      I find they still turn heads... though that's often when you hear them coming, not parked in a parking spot.

      Manual was great on the old one because E-Gear/R-tronic left something to be desired. Now that they have a capable dual-clutch (since the '13 refresh) it's probably the better transmission for the...

      Play on the 'needing an SUV for 1 baby!' TCL-gripe. That and the over-the-top lack of maturity, including bringing up wanting the fictional...

      Since he's still fine-tuning some option choices, I think he's firmly on the 'list' but it's not an order in the system yet.

      That does sound like it would have been pretty aggressive. Did you even know if they had kids or not?

      Looks like they tried to fit their small car into the snow-shrunk spot, and came pretty...

      Porsche has a Tequipment accessory catalog on their website. I think any of the seats/boosters they sell disable the airbag when installed, but there should be a way to do it with other seats...

      I look forward to the next year or more of this thread :thumbup:

      I'm not sure anyone is advocating anything that draconian. That sounds like a byproduct of shady money-hungry shops trying to squeeze people in order to pass.

      I'd say any good law / policy would...

      That would make sense. The CX-3 can pick up where the 2.0l CX-5 left off. 2.5 is a good fit even for FWD CX-5s.

      For the layman car nerd on the internet (vs. you guys in the industry) that was a lot of interesting info!

      I'm on board with this.

      Too many people don't bother repairing their clunkers, and keep them on the road far longer than they should.

      The Countryman is more fun (in S All4 form) and smaller. The Subaru is slow, but roomier and practical.

      Depends on what you want/need.

      I know, soft top vs. hard top, but the A3 cabriolet has killed the need for the Eos in our market. There's still a Beetle Cabriolet, right?

      The change was actually in the transmissions. There used to be a mechanical engagement of the parking prawl, and now it's changed to electric actuation. Cars used to be offered in manual or auto,...

      That's up there with the Camaro key recall.

      IMO, not having used any of these newfangled electronic shifters (other than Prius)

      That is one desolate route.



      Stay close to civilization and cell reception!

      I've driven a few cars where you push farther left than the 1-2 gate to get to R, so if you thought you pushed hard enough and didn't, you'd get 1. Or, if you're used to just pushing hard left, and...

      Manuels are even less standardized than autos. Is reverse up and to the far left? Is there a lockout? Is it up or down? Is it to the far right? Is it a dog-leg five speed?

      It's pretty easy to...
