      I shift into it by accident once in a while. It totally changes the shift points so the engine is usually about 1000 RPM higher than usual. I use it intentionally when I'm trying to work my way...

      All you can hope for in life is that you can impact other people's lives in a positive way. When you're gone, those positive memories live on.

      Explain why a candy bar at the gas station at the interstate highway interchange is $1.50 when it's 50 cents at the grocery store a couple of miles down the road.

      The problem is that the insurance company shouldn't have had those uninsurable people jammed down their throats. The proper action should have been to adopt a law where if you could produce a...

      Meh. I think Obama and his administration are merely incompetent, not corrupt.

      "altitude" tops out at 2500 feet in Vermont. I sleep at 2000 feet. The hill climb I'm concerned about is the 1000' to 2000' climb I do most days in the winter. It would be pretty unusual to...

      I checked it out on Thursday. I need to drive the 2.5i in my normal Vermont hills to see if I can live with 175 hp/175 ft-lbs. The H6 with Xenons has my interest but it would be nice to get 30+...

      I'm only interested in the VW wagon if it comes in AWD. They're totally missing the boat if they don't make an Outback competitor for the snow belt.
