Good luck using a tricycle in all conditions at all times. But seems like there already is a ready-made alternative made by Ford of Europe which is quite popular.

Is there anything wrong with an...

Ok. That's a good sign in a strange way. You may have an issue with the charcoal canister instead. Gasoline fumes are another category of problem. Could be something very minor or just an indication...

Yeah the Acura is a roomier car because of the fwd platform and it's a nice car. I considered one myself. The IS300 is the sportier option but it's not going to be roomy. You would have to think...

Are you smelling any consistent sulpher smell during driving? Not an intermittent one but a constant smell? Next step, get a live scan on an obdII reader and see what the readings tell you.

I would never call a Lexus suspension, "poorly engineered", per se. I would just call it a compromise. I know that my GS430 seems to sail over rough pavement with a few thumps and such, but it is...

It is true that the Lexus suspension is definitely going to cause more long term problems than your Chrysler. But the thing to remember is that the minivan's suspension was designed for simplicity...

Can't blame you for the expenses you've had to rack up. You have the GS400 and IIRC, that generation is prone to more suspension problems. Did Lexus change the ball joints to lower the stress on the...

I would say that's one case and while it can be alarming to see because you don't know how fast that driver pushes the car, you don't necessarily know how many drivers do that. In fact one summer...

Well good news so I thought I'd follow up with this thread. Turned out that the local Toyota dealership was quite helpful and cut my Ebay key blank for me for $36CAD. I had sort of avoided them...

I sure hope that no Monaro/GTO owner decides to crash their car and be in need of a door panel. What is likely going to be needed is attention to that rip-roaring LS1 Corvette engine. And that is no...

As mmarshall said, they could have rebadged the Equinox or Terrain platforms to recover any lost sales from Buick loyalists instead of importing what is a made-in-China, sell-in-China vehicle.

Ooh, ouch. $100-200 is a little too rich for me. The problem with 1010 keys is that he's selling in USD (39.99 latest price) and that means by the time I order his key blank and get it cut, I'm at...
