    Tires for a 2017 GrandSport

    It's time for new tires. I'm inclined to go with the Pilot Super Sports that came from the factory. The only issue I had with them is that they were Summer tires and you miss a lot of beautiful sunny but cold driving days in Georgia. Definitely going with run flats. Anybody have. any other...

    2006 Automatic 3LT Convertible

    I am the second owner of this 2006 Velocity Yellow convertible with a black interior and black top. I bought it with just over 19,000 miles on it and it now has just over 42,600 (and increasing slightly as we are still driving it). In addition to the standard feature that come with the 3LT...

    Assitance With Pricing a New Grand Sport

    We looked at an Arctic White 3LT GS Convertible this afternoon. MSRP is $86,570 and they are offering to take $8,000 off for a price of $78,750. I put together a cost sheet at Edmunds and it appears that this slightly below their cost of just over $80,000, not taking into consideration...

    Replacing Battery

    Everything has gotten so complicated. I have a 2006 convertible and am replacing the battery. I get the old battery out of the car with no problems. I pull the new battery out of the car and notice a little plastic bag on the side of it. I pull it off and read all about the wonderful world...

    30,000 Mile Service

    I've got the car at the dealer for the yearly oil change. While in they recommended changing the coolant (which I agreed to as I don't know what the prior owner did), changing the trans fluid and cleaning the fuel injectors. They assured me that the latter two are manufacturer's recommended...

    Oil Change Interval

    Do the new cars using synthetics require yearly oil changes or can you rely on the information center to tell you when to make the change? I've put about 10,000 miles on my car in the last 18 months. I changed the oil last year after about a year of ownership with the car showing a lot of life...

    Rear Spoilers

    I've got a 2006 Velocity Yellow convertible and am looking to add a rear spoiler. I've been looking at the ZR1 spoiler and the GM spoiler. If I had the coupe, I think the ZR1 spoiler would be a no-brainer. The way the "notch" lines up with the trunk lines and the lines of the rear glass looks...

    Outside Mirrors

    I'm having an issue with door mirrors that I can't figure out for the life of me. I get in the car, start it, put it in reverse and only sometimes, the mirrors lower to look down at the pavement. They don't go back up on their own but will go to the correct position if I put the car in park...
