It looks like it just drove out of a time warp. And an SC to boot. Wowzers.
I’d like to see them eat the other half of the humble pie they’ve baked themselves.
I love the Herc because its one of those timeless designs that is so close to perfect, there’s no real point in trying to re-invent the wheel.
Ya, surely it has to mount in the trunk, sneaking the cables up the C pillar?
The Aston is more my style, but the comparative ease of maintaining the Mustang makes me favor it.
Hah, both are good, the Viper one is laugh out loud.
Well, that sucks, but look on the bright side:
The appearance of the buyer’s guide is disturbing. Even more disturbing is they seem to be embarrassed about this series, the author is “Jalopnik Staff”. Some credit must be due, however. When they reviewed the Jeep Compass I half expected them to write it as if FCA PR was looking over their shoulder, but they did…
I didn’t hesitate to recommend it to a good friend as a solid buy. He’s enjoyed his enormously (a 2002, low miles, $6000).
Insurance rates vary so much I can’t answer that question, but it is true, generally speaking, a 4-door is cheaper to insure than a 2-door. But other factors, like (obviously) your driving record, your neighborhood (fraud rates, theft rates), the safety rating of the car (less medical payouts for them) and the…
Uh, can’t you get an old Corolla with the old 4A motor? I thought they hung around for a long time, Wiki says until 2002.
My DD, a 2008 TL, has an even more state-of-the-art cassette! Made under lic. for Acura by Panasonic, it’s one of the finest, and one of the last, tape decks ever installed in a production vehicle. It’s probably one of the only cars out there with both a tape deck and satellite radio.
Win, those wheels do look good, especially with that color.
It’s a Police Norman.
So you want something reliable and cheap to insure with a stick in the $5k range?
Get a Honda or Acura of some type. Honda manuals are some of the best in the business. Civic Si, Accord V6, Acura TSX.
So that’s why many BMW’s don’t signal. The signal fluid pump breaks easily due to cheap plastic and the owners don’t bother to fix it, because its a $1400 part, not including labor.
“My V8 makes 60 horsepower!”
Biased opinion, but....3G TL. Type-S if you want a manual.
For a moment I was like, “WTF kind of shifter is that?” And then I saw the tell-tale 12 Volt plug and the air direction panel. “Oh,” I said, “Volvo. Of course.”
They always feel they have to do things differently.
Well, one can imagine somebody saying the same thing about Citroen in the 1960s. “I prefer a solid axle and leaf springs over this fancy Frenchie SLS.”
