Canada'* import for other countries (even the U.*.A.)
Whoo hoo Pontiac Canada has come out with a new car for 2007 that is under $15, 000 and is only available in Canada. All others will have to get it imported. It'* called the Pontiac Wave and for a cheap car it looks pretty cool on the inside. The twin to this car is the Aveo but only the rear ends look similar. http://www.gmcanada.com/gm/english/v.../wave/overview
If your vehicle'* transaxle has hold mode, you can select this mode to drive with some characteristics of a manual transaxle. With hold mode turned on, the automatic transaxle will stay in a specific gear range.
Press the HOLD button on the shift lever console to turn on hold mode. Press the button again to turn off hold mode, and return to normal automatic transaxle operation.
When hold mode is activated, the transaxle is fixed in the gear selected.
This smart little feature is integrated into the available four-speed automatic transmission. It helps reduce wheel spin and loss of traction when traveling on slick roads by allowing you to select a higher gear to reduce torque. You can also use it to help you maximize control on hilly or twisting roads by remaining in a lower gear.
