    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..

    • WOW, that SUV could so easily be a Buick too with the headlights / daytime trim lights.
    • Lately, there has been a trend in the large crossover segment to replace naturally aspirated V6es with engines containing two fewer cylinders and some form of boost, either turbo or hybrid, sometimes both. The Infiniti QX60 is the latest model to join the trend. For 2025, Infiniti is switching the QX60 to its 2.0-liter Variable Compression turbo-charged engine, also found in the QX50 and QX55. The engine produces 268 horsepower and 286 lb-ft of torque. This represents a drop of 27 horsepower but an increase of 16 lb-ft of torque over a broader engine speed range. The QX60 retains its 9-speed automatic and gains a transmission fluid cooler, bringing the tow rating to 6,000 lbs for every trim. Like the V6 before it, the 2-liter VC-Turbo runs on premium fuel.  The new powertrain slightly increases fuel efficiency to 22 city / 28 highway / 24 combined over last year's model specs of 20 city / 25 highway / 22 combined for front-wheel drive models. Compared to front-wheel drive, all-wheel drive models lose 1 mpg highway. The most direct competitor to the Infiniti QX60, the Buick Enclave, also moved to a 4-cylinder turbo for 2025, and we expect others in this segment to follow suit. View full article
    • They have lockable boxes you can mount the charger in.  I agree that there's no rush to get the charger, but if you're already doing construction work inside, run at least any conduit or wiring needed now and leave it disconnected.    I found out about 30 minutes ago that I didn't get the job.  Back to the drawing board, I guess.  I hate job hunting.
    • I haven't actually done anything about it but we have plenty of power and the electric box is mounted on an exterior wall and I'm sure it would be as simple as running wire through the wall and mounting a charger outside. We still don't have a garage so I'm a little iffy if I want anything electric until that's done, so it can be inside. I know they make exterior chargers, but I'd just feel better if it was inside.    Yaaay, public transit! I take a bus every day to STL. I drive 1 mile to the bus and the bus does the remaining 29 miles. I did the math a couple years ago and I think in just fuel, I saved like 15k in the 7 or 8 years I had been here. Tomorrow will actually be my 10-year anniversary at my company. I'm sure my savings are around 20k in gasoline alone, let alone maintenance and tires. 
    • You're right ... it would also have to be trimmed out.  I don't think wheel well skirts were the way to go since Pontiac tried to purvey the image of being the sportiest among the full-sized GM boulevardiers and the skirts don't work well with their trademark rally wheels. Also, as I got closer to that Bonneville coupe in Yosemite, I believe the fabric seats had this cool tweed-like look - in that apple green I mentioned - instead of the over the top velour pillowed seats you might see in the upline Grandville Brougham. I would have loved to have driven one of these cars at some point just to see what they feel like.  I'm sure they're fine on the freeway, but it would be interesting to know how they behave on the 2-lane mountain roads into Yosemite and other mountain destinations.
