No recalls on the SRT-4? Really I don't know.
It seems like a big deal but who remembers when the Honda Del Sol first came out and was quickly recalled for the same problem. It's just a bad run from a supplier. Better to deal with it now than to try to cover it up IMO. Remember these is pretty much a test car (let's work all the bugs out of it) for the Chevy Cobalt coming out the end of this year.
Welp, went and test drove my Redline today and it does not disappoint. This car is night and day to the ION. The engine is powerful, clutch is solid, shifter is smooth, suspension is IMO up their with the RSX's, however, what did disappoint me it the interest GM tacked on the car for leasing.
It ended up cheaper for me to lease an '04 Saab 9 3 2.0t than the Redline.
Picking up the Saab tomorrow.
