    It's probably a great little car but I don't care a whole lot for small, FWD cars. 

    Thank you, cannot remember who it was but someone here on the boards was always talking about the Golf and Polo and how they would be great cars.

    I wanted to give a vote on this post. But I dont know which one to give.

    1. I cant  give an upvote because although I agree with the post. I dont also.  I mean, I UNDERSTAND what you mean, I agree with you, but I dont as I, my wife really, doesnt mind a small FWD car...  And THAT is where I dont agree. Not with the statement, I undersatand your statement, but I dont mind a small FWD car...   

    2. I cant give you a heart because...well...see above.

    3. its not a negative vote...

    4. Its not a Hell Yeah vote.  Because obviously this kinda car could actually BE in my driveway. But not for ME.  For my wife. Because for ME, I ALSO dont care a whole lot for a small car.  I dont mind the FWD part though...

    5. Its not a sad or confused vote...

    6. Its not a great idea. Its not educational.  Although it might be educational as we just educated ourselves as to how you feel about small FWD cars...

    7. Its not a facepalm

    So its best not to vote?

    So this post gets an upvote instead...


    Depending how small it is, if its too small, then maybe my wife wont want it.

    For now,  if we need to get a brand new EV...for her...its a Chevy Equinox EV.  

    For me.  NOTHING is out there that I would like to own.   ICE or EV.

    Sure...a Challenger or Mustang is always nice.  Those arent too usefull for my needs though.

    Maybe the Dodge Banshee/Charger EV that is still a concept might be the answer.  

    Or Ill bight the bullet and get myself a CUV.  The Mustang Mach-E.

    I just don't like small cars in general.  Too noisy on the road, cramped and uncomfortable. For my next new car, it will probably be another Grand Cherokee...maybe an Overland or Summit w/ the McIntosh stereo.  

    I'm channeling my inner 65 year old, but I would love a brand new 1996 Cadillac Brougham, Buick Roadmaster or Lincoln Town Car w/ today's infotainment systems, soft-touch interior trim and today's V8 power and efficiency.  But with the classic cushy seats and ride and quiet...I want serenity in my drive, but still want blast some U2, NIN, Eagles, Joe Bonamassa, Pink Floyd, Pearl Jam, or Beethoven when I feel like it..

  • Volkswagen ID.Buzz Coming to the U.S. in Long-Wheelbase Form

    Volkswagen has been teasing us with the I.D. Buzz for 6-years when they made the announcement back in 2017 that they would bring the I.D. Buzz to market. The standard wheelbase model has been on sale in Europe since May of last year, and today, Volkswagen is officially announcing the long-wheelbase version for sale in the U.S. starting next year. The ID.Buzz will not, as previously reported, be built at VW's Chatanooga plant alongside the ID.4, instead being built in VW's Hanover Germ


    The New Chevrolet Colorado gets a New Bison ZR2

    The performance off-road mid-size pickup truck war has turned into a hot war in 2023.  Ford has recently released their 2024 Ford Ranger Raptor, and Toyota introduced an all-new 2024 Tacoma with an incredibly capable Tacoma TRD Off Road. Back in 2018, Chevrolet teamed up with American Expedition Vehicles to the 2019 Chevy Colorado Bison ZR2 to the Colorado lineup.  About a year ago, the all-new 2023 Colorado was released, and while there was a ZR2, the Bison was not part of the announcement

    • BBQ season has begun!!! I decided to on Saturday make baby back ribs. I decided I wanted to do two types of ribs, a traditional honey BBQ sauced ribs and one based on a Korean Spicy Pork dish which uses Gochujang which is the base of the sauce. A Gochujang BBQ sauce. To make sure the ribs were tender and juicy, I had been doing research on Brines. Wet Brine: 6 cups water, divided 1 (12 oz) light beer or imperial 1 cup apple juice or cider 1 cup dark brown sugar (sub light brown sugar if that’s what you have) 1/2 cup Kosher salt1 tablespoon granulated garlic1 tablespoon granulated onion 1/2 tablespoon Chinese 5 Spice 2 cups ice cubes I bought 10lbs of baby back Prime ribs from business Costco, so I doubled the Brine batch to ensure that they were well covered. I used two 19oz IPA Indian Pale Ale from DESCHUTES brewery. I then salt and peppered two racks of ribs and used my pork rub on the other two racks of ribs. I then wrapped them in parchment paper, covered with foil and back into the fridge for another 24hr nap before grilling them slowly. I have to say they came out very tender, juicy beyond compare, best ribs I have made yet, 250, slow go for almost 4hrs using only the outside two burners on my grill. The traditional ribs were awesome with a nice sweet sauce. The Gochujang BBQ sauce is a spice lovers dream. Darker than the traditional sauce in the pictures, this sauce was put on the salt n pepper ribs. Rich deep flavor, spicy, tender and the bones were left clean. For those wanting to try this sauce on their ribs, here is a very similar recipe that my wife has made as everything is in her head. https://www.koreanbapsang.com/dweji-bulgogi-korean-spicy-pork-bbq/ We add red pepper flakes to kick up the heat, make it as thin or thick as you like, adjust to personal taste.  
    • Missed that in my quick look while catching up on work from PTO.
    • Agree comfort should always be in Luxury Auto's foremost, but sadly brand name bragging has made things less so. I have no problem with the thinner seats that are made in the Escalade as long as they offer comfort, sadly the thinner seats are hard as a rock limiting road trip comfort.

    • MECHANICAL PHOTOS A full view of the engine bay and this car has a prop rod to keep the hood up; my guess would be that the orange harnesses are a way to easily identify elements critical to the hybrid/electric system In front of the engine and behind the radiator and fan shroud, that appears to possibly be an emission control component - is it an O2 sensor and is that a catalytic converter or related component?  They often have metallic shields like that around them. Left side of the engine bay with the pulley area Right side of the engine bay with air intake and easy to access battery
