Yes, that gets back to my original post and question. How many NON-Cruise cars are out there with 2.0L and stick?

USA NA market sales brochure tells you this.
LX Trim Sedan only no Koup version Cruise NA at all and could have 5spd stick with 2.0L
EX Trim Sedan/Koup versions Cruise standard and has 2.0L and could have 5spd stick.
SX Trim Sedan/Koup versions Cruise standard 2.4L as well could have 6 spd stick.

So only a LX Sedan 2.0L Stick No A/C No P/W No P/L-Keyless could this TSB apply to. And never to a Koup. You want all that stuff to make a BASIC car we all have come to know and need (some demand) to drive and you bought a EX anyway and this is moot.

I have an LX sedan 2.0L with no A/C, no P/W, no P/L and no cruise because that is exactly what I wanted in a car. So I know there is at least one out there. Thanks for the heads up and I'll be contacting my dealer about this on Monday.

EDIT:Hahaha My Bad!! reading comprehension failed me there for a minute.

From what you're saying, I gather that USA and Canada don't sell the same cars because here in Canada, we can't get a Forte without power windows and power locks, even without ABS, it's standard on all vehicules. If you want A/C and you drive automatic, you can add it to the basic model (LX). But if you drive manual and you want A/C, then you have to buy an EX, and that comes with all sorts of other features (cruise control, electronic stability control, traction control system, etc.). And here also, the LX and EX come with the 2.0L engine, the 2.4L is only for to the SX version.

In any case, I understand better why there's a TSB for EX cars with no cruise control. Thanks.

Just one question : are all those versions (LX, EX, SX) available in the US ?

WOW either you paid out the nose for nothing ON a EX with a Base MSRP of $15,995 when a LX has a Base MSRP of $13,695. Or as I suppect you or someone else up there in NY played the badge game to someones misfortune. Jury still out whom's messed up more. Or we can assume you have a commuter special LX like your profile told us. If not see if that dealer has a 2.0L 5spd no A/C,no P/W,no P/L and no cruise 15 inch with hubcaps SX Koup too.

Or yes never said there were none. Just how many and 10 (yours and 9 others) in the country is not alot for this TSB to be worth much.
