This was my first "tuner" car in 2000. 1993 V6 5 speed, LOVED that car! »
The Audi approached it much slower, I think the majority of those CUVs would have had the same issues had they done the same thing. The rest approached it much faster after the Audi. »
Yeah, dealers really helped with Saab. I have a Saabaru, and there is one dealer that's 4+ hours away that's willing to cut/program a key for me. One GM dealer in all of Michigan will do it, when the car was sold by G.M. »
