      I've been doing a similar commute for about 4 years. Down to 140km each way in last year.
      I started with an '00 Impala. It was what I had. 9.1l/100km and spending about $700/month on gas. When it...

      For a reason: they're terrible. I do get 40mpg. I'm also getting ready to buy its 3rd hybrid battery.

      My Pirelli tires were made in China. Like the article says, lots are. But seriously, Triangle brand? I saw one the other day that said: "killy tire" Yes, I am sure it wasn't "Kelly".

      I find that...

      I was doing 30km/h in a 50 because it was drizzling. He told me I should slow down when it's wet. I said "I was doing 30?" He replied "I can't give you a perfect score." ymmv.

      Exactly! Plus, you have to be doing at least 70mph (115 in a 100) on that road to get pulled over. With how steep the hills are, I'm surprised they could go that fast.

      The only car I've seen pulled over in the last month was a grey Nissan Micra. Twice. Same one. :facepalm::banghead::laugh:

      All of the maritime provinces do this too. Sounds like a pretty dangerous inconsistency between provinces. Most have been replaced with green arrows, but lots of rural places still use the advance...

      Come on. You and I both know the worst effort in recent memory is still the Hybrid.

      I'm not sure if it was a real camera photo or a camera phone photo, but my camera frequently has the wrong date. If I leave the battery out too long it'll go to a default, and I either don't change...

      Ok. Then I'd just shop around, then undercut it buy 10-20% (assuming you aren't buying supplies). I used to detail, but one year was for a dealer (ie. no customer pay, so no idea of rate. I got...

      The guys doing it get minimum. It really depends on your area. Check the sites of local detailers, call them for quotes, or check your local craigslist and get the going rate. If you're willing to...

      Yeah, I think you're right about this. I'm 280 (and dropping) and the bolsters on my seat bottoms are pretty much flat after just under 3 years. There is also a dent on the window frame where my...

      My first battery died at just under 80k miles. The 2nd one is now noticeably worse than when it was installed, and I am at about 137k miles.

      I know you said below that that you aren't interested in the Hondas anymore, but I found a brochure that says 12 ft^3 for the regular sedan and 10ft^3 for the hybrid. That's 340L vs 285L.

      See bold. I am more than happy to answer any questions about Civic Hybrids.
      Also, whichever you get, make sure you have LRR tires. The difference in gas mileage meant if I had scrapped the...

      Make sure you like the seats. I didn't take a long enough test drive, and now both my fiancée and I hate the sport seats. Most uncomfortable car seats I've ever been in (for me anyway). I'm...

      I always figured VW did well up here because of the rust warranty. I know very few people who end of life a vehicle for mechanical failure. It is always rust. VW has a very long rust warranty (12...

      Go test drive a USED CRZ. Get the battery low (shouldn't be hard). Turn on the AC. Now try to accelerate and merge going up hill. If you can handle that, go ahead and buy one. Also, do a quick...
