    Stick with MT-90 or switch to Mobil 1 gear oil?

    I had Mobil 1 75w-90 in the Aisin box in my Jeep and it shifted just as well as it does with the MT-90 that's in there now. The only reason I changed it is because I heard that for my MY transmission, you shouldn't use GL-5 fluid. It's still pretty rough, but I don't think the stock fluid was...

    G6 or ford fusion?

    I loved the G6 when it was new, but the new Fusion looks quite awesome. I've yet to sit in one let alone drive one, but from all the shots I've seen I think I would love it. It might be second hybrid I'd actually consider. The only other was the old Honda Insight. Probably the only modern...

    Red Line has made me angry!

    Can't imagine why you'd be using Red Line if you're "frugal".

    New GM Camry Accord fighter?

    I spotted an Opel dealer last time I was in Germany and decided to go in and have a look at the Insignia. It's a gorgeous car and I think will make an excellent addition to the Buick lineup. Of all the cars GM has brought over from overseas, the Insignia is one of the best! I hope that it...

    2010 Toyota 4Runner

    'Grasping For Salvation'

    If there is anyone I'm going to shed a tear for, it certainly isn't Toyota and the protectionist government they have working for them. Dear Toyota: Get Bent.
