    Yeah, I was not amused. Can't complain with how they treated me though, put me in a nicely loaded Nissan Altima without me asking. It was after that I did some digging and found this wasn't an isolated instance, many others have gotten hit by the same code.

    Actually depends on where you are, many towns in Maine allow ATVs on the roads, and if you uncork the ECU on those rigs they'll push well past 70mph.

    Yeah, that's my one concern, going back to an american auto, will it be repair city? That's part of the calculous of leasing vs buying. While I'm leasing, it's Chrysler's car, it's in their interest to keep it running so they have something sale-able at the end. If turns out to be a proper bastard, they get it back and I go back to likely Toyota.

    Toyota needs to bring back a Land Cruiser "light", like the old ones. I know the FJ was supposed kind of fill that niche, but it was really pretty big. Need something more utilitarian.

    I’m shocked that I’ve read the new Bronco plans to be able to take the doors and top off... I thought Jeep was grandfathered into that being legal somehow. But if it is legal, I wish the last FJ was able to do that, and I agree with wanting an FJ light, I coulda sworn I read there was something in the works from Toyota.

    Volkswagen's US CEO says around $25,000 would be a smart price for a small pickup - Roadshow

    I do see an opportunity where these trucks have all moved into the 50s and the 60s [pricing] and beyond," Keogh added, alluding to the escalating price of full-size pickups. "That is the price of an expensive luxury car, not a normal luxury car, and I think there is an opportunity because people do need these vehicles, and I think Volkswagen's always made cars for people who need vehicles. You know, they have families, they need safety, they need things, so you have to hit a good price point, and I think we can."

    I filled up the Tundra this morning and noticed gas prices creeping up again. Wondering if a smaller truck and dump trailer would suit me.

    Creeping? $0.50 up in 20 days.

    Just finished a family trip to New Jersey and back. Got 33.6 mpg in the CRV, including in garbage Merritt Parkway bumped to bumper stop and go traffic for 46 miles.

    A new fullsize getting almost 20mpg doesn't sound all too appealing.

    New Ranger is the same price OTD, can tow about the same, but has way fewer bells and whistles.


    VW should be onto something building a small truck for relatively cheap. IF it can tow 5k lbs min, even if it does it slowly. The magic equation between capability and day to day efficiency is key.

    Saw a Ranger in person yesterday. Ugly as fuck.

    That said, road trips in trucks are pretty sweet.

    Hey Kurlon.. does your Jeep have LATCH kid-seat anchors?
    This weekend we confirmed that late model TJ's do not.

    Some quick googling says the JKs do for the rear seats, You are being redirected... confirms. I see LATCH anchors on the back seats of my JL as well. I suspect they're only on the 4dr versions.

    I just averaged 17.91mpg thru a tank in my 04. I’m content, I would’ve guessed more 15ish
