Thanks for the welcome. Your theory weighed heavily in my choice. Never had the 2.0T in the household but had 2 2.2L EcoTecs. one in the hhr and the other in my wife grand am she had. both had 175k when we got rid of them. Im optimistic.
So far not a huge fan of the "auto stop" but getting used to it. Question starter longevity. The fact that the DIC doesn't stay on the page you left it on when you turned it off annoys me.
I've never thought about the issue of staying on the same page because mine is always on the digital speedometer when I turn off the motor and it's there when I start up again. To do a test I went out ,cranked mine up (speedometer showing) and put it in the Navigation mode. Turned the motor off, got out of the car, got back in the car,cranked it up and lo and behold it was in the Navigation mode. Apparently mine stays in the mode that it was in when you turned the motor off. Learned something,Thanks
Just started the car. Went to the page I wanted. Shut it off got out and locked the car. Got back in and it went back to he speedo. I then navigated to the mileage page. Hit the check mark. Shut it off. Got out. Locked the car and then got back in and started it. Stayed on the mileage page. We shall see if it’s still on the mileage page when I leave work.
Mine was built June 2017 and it stays on whatever screen I had selected when I shut it off. My wife came in one day and said, "How do I get it of Oil Pressure?" I had left it there the last time I had driven it.
I moved my screen to navigation yesterday and after sitting overnight my screen was still on navigation this morning. Looks like it stays in the same position that it was left in, no moving back to speedo. Built Oct.2017
