comment Software solutions to lighter flywheel issues
You could get away with that if the pistons and crank were made of lighter materials. But that would get expensive and hence manufacturers wouldn't do it except for very high-end models. Things are as they are for a reason. Usually economics.

comment Subaru Forester XT has a hissing sound under acceleration and lacks power
The question is really about how a Forester should accelerate, not really why it isn't. But It's not really a mechanic question anyway, so no hard feelings.

comment Where is Cadillac CTS 2007 3.6 OBD2 connector?
I don't know, but I had another GM vehicle where the connector was under the plastic panel by the gear lever. In most cars, they're underneath the steering wheel somewhere.

I really thought "oval speakers" only came in 6"x9". We just call them six-by-nines.
