It used to be offered with the 1.6 turbo.  I read something in a JD Power article I think that they dropped it because of complaints about the DSG transmission that the 1.6 is usually connected to but I didn’t bother to research it any further.

Wow!  Thats crazy to me.  But I live in one of the snowiest cities in America, Buffalo, NY and its incredibly rare to find fwd models of anything if there is an awd option available.  I looked at a large dealer chains inventory and there are only 730 fwd suv’s versus over 2500 awd suv’s. 67 awd Tuscons and 0 fwd. 190 Read more

According to trucar, I got a little better than average deal.  The car stickered for 34500 and between 1k first responder rebate and what the dealer took off ended up being a little over 3k off.  (31200 I think?).  Not a super-cheap deal but not terrible either.

IMO, I like the wheels, but I’m hoping to get a set of wheels from the sport or older limited trim for winter tires as I’d like to keep it OEM looking.

I did a quick look and the mileage is on the lower end. It’s not too surprising because the engine architecture is aged and it only has a 6spd auto (Which I greatly preferred over various CVT options). I will be interested to track what real-life mileage turns out to be. Read more

All in all, as one of the resident RX-8 experts, he did a pretty fair job with this video. He did a good job pointing out a good number of quirks although he missed the ‘rotors’ that are at the bottom of the front and rear bumpers. Read more

My son would get occaisional motion-sickness. My wife, who is an experienced RN, recommended these motion sickness bracelets. I’m simply amazed at how well they work. My kids have had zero issues since buying these. If they start not feeling good, they just put them on and it puts them right back to normal.

It seems like a Honda Element might be something that would meet most of these requirements. I did a quick check of fb marketplace and there are a bunch under 5k.

Ill be signing the papers on a brown Hyundai Tuscon-Ultimate next week for my wife. They bumped the first responder cash up to 1k and I took advantage of the 0%/84 month financing. Total knocked off sticker was a little over 3k (Trucar says avg is 2810 off). Might have got a better deal fighting for more but in the Read more

The QuickJack is one of the best purchases I’ve ever made (Read my Awesome Review on it).  I get plenty of regular use with it in my garage and driveway and when I have a bigger job, I can just load it up and take it to my Father’s house where he has 30+ years of diesel mechanic tools.  It has such great versatility.

I haven’t seen a pic of the Spice Fieros in awhile!  I love it!

I miss this era of IMSA racing. There were so many sweet looking race cars and they actually still looked close to the production versions!

This is true. So many people never got past ‘emotional thinking’ and it shows. So many people only believe what makes them feel good and right. Read more
