Re: Random Videos

https://youtu.be/Y8cukzcfElw I just know that somehow, VW will produce EVs that pollute, but in a way that the EPA can't measure. They found a way to do it with their diesels, right? ...And now, from the folks that brought you WWII, they'll apply the same know-how to come up with batteries that tur...

Re: Misc Thread VI: Return of the Threadi

Enterprise gave me a 2018 Nissan Sentra. Had a sport option. Doesn’t go fast. 🤷‍♀️ :confused: I do have a complaint re: headlights! I do the dial for headlights and the light on the dash comes on. I ASSUMED MY HEADLIGHTS WERE ON. I was wrong. The orange lights were. There was no visual difference o...

Re: So I got two new tires for the Mazda 5 today

Re: If One Clutch is Good,.....

that's what they get for not consulting with VW earlier. VW had worked out most of the kinks bye the thyme fored started using dual clutches. As I recall VW had pretty big issues with their moist DSG in the beginning. Seems like both of these trannies were shoved out before they were fully baked. A...

Re: Manuals you'll miss in 2019...

yeah, eye've noticed that with the newer models. they went from having 4-5 trims for most models (lx, sport, ex, ex-l and touring) to having in-between trim levels and separate trim levels for models just to offer navigation as an option on the ex-l vs. forcing pee pull to bye the touring model. the...

Re: Misc Thread VI: Return of the Threadi

On another note, I'm exceptionally intrigued with what I'm reading from the rumour mill. Mazda are developing a large RWD/AWD architecture with a Sky-X and a Sky-D I6 for their push to go upmarket. I wonder if Mazda would be able to use Toyota as a pass-thru to get their hands on BMW's I6 (or large...

I'd certainly prefer an a la cart menu. Just from my recent perusal of what's on the market a car was taken off my list because the sunroof only came with a package of options and "safety" kit that I didn't want, also a CVT would have been required. Ack sounds like a subaru to meeee. :| :shock: :x ...
