      I've driven one -- a rusty 1985 740TD wagon with over 200,000 miles on it. The D24T is very smooth and torque -- except at idle, you can hardly tell it's a diesel. Just watch out for high oil...

      Hyundai dealers, too. They love to advertise that "we'll take 30% off of the dealer posted price on any new vehicle". Then if you go to the dealer you'll see that all the cars are marked up by $4000...

      A wheel consists of the hub, spokes, and rim. So yes, if you hit a pothole, you'll probably bend the rim, since it's the outer edge of the wheel. :)

      A dealer in my area runs loud screaming radio ads saying "We'll save you thousands... GUARANTEED!", complete with the obligatory cash register "ka-ching" sound effect. Notice they don't say thousands...

      To use Fox News' favorite phrase, "some people say" the 75-year-pension-prefunding plan is a scheme to force the USPS to privatize and break up its workers' union, outsourcing the profitable package...

      Most of rural America didn't even have electricity until FDR's Rural Electrification Act. Does this sound familiar?

      You can thank Congress for that. They get to call the shots about what the USPS can and can't do, even though the USPS does not get any taxpayer funding.

      It's also due to Congress that the USPS...

      That didn't work so well for New Stanton, PA (home to VW's Westmoreland plant), did it? Once the 10-year tax incentive expired, VW closed the plant and shipped the tooling to China.

      "Near miss" is brought to us by the same people who say "irregardless", "unloosen", and "inflammable".

      When I bought my Mazda2, I declined to pay for window etching, but it came with the windows etched anyway. It's probably put on all new cars as they come in (maybe even at the port).
