You are right, the Outback’s interior lacks a turbo. And the tow rating is a disappointing interior feature. But the language of the owner’s manual really brings down the whole interior experience.

Have you driven a 2015+ Outback? The interior is just as good/bad as the interior of a CR-V, Rav-4, or Ford Escape. What exactly do you expect in a $30,000 car?

That’s the biggest head scratcher with the new Subaru Ascent. You must choose between a 60/40 bench (with a fake middle seat, so not even a real bench) or captains chairs in the second row. Why not copy a minivan and provide a removable middle seat? For a company selling practicality, this is just dumb.

I regret getting snarky. I just bought a brand new car at 0% and already made up the lost incentives by sticking the money in zero risk CDs, so my opinion is based on experience. Read more

Ford is also saddled with pension and other retirement obligations, right? Tesla or any other newcomer has a huge advantage there.

Or get a 0% loan and keep your family safe in a modern car while making money off the 35 grand you invested.

I will reply to myself and amend my statement about the XC60, it has adequate headroom for me, but not “loads”. I just like really like that car.

My buddy who is 6'11" and rents cars about 30 weeks a year swears by the Kia Soul. He owns a Ram quad cab. My coworker who is 6'7" has a GMC Acadia. I’m 6'3" with a long torso and do well in my Odyssey. Test drove an XC60, it has loads of head room and will probably be my next car.

Spiderland blew my mind when it was released. I still get chills listening to it today. Thank you for posting this.

I have high school memories by friend’s GTI breaking down constantly and being a total POS, so CP no matter the condition. This car is one of the reasons VW has such a shitty reputation. CP all day.

There is a prick driving one of these around in my neighborhood, regularly blows through red lights and does double the limit.  Yay.

Yeah it was the odd duck of Toyota’s truck history but served me well for almost 15 years. I ended up selling it to a buddy to haul his fishing gear. It’s a great truck, ticked 315K miles and will easily go another 300. My next truck will be a Toyota without a doubt.

eh, I’ve driven three as loaded long term rentals (Kia, Chrysler, Toyota) and own a ‘16 Odyssey. Driving-wise the Odyssey wins, feels like an Accord. Pacifica is almost there. But the Pacifica destroys them all in modern features and interior sweetitude. That sunroof... mmmmm.

This doesn’t make a lot of sense. A car is a depreciating asset whether you finance it or pay cash. A new car carries a warranty. A used car does not, unless you buy one, which affects the value proposition of a used car. A very used car, that is near the bottom of a depreciation curve, is a higher repair risk. No Read more
