Re: RE92s

I might wonder the same thing about some trim levels of Saturns.

But anyway, the A2 is a wonderful tire on the Saturn. Probably the best H rated all season tire out there. Currently I am running...

BMW has been slipping lately. The 3 series is now matched by Audi, and their over-teching on the car has lost them quite a few points in most car mags. They drive nicely, but they aren't too user...

Value (price + features), dependability, performance. Fuel economy, insurance, and safety are nothing more than tiebreakers. I don't base my decisions on them, but if two cars were tied in every...

You must have missed their review of the new Honda Civic. The subheading was "Something new from Honda... a mistake." They don't give anybody an automatic pass. They do have their own preferences,...

Exactly. Cost of ownership is not possible to test, especially with a new car. Ditto reliability- they don't test most cars for thousands of miles. They get a few days at most to beat on them. If...

I wouldn't. There have been instances where the synthetic can wash away those carbon buildups, making the engine leak like a sieve. If you are already leaking, synthetic won't stop it. Maybe...

I have no idea how they missed a fully dressed up police cruiser- they had to pull up right past him. Oh well- sometimes it is less a traffic fine than it is a tax on stupidity.

You are correct. If long term dependability showed up in ranking, I highly doubt the Focus would win anything. The reason they don't do this is because dependability is largely anecdotal- you can't...

I use the Craftsman MicroTok wrench- not the electronic one, but better than the beam type (I have the 1/2" drive). It serves me very well, and I am quite pleased with it.

It is the handling that I always see praised, not so much the panel gaps/interior. What I can't figure out is how it scores so highly with those anemic engines despite the handling.

On my old SL2, I think that low hanging thing was the fuel line which dipped just low enough to be visible. Not in danger of being whacked or anything.

I am by no means a professional, but I have never had any problems with Sears Craftsman. I really like their Craftsman Professional hand tools, but in many cases I can't justify the added cost.

That tells me all about the knowledge possessed by average teens regarding automobiles. Pontiac as "refined and upscale"?!? Do they even KNOW the definitions of those words?
