      All those pretty pictures don't help the fact we have a failing stressed grid that cannot support any more power. We need to fix fundamental problems before we can go after things that sound great on...

      Solar and wind power are still nothing but a pipe dream. No real easy way to store AC power on a large scale. Both methods are horribly intermittent. Bank of clouds roll in: no more power....

      Dealer is full of crap, VW is activly working on a fix for the 1st and 2nd CR cars right now, 3rd gen already got fix approved. Unless you live in California your registration will not be blocked. ...

      While MCM delivered a better car(no one is arguing with that) I think roadkill delivered a far more entertaining car. The subaru just had no entertainment value IMO.

      You have to admit, watching a...

      Now that I think about it, you are right. One of my engineering professors probably makes deep 100's and drove a mid 90's geo prism(rebranded toyota) for YEARS. :laugh: Guy probably had millions in...

      I drive $1000 cars and that means I am richer than 30% of drivers. That's awesome. :laugh:

      Need a set of stock coil springs for a Jetta 2.5. No pealing coatings or rust. Located in Hudson Valley of NY.

      Thanks!

      I agree, live on super tight budget and pay the car down as quickly as you can. Spending another $2-3 grand while being upside down on one car is a bad idea not to mention double maintenance and...

      Agree with almost everything except the MPG, a diesel will get far better MPG than a 460 while towing. If you don't plan on towing much, then its a moot point.

      A 460 ford towing 10K load will...

      This is dumb, drinking a cup of coffee is a heck of a lot different that having your face glued to your phone because you are playing Pokemon.

      I was referring to the Corolla. It downshifted to second gear at highway speeds while the cruise was set causing the engine to redline.

      Well there's your problem.


      So I guess the fact the trans will shift down to 2nd while the cruise in engaged and cause the engine to redline is normal? Or the fact that the throttle peddle is...

      I had to drive an 06 Corolla the other day and by the time the day was over I felt like strangling somebody from the driving "experience". I can't believe people actually like those cars. :facepalm:

      Not sure what you did to kill yours but I work on several MK4 with over 200K on them and they are still chugging away quite well. The 01M auto trans used in them was a s#!t pile, but the 5 speeds are...

      My 99.5 has only 357,000 miles, clearly a piece of crap.

      My point is MK4 cars were not the most reliable but were incredibly well made and last a very long time. Reliability and longevity are two...

      The main road by my house originally was a concrete road that was covered with asphalt 30+ years ago(NY state road). Of course the asphalt is coming apart and the expansion joints that are popping...

      I would get one that is SCR(2nd or 3rd generation common rail), they don't have HPFP failures, iced intercoolers, DPF failures, ect.

      Those first few year DPF cars are turning into real money pits...

      So I acquired a wrecked 09 5 cylinder really cheap. Base car, cloth seats. Plan on fixing the wrecked bits and getting it back on the road but I am really interested in doing an AWD swap. I have done...

      It still runs fine but the body is rusting apart. Subframe rotted out and failed a few years back and I put a junkyard sub frame on and keep driving, then the gas tank rotted and fell off:laugh:....
