So the average new car price is about 33k, what would you buy . . .

Just saying, I'd buy a new 2017 Tacoma SR5 4wd, Access Cab, V6, Manual 6 speed transmission. I am all for the manual on the new Tacoma, because my old man ordered that exact truck but 2wd with the...

Dealer or private seller???

Really the history of the car would be what I buy it based on. Documented services records, generally very clean inside and out, buy it. Also I'd look at number of...

That's the thing people don't realize about Corvettes, is if you can get over it being 2 seats, it is a very practical car. Lots of luggage room, lots room for the 6'+ guys, lots of room for the...

The knock could be carbon buildup in the engine. Read about it in the IS forum, the 250 cars with the smaller engine are notorious for it, especially an early year like your 2006. There are several...

That was my point earlier, those entry level $199 a month lease special BMW, Benz, and Audi A3 are pretty crap car cars IMO. You need to spend 40-45k minimum to get into a decent German luxury car...

I think it will sell if VW prices it right and doesn't make it too complicated/unreliable like the Toureg.

The Toureg, that thing was hideously overpriced, like just as much as a BMW X5. That...

Out of those choices, I'd go with the 2000-04 Avalon. Rock solid reliable, TONS of room(one of the roomiest sedans you can buy and why I pick it over the ES300), fully depreciated so you can score a...

Lexus corporate is comparing the NX to vehicles that cost about the same, that would be my guess as to why they are comparing it to German SUV's that are smaller.

That's a complaint I've had against Cadillac cars since they introduced the CUE infotainment system. Apparently at GM, the busier you make things look, the more luxury it looks.

Sounds decent for a V6, better than the race car version since they were able to fiddle with the mufflers to make it sound better. Still think Ford screwed the pooch by not putting a V8 in this car...
