Default 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.

Supposed to hold it in a certain gear or something like that, saw it on tv they didn't really get into much detail about it, the guy on tv said the 5 speed manual was more fun

Hold Mode
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.
Quote:
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.
Would be good for slippery roads and auto x?
