The lower ball joint (which is usually the toughest) is directly in front of the bottom bearing screw. In the rear, the half shaft crowds all three screws and has to be partially withdrawn. It's not...

I suspect you'll get an air bag code. I don't know if C6 air bag codes clear on their own. On some cars (such as Mercedes) they don't, so you have to use a suitable scan tool to reset the light.

Most cars, like the Honda, have a reverse mechanism that involves sliding a straight-cut spur gear into mesh. The main advantage is simplicity. The downsides are that it can crunch if you don't pause...

No harm. The "skip shift" or "CAGS" contraption gets GM on the numbers for fuel economy to avoid taxes. It locks out 2nd, but not 3rd or any other gear. You can disable it.

I'd say bad starter, or connection at the starter. If a good starter is cranking slowly, the voltage will be very low during cranking. But on our cars, when the voltage drops, the computer browns out...

Your tub should be fine. It's even farther forward than the back edge of the rear quarter panel. The impact appears to be squarely on the styrofoam energy absorber. If it's squashed they may want...

A parking brake or pawl won't stop any tow truck. Most cars are automatics, all automatics have parking pawls, and every tow truck can drag them away with ease.

Personally I think steering locks...

Change one at a time, and prop up the side you're working on with your back/body. It's pretty easy. Just make sure your tools are within reach.

If Chevy wants to do a phone app in addition to a fob, that's okay I suppose. For all you know, they will. But they need to provide fobs as well.

IANAL, but "as-is" has nothing to do with negligence. It appears the car was sent out the door with missing lug nuts or the mechanic failed to notice a gross deficiency with the wheel mounting during...

Don't make everyone's favorite gizmo standard. Let buyers configure the car a la carte. That also promotes modular design, which is a godsend for maintenance and modification down the road.

There are two level senders. One in either tank. Given your symptoms, your right sender is probably dirty and/or worn. Check the stored DTC code to confirm.

The touch screen was an option. It was not standard equipment on the C6. In other words, you had to go out of your way to get it.

There's a lot more wrong with it than just glare.

I think sports cars should have dark (as to prevent glare), hard-wearing, no-nonsense interiors where the controls fall to hand and can be operated by feel.

I don't think much of it is very good-natured. The level of feigned certainty is epidemic. Everyone seems compelled to pretend to know things they cannot know.

Original owner of a 2006 with 142K miles. I don't care for the C7 in the first place but I also tend to buy things I like and keep them a long time.
