Retired FCA guy here. I once spent 6 weeks driving around the Midwest launching the Caliber to our dealers via presenting a half day training module to the entire dealer staff on the showroom floor.
I think it would be interesting to see people’s reactions if cars today had the reliability standards of thirty or forty years ago. Muffler replacement after 20k miles. Engine life of 100k. Tune-ups and carburetor calibration. We have come a long way, even for the least-reliable vehicles for sale today.
You bastard, now I have to mop coffee out of my keyboard.
Owner decided it was actually too reliable and wanted to step up to a Range Rover.
Agree with both points, but as far as #1 is concerned I think there’s more to it, unless the bent license plate is a Cali thing. The way it’s bent makes me think there was a front end collision at some point.
Had an 02 and all can say is once bitten, twice shy. In the short 2.5 years I own it and bought it brand new off the lot I had a bad coil pack and multiple brake sensors go out.... The vr6 is fun and it is great to drive but the small bugs with the car will drive you crazy. I couldn't get rid of it fast enough.
WD40 is a mild solvent that works pretty well on glue and stickers without taking off paint.
Lol- oh you’re very right. I just don’t understand that guy - but I think he did it during the 1980s, when we all thought RWD was dying.
Sorry, it wasn’t a counterpoint or critique. Just seemed fitting :)
Ok, fair point. But I’d like to think we would convert a FWD car to RWD rather than vice versa.
a lot of time and effort to implement some highly questionable desires.
Preach on, bruh.
Doesn’t mean it’s a good price.
I dig the rig. There just isn’t $14.5k of camper there. If you spend your time looking at $100k+ expedition vehicles, this might look like a bargain with its minimalist accommodations, but apples-to-apples, you shouldn’t be paying this much for this little.
There’s a bench and a table in the bed of the truck. Pretty sure I can do that for cheaper. CP
the FCU (feral cat unit) is an underutilized measure.
I have seen a LOT of contractors, electricians, plumbers ect use dodge minivans as work vehicles. Just the front seats are present, and the interior is usually mess. I don’t know if they buy them second hand or its the old family mover. You can cram a lot of stuff into am empty minivan and they can carry quite a…
Don’t forget the Corvair Rampside! Two tailgates, one in the back and one on the side! I heard a rumor that they were designed for Bell, as they were stringing telephone wires across the country. They could roll the big spool right out the side of the bed, couldn’t do that in any other truck. Don’t know if it’s true…
Those questions have been valid on 3/4 and 1-ton trucks for a couple decades now. Nothing changed with this truck that wasn’t already a concern for this class of trucks already.
