      I went in March, the weather was absolutely gnarly so I went with an SUV with studded tires, and ended up with a SsangYong Rexton. It was a pretty decent truck:thumbup:

      St. Pierre and Miquelon has a quirky car mix.

      The automotive landscape is similar to what you'll find in most of North America, but being a French territory, there are also Dacias, Renaults,...

      We have a new Toyota product, a RAV4 hybrid, and the start-stop button can be finnicky at times. 99% of the time, the button requires a soft touch to turn the car off, but occasionally, it needs to...

      If you rewind a bit, before you took my point out of context, you'll realize I was talking about *fun*, not mom and pop driving to Wal-Mart.

      Also, after owning many diesels of various makes/models...

      No he's right. Diesels, in general, are no fun. Source = I've had plenty of diesels.:laugh:

      Low redline + very narrow powerband + muffled sound = no thanks, driving a bus is more fun.

      Even a...

      Aftermarket intake manifold + tune. It's good for around 220hp, 7000+rpm redline, they are an absolute hoot to drive, and it only costs 1600$ + install.

      Yeah this is also to be noted. I've had my 2008 2.5L 6AT for 7 years now, and I only get over 20mpg when I do exclusively highway, mixed city/highway I'll usually get 18mpg per tank. I do drive...

      My employee has a Jetta 1.4T 5MT with a Unitronic stage 1 tune, and I was suprised, that thing hustled. I could live with that kind of power for a daily driver. Burger tuning also released a JB4...

      I'm particularly fond of the MK3. My 1994 steel blue Golf GL was the first car I really started to work on. In 2000, I picked up a totalled 98 GLX VR6, and swapped over everything, motor,...

      That's crazy:eek:

      Those tires must really be horrible. I'm fairly certain my Michelin X-ice tires have more reserve grip on ice in the same scenario/speed than those Goodyears have in the...

      EV scooters are terrible. Here in Montreal there is no EV scooter ride-sharing service, and the type of people that buy and use them seem here seem to be on welfare. They generally have poor...

      I realize my post wasn't very clear. I wasn't comparing the alltrack to the outback.

      What I meant was, VW should introduce a Crosstrek competitor. A 5 door hatch Alltrack (not a wagon). Add...

      This is what will happen when/if EV's go mainstream:

      Dealers will put pressure on manufacturers when their service departments start running deficits.

      Manufacturers will lobby for mandatory EV...

      I can't really say I prefer one over another. It really depends on the make/model.

      VW for example, I'd typically choose the auto over manual every time. VW's 5 speed manual is far from...

      Interesting post, although I do think automatics were comparably much worse than manuals from the malaise era up to early 2000's, because of smaller/underpowered motors. Manuals gearboxes got so...

      It's the same here in Montreal. It's almost systematic now, bad driver = Uber sticker.

      Cabbies drive like jerks, but most of them seem aware of their surroundings.

      Most Uber drivers around...

      I'm fairly sure if Nissan had a similar formula for the Altima as it did in the 90's, they'd be a more popular choice.


      1996 examples for mid specs models:

      My father bought a new Altima in 96'. He checked out the Accord/Camry, and other competitors. He settled on the Altima because he really like the torquey KA24DE motor and they were very cheap; he...

      I ran a stage 2 Passat 1.8T for four years without issue.

      My dad is still driving his 2003 Jetta 1.8T Wolfsburg. The car is in great shape. He's been running a stage 2 Eurodyne tune since 2009,...
