I'm glad you like the car. I hope you enjoy it as much as I have. I definately had mixed emotions about selling it, but I'm confident that it's gone to good home and it'll continue to be taken care of. For everyone else here's a few pics until he can post his own. :) http://i266.photobucket.com/albu...

So Alpha's are coming to the US?!
Is the Cruze that bad? A downgrade from a Cobalt to me is a Cavalier, and those are pretty much garbage. Or do you mean from a performance standpoint?

Plus the CVT trans sucked all the life out of it. Right there! If you have trouble sleeping at night, buy a car with a CVT and go for a cruise before bed. My brother's Altima was just as bad with the CVT in it. I've driven Camrys that were more exciting. Unfortunately I don't think they're going aw...

They are, but the hub center is smaller than ours. And the offset is like 48 iirc.

If you can find one there is a trailer (u-haul had them) the trailers have built in braking systems that are connected to the tongue of the trailer. When the car brakes the trailer pushes on a hitch which hits a switch and causes the trailer to break. when the car lets off the brake and pulls away ...

I've seen tow ratings from 1200lbs to 2000lbs. I think you could do it, but be careful with the tongue weight, your springs really aren't going to take a lot of that. I'd also go real easy pulling out with it, being a manual and not plan to really use 5th gear. Other than that I don't see an issue d...
