      My wife had a sister model, the 97 Grand Spam, same motor, etc. Pretty solid, but unremarkable car, was competent enough, I guess. Had an appetite for alternators, as they put it behind the rear...

      I agree that there's more to the story than what we're seeing. That thing does sound a bit beat on. OTOH, some dealers can be real pricks to work with or completely incompetent morons. I would...

      Personally, I'd like to see the Polo brought over to compete in the B segment, but apparently VW doesn't feel it's worth their time or investment in that segment in the NA market. It's a shame,...

      So, what about the Form 2194 for deductions after disasters, such as the heavy flooding here in the Detroit area last August?

      Sorry to hear of your loss. I know it's hard losing a pet after years of companionship. :(

      Ours looked similar to Tiggs. We lost him several years ago at, I'm not kidding, 21. He'd had...

      I guess I'm not getting which years, specifically, were supposed to have bad head gaskets. All 2.5s from the beginning of time? Certain ones in certain models?

      We've (my wife, actually) had a 2003 Outback and now have a 2008 Impreza Outback Sport. Both 2.5 autos. Traded the Outback with around 90K on it. The Impreza has about 90K on it now. Both cars...

      I don't buy it. More like, "Hmm, they keep finding our speed traps, and our revenues are down. I know, let's say it's about officer safety!"

      Damn good question. I don't think shipping costs are involved, are they? It all seems to come down to Lowe's distribution.

      Our internet traffic sometimes routes through Kansas, Texas, or New...

      Wifey and I were on a date with my Fiesta SES with a 5-speed manual (Remember this part.). What the heck, it's a night out, so we valet parked. Oops, forgot to leave the key/fob. One of the valets...

      Thank God. Its seems like it's been a long off-season. Now if only the US would find some reliable, timely coverage. Not a rally from April, cut down to a half hour, shown in September or October....

      That's what I thought at first.

      Sure, she's bat-shizzle crazy, but still pretty good looking. :D

      My wife's had a few calls about her Sube IOS, too, but since we don't have a payment on it, she keeps telling them to leave her alone. "But it's a great offer!" Her last reply was, "it's a great...

      So they replaced the hex bolts with socket cap screws. Hmmm, it does look cleaner, IMO.

      It's not just nuclear, but general industry and military waste as well. Hell, the Wiki page on Vladivostok, where my daughter was born, has a separate section on their pollution. :screwy:

      Good topic.

      Always check the seat manufacturer's manual, the car's owner's manual, and check your current state law. For example, Florida and Michigan both have revised car seat rules that went...
