Default Do I really want my DIC ?!!!

Sometimes I think I'd be better off without my DIC !

Hmmm....well maybe not.

I'll just have to remember not to have it reading my mileage.
It'* too damn depressing.
That'* mainly due to the short trips in this hilly (hillbilly) mountainous town.
Justs gets warm when I reach my destination. I'm tempted to save it for long out of town trips but the wife likes driving it too much.

I have commented before about the poor mileage....14 mpg on average.

I decided to track my DICless Firebird mileage, just for comparison purposes.
For the same short driving conditions it only gets 7 mpg.

Considering the two cars are relatively close in performance, well.... within a second, the SSEi is pretty damn efficient.

1 second in 0-60 or 1/4???

y not take the Firebird, that way the tires would just be catching traction when you get to your destination

Both !

My Firebird is my daily driver....when it isn't raining.....you're damn right about the tire traction.
Wifey uses the SSEi.

I really prefer rear wheel drive but don't get me wrong, I love the Bonne'* luxury and attitude.
