Yesterday I canceled my order for a 1.8 L, SXT sport caliber and instead placed one for a 2.4 FWD RT. Keep in mind I had already waited approximately 8 weeks for the 1.8. After 8 weeks it was still in D status. Anyway, the dealer still wanted to sell the 1.8 I had ordered and my wait time got reset to 0. I feel a little dissapointed that my car is going to take an additional 2 months, but I wanted something I was going to be happy with for 10 years. As I'm moving to Blacksburg in the next month or so, I didn't want to have a Rolls-Can't-hardly on my hands with the 1.8 L. Blacksburg has a lot of steep hills and I was afraid the 1.8 would "Roll down one hill and hardly get up the next." Anyway, if the 1.8 L acts like a 2.4 AWD in terms of acceleration, I can't wait to try the RT FWD with T355 manual. Anyone know what acceleration is like with a 2.4 L manual?
