  1. While I really am not a fan of Toyota at all, I will admit that I do kinda like this version of the Camry. I even kinda liked the interior of it. I definitely feel all dirty and ashamed after admitting it. I'm not in love with the interior but its alright. I can't get past that giant, gaping maw this sucker has. Not my style at all. Different strokes for different folks, though. If Paolino is going to get one of 'em, he should at least see if he can find a new '18 on the lot somewhere or get a used one. JMHO.

  4. So I saw an ad for a Fiat 500L Urbana Edition the other day and while I can say it is not my cup of tea at all, it got me thinking about cars I do like that I am at least a little bit ashamed to admit to. I thought it might be a fun and interesting topic. To keep it timely, lets say it has to be a vehicle that was produced within the last 5 years. It does not have to be sold in the U.S. market for you to post it. Here are a few of mine: Fiat 500X Trekking This is the one I was thinking of when I thought of this topic. I'm not sure why and I can't explain it, but I actually like these little buggers. I'm ashamed to admit I actually like it better than its Jeep Renegade sibling. I know it tends to be thought of as somewhat of a "chick" car but I dig it. Chevrolet Sonic Another little runabout that I am a little ashamed to admit that I really like. For this one, though, I am not really sure why I am ashamed. They aren't bad little cars. The current gen is a bit oddly styled I guess. Give me the last versions exterior and the current versions interior and I'd have a winner on my hands. Buick LaCrosse Again, I won't say I am horribly ashamed to admit it, but I am a little ashamed. As a middle aged man, I don't think I am supposed to be drawn to this car until I am 15 years older than I am now and yet here I am really liking this car. I would take it over the Impala. Seriously considered buying one of them last year when they had some huge rebates on them but wound up not pulling the trigger.
  5. This would be interesting. I've never owned a full size truck and never had much interest in one (though the new Ram is nice) but I have had two S10's and two Rangers. Always had a fondness for the compact trucks.
  6. Congrats on the Ram. Chrysler did a heck of a job on that interior! Looks like you should consider changing your name to Mopar Guy.
  7. I wouldn't say no one likes colors. Here is most of what we have had in the last 15 years: Midnight Blue Saturn Ruby Red Saturn Granite Gray Saab Mediterranean Blue Metallic Ford Flex (there may still be a picture of it on here somewhere - very cool teal color) Redline Red Dodge Jazz Blue Chrysler Blue Ray Metallic Chevy True Blue Chrysler White Chrysler Velvet Red Chrysler Radiant Silver Metallic Cadillac As you can see, it is mostly blues and reds. Have never had any problem selling any of them because of the color either. That being said, you sadly are correct that most people don't want colors. My inlaws only buy white vehicles. Doesn't matter what they get, it has to be white. Never really understood it. To me most white vehicles make me think rental or commercial vehicle unless it is a somewhat sporty car.
  8. It's in all those places plus under Apps on the 18 Pacifica
  9. You don't have to go into the climate screen either. Both heated seats as well as heated wheel are directly under the "Apps" icon. If when you go into Apps they are not on the first page, you can drag them and drop them from the first page to the second. In regard to getting back to the Radio screen, why don't you just tap the "Radio" icon on the bottom bar?
  10. I personally am not a fan of silver but when you are getting a good lease deal on a courtesy car, you have to go with the color they have. I generally am not a fan of grey either but I did like the grey that was on my Saab 9-5. Otherwise, give me a nice metallic blue, dark red (like our minivan) or black (the XT4 Sport for example) and I am happy. Pearlescent white looks great as well such as the white diamond tricoat. I do think the silver looks good on the CTS for some reason, though. Also, while not normally a fan of green, I really love the Carageen Green on the Buick Regal. I also really liked the pearlescent orange on a VW Jetta they had a NAIAS.
  11. I'll throw out a quick update on the CTS. It has around 9k miles on it now. It is a very enjoyable car to drive. Plenty quick even with the 2.0 and handles great. I do still get a little sad that I didn't buy a used V Sport instead but overall I can't complain. It is exactly what I expected it to be. I have had two minor problems with it so far: 1) sometimes on start up the radio is muted for unknown reasons. The only way to get it unmuted is to go to the Radio screen and it unmutes without doing anything else. A software update did not fix the issue and it still does it intermittently. 2) We got a "Service vehicle soon" light for maybe 5 days. Did the OnStar diagnostic and there was no issue found. Called the dealer to set up an appointment and they said it was an issue with an OnStar update they pushed to the vehicle and was not an actual problem. It self corrected after those 4-5 days, possibly after a background software update. Other than that, no issues. Lastly, the stock Pirelli run flat tires are pretty poor in the snow. Way worse than the Firestone Firehawks that came on both our Charger RT RWD and 300S RWD. They do okay on packed down stuff but I almost got stuck in an unplowed parking lot with 5" or so of virgin snow. I'm currently looking for a good set of used winter tires and wheels.
  12. I guess since reg gave an update, I should as well. I still love this thing. I don't get the hate for minivans. I now understand why my Dad was so infatuated with them when I was younger. They are just an all around great vehicle. It essentially does everything an SUV/CUV can do but it does it better with the exception of towing. Both of my kids love it and think it is the best vehicle ever. I'd blame that on the entertainment system but we don't let them use it unless we are going to be in the car for more than 30 minutes and even on short trips they would rather take the van than my CTS. That's no knock on the CTS. More of a testament to the van. It now has close to 12,000 miles on it. No issues to speak of. One oil change and other than that, no trips to the dealer. It gets pretty good gas mileage for such a big vehicle. See the attached pic. Note that this is not typical but it can do this in the correct conditions. Having calculated other tanks, I'd say you can knock 1 MPG off what the VIC is showing but still impressive none the less.
  13. You can absolutely do that. You just drag it from the app screen down to the button bar at the bottom or the screen and it will replace whatever you drop it on top of. Here is what the screen on our Pacific currently looks like. We'll dump the heated seat and heated wheel buttons for something else once it warms up.
