      When I leased my '02 MK IV 1.8T I did so in part because of the 4/48 btb warranty they had recently instated. That car had the usual issues - window regulator (they dropped literally 100 yards after...

      That's why I don't seriously modify a vehicle unless it's out of warranty. It's also why I go to the dealer for oil changes and everything else while in warranty, regardless of manufacturer. Had the...

      Precisely why I said it would be madness. It's a shame, though - I miss the days when DSMs, Preludes, Z-cars, and Celicas roamed the streets :(.

      Gotta say that's the way they need to go, especially if they are planning on making the "Genesis" nameplate different from the regular Hyundais. Also, as others have mentioned, there's simply no way...

      I'd try to replace that bar grille with a mesh grille to hide that silver disk (is that a horn?).

      Congrats on the new ride! The very first new car we owned was a '92 Dodge Colt (Mitsubishi Mirage) and I still have fond memories of that car to this day. As others have said, there is something...

      Hmm . . . I don't know about this. Traffic can be real ugly on both ends . . .

      QFT. I would figure of all the car companies able to take chances at this point in time it would be Kia/Hyundai.

      About time to end the free ride. That being said, I look forward to seeing what "innovations" the offenders come up with to keep doing what they're doing.

      Dropping back in to point out another advantage to the DGC (or any minivan, for that matter): towing capability. Or more specifically, the ability to put on a Class II or Class III hitch with very...

      I might be going out on a limb, but I'm guessing that while the prices in Canada aren't the same, the ratios of discounts likely are. That is, the DGC is more heavily discounted in the Great White...

      Because I'm bored, and MSRP is worthless, I present TrueCar local DFW prices (estimated/average paid). If you're a USAA member, last month they were giving an exclusive additional $1,000 rebate on...

      We looked at those before buying our Sedona: full minivan prices with barely better than full minivan gas mileage with worse power/weight and significantly less space (though easier to park and...

      I know you're in Canada, but in the US you can buy a Dodge Grand Caravan with what's called the American Value Package. When we were looking at new/used minivans this past month we could have...

      Rented a Versa for a week in Orlando a couple of years ago. No complaints whatsoever. Plenty of space for luggage for three, lots of interior room, comfortable ride, great visibility (love that),...

      I'm gonna go with:

      1) the general location you're parking at has lots of flies for some reason (look for thick, tangled, shade-giving vegetation, a big garbage bin, or something else that could be...

      Toyota has been coasting on their past reliability reputation for far too long and it has finally caught up with them. Especially in light of the recent recalls, unintended acceleration, fines, etc....

      As with anything used, you're playing the odds here. Of the three I've only looked at a Caliber, had a Versa rental, and also checked out a Matrix/Vibe, so take the following for what it's worth:
