:plac: Finds: Show us your automotive goldmines

I thought it was a situation where the engine had to be on... or some "two mode" or whatever the marketing term that was used. The one I drove would go in full electric, no engine on, until 20mph or so. Like I said, I even got it to 30 mph once. Unless that was a ringer for the press, I assumed the...

The hybrid truck concept made no sense... It was like $5k+ over a regular truck and quite a bit of extra weight. for only a marginal city only benefit. Also they weren't full blown hybrids in a way a prius was... AFAIK... At $2 a gallon ain't nobody paying extra to save fuel.. The prius is STRUGGLI...

Not in my age group I guess. I mean, they are ridiculous, and not in a good way. Dedong lift kit, Dedong engine, but too huge to really go on the trails, yes? Just a bromobile of epic proportion. Agreed. Feels on dis? http://d1arsn5g9mfrlq.cloudfront.net/sites/default/files/2017-chevrolet-colorado-...

Chassis is same Engine is same Brakes are same Transmission is Same Interior is mostly the same However I think the biggest difference is the '40 from Desert, since it has the different engine spec.

Over 1k off for a special ordered limited edition STI is a great deal IMO. Most ppl will pay sticker for that.

They can lie to your face 24/7 which is what they are paid to do bruh... Today there is a tornado in Japan and GODZILLA was spotted of the island of Fiji, therefore STI pricing went up $400.

Leasing prevents you from being upside down. IMO it is the way to go right now. Soon enough leasing payments will EXCEED the actual monthlies for stretch pay so leasing will once again fall out of favor though. Leasing is not bad at all. You get a rock solid number that you pay monthly for your new...

The Grand Tour: All systems are go!

Reddit is kind of shredding this 2nd episode down. After reading a lot of the comments I agree. The jokes just aren't as funny when they're scripted. https://www.reddit.com/r/cars/comments/5f9e4q/amazon_grand_tour_rant/?st=iw2dfygv&sh=dd7566dd Yea not exactly sure why they left that out... consider...

I have been bitching about this for a long time... it just keeps snowballing with every new report. The average american can not afford the average vehicle purchase.
