For this week, I’ve got a 2017 Chevy Sonic LT 4dr with a 1.8 liter blender under the hood. It’s got New York plates, 25,000 miles on the clock and the steering wheel is nice n’ sticky.

Why do I have a rental car you ask? I bit the bullet and sent the Tiguan off for a new turbocharger. The freaking POS K03 wastegate is a POS and on this car it couldn’t quite hold the full requested boost under WOT. My previous diverter valve replacement made a big difference, but I still felt like the power wasnt 100%.

Hopefully, the Tiguan will be all nice and peppy again after replacement.
