Well I thought it looks cool, that interior is fantastic, and while near 30k might be kindof demanding, I could see putting in the money for the risk. NP
Absolutely. Whether the safety precautions I take when working under a car, quite reasonable or even erring on the side of safety under normal circumstances, would be adequate if you threw a substantial earthquake into the picture... that’s another question.
Apparently I like the overhang beltline styling.
First I am not a General Motors fan at all. Someone made an entire decades long career out bashing a car that was basically no more dangerous than many other cars from the same era. I’m not saying it was fraud but today I think someone writing a book like that would be subject to massive and overwhelming litigation. …
Beer and hot dog.......YUM! Happy 4th to all!
The centre-mounted keyswitch was brilliant - no more hitting your knee. They also did the keyfobs better than anyone else I’ve seen other than VW.
That’s weird. The poll looks alright to me. Are you using one of those new folding phones?
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.
