    I've seen several here in TX. Our plumber has one. I peeked inside, tons of room. He said he's getting 28 mpg.

    A friend bought one, saw it then another one on the street. Handsome little cute ute.

    Also saw a new XC60, another looker.

    Two best looking ones in that class, IMHO.

    I'm actually crosshopping the XC60 and the Infiniti EX35. Drove both of them a few times and liked each of them for various attributes. Leaning more towards the XC Turbo but I'm waiting a few months to see how reliability shakes out before buying.

    Is the cargo room in the EX as poor as the reviews say? I like the car, but wonder how tight it is.

    15 Leaf / 08 RDX

  • anythngbutgmanythngbutgm Posts: 4,182
    Oh ya, it's small. As are the rear seats. But my wife and I don't have any kiddies so rear seat space isn't a factor really. We'll more than likely use the cargo area with the seats folded than we would driving around passengers.

    The thing that really draws us to it is the amazing powertrain and the tech features. Plus, here in New England they are offering 6000 - 6900.00 off MSRP.

    They're terrible sellers, but they're perfectly kept secrets to those who are more about performance than utility. :D

    pretty much just a raised up AWD G35 hatchback. But, with the seats down, plenty of room for stuff.

    Was behind a brand new Grand Cherokee yesterday. Black, Limited.

    Sharp!!!

    ...silver Camaro on Robbins Avenue near Lawndale in NE Philly. Looked like a V-6 model.

    Haven't seen one in the flesh (besides auto shows) but it gets my Most Improved Player award for 2010.

    Saw a silver Ferrari California this morning, top down.

    Saw a Genesis yesterday...still an obscure sighting around here.

    GT

    Still not sure how I feel about it... First time I've seen one outside of the showroom... It's definitely different..

    on i287 in NJ.

    think it was the racey version of whatever they call the the hardtop version. Exige?

    had a big wing on the back. Maybe that was aftermarket?

    "had a big wing on the back. Maybe that was aftermarket? "

    I think they come that way:

    that was it. In black though. And that wing looks like something you pick up at Pep Boys for you '82 Escort.

    While stuck in holiday traffic on Friday, I found myself behind a grey Lancia Delta Integrale. First one I had ever seen stateside, and it did not disappoint.

    Saw a BMW GT as well yesterday. Kinda blocky looking, not too bad, but not handsome in a BMW way. My wife thought it was an "ugly looking BMW".

    I've seen a couple running around Vancouver since import rules are pretty lax (15 years old or older vehicles ok).

    I could get past the styling if necessary. What I can't get past is the thing weighing 2.5 tons. That's just wrong!

    Also, the day before viewing the XJ, this was at the carwash I took my volvo to.

    Dark silver MB SLS AMG just drove down my street...downhill...engine braking...

    ...black Dodge Challenger R/T Hemi this morning going north at Napfle Street and Verree Road in NE Philly.
  • fintailfintail Posts: 34,357
    Just saw a new style A4. Nothing unusual in that...except the color, which to my eyes was a light brown. Brown is coming back, slowly but surely.
  • ateixeiraateixeira Posts: 72,587
    How about a Volkswagon Saveiro-based HEARSE!

    People are DYING to get in to VWs here in Brazil, literally! :D

    Hysterical.

    They also sell Amaroks, but I have yet to see one in the flesh.

    Citroens are all over. Renault and Peugoets also. Plus Fiats. No 500s yet, though.

    Funny, lots of cars that do exist in the US have different names:

    Elantra Touring = i30
    Nissan Versa = Tiida

    etc.

    To be fair it was still in a dealership.

    Anyone else have a wife/significant other roll their eyes when you visit a forgein country and ask to stop at a car dealership? LOL
