Re: Has anyone thought about buying an Automatic?

It's my first Chrysler so time will tell if it's a good call. I hear the online crowd jeering Chrysler, but who knows of they're just excited to hear their own computer keys clanking. yes, I recognise that I'm that way about Chevy. The irony is not lost. Chrysler vehicles that I've driven (when I w...

Re: Introvert or Extrovert

Just so happens that I just got back from a few days out on the road. Camped through a few places, seen a lot of new stuff; explored. It was blissfully relaxing. Just the dog and I; I never tire of his company like I do with all people for some reason. Something about dogs and their never-ending lo...

Re: Misc Thread VI: Return of the Threadi

Sorta like no matter how you prepare it, if you're in France and you toast some bread, it's French toast, right? Yup, toast. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SHptn_3RyYE However, we might end up not going - people are sick. :( Is anyone else having issues where the site logs them out randomly going b...

Re: Honest Engines

http://www.thetruthaboutcars.com/2017/01/mazdas-hcci-for-2018/ I don't know why I'm intrigued considering I'm a pseudo-luddite. Interesting post. I'm certainly interested - though like previously mentioned, I'm wondering how Mazda has managed to control the emissions compared to standard gas engine...

Re: Misc Thread VI: Return of the Threadi

It's so crowded there on the weekend that nobody goes there anymore. I'd try to get there early....really early....parking on the roof of Cobo Center (so close you can leave your coat in the car), getting your tickets and standing in line until they open doors to the exhibit halls. Then, see the ex...

Yeah, that happened to my sister when she bought the Yugo.

Ah yes, the only way they sold any Yugos.

Re: Honest Engines

Jalopnik has some details and discussion on this that suggest it is a matter of interpretation of requirements and not deliberate rigging of the software to pollute profusely unless it detects that an emissions test is in progress. I read a couple of other articles and it certainly is different fro...

You wouldn't catch me paying new car money for a Chevy though. Any time you're paying new car money, there ought to be an orgasm in it for you. Now if that's what 600+ horsepressure does for you, gopher it! You mean the dealerships to which you went didn't have the person in the back room? After yo...

Re: Misc Thread VI: Return of the Threadi

So, when you got the wheels home, you found they were the wrong bolt circle, right? :lol: Manager said "no returns" after knocking the price down for me, so that would be a real bummer, but I won't be able to test-fit until April when I take off the winter wheels/tires. However, it is a s...

Ruh-roh. Fiat Chrysler may have issues with their diesels too... The U.S. government is accusing Fiat Chrysler of violating the Clean Air Act on some of its diesel engines installed in about 104,000 vehicles. The Environmental Protection Agency accused the company of installing and failing to disclo...

Re: Misc Thread VI: Return of the Threadi

Had a cold spell here in Dallas over the last few days. Got down to 16. I drove up to southern Oklahoma for a day hike yesterday; it was fantastic. Spent a few hours hiking the woods tramping through about an inch and a half of fresh snow. Back to 70* by Tuesday. Crazy weather. We're about to have ...

Re: RANT: I have been looking for cars for too long and now I'm sick of all of them.

I love my car. Having a boring car is stupid. Why would you want to spend so much time in something you dont enjoy? I always laugh when I hear salespeople recommend getting a beater car to somebody leasing a nice vehicle. The rationale being to keep the miles off the nice car. I've had this happen ...
