I’ve yet to be in a set of heated seats I’ve liked.  Most of them make me feel like I’ve just crapped my pants.  In my coworker’s Altima, it avoids that issue, but is slow to warm and never gets genuinely hot.

Also, I do want to say “caltrac bars” is a brand name, like Kleenex is to tissue. I think traction bars is the generic name.

I have not (and secretly I don’t want to; right now, I don’t know what I’m missing). I guess because I do so little driving without AC it just makes no difference to me. Maybe if I had a Wrangler? Even when I had my C6 coupe with the roof off I didn’t have an issue.

I can respect that. I just don’t care enough about it. Like, if I could have it for free, I’m on board, but I don’t see enough value in it to spend more than a couple bucks on it.

Consumers do have options. 1) order the vehicle, wait 6 weeks - 3 months. 2) buy another vehicle.

I hate keys, I hate having to pull keys out of my pocket, and I hate having to put them back in while also grabbing various other things when I get in and out of the car. Read more

I know Honda makes an accessory CD player for the Pilot.  My sister in law was surprised the first time she went to play a CD in her new car. That is what finally gave her the shove to move to streaming audio.

I get what you’re saying, but CarPlay/Android Auto today is roughly equivalent to selling a car without a tape deck in the 80s. Read more

That’s roughly equivalent to walking onto the lot, buying what’s available, and hoping you get a good incentive bundle.

tl;dr leaf springs riding on top a solid axle is not a great recipe for drag strip success. Caltrac bars (like you see on the F150 in the top pic) solve a TON of the issue associated with that. Read more

Because the F150 wasn’t designed to do 12 second quarter miles? I mean, my Tundra has its factory suspension and stock power, and you get a ton of axle hop if you try to launch it hard.

You may be a couple hundred lbs short if you take out the unused seats and such, but you’re not going to want to go to race car levels of stripped out, you’ll be exhausted in no time with the road noise and vibrations you’ll be hearing. Meanwhile, you’re adding almost 2000lbs of passengers, modifications, and cargo to Read more

A Suburban with fairly minimal mods wouldn’t be stealthy? WE’re not looking for something hellaflush levels of low, just lower than stock. I think a 1 inch drop in the front and 2-3 in the rear is enough to keep it stock looking to all but the most eagle eyed. Read more

That much weight going that fast is adding even more risk to an already risky situation, not just because you’re traveling that fast with that much weight, but because you’re going to be far more capable of finding adequate tires on a lighter car. Truck tires rarely are rated for speeds that high, and high speed tires Read more

Sorta? I think of Jeep as the bare bones, go anywhere kind of vehicle. An off-road only vehicle isn’t a go anywhere vehicle, just as much as the newer Wranglers aren’t bare bones. Compared to a Gelandewagen it is, but my mental image of a Jeep is a 2 door with the roof back, doors missing, and three pedals.
