At long last I got to drive me car again. Took them over 3 weeks to fix, but you can't tell anything happened. There was actually a few minor dings on the bumper that are gone now since they replaced it :)

I was very happy to ditch the Chevy. After spending nearly a month with it I can't call it a bad car but I can't say it's good either. It just really did not suit me at all.

One thing I liked was that the 1.4L turbo really does accelerate pretty hard compared to our engines. Short turbo lag and then it kicks in hard. I wouldn't trust it's reliability and fuel economy was overall slightly worse but comparable.

Either way, was awesome to drive MY car to work tonight. Seems to still drive like it always has. Only thing I saw that wasn't right was they overfilled the coolant overflow tank. Well who cares, it'll just spill out the overflow tube. I had to get to work so I'll pull some out in the morning.
