Yeah, some of their performance discussions are moronic (i.e. the government should regulate horsepower)... But I still listen for amusement.

i Still love their review of the original 2.5RS:
"This car is too fast, and too stupid. It's unconscionable, unethical and immoral to make a car like this, in our humble opinion. Besides: what, pray tell, is the rationale behind having a souped up Subaru? Isn't that somewhat oxymoronic? "

but its like a car accident... even though its horrible and disgusting I have to look.

I am assuming you just watched a comercial and were brainwashed into thinking that slammed pickup truck was anything more than a testosterone wagon ready to bring the beers to the next Super Bowl party, and get some attention doing it.

It has high school football star written all over it, thats fine and dandy, but its performance figures reflect what it is. A heavy boxy retro trashy feel good... I dont know now I am just complaining

The PT Cruiser, the 300, and that 300 wagon reflect Americans current ideas on cars. We want to look good, and feel good, but thats about it.

My beef with the 300 and the Magnum is that the whole media bases their reviews of the whole model line on one powertrain... the 5.7L V8.

Look at the base models... even w/ 250 HP from the larger V6 (nevermind the paltry 190 from the base V6), the car is still equal or even underwhelming vs. the competition. Until you pony up for the top model, outside of the styling, the car is nothing special in comparison to its competition. The imports still have it beat on interior quality and fit & finish. Wait... I forgot, it's RWD and that forgives all sins in material quality on the inside

That's my idea on the differnce between a good car and a great car. Good cars have one trim level that's great... great cars are good from the base model to the top one.

I say there H2 doesn't look that bad seen one in person looks fine even the avalanche, that is just a bad picture - they dont look that bad, but the Aztek and the XB are in a class of their own, Tribeca really isnt' that bad


I thought 300 looked nice

I think the new lancer is ugly though.

Ok, the Tribeca isn't that ugly. Just a little awkward in the front. And it's not TriBeCa....

That site can DIAF.
