      Seem like a slow news day story to me. All I read was that the Ridgeline offers best in class fuel economy and excellent packaging... Of course it's only about 5% better... because RWD trucks are...

      I asked about this when I had my 335i. The dealer told me they don't recommend patching tires. I wasn't sure if it was a BMW corporate or their own policy. They told me it had something to do with...

      From what I can gather from guys at work:

      Best
      - RAM V6 8AT (low 20 mpg range)
      - GM 5.3L (4.7L is no better apparently) - likely your best choice overall... especially for wanting to tow. I also...

      Basically... and slow line speed too. Most car plants you see way more vehicles in queue behind. Something like the Rav4 line would probably more interesting to watch, as they need to make them at...

      Love the 300. Ive rented several, and the wife and I owned one for a while... original one, 2009 model. They ride fantastically, handle well for their size and all have had great seats. No, they...

      I find this too... Toyota trucks are the very worst.

      We tested a brand new Tundra (co-worker that everyone complained about his glare) when I worked at a lighting OEM. We set up our aiming board,...

      Definitely a test rig for something.

      That is fairly standard aluminum extrusion, to which many brackets can easily be bolted on to. Back when I work for a company doing automotive lighting, we had...

      We love the transmission and handling as well! We came from a 2008 335i (which my wife didn't drive all that much but loved when she did). My wife had a Chrysler 300 before this vehicle, so she was...

      Everyone wants to be 'different' in the world where everyone is the same. Because everyone has direct fuel injection turbo systems... because only a few manufacturers sell them. Car makers just have...

      Ask to test drive both for 45-60 mins each, let them know you're torn and you're buying one of these vehicles... They will let you, almost certainly.

      The 2.0L will likely be more trouble free......

      I would have to say General Motors builds the best 1/2 ton trucks out there... for people who keep them for 10-15 years.

      -I see them the most on the road after they get this age
      -You don't ever...

      I find it funny OP that you mention for non-projector, they are good.

      Saw these things quite a bit in Europe this past fall... XC version looked appealing for North America. I think it would sell, if they price it right.

      This is very true... don't get a 4cyl Journey. Mine is a 2012 V6. It has been excellent. The transmission is a bit hesitant, but not bad (I think they re-flashed it... it seems faster responding now...
