Problem with the dsm's in eastern Canada is they're all rotten out within 10 years. The eclipses are known around town as a money pit, rule of thumb is if you drive for 1 hour, you'll work on it for 4

Just remember you'll have to build those engines at about 100k just because of crankshaft walk.
This is by FAR false. There is NO truth to this statement. Crankwalk has nothing to do with mileage at all. Crankwalk has been determined to be caused by putting a strong aftermarket clutch in a car without giving it the proper adjustment.

seen the new trucks and GM putting a plastic paneling underneath and ya need a special tool (in which the dealer only carries...) to access your undercarriage totally BS
good idea but bad for access the undercarriage for the local mechanic

I garuntee a local mechanic will be able to buy that tool tho. They did the same with transcooler lines and they sell the one time use adapter to local mechanics.

nope, actually there is a lower trim which is the base but it was only available for 2005 then they chopped that and made the ls the base.

The base was also known as the XFE and nothing else in 08, it was an LS except without AC and only with the manual.

How hard is it and what's the step to install the fogs on a Cobalt that don't have them ? Also, how much does it cost ?

Yup, manual everything, less aggressive fuel maps and a taller 5th gear ( only comes in 5 speed)
