    Default Evaluation of C8, coming soon, ANY QUESTIONS ??????

    HI there,

    So, that being said, ask your questions here and I will do my best to find the answers for you.

    Allthebest, Paul

    If I were an owner I would be interested to know about service and repairs. What could I do myself with the powertrain in the vehicle such as fluid/filter changes and spark plugs, etc. Also how much labor is involved to pull the powertrain for engine/transmission/differential repairs. I think these might be the biggest concerns an owner would have in a mid engine layout.

    Ditto what LLC5 has said. I'm also interested in your thoughts on the complexity of the car and its systems.

    I'd echo the DIY concept. Most of us love working on our cars, even if it's just basic maintenance. But, mid-engine cars have a history of being difficult (and expensive) to maintain.
