Yah, my '01 had no grill on it. A big chunk of metal came across the divided highway & right into condenser. The new condenser, freon & a grill to protect it cost me $650.

Man, I wish that grill would have been there to begin with.

The two WORST were the green LED lights and the reverse beep. I think DRLs are horrible too, but that may be legally required now?

Oh I know... the GT seats are nicer than the GTS seats. rolleyes

and my sunroof isnt peeling, nor do i think its even discolored
____________________________________________________________

the trunk light is not near enough light to lite up the trunk

most trunk shocks/struts are not strong enough during the winter, or with aftermarket wings on the hatch.

another flaw are those stupid little plastic pop up screws, or how about all the plastic hardware on the car, just crap!!

Yah, the plastic cover under the motor. The guys at the oil change place ended putting them back on with rasptites & they of course came loose & the thing was dragging. Its in the rafters of the garage now.

the beeping is annoying as anything. i can't stand the DRL, and i have no control of fog lights. steering wheel doesn't move forward & back. the stereo wiring for the GTS...

beeping sux for you, but when someone else has to drive your car for any reason, at least they will know they are in reverse!

I dont mind the guauge colors not matching the console because im gonna eventually change my gauge face anyway... but I agree those little plastic snap on things SUCK so bad.
stock brakes are kinda weak too

I always tell valet people, "the beep is your friend" I cant count how many times my car has almost been driven through a wall or another car cause idiots try to reverse in 6th gear. lol even after being told you know this is a 6spd right? rofl

I always say to back up, put the stick where you think first should be and when you hear the beeping you're good to go. thumbsup

nah, what i meant was i have to turn on the low beams to be able to turn on the fogs. example, you can't turn on your fogs without your headlight are on...
