There's been numerous threads on problems with our cars, gotta use the search button sir! The only problem I have is the rattling from the exhaust. Fix it by sound deadening your car I believe which I may do at some point.

I think OP wants to make a thread that lists every problem for the koupe, so either him or future members can look through it and find/fix the problems that are most common.

Not a bad idea, just wouldn't be organized. If the thread ever got popular, you would have to be scrolling through pages just to find the solution to a problem.

if you go over 30 mph and hit a bump on a certain angle, the muffler falls off the hanger, and can puncture the gas tank leading to a huge explosion! (rolls eyes)

If you're talking about when your fan is turned "off" and there is still air coming through then that can be solved by switching from fresh air intake to the circulating setting. Having the fan turned off but still having it set on fresh air intake is like having it on "ultra low" and tuning it to the circulating setting will cut off air flow from the vents.

also, if anyone has ever been able to smell thier washer fluid when they use it (only noticable with certain brands of fluid) then switching to the circulate setting before using the wipers and waiting a bit will keep the smell out. The dealership had said that this is due to some of the washer fluid getting sucked into the air intake.
