Why is it everywhere I look it says the curb weight is near 3500lbs but at the last meet this kid showed me the sticker on the door and it said the car was 4000 something pounds. I'm I crazy lol did I read the sticker wrong?

Mine states GVWR at 1820 kg or 4020 lbs.

A gross vehicle weight rating ,GVWR, is the maximum allowable total weight of a road vehicle or trailer that is loaded, including the weight of the vehicle itself plus fuel, passengers, cargo, and trailer tongue weight. (from Wikipedia).

yeah, that's the gross allowable weight, the curb weight is around ~3400, I think dsb has the exact numbers posted somewhere.
