Well i moaned and complained enough about the thought of a transmission going out sooner than it should. Now its time to just enjoy this car and let happen what may or may not happen. Im under warranty for quite some time and that feels good.

On to my modifications.Just today i installed front and rear OEM mudguards. They go on very easy once you decide enough is enough and jack it up and pull the wheel off. They may reduce mpg but i like the way they look. I didnt just buy this car for mpg so im willing to sacrifice some for looks. If i wanted just mpg i probably would have stuck with a prius. The mpg is better with the prius but its not near the car this cmax is. I also have AVS brand in channel vent visors to intall, color matched body side molding, and a rear bumper protecter. I almost forgot, soon after purchasing the cmax i installed the husky weatherbeater front and rear floor mats. They are great by the way. They were also cheaper than competitors. Wish me luck on the install of the stuff that sticks on with tape. I can be picky at times if i dont get it on perfectly straight. Hopefully it goes on without a problem. The directions seem good so that a plus.

I installed the AVS in channel vent visors today. Very easy install. The only issue was the windows want to auto retract when they bump the visor on 2 of the windows. I am still able to fully close the window if i just stop right before its fully up and then just roll it up the rest of the way. Dont ask me why this works but it does. Hopefully as they mold into position for awhile the problem will stop. If not then its not a huge issue as i can still roll them up completely.

I don't think the mud guards hurt FE very much, I have them and still have the best mileage on a tank of gas. :)
