      RWD cars are sold all over the U.S. With the standard ATS, AWD adds about 170 lbs., I hope AWD never becomes the only way to buy this car.

      Guessing you also want All Season tires and the reduced...

      Agreed, but anytime you buy a 10 year old car with a $20k engine there is a chance you will end up needing a really expensive repair or replacement engine, as said above, no guarantee's that come for...

      X2, as owner of two RWD cars, with one my daily that I travel from Ontario to TN as part of work with (Winter tires), I understand that if racing in the rain/snow/ice that I will probably lose to AWD...

      If a 10 year old car has 40k mile on it hardly seems like a garage queen, (averaged more than 75 miles a week). Not saying you are wrong but what exactly will fail with 40k miles on the car that...

      My guess is they figured out how many new Jeep owners keep their vehicles past 100k miles and it was very small, then figured out the number of failures of engine, transmission, and drivetrain (don't...

      When it comes to state laws I don't see the big manufactures having much to say to the average state representative that he will care to hear. The manufacturer owns virtually nothing in almost all...

      X2. Not seeing point. Exterior kit, not installed or painted is $8230. I wonder what the upgrade kit to have the car pictured would cost (installed and ready to go). Interior, exhaust, wheels,...

      I never understood the people that live one of the most expensive areas of the country complaining about what it costs to live there.

      I lived in Southern California for a couple of years in a...

      No this won't cause another bubble like the housing bubble a couple of years ago. That bubble quickly drove up prices to an unreasonable level, people bought houses, were underwater (owed far more...

      X2. Guessing the number of people taking out 6 year loans because they want to invest the rest of it wisely is extremely small.

      Also, always surprised at the number of people that blame car...

      A long time ago my father rented a car near Daytona Beach and we drove it to Seattle. FL to Pittsburgh, to Louisiana, to MN, to Seattle and back in a month. Put over 10k miles on the car. It was a...

      It gets from 0-60 in less than 4 seconds so it must be able to put the power down pretty well for a sedan.

      I believe they all have an "Ice" mode that starts the car in 2nd gear and makes the...

      This looks to me like at the least they are putting some money towards looking into actually producing it. Far more than I have seen in the past.

      If true I can't see the logic in this. As someone that will never lease I should just skip the BMW dealership because they only want my money if they can "rake it in"?

      Or to say it another way...

      Maybe it changed recently (guessing not) but wasn't every police car and taxi in the Chicago area (and virtually everywhere else in the country) a rear wheel drive car since the beginning of the...

      They are putting the MSRP closer to what the actually sell for which makes a lot of sense. I don't see this necessarily changing the transaction prices they are getting. Having a $9k discount from...
