Came here to say some version of this. Take your star.

“Here’s everything that is wrong with <new project>“

Neutral:
WTF is a ‘crossover’ anymore, anyway? If it is unibody without 4x4 (not AWD), I consider it a tall car. From there, the tradeoffs are a personal. Better visibility for marginally less fuel economy? Sure. Room to keep your booster- and 5-point child seat-sitting children to stop kicking the back of your seat? Read more

So you are saying this could decimate all, if, you spend 10,000 and have to overnight parts from Japan?

False.
It is anywhere Americans have an overinflated sense of self-worth and disrespect for other drivers.

So, most places?

It weighs the same as a church, but is proof that you can put a jet engine on anything and make it fly. These are a few mods away from sick horsepower.

Given the condition of the other cars, I am going to assume this runs, even though it does not mention that it does.
NP, but barely.

Agreed. I am a little bothered I had to scroll super-far to find love for the Nissan.
User is likely to come out better for the same money than any 10 year old 4Runner.  Besides, the Xterras are all at least 5 years old now, and they are, essentially, unchanged since 2004? 5?  Get one from after the SMOD debacle and Read more

In this case, though, would finding a manual Wrangler be so terrible an idea from DT, even though he is banned from the suggesting of same?

In my neck of the woods, any running pickup starts at $2k USD, which I figure is about $5.5k CNDND (How the f do you shorten “Canadian Dollars”?).

Everything that may be objectionable, at least ‘roun heah, would be quickly fixed with a custom rattle-can camouflage paint job.

Nice Price.

If you had said this 10 years ago, I would have immediately pictured an HP curve that was extremely peaky (like when the Celica made ~181 HP@ 7k, but ~84@5k (guessing on the second number))
As a hybrid plug-in battery thingy whatever, I am okay with this. I can picture the battery pushing up the left side of the curve Read more

Yes, it is.  I do not drive 600 miles at a clip, so it is different for me.  I realize I will need to meet the technology halfway.

Mine is 18.  I don’t do much better on a tank sometimes than extended range EVs, especially when I dip into the 17 mpg range.

2nd Gear: Good. I am rapidly becoming an old, and even I think the EV revolution can’t come fast enough.
My wife knows I will have a Rivian in a year or two, but I may need to start with a Volt. It did take some time to get to the realization that I am on my last ICE vehicle, but my daughters are 5 and 7.

I am free to remove every airbag in my vehicle.
I just can’t resell it if I do, at least in Virginia, but I can still drive it on public roads as I please.

Neutral: I used to work at a Nissan dealership, C-level tech, parts guy extraordinaire.
There is tech I worked with that is painfully honest about everything, even, sometimes, to his detriment.
He is my guy, costs be damned.

My; that did escalate quickly. Am I missing something?  I pretty much only come here, and I don’t fully understand what Kinja is, so maybe I am better off?

California is not saying that everyone has to do what they want. Some states just happen to agree with them.
I wonder if this would be the same if Rhode Island decided that their native crab population required everyone to have an EV?
California is exercising their rights to say what can be sold in their state. Those Read more
