  1. I’ve owned a total of 4 Hyundai’s still have a 13 year old Elantra GT and a 7 year old Genesis no complaints. Thought I was going to buy my fifth with a Sonata. Got a Camry cheaper, go figure. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  2. Thank goodness for the imports in the mid 70s and on. That showed the American auto manufacturers quality still mattered. I can remember as an example one 74 nova that I owned. It was garage kept only sunny day driving my non working wife drove. At 60K miles I had to replace the radiator, gas tank, and exhaust. Surface rust started to appear on the roof. Can’t imagine what would have happened if I drove it in the rain. At the same time I had a Toyota pickup that got the snow, salt, dirt roads from my job no rust. Quality slowly improved, not there yet in most cases. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  3. I had a 94 Z28 and a 99 F-150 use a quart every 2500 miles from new. I sold the Z 7 years later with 130K still using the same amount. The Ford at 20K miles I added a Vortec S/C. Three years at 120K I traded in still use the same amount even with 5lbs of boost. Both manufacturers said the were in acceptable limits. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  4. The masses care about HP. In most ads HP ratings and performance is near the top in mentioned ads. People don’t realize adding gears in the transmission does just as much as HP as far as performance. I’d rather see a smaller V8 turbo than cylinder deactivation. I never thought I see the day where a reg truck could do 0-60 in 5 seconds. Same with the performance of 4-6cylinders while getting the fuel mileage they do. All the mods I did in the 80-2000s I never thought I would say good enough like I do today. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  5. This is fun and all, the trick to getting a good deal is being flexible. When I bought my last truck I worked 4 dealers and different brands. I ended up with my 14 GMC Texas Edition for 27K on 12/31/13. The date made a difference too. The last car I bought 8 months ago was a Camry, 17K new with 5 year 80K mile warranty 2 years free maintenance. They had too many left and a new design was coming. I trade about every two years so I had to learn the game. There’s not really too many hard fast rules, timing and flexibility gets good deals. If you keep them a long time, buy exactly what you want don’t sweat it. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  6. Hmmmm, maybe they’ll wise up before it’s to late. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  7. I test drove a Honda, Camry, VW, Sonata. All were loaded the same felt close to the same. Read the reviews on all and Honda had the best reviews, even the entry level Honda. I’m surprised at the negative towards the Honda all the reviews I’ve read put them at the top. I bought the Camry based on price at the time,find it to be well worth the money. It was just under the Honda according to the reviews. The only I didn’t like about the Honda was the CVT transmission. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  8. Intake sound is intake sound. 6,8 dual quad, 6 pack the same. The loudness is the difference, your just pulling in air. Exhaust another story. That’s in the ear of the beholder. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  9. Well, I did it. I defected....

    Ha Ha, that’s good. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  10. It’s not unusual for a dealer to swap wheels. They probably (forgot) to check calibration. He may be able to check the sticker to see what wheel should have been on the truck. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Checking the net, Ram 1500 has more repeat buyers than GM or Ford. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  12. It seems the answer is to buy within your trucks capabilities. There’s plenty of light weights to choose from. I’m in the fifth wheel camp myself and have seen half tons with those. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  13. When we decided to go full-size, the wife really, we ended up with a 2011 Genesis. We still have and it still has bumper to bumper warranty. They have now priced themselves out of my consideration. I recently bought a Camry, it’s not as large as the Genesis it doesn’t feel too small. In comparison, It’s hard to find a bad car. I test drove all the mid sized before I bought the Camry, and at the time was the cheapest. Like you I found the larger size cars tend to be a few thousand more. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  14. Seems unfair if you can’t see. Thank you for clarification. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
