I love when people try to talk about how reliable something is and then list like five things you gotta to do to keep it from grenading.
And they are always nobody who actually owns one.
