Lexus HS250h 10-12 (market failure)
and a car I'm very familiar with:
Merkur Scorpio 88-89 (name/brand failure)
although both of these cars continued in their home markets.
Seems to be a problem with Chrome, I tried it in IE and the spacebar is fine - not so with Chrome v54.0
I like manuals as much as the next CL'er, but they just don't sell. Can't fault Alfa for that.
Wow, this law really hits leasing hard. It looks like you will be paying tax on the FMV of the car (actually, the dealer is responsible - ie: you'll pay).
Some other fun facts:
Yep, AWD w/ snows should be fine unless you plan on driving up ski slopes, and even then, chains suck.
1G Lexus IS, if you can find a manual in decent shape. Stupid reliable, fun to drive (IMHO), gas mpg is so-so. My 03 usually gets around 20 no matter where/how I drive it. GL.
A 2003 Catera would truly be an uncommon car since the last model year was 2001 :)
I'll go with first model year CTS?
Love the Black with Red interior.. hopefully, the new touchpad controller works out better than the joystick in the IS/GS. Enjoy :thumbup:
Weird, must be a regional thing as I see these almost daily.
My sister had one of these, transmission went 3 times in the space of about 2 years - dodge could not fix it correctly. I would say, avoid.
IS300, Camry reliability without having to drive a Camry - RWD, mostly easy reg maintenance, fun car. Only minuses would be timing belt/water pump every 90k is a PITA (ask me how I know), CD-Changer...
2.39? Are you sure you were buying gas?
Anyway, I saw 2.71 here in NJ yesterday. We actually have one of the lowest gas taxes in the country, which is one of the VERY few things our state is low...
No doubt, the Q50 is a great looking car, they seem to be selling a lot of them around here. Styling is very subjective though, but yeah, the Q's "upgraded" steering needs fixing.
Right, pictures do not do this car justice - It must be seen to appreciate it's presence.
Not the best, but it was in autumn.
I forgot about the Accord Hybrid, VERY nice car. 2 things, they cant seem to keep up with demand and Honda's previous Hybrids (Civic) were not known for their reliability.
Agreed, the new Genesis is a very nice overall package, Kudos to Hyundai. As for the Avalon, the 13+ isn't the Nippon Buick of old.
I'm a Lexus fan, so, let get that out of the way.
That being said, I think the CT (we own one) is fun to drive - especially since you can push it to the limits.
As for the GS450h, the 07-11...
