Damn. I knew this but you made it really sink in. Imagine this exact body but underneath, a RWD based q50/60 platform and an optional ttv6. The fx was one of the only cool crossovers like...ever.
Man, a loaded 6 wagon with a stick is just a perfect daily driver. Mazda should just bring the next gen wagon here with one trim level, touring loaded with v6. Even skeptical americans who arent into wagons would drive one back to back against a compact SUV and couldnt help but love it.
I feel like this would fit on an alpha platform, which would make this thing pretty interesting. Maybe the all new platform is even better though, we’ll see.
Well, itll just braaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaap.
Jalopnik has articles about countless million dollar supercars that you could never afford either. Whats your point?
Thank the lord
Go birds. Been waiting for this moment since 2005.
Cool thing is the 2.5 gen Montero is like $45k cheaper and just as capable. Better looking in my opinion too
Love those wheels
So..no bass boat? At least buy an old skiff hull and a decent used outboard! Maybe compromise at bro rims but no lift and a cheap ass fishing skiffs
These cars are nothing like a 2001 Kia. You really don’t value how good a car is as much as the badge? At least you’re able to admit it? Weird take as an auto enthusiast.
Usually there’s not enough time to search the whole question. Sometimes there’s long enough to do a quick search on one answer choice to confirm or deny.
Cp because a clean titled one with slightly more miles will run the same cost and will still run forever. These cars are fucking unbreakable
Luckily on the 1st and 2nd gens it’s easy to get some bigger tires on them. The 4th gen is geared more toward mall crawlers but still has the capability which I think is cool
Avoid 04-06 auto trans since they fail sometimes (I have an 05 auto with no problems fwiw). The 04-06 manual trans models got brembos and an lsd so look for one of those or an 07-08 TL-S with a manual trans. The 07-08 auto models do not fail but might as well get a 6 speed.
Can confirm that a vq35 pathfinder beats the hell out of a 3rd gen 4runer as I’ve owned both. I’m more of a zj guy myself but I agree that the wj is better than the wk1 which is very unreliable and cheap and “chryslery “
The $5k ish Acura that Andrew has is an 04-08 Acura TL. Not nearly as exciting as the picks closer to $10k but 6mt, 270hp v6, brembos, and an LSD with a comfy and solid interior is still a compelling package.
That’s all it is and it’s all I really wanted as an upgrade. The 3rd gen just looks a little off without mild mods.
