  1. Random Thoughts Thread

    Had a year old Hyundai Santa Fe Sport as rental on our family vacation last week. Did over 250 miles on highway and some city driving. Not a bad car even in the base form, good amount of space, large trunk. Base seats are just ok, not bad but not super comfortable either. Connecting and streaming music through Bluetooth was easy and worked well. Handling was decent but steering is very vague, to the point when it was hard to keep the car in lane, and I never had that problem in any car I have driven before. Steering totally killed it for me.
  2. Drove Both American and German take on RSes

    @Frisky Dingo I am curious if you had a chance to drive Focus ST? How is it compared to GTI? Personally I like Focus RS, I think I would take it over the Golf R but if I were on the market for that kind of car I would need to do extensive test drive before making any conclusions and I haven't driven either,
  3. You said nobody ran Subaru on the 'Ring. That was just recent example but there were a number of them that ran. For example in 2011 production STi set record for a four door at 7:55 http://www.autoguide.com/auto-news/2010/06/2011-subaru-wrx-sti-sets-new-4-door-nurburgring-record-with-755-lap-time-video.html Nevertheless, the car is not measured purely by the 'Ring time. I hope ZR1 is fastest but for now it is just a preview, no reason to have a 10 page argument about something nobody knows for sure yet.

  5. I thought you just turned 39, not 69?
  6. Random Thoughts Thread

    I bought last fall Michelin Premier for my wife's MDX. They are highly rated if not the highest rated all-season tire for crossovers. Found out that even the best all-season tire is not that great in icy conditions we get here in NJ. Great AWD system means nothing without appropriate tires. My friend saw last winter in New Hampshire Jeep almost go into the ditch and struggling getting up the mountain with all-season tires while his Outback with winter tires had no problem at all. I drive RWD car with summer tires and I have a set of rims with winter tires.
  7. Even in base form it is probably one of the most capable off-road vehicles on sale today. It is a niche vehicle that does one thing very well while just so-so everything else. Same thing as Miata (starting at $25.7k), or basic F-150 or Silverado work trucks that are around $28k. I drove rental Wrangler recently while on vacation, it was beat up to death but it is still was a lot of fun.
  8. 2018 Honda Accord 'lot impression'

    I just saw one on the highway yesterday. I kind of like the front, but the side looks very boring to me and I didn't like the rear. Just my first impressions from the exterior.
  9. 27K & 34K "Dream Garage"

    $27k 1. New: Mazda 6 Touring or Subaru Crosstrek Limited if I needed more utility/awd 2. Used: For $27k you can pick up lightly used 2016 Mustang GT premium, I think while not as special as Boss 302 it is actually faster and more livable with. I think Vette for this price will be around 2004 Z06, not sure I waant 15 year old car. $34k 1. New: Subaru WRX premium or Outback 3.6R premium if I needed space or Acura TLX if I needed comfortable daily driver 2. Used: Either nicest C5 Z06 I can find for the money or almost new Mustang GT premium or Chevy SS if I needed a sedan or CTS
  10. The Restomod and Pro-Tour Dream Car Garage Thread

    I always wanted '65 Mustang fastback body restomod with engine, brakes and suspension from the modern GT
  11. It is Subaru - usually their concepts and production models are not even close to each other.
  12. You mean like this? I think Mazda did it much better.
  13. I disagree, they were not. My friend has Montero Sport, great truck
  14. I love it. I think Mazda has one of the, if not the most great looking designs currently on the market.
  15. These were far from crap (unfortunately most of their other product was)
