Given the fact that I am only at 1100 miles, I have long time to get prepared to face any challenging maintenance on my car. Chevrolet has had 3 years to build these cars, I hope they have taken the ease of replacement into consideration for the parts that are high mileage replacements.
any insight on how high octane fuel helps with removing spark plug? I don't understand how that would work
