  1. leather seat covers

    I hate the velcro like nature of the fabric on my seats relative to my dogs hair. i want to add a seat heater and thinking I'll go all out and get a leather seatcovers for easier cleaning. Anyone replaced with anything they'd recommend or know of a good supplier for reasonable prices?
  2. Cargo Mat for Van Models

    They are about 2-3,000 less and it's not hard to see the content difference and feel the driving difference. Tons of TC's driving around our city and almost everyone compared to the Chevy (nissan) because we have a GM truck plant in our city. Most test drove both and then bought the TC, like me. Much cheaper feeling vehicle with much smaller engine and a rubber band transmission. (cvt) There's more there than there is about customs.
  3. Yeh, that's the sole reason for me to buy this versus a comparable earlier disk playing model for $150 less. I make deliveries and looking forward to having a 7" display with maps and voice control. No rear glass so I need a backup camera and the dash cams are just good idea these days for commercial vehicles. I'm hoping the back up cam gives me enough visability to skip getting a window installed in the right side door. If so I'll have paid for 1/2 the system in savings there.
  4. TC Towing a Backhoe

    LOL< Cool that looks like fun! I came to see what crazy mf'er was gonna haul a tractor.
  5. PLENTY of room under there! I got the Kenwood ksc-w11 self powered subwoofer and it fits' in the little storage space under the passenger seat but I'll probably put it under the drivers seat to keep the silly little storage space. Sub and rear speakers (JL Audio) , back up camera and dash cam came today. Head unit (Kenwood dmx7704s) and front component speakers coming separately. Gonna have it professionally installed. Can't wait.
  6. Is there a problem using their steering wheel controls?
  7. Not much there. Has anyone figured out how much height there is to use under the seats?
  8. Wheel Size Question

    Unless you plan to actually haul 1,600lbs (or something close to that) you don't need specially rated wheels or tire. The car weighs the same or less than a Fusion.
  9. Aftermarket Bluetooth

    My 2.5 is flex fuel. E85 loses more mpg than it saves equivalent $. Great for turbo's and hotly modified cars.
  10. What if your TC doesn't have steering wheel controls?
  11. Oil

    You're wasting oil that could easily go 4 -5 times that mileage.
  12. under the passenger seat? I"ve seen a couple of very thin (3" or less) small woofers in plastic housings with amplifier that look like they'd fit under the seat. Anyone tried one? They are small diameter (6-8") so not going for THUMP, just some actual bass noise. Like this: http://www.jbl.com/car-subwoofers/ https://www.shop.com/KENWOOD+KSC+SW11+Kenwood+Compact+Powered+Subwoofer+Enclosure+150W+Max+power+Wired+Remote+Control-1583085226-p+.xhtml?sourceid=298&CAWELAID=120179650037056799&CAGPSPN=pla&CAAGID=22435473779&CATCI=pla-65399634571&CATARGETID=120179650035805681&cadevice=c&gclid=CjwKCAjwmK3OBRBKEiwAOL6t1BW59QJCgBdHqOQOOT3Pzc7YZmZaQRiiiKKqrRuqeosQXXTcCZd4lBoCYGEQAvD_BwE
  13. E85 regular users?

    ALL the turbo's and high hp guys run E85 with special tunes due to it's higher performance capabilities. (cooler, less chance of detonation) No it won't give you equal mpg, yes it will make more power if the car has the tuning to take advantage of it.
  14. 2.5 breaks in

    at 6700 miles my TC is suddenly much smoother and peppier than it used to be! I noticed the idle seemed smoother and then i chirped the tires coming off stops a few time and I don't floor it. The top end performance is noticably better as well. Will see if the mpg change, currently avg 26.4mpg long term (math done, not the stupid inaccurate computer reading). Have liked the car a lot for a stripped cargo van, now I like it even more.
