Re: Does anyone have a list of 2018 cars w/manual transmissions?

I've ridden in the Forester. I Feel like the seats are really shallow. I'll be honest, I was tempted by the Outback with the automatic. Or even the Legacy. They all have their shortcomings and trade-offs. I’ve heard people complain about the Legacy/Outback seats too, for the lower back support or s...

Trying to get back to basics. eye fought the smart cars were dual clutch only stateside, but not sure. rope might know... as for imprezas, the new ones look promising. if you're talking about older o...

Re: Does anyone have a list of 2018 cars w/manual transmissions?

You can't get the Mitsubishi Lancer with a stick? Not sure why my eye pulled to that car lol :lol: Last time I checked you can't get the Focus hatch with a stick. Unless it was an ST/RS. Only the sedan has the 5 speed offering. I think you can still get the 1.0l with the 6 speed as well. yeah, you ...

Re: 50 Years of Subie-Doo

You don't make anything but the best in anniversary trim. That's how this works. The only color more conservative is grey. That's barely blue at all. totally forgot how easy it is to detect sarcasm over the interwebs :? :oops: https://encrypted-tbn0.gstatic.com/images?q=tbn:ANd9GcT30OF1iJYVBa-OmJbC...

Re: Misc Thread VI: Return of the Threadi

I'm actually kind of interested in the JL. From the brief exposure I have had so far, it has potential. That said, I would not seriously consider buying it until its second or third year in production. I've been burned on a 1st year car (my 2012 Sonic was a flaming dumpster fire of issues and I was...

Re: Misc Thread VI: Return of the Threadi

JK windshields are flat-out not meant to be folded down. I don't care what Jeep has to say. Ive folded dozens to replace bad seals and its been a pain each time. Jeep would have been better off just having a stationary windshield. Hopefully the JL isn't nearly as bad In terms of water leaks that ha...

Re: Misc Thread VI: Return of the Threadi

Wrangler sells against.......mustang! A vehicle people buy to have some fun with, not just for transportation. That's why latest Wrangler was made to be more car-like in how it shifts, how it drives on expressways, wind noise, etc. Previous gens were such that you knew you were not in a car. This g...

Re: Misc Thread VI: Return of the Threadi

I've briefly driven a Tacoma. Their option book with respect to engines, cabs, and beds is better than Colorado's if you want the correct transmission, but that's not saying a lot . Wrangler is a lot of money for what it is. If I could fit into a Tacoma, I'd have bought one. As for Wranglers, they ...
