      What does everyone think of the Santa Fe sport? We're liking the seats and size a little more than the escape now. I'm worried about buying a Hyundai. I know they've come a long way but it's still a...

      A 17" laptop is a laptop in name only. It's really a desktop replacement. I'd rather have a true laptop - under 15" - and a desktop tho really all the desktop is for is games. :D

      We just did the head gasket on our Torrent outside of warranty. Not exactly a cheap fix or apparently something that can be avoided. The Nox/Terrain are nice but seem dated. I have more faith in the...

      Anything? Anything to avoid/be aware of with an Escape? It seems solid. I searched but there doesn't seem to be much of anything around here about them.

      Thanks!
