      I've driven a few Chevy Cruzes for rental cars, and I thought it rode great and the body roll trade-off was pretty minimal. The steering, however, was terrible. Like it wasn't attached to anything...

      Hell no. The GTI is a good car, but its not a WRX. It sounds like you've made your mind up though, so its not a whole lot of use commenting.

      It depends on what you call "garbage". Prius's are leasing way cheap right now due to the cheap gas prices but still a decent residual because it hasn't caught up with all of the incentives.

      Not a bad looking new car, but honestly, how much could a clutch/RMS cost on a Mazda3? Or were there other issues that were bugging you?

      People keep quoting the first part of my response and then cutting out the second part. Whether they use the capability or not, a properly designed coil spring setup performs better in every way...

      lol no. It'll have >300k and will be rusted out at that price.

      You're dead on about the speed hurting the MPGs. That 19.3 mpg tank had a large portion of it with my girlfriend driving. She's a little uncomfortable driving 85 in the Tacoma since it wanders a...

      well I just put almost 2600 miles on the Tacoma driving from Raleigh, NC to Homer, LA then to New Orleans, LA, then Baton Rouge, LA, then back to New Orleans, LA then back to Raleigh. Speeds are...

      It doesn't matter because the owners of these trucks will trade them in after <2 years anyways. Luxury buyers are the same people, whether they buy a 7-series or a truck, they just want a different...

      The only way to get the load carrying capacity of an air spring on a leaf spring suspension is to make them a higher spring rate, otherwise they'll sag just like coils. You can also get progressive...

      Its a $70,000 truck. Who the hell is going to actually use it like a truck.

      Besides, coils ride better (no friction so better small bump compliance), the links allow them to handle better...

      It still has leaf springs. The Ram is a better truck.

      I've got a tacoma 6mt. I like it, but if you're expecting handling like a forester, you'll be sorely disappointed. It handles well for a truck, but go ahead and insert whichever special Olympics joke...

      What the hell has everyone on here been smoking? That is seriously the ugliest vehicle I've seen. That thing is Aztek ugly.

      Unfortunately, that's so not true. What this guys says below is 100% right. Jared is screwed even if he's innocent.






      Ew. I can smell that through the computer screen.

      I think the north american sprinters have the option for the 4 cylinder engine, which the OP's vans probably have. That's probably why its way slower.

      I totally agree. I wouldn't have any problem with them making an announcement AFTER they found critical evidence.

      Has anyone noticed that they never actually say in the story that they found anything? If they don't find anything, I'd be getting my lawyers ready to do some suing if I was Jared. This could...
