    Whlie a Mopar fan, the new 'Charger' is too freaking butthole UGLY, has a FAKE Hemi, 4 doors and is a foreign car (made in Canada). I'd probably get a Mustang or a Dodge 3500.

    Every car is a foreign car anymore.

    Technically they go buy where a car is assambled when deciding where it is built. A big chunk of cars are made out of the states but there is a lot of little companies here in the states that make parts for cars. All of the big three as well as Toyota and Honda operate this way. The window sticker states where a car is assembled and sometimes will give a % of where the parts are sourced from.

    With gas at 3.25 a gal and climbing I parked my 02 Yukon XL 8 liter and bought a new Chevy Colorado with a 4 cyl and 5 speed, it'll be a whole nother world.

    Our company went from using full sized Chevy vans and a few pickups, to Astro Vans, to HHRs. One is with windows the other without. They are both POS's! The panel version has the worst visibility ever! I back up with mirrors all the time, even with a car but that panel version HHR is the pits! I feel like I am driving a cave on wheels. :mad:
  6. I'm not trying to hijack this thread but I'm in the market for a new daily driver. I'm needing a vehicle with good gas mileage to drive back and forth to work, but that is still fun to drive. I really like the Mini Cooper S, but I can't decide if...

    1. I'm secure enough in my manhood to drive it...


    2. It's just too gay.

    Any thoughts?

    My daily drivers of choice are big Fords. Wifes on her third Town Car, 1997 Jack Nicholas edition, bought for $6,600 with 70K on the clock. I have a 92 Grand Marque that has 72K on it, bought for under $2000.

    If I had to by a new vehicle it would be a truck, but my old '78 F150 is still running pretty well...

    To cover eithr point, get the S model (factory huffer, or turboed now I hear) and as long as it's not pink you should be golden. A friend had one that, wasn't the S but had the suspension upgrade, drove like a roller skate, decent power, plenty of room (I'm 6'3").

    You might like the 1.8T VW GTI. It's got plenty of scoot, and in my '04 Jetta wagon (little bigger, heavier) gets about 33/34 mpg.
  11. I would replace my 05 GMC 2500 HD duramax with the newer model. Can't beat 8,000 lbs and 19.5 mpg. Just the damn diesel prices suck. Getting screwed as usual.

    Or you could get the TDI, they cost tome more, but up here they are sold before they show up, and resale, they never make it to the paper (or Craigslist either) before theyre sold. Turbo Diesel so, power and economy (torque anyway, for what it is).

    I'd buy another Jeep wagon, 4WD I can hull shit in it, can tow with it, cleaned up it still looks sorta presentable.

    I dont think there is a real new car I would buy,none that I can afford anyway. Just the emission inspections will keep me in a 96 or older car from now on unless I win the lottery! But a new Ford GT would be cool.

    If you can't back up a HHR panel with 3 mirrors safely I'd say its time for a driver refresher course. I think its a great "sedan Delivery" and yes you have to use the mirrors like every other model every made, If you don't like its limitations don't get into a motorhome...

    I have an 06 accord with the V6 and 6 speed transmission, It's a clean car and it beats ALL the camaros at my school

    If i had to buy something else though i think i would get an M3 or a 350z or maybe a tacoma x-runner
  17. Last year bought an 08 Ranger and last week bought the wife an 09 Expedition

    Our daily is a 2007 Z71 GMC 4 door pickup with all of the options---great vehicle and good for hauling and towing and rides very nice-had a 2002 like it for work and ran it hard for 190000 miles with zero problems
