Perfect. We'll take it for a spin over to Reedman so I can look at this: https://www.reedmantollchryslerdodgejee ... d2a305.htm
Think they’ll give us balloons too?

Red interior? Take a pic if you check it out. Could be :tits: if it’s an oxblood red.
Red stitch comes up as red in a decoder, it's black leather with suede and red stitching.
Got it. Probably looks cool in person.

I have been. I'd be fine with a 4 cyl late model Rav4 (reliable, drive nice, somewhat quiet, quick enough, etc) but the way they look :gaydance: little rat faced things with nonsensical interior ergonomics, I just can't do it. New one is too expensive.

Last gen Forester is so damn frumpy and very rattle prone. Every one I test drove rattled like crazy. But again drove well, felt quick enough, handled pretty great for what it is. I'd get annoyed at it way too quickly.

CX5 is rougher than I want but otherwise a nice vehicle.

Ford Escape, Rogue, Mitsubishi anything, H/K, just no. And the CRV is the epitome of minivan-becomes-CUV, it's 1,000% mom spec with a nice side dose of fuel dilution.

Kinda don't really know what to do. You can look at the used premium stuff but :gay: 91 octane requirements start to come up because they're all turbo, plus :gay: maintenance requirements and :gay: service costs, bleh, I just don't care for that.
I really like the 2013-18 or whatever year RDX. That V6 is silky smooth and makes nice power, especially compared to something like the 2.5 in the CX5. They ride well too and don’t totally suck to drive. :iono:
I still think this is the winner as well, RDX is the smaller one, right? I'd definitely be looking at those but I am talking out my ass as I really know nothing of this category. NA V6 is the way to go here though, for JP. No lag, no high maintenance, no summer city heat-soak, all the powah to avoid dangerously slow.

On a positive note, I adjusted the seat mounting bracket, the stock bolts had some wiggle room, so I lowered the back and raised the front, probably got an extra 1/2" or more of thigh support. Pushed the seat backwards one more click, and the seat a click more upright. So far control seems better but it's less comfortable on my back. Will experiment more.

God fucking dammit now I have to deal with this bullshit hit and run.

My guess would be that Chris took some time off because he has read the dialogue on this page 1,345 times and decided to spend some of his free time doing something besides beating a horse to death.

I mean, it's bright fucking blue. It's not like someone couldn't see it. I really don't know if it was a suburban retard driver or an electric bike delivery :manuel: I unfortunately left it in a "danger zone" near Pats and Genos, where a ton of suburban idiots and drunk eagles fans like to go to get disgusting cheesesteaks. As such there's a lot of turnover in those parking spots by people that are "scared of the city" or not used to parallel parking. But the more I look at it the less I see how a car did it.
