    Getting 4.5 L / 100 km's earlier today going around 110 kms an hour, around 57 miles an hour.

    That's like 52 Miles a gallon. Better MPGs than advertised. That's okay with me. My Mirage has been...

    Yes I see more people slowing down lately for sure. I like to think my Mirage is a walking advertisement for common sense. The worst is the 1 occupant V8 SUVs. I think to myself, they still make...

    I think rust will get ya before anything mechanical fails, presuming you drive fairly reasonably etc. People think I'm a broken record about this but I have found Krown rust control yearly...

    I'm bad for scarfing down McDonalds on the way home. Takes some aerobics.

    It's the side order of mayonnaise for my fries that really adds to the difficulty. It's just heaven on earth compared to...

    Americans don't like driving manuals, except probably those people who buy Miatas, and other cars like that. Not sure why. I betcha Corvette Stingrays from the 1960s were mostly automatics too....

    I would think twice before buying a new car from that dealership, if that's the way they treat a repeat customer, with a good used car. Any car that has been used properly will have a few parking lot...

    Why is there no armrest for the front passenger seat? No vanity mirror either presumably, and now no armrest for the passenger. Mitsubishi knows how to cheap out on the details lo.

    By the way I...

    Gas in Wisconsin is 1/2 off the price in Ontario. Gas being @ $2.06/L, and using the conversion numbers you gave there, I'm paying about $8.20 a gallon. $3.99 has a nicer ring to it!

    I wonder...

    As an engineer, you must use metric, no?

    At least for some stuff? Gets hard to divide 13/16th's when you're using microscopes and other scientific equipment. If you live in Canada near the...

    I paid $2.06/L yesterday in the town of Petrolia. Town's named after oil, they still pump oil out of the ground there, and the town stinks.

    Agreed, maybe calling it a Taurus would have been more accurate. I had one drive by me the other day and the Mach E makes a kind of "whooshing" sound. Motor(s?) not silent, but definitely not noisy. ...

    Lol I just would want a manual if I owned a Shelby Cobra Mustang, that one had the automatic with the round dial gear shifter. I find those shifters shifty sorry.

    I think you're right that that Ingersoll car plant produced all those Sidekicks, Metro's, Geos etc. They're suppose to stop making the Equinox next year there and start building something electric.
