Exactly. The fact that you're mad at a design that was accepted back in the day and passed current standards at the time is nuts. I don't feel like searching for Ralphs "You're full of shit" meme, but visualize it when you read this. » 7/16/14 9:48am 7/16/14 9:48am

I think you got this all wrong. Why are we mandating changes to a car that passed crash standards at the time? Might as well re-design the 1965 Mustang or the 1991 Volvo...they would kill a lot of people....and not require fire. The fix is BS because the conclusion from government is BS. » 7/03/14 9:40am 7/03/14 9:40am

This always gets brought up. The buyers aren't even close to being the same. Exclusivity is what makes a super car great. I'll drive down the highway and say "oh cool....its a Panamera....or hey....that new Corvette looks interesting".....but a Lambo, Ferrari, Viper, Cobra go down the road? "HOLY SH**....LOOK! ITS A… » 6/10/14 10:57am 6/10/14 10:57am

It does look a lot more like the Escape in the flesh than the concept car looked like. I saw one on the highway the other day. It's not bad looking, but I can see the similarity easy. I liked that the concept didn't really look like an Escape re-cover. » 6/03/14 9:49am 6/03/14 9:49am

Those systems are great, but leave too much room in between cars. Most of the time someone darts in and then your car goes into full panic mode and slams on the brakes to leave space and won't let you float past the specified distance for a bit until the car catches up to speed. Also, when you're talking on the… » 5/29/14 10:33am 5/29/14 10:33am

Really....how much cheaper can it get? If you get one for $16k....how much lower can it go? It's still a car that has a ton of features and it will likely age well. Heck a 2008 something will be 8-10k. It's not like buying a $50k Ford Flex and getting $20k back. » 5/28/14 1:26pm 5/28/14 1:26pm

The fact that the guy thought it would be better offroad means he's never been offroad and will probably never go offroad. Meaning....it doesn't matter and he's proud of it and busting his bubble only made you happier. It's like explaining to a Civic owner that the giant wing on the back doesn't actually help… » 5/23/14 2:25pm 5/23/14 2:25pm

The minivan market is certainly not dominated by Toyota and Honda. They have gained market share (esp Odyssey), but they aren't dominating. The Chrysler/Dodge twins make up 46% of the market. According to their business plan, the new minivan is coming and with a hybrid variant. That will be a big deal to moms that… » 5/23/14 8:47am 5/23/14 8:47am
