bose sucks big time
ecc location seems out of place
dash goes kinda high on driver side (sometimes my gf has a hard time seeing over it when she drives
hud is a cool feature but does get in the way when you're going up hills
rear cupholders dont hold anything. period

I hate how much washer fluid squirts out at one time , way too much .
It'd be nice to have memory/heated seats .
GM really did a good job designing the serpentine belt & how to get it off.

Haha, no kidding. It seems the bad cup holder design has plagued all gens for many years.

Ok... Gotta toss some of this around since I'm wondering about some.

The seat height..in the SSEi'* its got so many adjustments. You can sit high or low. It would just take 45 minutes to figure it all out. Steve...play with those buttons on the center console...your seat can be higher...lol

How does the hud get in the way of going over hills?

Serpantine belt on the 96-99'* is a sure engineering feat. How could that get past so many engineers and not get improved upon?

Cupholders....The ones on the doors of 92-95 seem to hold much better than the super shallow good faith attempt at cupholders in 96-99. As for the center console cupholder...it rules! (guess mines just waiting to break..but so far it'* awesome)

a little info on the seat cushion. mine was like that also...it felt like there was no center butt support.

The problem: The springs that hold up the seat cushion are just a thicker wire and they dig into the foam which means that the foam sinks down.

the solution: I tooki 1.5" wide and 5" long strips of plexiglass and wood and put them between the spring and the cushion. this means that the spring was no longer IN the cushion but once again under it. Problem solved. Seat comfortable again.

Its all the way up to the MAX! I need new pillow cushining on it. 100 dollars is what the uphosltry place want. Another thing to add on the "to do" list.

Cupholders in the doors causing oversized cups to spill into my lap or on the seat after I get out. No center front cupholders (I drive lefty, manual habit)

Water pouring into the trunk from the spoiler drain holes. I'm not fond of the look of rear qp'* and trunk lid.

Where am I supposed to store my change? Slots in the doors are too small for even my girly hands, and the ashtray isnt big enough to keep it al, it rattles around in those useless cupholders. I end up putting it in the center console, where it slips into the rear air passage , and it takes me 10 minutes to find for the parking meter -_-

Setting off the alarm using a key to open the trunk when the doors are locked

The back windows only going down halfway.

I wish the instrument panel was more... cockpit.. ish.. like in the GA. The gauges on the right are just too far away

I loathe the HUD. I can't get it low enough to where I can still see the cars in front of me (Yeah, who'* in front of me? That'* right!)

The gushing of washer fluid is really unnecessary. Sometimes I just want a spritz.

Mechanically I hate that you have to remove the engine mount to change a couple pulleys, and that there'* no manual tranny :p


All of this has made me realize that I need to change my major when I get back to school. I'm going for Mechanical Engineering for sure!
