    Rented a 2017 Hemi Charger R/T in Detroit

    I love this car. The challengers too. The 2015+ refinements are very nice interior wise. I also love the charger's exterior look. Favorite looking sedan out there right now. Great highway cruisers with pretty much all the power train options you could want available to you.

    Rented a 2017 Mustang Ecoboost for vacation.

    I should have been more clear, sorry about that. I had no problem with the actual seats and how comfortable they were. Never been too picky with that stuff, they were fine. We did two 250+ mile trips and that's where I noticed how small and confined it felt in the vehicle. That was what made...

    Rented a 2017 Mustang Ecoboost for vacation.

    We went through enterprise. We didn't plan on this vehicle. But the airport enterprise had so many exotics and convertibles we asked about an upgrade. I didn't even know it was the 4cyl until we drove off the Lot with it. $73 a day was the charge.

    Rented a 2017 Mustang Ecoboost for vacation.

    I had the car for 7 days and put about 800 miles on it. Thought I'd share some of my thoughts since driving it. Pros: Looks: The car looks sharp. I had mixed feelings when the 2015 debuted. The styling won me over. There might be a lot of them on the road, but it looks good in my opinion...

    Trying to teach someone to drive stick...

    Great advice. The dimmable light switch is a really good concept! Definitely something I was trying to explain to him, I feel this idea works well. And +1 to the BMW over the Echo. That's why I thought the Camaro would be a nice learning vehicle. Lots of torque which really gets your head...

    Trying to teach someone to drive stick...

    Just to start off, I am 31 years old. My first vehicle was a 1986 Corolla with a manual transmission. So for the past 15-16 years I have been driving stick. I remember my dad trying to teach me and it was frustrating and nerve racking for both of us. Everyone learns differently over the years...

    2016 WRX, Been at Dealer 3 Months

    I understand the logic to just drive it until something breaks since it's under warranty, but like you said it's a brand new car with 7k on it. Right off the bat I wouldn't feel happy or comfortable with a new car left in the shop for so long while still paying for it. This is a scenario where...

    Model Year 2010+ Trouble Free Vehicles?

    Just need to sort through your options. My checklist would be: 1. An engine/trans combo that's been around a while and is known to have no known issues 2. A make that is known for being reliable and also easy for DIY repairs 3. As little options as possible without sacrificing what I want...

    Ford focus 2009-2013 maybe getting

    I'd go 2012+ for the updated chassis. Ford finally brought over the focus global platform with this one and it's very nice for the price. But I too would opt for the manual trans over the DCT. I haven't heard anything too positive about that transmission... Well, ever.

    Mazda3 iTouring vs. Hyundai Elantra GT

    I remember reading how the GT is actually quite a different car than the standard sedan and coupe Elantra, but this was a couple years back. I would poke around on some Hyundai specific forums for more info on the GT. My close friend has a 2014 Elantra GT and I was impressed with the vehicle...
