Anybody seem to have a lack of power with there 2.2L? Everytime I go up a hill seems like im not getting much kick, have to shift down into 3rd gear. Plus starting out seems like there isnt much kick either. Any ideas?

I agree with Mr. Goofy. If you were interested in going up a hill with a vehicle you made the wrong choice.

Yeah mine slows down hill too wtf this thing has no power going anywhere without the turbo. Maybe my blinker fluid is low?

Possibly. I'm thinking people are forgetting to weld their oil drip hole shut. Everyone is probably burning their engines out because they keep leaking oil. Weld those dudes shut. Make sure that oil doesn't leak.

As for the hills. just get in the emergency lane and throw on your hazards..... then just stick to first gear. The hill won't cause it to slow down anymore.
