      The 10 year rule clearly has exceptions since I got a free recall repair on a 15 year old vehicle, but the difference is it is a new recall. That is probably a factor, but there are obviously...

      1. no? dead model, sure.
      2. that isn't relevant, but the time limit seems pretty relevant
      3. see 2. also, i certainly don't feel entitled to this repair. it's always good to see what you might...

      i wonder why they didn't make that clear to me when i made it pretty clear to them what I wanted done, i guess i will see when i take it in friday.

      this car has 35k miles and isn't worth anything,...

    6. Is a safety recall free if it was already performed but fails?

      1996 Chrysler Concorde, grandmother's car. 35k original miles. Just did valve cover gaskets and noticed fuel smell and small amount of fuel around a couple injectors and the fuel rail. This was a...

      yea that's a pretty good review. they did test the v6 though, which i know is worlds better. The entry level model is the one I am more critical of, and the weight still surprises me. There has...

      elitist? maybe read the thread.

      in the end you say it feels cheap anyway. i agree about the altima, or at least i have driven a truly brand new altima, and it certainly is floaty.

      also, your...

      the fusion, accord, optima and sonata all handle pretty well and have decent feel....especially the fusion. i still can't compare them to a brand new 200 since i've never driven one, but i have a...

      fun fact: i own a 1996 chrysler concorde with 39,000 original miles. has been in my family (grandma) since new. Leather seats, front bench, seats 6, 3.5 litre v6. Once I give it a detailing it...

      a few points about my incendiary thread:

      a) changing an opinion based on new or corrected information is not "backpedaling". i'm not a politician. i DO have an open mind and I was wrong about...

      true, and they are also not entirely in the same class, though they will be cross shopped. the passat is larger and lighter (by 200 pounds!), which is another impressive aspect.
    17. I agree with nearly everything. And since I...

      I agree with nearly everything. And since I haven't driven the new 200...I can't make this distinction myself, but based on what I've read, the Passat is still a much better vehicle than the 200,...

      these are all valid as well. turbo plumbing can be heavier than some think, and introduces the need for an intercooler which itself can be relatively heavy. all this and it is still 100 pounds...

      i agree it is a major improvement, and if that rate keeps up, it will be competitive for the next cycle. mid pack? maybe...but what's behind it? it is true that even the "worst" car in a segment...

      and it's always playing catch up and never makes it. it seems everyone else has been able to make it, even briefly, over the years. i've seen the accord, camry, sonata, passat, optima, fusion,...
