      Yes, I agree. I think the performance may fall a bit short on the acceleration; maybe about 6 seconds on the 0-60 time. But the GLI has a very large and practical trunk (for hauling large...

      Large trunk? How about a Jetta GLI? It is available with 6-speed manual, and it is a comfortable cruiser. It is quiet, and seats 4 people somewhat comfortably. The 0-60 time should be close to...

      Prices are continuing to increase, so you may not want to wait too long.

      Any of those cars at $5000 are probably going to have high miles and/or deferred maintenance. I would tread very carefully. :eek:

      Please be aware the factory torque specification on the 46 mm axle nut is 360 ft.-lbs. I have removed axle nuts that I am sure were even tighter than the specification. This is heavy duty removal,...

      Nissan X-Trail is sold in México. But cars in México normally don’t have rust problems, unless maybe right on the coast.

      I looked through the photos, and could not find a Porsche badge anywhere. I am at a loss for why this is so valuable. Is somebody really planning to go off-roading in an $80,000+ truck? :eek:
