    Recently my active driving display hasn't been coming up. When the car starts it either comes up and goes back down or doesn't come up at all. Yesterday it wouldn't come up at all and today it did it once when I drove it. Anyone else having these issues? Is it a mechanical or software glitch?

    I have a iGT hatch with the BOSE system. Even at easy listening music with slight a bit of bass, my door handles rattles like a champ. :frown2: anyone else seeing this issue? is there a fix? At this point, i'm thinking about removing it and applying sound damping material behind the door handle...

    Hi all, I'm hoping to buy either a 2014 iGT or a 2015 sT (manual hatch either way) within the next couple of months. The decision will basically come down to whether the extra oomph provided by the 2.5L engine is worth the ~$2k premium (not to mention the extra fuel cost), which is obviously a...

    I put over 5K miles during July 4th week doing cross country driving to LA and coming back to Indiana. Some factoids about the car (MZ3 6spd) from the trip: - when passing in single lane highway, must downshift to 3rd, hit redline, then shift up to 4th while still passing - long term high...

    Yesterday, I took my car for a long drive with a half tank half empty. While coming back I forgot to fill it. With the gas symbol on I checked the gauge for potential miles I can drive before my car end up at the side of the road. With 18 miles on, the nearest gas station is 25 miles away. I...

    I know the touch is disabled while driving, for instance while trying to enter an address into the navi. This continues to irritate me as the voice recognition is not the greatest. Most of the time when I am trying to enter an address I have a passenger in the passenger seat. Why can't the...

    This is the 2nd day I've had my itouring manual trans hatch and we got dumped with about 5-7 inches of snow. The car drives surprisingly well in this weather and I was barely slipping around even in deep sections of unplowed road through 90 degree turns. Needless to say, I was taking the corners...
