Yep, that’s still a turbo 1.4l. AND yep - Someone just drove the crap out of it! Last weekend at the High Desert Trails Performance Rally in Ridgecrest, CA - Ray Piloto & Brock Palmer cleaned house by showing that 2WD’s, 1.4l turbos, and more importantly, a properly equipped and driven Rally Sonic is anything but slow.
I was going to post this as a comment here but figured it would be better as its own post. Working at a dealership gives me daily access to every vehicle currently made by GM. Here are my impressions of them all, starting with the super-cheap and working up.
This game has aged like rotten milk
Finally got some of the pictures from a couple weeks ago. Contains Sonic, Buick, and STi.
What are your thoughts? I'm referring specifically to this 2012 Sonic with 142,000 miles that popped up at a dealer in town. Only $7,400 though! How bad of an idea would that be?
And with those tires, I'm going nowhere fast today.
In this review: GOTTA GO FAST!
Quick question because I know a few people here have Sonics...
Sonic drive-in that is.
Thanks to Max Lo for taking these. More can be found at his facebook (search Max Lo Automotive Photography).
I'm working at a different dealership than usual today, and it just so happens my main location had a car that needed to be shuttled to the place I was headed. Seeing a few gallons of free gas in my future, I took the car home last night so I could drive it to the other lot today.
What follows is a small memoir of my first year with my 2013 Chevrolet Sonic RS. It also serves as my message of gratitude and appreciation towards the awesome opposite lock community.
I promise I'll share my pictures from now on.
So I can Oppo while I oppo.
Just picked up my rental/loaner. First thoughts, the blinker is obnoxiously loud and the steering wheel feels like the hollow plastic tube that it is.
It happened this morning. 10,000 miles. While rolling over the odometer isn't as special anymore now that it's a digital display instead of a physical dial, the occasion is no less significant. This morning I added a 5th digit to my cars mileage: the big 10,000 miles.
...so I drove to Sonic in my Sonic while listening to Sonic
This is why we can't have nice things.
I would like to thank Jayhawk Jake for alerting me to the existence of Headlight Armor. Yellow highbeams FTW. Also, did the DDM Works intake today, and have the shifter bushings in my drawer waiting for me to tear the center console out again. Next up is either wheels/tires, cat-back, or coil overs. Tune is scheduled…
