      That's why I like AWD. The car figures it out for you and doesn't make a big deal of it either way.

      When I rented a Wrangler a couple of months ago, I put it in 4Lo in a parking lot to see...
    2. Poll: I think I'd have to drive one. Last year I...

      I think I'd have to drive one. Last year I rented a V8 Silverado and this year I rented a V8 '19 F150. None of them really blew me away with a feeling of acceleration. I felt nothing when flooring...

      It's not really their introduction, they've been doing 2.0t engines in sonatas almost as long as everyone else. But it's how they're labeling it---taking a page from BMW and Mercedes with their...

      Thanks for the link. I didn't read the article, but I looked at the summaries and the data. You know, in the trim level that most of these cars were tested in, I don't think I'd personally be able...

      I would agree with your comment on the Veloster R. :beer:

      The Sonata N? No dice. First off, the sonata competes with the Camry, Passat, Accord, not the cars you mentioned. Secondly, it would...

      Wow, that's pretty thick. What is the stock viscosity? 0w40? 220s is really good for the track. Before I swapped out the stock oil cooler for a mocal unit, I was seeing temps as high as 290F. ...

      This doesn't seem to be nearly as egregious as the other SUVs of this style. For me, the current q7 is both too big and a step backwards in styling versus the previous gen. If they gave it a bit...

      That's a pretty good coolant temp, how about oil? I'm probably at 225 coolant temp in the vr6. What oil temps are you getting. I tend to spend much more time obsessing over this vs coolant. Sounds...

      It all depends on the system. I drove a 2018 silverado v6 that had cylinder deactivation. I would not have known the vehicle had this feature if it wasn't for the notification on the dashboard. A...

      They're designed to publicly identify people with more money than brains?

      What's a good onroad driver? I rented a 2019 wrangler with the v6. It perfectly fine in most situations. It's far from a performance car, but not much different than a pickup. It's not my...

      Nice story---and I can relate to a lot of it in my poor man's tt (though I paid more for mine than you did for yours, lol). These are great examples of the fun people can have with cars as they are...

      For me, it's a porsche flat 6 and pretty much any other performance car with a v8 or greater cylinder count.

      Ideally, the type of screen and design would fit the intended purpose of the car. I don't have iDrive in my BMW and I find it all the better for it. So I think it would be beneficial for...

      Definitely the corrado. Bought in the spring of 2000 and still running strong. So I'm at about 19.5 yrs on that vehicle. A distant second would be the tucson which is going on 9 yrs. ...

      If GM was smart, they would just give the nicer touches to similar Chevy versions of the vehicles sold under the Buick badge and close Buick down. Or make Buick the EV/hybrid lineup for GM.

      I really dig the update. A manual on the V8 would be a nice addition, but my wallet is certainly happy it's auto-only.

      I was also one of those people who was pretty critical of the 982. To some degree I still am because I haven't driven one. I will say though, I have heard a few at cars and coffee and was impressed....

      For the first time, I wouldn't really put Hyundai and Toyota in the same category-----Hyundai seems to have a much greater desire to build in-house performance cars. Toyota? Yeah, not to much. ...
