    Ford was clearing the Canadian pipeline. I got my copy of the Toronto Sun at about 8am and when I finally got through to Tower Ford on the phone (I think it was Tower) a little after 8:30AM ALL...

    Thanks. I really the wine red but I must admit the Sapphire blue is my personal favorite. I've only seen 1 while driving, but several white/black/gray green and surprisingly quite a few pink, which...
  3. Used 2011 Ranger, loaded, low kms. $16,950

    Considering Ford priced the final production of 2011 Rangers, completely loaded BTW, @$11,750 seeing a used one nearly 10 years later and $5,000 over the factory invoice is dumbfounding.

    I wish I...

    I got my Dad's, uh, I don't know the model but it was a small 2004 SUV thing, V6, with about 80Kms on it, Tuscon, maybe? This was in 2013 when Dad died, so it was only 9 years old. My Dad was good at...

    The difference between the CVT and 5mt @65mph is astronomical. What was Mitsu thinking? All 5mt drivers would always be driving around with 4 250lb. adults and luggage?

    As the temps drop the density of gas increases and suddenly you get more in a gallon @-15F than at +15C.
