Airplane mechanic checking in here. This is no outside the parameters of normal usage or in this case lack of usage (airplanes in storage). The 5th state bleed air check valve is a spring loaded plunger like check valve who’s purpose is to prevent back flow of 5th stage bleed air from the other bleed systems on the Read more

Personally I’d rather stay away from the “exotics” - one of the things about the Bronco’s revival is that it’s not just for the super weatlthy like a Miura or Lancia Stratos would be.

Definitely thought of the Sensonic when I read this article. In particular, I thought of the Top Gear episode where James May was attempting to parallel park a Saab 900 Sensonic on a hill. Carnage and hilarity ensued. I’m assuming Hyundai made some kind of provision to hold the car to start on hills?

SAAB for sure. They were outside the box and would have been awesome electric. Imagine a new version of the 95 not (the 9-5 mind you) with electric power.

Sure, you CAN get trailer tires that are rated for higher speeds. They won’t come on the trailer, they will DEFINITELY not be on ANY rental trailer, and nobody does. Which leads to the frequent boat/trailer “yard sales” all over the Maine Turnpike every summer. Don’t be a dumbass, and you can use European tow ratings Read more

We get it. You don’t like trucks. In a little over a month, you have posted three articles implying trucks are terrible. Don’t buy one. Read more

I’m willing to pay for added capability (and niceness), to a point - I have owned a number of rather expensive cars. There isn’t nearly enough added capability here to justify the silly price tag. No matter how you slice it, this is just a hot hatch with a lift kit. Which is just dumb to start with. No car has ever Read more

A Golf can tow a braked trailer up to 1800Kg - how much more do you need to tow? And having looked at these on the lot - not sure it REALLY has more cargo capacity. The cargo bay is a little longer, but it’s a lot shallower. Read more

So what does this do that a Golf R won’t do for rather less than half price? Other than have a Porsche badge and impress your law practice partners, of course? Is that extra 1.25" or so of ground clearance really going to matter ever?

Best seats I’ve ever sat in were the 9000 Aero seats, bar none. No Porsche, BMW or Volvo before or after could ever quite match them.

Yes, SAAB had the best seats in the game. They were also the first to have heated seats.

There was a car company called SAAB once.  It was a great time.  And their cars had hands-down the best seats for all duties except for track use.  As for the aesthetics, all car seats today has nothing on the ones from the 70s and the 80s - they were pretty funky.

If you squint, those cars are nearly indistinguishable in terms of their curves and basic features. Also, not too far off from a Urus if you ignore its toothy grill.

So, you’re suggesting that crossovers look alike? The hell you say!

Yeah.. people on here are crazy about it because E46s are in-vogue right now. I see a boring, slow, automatic listed for $901 more than my “if it runs and drives well, it’s auto-NP” threshold. Not to mention that interior quite literally falls apart. Seen it on both a E46 M3 (mine) and an identical (but tan interior) Read more

He set the temperature to 83 degrees because he’s afraid of the car overheating.  Car has cooling issues.  Calling it now.

Yep, the 240SX body has aged extremely well. Nissan’s uber clean styling was so dead on back then. What the hell happened to them? Read more

This 600 hp Saab 9-5 (dynoed at 523whp) was listed for only $10,000. Seriously overpowered for FWD, but should provide endless entertainment on rolling starts.
