I'm in. Well, partially. Need to turn back and head home in the evening, so probably won't be around for dinner.

The original battery in my Coupe died about two weeks ago, while parked in the garage. That would make just under 8 years of life, based on a 6/3/2009 production date. Worked on lots of cars in...

This car has been listed for quite awhile. Could be less than a month, but seems like it's been several months.

Looks like the fix-a-flat can has released its goo, like the original in my Coupe. The dealer had a heck of time getting the goo off the carpet--they had to hire an outside detailer.

Oh, and like Bill in BC, my 2009 Coupe still has the original battery. I plan on taking the remove-the-front-tire route when it comes time for replacement.

Hard to believe, but an Alfa Romeo 4C is even less practical than a Solstice, and only runs around $60-$70k, depending on options and Coupe vs. Spider. At least we have luxury items such as a glove...

Repair is still holding.

I did notice a sort of rubbing or squeaking sound, which I traced to the pipe insulation rubbing on the shifter rod. I removed the pipe insulation, and the 2nd gear...

Two weeks ago, I tried wrapping the shifter shaft with pipe insulation. May have helped a bit, but the 2nd gear rattle persisted.

Thanks Rob.

The car shifts perfectly, including second gear. So at this point the synchros are doing their job, other than making an annoying rattle (assuming the noise is the synchros).

Thanks. It would be great if other Solstice owners were to show up, but no need to put yourself out too much. It's just down the road for me, so I can attend pretty much any Saturday.

I've only been to this Cars 'n' Coffee once before, over a year ago. It wasn't like OC, filling up well before the start time. I think showing up by 0630 is more than adequate, maybe too early.

Exactly! Some 4.5 years later, I can say unequivocally the car was worth the wait.

Good to see you're still enjoying yours!
