      Sounds like it wasn't any more reliable than our older one, but at least those had a relatively modern SOHC/DOHC V6 with ~100 more horsepower and could get out of their own way.

      I'm getting one. I just got the runaround from Allstate after someone changed lanes into the side of my car. It would have been an open-shut case with a dashcam but it turned into a...

      My mom has had all kinds of "slow" cars like an automatic '95 Escort wagon, base '91 Galant with 102 horsepower, etc etc. The only car she ever complained about being slow was the Trooper. We lived...

      In the grand scheme of things it is not that much money - cars are our hobbies and it is worth it to stay interested/have fun; over a lifetime it isn't that much compared to what people spend on...

      My car will pull timing on really hot days (like 105F+) if I give it a lot of gas at low revs (like flooring it in 2nd at 15 MPH if I'm coasting up to a light that turns green). It feels like...

      Kind of...? What I mean is that a lot of people are reluctant to rev a car over 3500 or 4000 RPM and will say it is slow if there's not a lot of low-end torque.

      I guess I am trying to contrast...

      We own one of those and, no joke, it will smoke many of the cars in this thread. 0-60 is about 11 seconds with the CVT, maybe a second quicker with the stick. You do have to rev it and use the...

      It's not really that -- I was just hoping I could buy two matching wheels for a reasonable price and two new tires (car has <5000 mile Pilot Sports on it) rather than getting four different wheels...

      Any places to find cheap steel wheels?

      I am having a hell of a time finding 4x100, 15x5.5, 39 offset, 54.1 center bore steel wheels (need two due to jumping a curb avoiding an accident). I guess they are uncommon because the only 4-lug...

      Love the design on that Opel wagon but, man does it look like a minor rear-ender would be $$$$ to repair.

      My dad has a 2010 with the 4.0 SOHC V6. It's not anemic like my Trooper and sounds kind of cool (raspy) but it has just enough power to not be annoying. Basically it feels kind of ponderous. It is...

      Looks like a W123 hatch with extra bits grafted on to the bottom to match the little flares on the fenders above the tailights. Makes sense to me since it is using the 123 roof rail...

      If they made something on the same chassis, similar to how the big SUVs used to share bones with their pickup truck brethren (like K2500 and Suburban 2500) there's no reason they couldn't. Dodge...

      I have always liked these even though I have absolutely no use for one.

      Also, not sure if this one does, but the current version has a graphics delete package. You can also get a Power Wagon...

      That stuff still exists, you just have to hunt for it and most don't want to pay for it. I wear $130 New Balance shoes that are made in the US because they are comfortable and last twice as long. ...

      If you drive one again, realize that they hide a lot of oomph in the last 9/10ths of the long-travel accelerator's movement, I guess to encourage economical driving. If you just smash it to the...
