      I think there will be a full EV in our garage in the next 5 years.

      I'm very, very interested in the smaller Tesla as a potential replacement to our TDI.

      Maybe not, but oil burning off the exhaust manifolds is often sufficient to convince an owner to replace them.

      The conditioner doesn't work. At least it hasn't in the '01-'06 EJ25 equipped cars I...

      Yeah, no. I need no more cars, especially crap ones. Fortunately I live in a neighborhood where my crappy Miata doesn't stand out too much, but a Neon? :D

      Blown HG's, maybe not; but most EJ25's will suffer leaking HG's by 100-140k miles, even through the 05-09 models.

      However, the 2.5 used in current models is NOT the same motor as the old EJ25:

      I've owned both, currently have a nicely modded '94 R Package. I wouldn't give it up for another E30 unless it was a mint '89 325is or a really nice Touring.

      The semi-trailing arm IRS doesn't suffer mid-corner lifting anyway; it's FAR worse when the rear bushings are all shot.

      My E30 got stuffed into a ditch when a friend (driving) lifted around a...

      Good luck with that ownership experience, sweetheart.

      Woohoo. Looks like it has some kind of custom dual exhaust and...what did they call those quasi-electroluminescent gauges? All could be yours for a mere $1699! Probably close to rust free, too, if it...

      Ugh. No thanks. Talk to the people that maintain them. Not even as a toy.

      The 2015 Outback addresses many of the issues I have with the pre-refresh car (I can't quite believe Subaru's assertion that it is 'all new' given the near-identical dimensions and powertrains, apart...

      That 4 wheeled instrument of Satan already goes to 11. Does it really need to go to 13?

      (I know Shannon, hence I know the answer already...)

      OP, best of luck. At least you'll have a car worth...

      Wow. It seems like I haven't seen a 1st Gen Neon runner in years. I was thinking they had gone extinct (much like their larger LH sedan brethren), but a quick CL search proved me wrong:

      That's about it. I usually take it out and drive the **** out of it a few times a winter on dry days. It doesn't get...

      Slowest? Probably my 1986 Quantum Syncro Wagon, especially when it had the Kumho gravel rally tires installed. Howled like a banshee and wouldn't top 65mph in 5th with my foot to the floor. (It also...

      Wow.

      My only questions are...how would you make that stop and turn well? Not exactly Toyota-level of aftermarket support, I'd think.

      But it'd sure be fun in a straight line.

      Mirage, followed by the Spark for me.

      But the Mirage truly is in a crap car class of its own, at least in the US market.

      Here's an interesting question:

      How were the cars tested at Road Atlanta tuned?

      Nothing was written about this in the car mags. Unless they were only running 2-3 laps with a cooldown period in...
