My only complaints about the 8th gen are kinda trivial. I wish the interior wasn't so plastic like. The 9th gen interior is nice. A heads up display should have been implemented... it was nice in my Grand Prix. The door mirrors are kinda small and could be bigger, but not truck like big. The LTZ 18" wheels are nice, but the offset should have been more like 40 and they should have been 8" wide. 245/45-18 size tires should have been stock... more selection and in most cases, better prices. I love that we can do Bilstein struts and Brembo brakes if we want. They got the power train right in 2012 with the 3.6 and 6 speed automatic, just needs some fine tuning, especially with the stock trans shifting. Overall, I love the car and it fits my budget. It just needs a little help to take care of some factory blems.
