    Completely agree. I suspect these cars are 'on order' and will show up at the dealership whenever they show up. My local Ford dealership shows a couple of Bronco Sports, with VINs, but if you read...

    You will obviously have to switch out the flywheel for a flex plate, but other than that I can't see any reason this wouldn't be a direct swap. It is my understanding that the engines in the manual...

    It was auctioned on 'Bring a Trailer' a couple weeks ago. Apparently, the original owner was a long-time mpg geek. He bought this car new in 2000, then turned right around and bought a brand new...

    Hey, mods! I hate to gripe, but the emojis here need a LOT of work. They are still called 'smileys' even though it isn't 2006 anymore. :rolleyes:

    Once my gauge has no bars and starts blinking there is usually about a gallon of gas left in the tank. There is also about a half a gallon or so in the filler pipe when you completely refill your...

    Interesting article, but the comments section is about what I expected: "Don't be idiot and buy a new econobox, be a genius like me and buy a CPO Civ-rolla!"

    I have the $100 kit. Ordered it when my second clutch cable snapped and I thought I needed to do a clutch. Looks okay to me, but we know OEM will go 300k!
