      Hey. Dead revival.

      I had to replace both my fans after 10 years. It. Was. Expensive.

      I have seen it in the 90's with BIKES, BLADES, AND BOARDS- one of the Big 3's campaigns to appeal to the 20-25 year old demographic- replacing their rollerblades, skateboards, and BMX bikes with fun...

      Also sage advice: NEVER BUY A VEHICLE THAT IS PROMINENT IN THE RENTAL CAR MARKET. Kills resale.

      Somebody should sig this. Not me tho- my mom reads this MB. :laugh:

      I didn't love them the first time I drove a few AP1s way back in 2001 and 2002. They seemed gutless, and not worth the extra money $10,000 on top of a NICE Miata.

      So I bought a boxster, and...

      In all seriousness, how about a MK4 or MK5 with the turbo?

      Fun as he11, extremely vast aftermarket upgrades from mild to wild, and 5star ratings with 8 airbags. I own an 03 with just under 100K...

      Pictures look like truck tires to me?

      But seriously, the very limited market = real world answer.

      They used to call them City Golfs and Jettas. Nothing fancy, basic seats, cheapest interior trim and exterior trim, I think they didn't have dome lights or grab handles. Unusual in the USA, common...

      Wow- great job resurrecting that motor!

      If I may get all Financial Lounge-y here, may I ask what it cost so far? The original purchase and then the rebuilding?

      Ok. We have the same Ryobi from Home Depot for the same reason. Chops up everything that falls from the trees outside. I like it too. :laugh:

      I used to hate Corvettes- as with most American junk. Rattle crap interior and exterior, handled like a pickup truck, lousy build quality, bad sounds when you shut a door...

      I switched my stock 15's that had 195/65 to an aftermarket 17x7.5 with 225/45 after about 4 years of driving on the 03 Jetta.

      I barely noticed the ride and comfort difference, but I sure noticed...

      I have so little to add-

      For whatever reason, Indians (from India) drive them. It is a safe bet that an Indian has his wife and kids driving around an Odyssey in that light blue color. That is...

      You got it. Dropping the tailgate helped a lot, but it was STILL IMPOSSIBLE on this planet to achieve the MPG's listed on the window sticker. I sold thousands of Ford and Dodge trucks in the 90's...

      Yes. Trust me. I tried EVERYTHING to improve the mileage any way possible. The sticker on mine claimed 19 city 26 highway. NEVER HAPPENED.

      Commuting all highway with the tailgate dropped...

      Happens quite frequently - typically nobody notices anything.

      This just in- expensive shops can do good work.

      The Juke is a car that gets nothing right?

      Yeah- what above poster said.

      Shopping for a full size truck? It gets terrible mileage. 12-14 mpg if you drive like an old lady- which you won't because they are slow and heavy.

      I think so too. Watched a buddy's 72 Monte Carlo do the same thing right after he put a new motor in it.

      I haven't sold cars in NY since about 1995, but IIRC the title or Certificate of Origin has the miles listed, so I don't think we had another ODO disclosure form.
