      The enormous (not) sales expectations of two-door two-seat sports cars likely has something to do with the lack of this happening.

      Main problem is that once you cut up the floor and make the rear seat go away and reconfigure the chassis back there, you basically have nothing left of the original vehicle's structure - just the...

      But the actual load capacities don't correspond with those nominal ratings any more.

      I don't think it's that easy. The Ram's coil spring rear suspension makes for a notably better ride ... better for being a "family truck / around town". The 8 speed automatic should make for better...

      This is one of those times when I wish I could comment on something, but I can't.

      My job involves tooling/automation for the auto industry, which means I've seen some of the parts involved here,...

      I spy a temp gauge and fuel gauge in the instrument cluster, which - if it's included on all models! - is an improvement over the old base instrument cluster.

      But in general ... Meh. I actually...

      At this point, I would consider the blackness of the spark plugs to be a GOOD thing ... it means all four cylinders are at least doing something! It's likely that they are all on the verge of being...

      Historically, I would take a manual over a traditional automatic when towing. The manual won't overheat going up long grades, the manual won't unnecessarily unlock the torque converter and downshift...

      Canyon/Colorado look promising.

      In full-size ... I'd take the Ram, and it would be a toss-up between the Ecodiesel and the regular Pentastar V6, either one with 8-speed auto and the coil spring...

      Article is bunk. The XL1 isn't allowed in North America because it was built to UN-ECE standards and was never designed to meet US EPA/NHTSA standards. For such a limited production vehicle, it...

      That's because the wording of CMVSS 108 requires the DRL to turn off when the turn signal is on, only if the DRL light source is closer than a certain distance to the turn signal light source.

      On the front, it will affect the scrub radius, too. Most modern cars, and front-drive cars in particular, have the scrub radius near zero or slightly negative to avoid some potentially bad steering...

      Friend of mine just bought one but hasn't taken delivery yet (I helped talk him into it).

      Fiat Ducato - the basis for Ram ProMaster - has been front drive for several model generations, and is sold in mountainous areas like Switzerland, Norway, etc. I don't think front wheel drive is a...

      Watch out in that application. It was touched on a couple posts up, but a boat duty cycle is very different from a car duty cycle.

      A car engine tuned to 200+ hp and used on the street will likely...

      "It depends"

      Motorcycle ... Honda, simply because Ford doesn't build any.

      Truck ... Ford, simply because Honda doesn't build any real trucks (the Ridgeline is a lame excuse, a pretender).
