It would be interesting to see the Venn diagram of Tesla owners who also own an iPhone. I bet the Android carrying Tesla driver is a very rare thing.

Is it weird that I really want this thing? And also that I want to hot rod the s**t out of that small block V8 to make a 600+hp A-team van and take it to the drag strip?

This is exactly my dealer, in a different state. I wonder if GM is underestimating the value of having dealers in all these in-between type towns. I buy Cadillac largely because of the local dealer and convenient service. If I’m going to the nearest big city for a Cadillac I am much more likely to buy a German brand Read more

That’s exactly where I am and I’ve purchased several Cadillacs because they are the only ‘luxury’ brand dealer within 75 miles or so. It is convenient for service. My Caddy dealer is also Buick/GMC and does not sell a ton of Cadillacs. I’ve had some German brands that are not sold in my town of ~60k people and they Read more

There’s one in my neighborhood. Not far from the neighbor with a Cascada too. I have weird neighbors.

I like it! Would def want the Edition 1 spec though. I’d love to see a Wrangler sized Hummer EV with the same roof and design aesthetic for $50-60k.

True, but when I bought my FR-S some years ago it was about $30k out the door. The very lightly optioned LT1 manual was $30k and change after discounts and incentives (which included $2500 on my GM Card, which is not available to everyone). Maybe this is apples/oranges comparison, but in my case it was a real world Read more

I don’t completely disagree. I had an FR-S (10-series) manual for a few years. It had the TRD intake and exhaust, which I think opened it up a little. It was nimble, great shifter, and overall a lot of fun. But you had to wring its neck for it to not be really slow. The HP was acceptable, but the lack of torque made Read more

I’d settle for 250HP if NA and revs high. But it won’t start at $25k. More than needing power, GT86/BRZ/FR-S is too expensive for what it is. I bought a new LT1 V8 Camaro, 6-speed manual, for $30k, and it is twice the car as a 86/BRZ (I had a FR-S for a while).

I think it’s crazy to hook up 14,000 pounds to any half-ton truck. The suspension and frame has traditionally not been up to that kind of weight. Now, maybe Ford has beefed up the 1/2-ton here to support it but me thinks this is a bit risky to promote that kind of towing capability to average Joe half-ton pickup Read more

Maybe the dealer that found ‘metal shavings’ in the oil and where the sales rep said it won’t come up in trade-in here is just using that as a tactic to sell a new car?

I agree with that take - 718 Boxster is just too expensive with a 4-cylinder. Porsches all around are too expensive for what they are, except for the GT3/2 at MSRP, and this is coming from a guy that bought a new 991.2 Carrera. Even the GTS 4.0/Spyder/GT4 suffers from the long gearing which ruins the street driving Read more

Here here! But you’re preaching to the choir man. I’ve bought a lot of new cars and chosen a manual every time one was available. Sometimes I had to order that car, which is OK since I can add another manual unit into production that otherwise wouldn’t be there. I think manufacturers get it, especially for niche Read more

Avalanche was awesome. Very versatile. Could also remove the rear window and leave the midgate up for a sorta almost K5 Blazer open back experience.

I know I will get excoriated for saying this here, but for non-car people who want a comfy, efficient, practical, reliable, and inexpensive car - Buick Encore. Can be had for <$20k new all day long and comes with a better than average Buick warranty. It has a conventional 6-speed auto and 1.4 turbo with reliable port i Read more

Ha true! I live in the midwest and see an Aztek almost everyday. Not too long ago there were three of them in traffic in front of me, one of which was yellow. I seriously wondered if this was staged for some reason, but I don’t think it was.
