Alert me when someone posts in this thread:

Have you driven both yet? Honestly, I'm glad I'm not faced with this choice. Color is important to me and that blue is such a great color. On the other hand, practicality says to go with the silver car. If you decide on the Aero, you shouldn't necessarily be worried about the 2.8 V6 engine. It's a nice engine, I've had my 09 Aero for almost two years. Paired with the auto trans it produces a nice smooth ride with plenty of power. The "overheating" is not engine overheating, but high temperatures generated under the hood by the turbo and close fit. Yes, some parts are sensitive to the heat, i.e. the coolant tank and related parts. I had mine replaced, but it wasn't terrible and I had it done by a good shop. Here's what I've done to deal with the heat; get rid of the plastic engine cover, it's a heat trap. Pay attention to cool-down after you park, depending on the outside temp, usage and a/c usage. Use mid-grade gas or better. Good luck on your decision.
