how about a CT-6? AWD. GORGEOUS (IMO), has the GM 3.6 liter which is really reliable... and back seat space for days. Plus a 2019 can be had near new for that budget.

Yeah, when I think “family car”, I think three rows. Even if you only have two kids, that’s two car seats sucking up the entire back for several years making it impossible to seat even five. Having three means that you can’t all fit in this car until two kids are in school and out of booster seats.

This is great for Read more

My Honda mower. It has worked flawlessly since I bought it six years ago. Pulled it out of the box, added fuel, pulled the cord once, and it started right up. Still starts on the first pull. It’s the best mower I’ve ever owned.

Not so - the Fiat 127, which used the same basic hatchback design, came out years before the Golf.

I think Jason’s talking about family cars. The Scirocco is technically a hatchback but is really meant to be a sports coupe, in much the same way that the Porsche 928, Mazda RX-7, Toyota Supra, and Honda CRX are also technically hatchbacks.

The Ritmo Abarth looks cool. And if you have a crew of mechanics to keep it running, looks like fun too. Is it the *best* looking? Gonna have to disagree with you there Torch. ...But I wouldn’t kick it out of the garage for leaking coolant from the overflow tank.

Well shit. That sure beats all the crap that my son, his scout troop and I pulled out of a ravine yesterday as part of the Clean Your Streams day. Seven plus tires, broken bikes, scooters and 20+ bags of garbage. It was nasty

It makes 130 horsepower and 240 torques from how many litres? Because my 2.5 300TDI makes 111hp from a lot less and 264 NM. And does 30mpg. Hmm. Might swap that into a lotus, it is torquey as hell, if it wasn’t hauling around 2.2 tons of Range Rover around it might even be fast. Terrible idea forming... 300TDI swapped Read more

Not mentioned in this article but maybe worth mentioning— that diesel made all of 130hp and something like 240tq, since it wasn’t turbocharged. Not exactly a screamer. In fact, many have called the 6.2L GM diesel and the Oldsmobile diesels as the engines that killed American diesels for quite some time, due to their Read more
