    As far as I can remember, definitely subject to scrutiny, the Outback has always been a lifted wagon,
    Subaru concurrently had a wagon version of the Legacy.

    In 2010, the Outback's greenhouse got ~4 inches taller. Wheelbase grew almost 3 inches but overall length reduced by about 1 inch. IMHO a quantum leap into SUV-land.

    Punch to report. 2021 Toyota Venza Limited replaced the 2014 BMW 535d.

    BTW, I was able to see how to edit my profile. But after changing it on the page, then it said I didn't have permission to change it. Is this a moderator only step?

    Congrats on the Venza! What color? Did your BMW have any problems? Aging issues?

    Venza is "Coastal Gray" which is blueish in some light. Interior is "Boulder", which is light gray.
    The 2014 BMW 535d was CPO and we bought extended warranty that ran out. It was a great riding car, but it was in the shop a lot. Not a huge PITA because we always got a loaner. BMW replaced a lot of parts and we lost confidence in it. It threw a lot of CELs and the lead time for service became weeks out. One time it was in the shop for 3 weeks while they replaced the whole fuel system. I looked over our service records, and it was in the shop for warranty/covered repairs items about 14 times while we owned it for just over 5 years.

    Good luck with the Venza. After owning a troublesome car you deserve it. You paid your dues.

    As for the old BMW, if the factory didn’t authorize the whole system change out BMW has to be furious with that dealers service department for throwing darts trying to solve the problem. You’d think a dart would land in the right spot after a few tries but some service departments must be downright unlucky or bad.

    My understanding is those diesels also go through a midlife teething phase and then smooth out in terms of issues. But probably not an engine I’d gamble on.

    I can do without any type of mid-life crisis. Pass.

    Ford pickup model size comparison.

    Nice chart, but wish they would add width. That’s probably more important than length in terms of Parking and fitting in the garage doors!

    The new Maverick is 72.6 inches wide, and so should fit into even a narrow garage.

    I think I have mentioned that patience is not one of my virtues. Today in my weekly Jeep Chat status check I was given the same old ‘gathering the parts and materials’ answer so I asked that my case be escalated.

    Will it do any good? Probably not but I will take my hollow victory as it at least made me feel better.

    Oh and as if I needed another reminder that I married well, I pointed out a Wrangler in our color to my wife the other night. She liked it and wanted to know if ours will ‘sit up high like that one’. So yeah, she wants a small lift and bigger tires.

    Of course that will probably change when she sees the cost!

    Thanks. I’ve looked it up before but don’t remember details. That is a manageable size. Ranger IIRC is maybe 75” wide? Just thought it would be handy if Ford did a front view also showing width.

    I go back and forth. The turbo AWD is more traditional truck, right down to poor MPG. the hybrid though, seems like a neat option. I guess it depends on what you really need.

    In terms of mpg and adequate acceleration I'm sure the hybrid Maverick will be fine. But I think it would be nice to be able to have fun, as well as feel more confident when driving in the snow.

    Not sure any model will really be “fun” on road. But the FWD still has good ground clearance and tires so should be better than most FWD cars in snow.

    2 DOORS are in fact, lighter than 4 doors, no matter how big the 2 doors are, 4 doors will be heavier because they are never twice as heavy.

    Wouldn’t it depend on what the doors were made of? Carbon fiber over aluminum 4 doors vs steel 2 door for instance. We are painting with a broad brush. :)

    SUV vs CUV seems pedantic to me. And why would marketers like me? It was definitely NOT a good thing when the Outback stopped being a wagon. When I got the RDX I was settling, as wagons at my preferred age/mileage/price point were near impossible to find.

    The Venza most closely resembles Edge/Murano/Outback.

    I said they'd like you because they want you to call them SUVs. Wagons are taboo to them. You can obviously call it whatever you want. But that means I can, too. As I said, it is close in height to a wagon. Even if by cargo space, the Venza as 55 cu ft. The V60 has 51 and the Murano 65-67. So I exercise my right to classify it as a wagon.

    Funny, when we traded in the CX-7 for the Outback, the wife specifically wanted a "wagon". At the time, the only choices were the Outback and the XC90 (which was about $15K more expensive).

    The test drive of the Outback, to me, didn't reveal a lot of difference between the Mazda and the Subaru, in terms of ride height and visibility.

    Got a call from the Volvo dealership this morning to let me know there was an error in the sales tax collected.

    When I traded the Leaf, they were up-front that was no sales tax credit for the trade since it was leased. I was aware of that and did notice a credit had been applied to the city sales tax (but not the other taxes). I didn't say anything, since I figured it was all done by their system.

    But it was rejected by the DMV for title processing due to the tax collection error, and the finance manager had to call me and give me the unfortunate news that I owed another $851 in taxes. That didn't surprise me in the least, so I think he was pleased at my reaction and prompt payment.

    Makes me wonder though...I have definitely received the sales tax credit for a trade that was leased in the past...most recently with the V90 we traded last year. It must be the dealership is processing the trade in a different manner and hopes to not get audited?

    It’s a lease. Go with the standard windshield.

    Volvo replacement is $1100. I went through insurance but only have a $50 deductible for glass. They are coming tomorrow to do it.

    Just to be sure the $700 includes the calibration? That was almost $400 of the $1100 on the quote

    Well, @28firefighter , it depends on how lucky you feel. A rock cracked the first windshield in a couple of months and you are paying out of pocket. If it happens again it will be another $700 OOP. An extra $300 seems like cheap insurance to me…

    So, I spoke to another shop and he says his supplier has an OEM Mopar Gorilla Glass windshield that he can do for $450 installed based on my VIN. That seems low but he his calling them and verifying his schedule this week and will call me back EOD.

    FWIW, I did not get advanced safety package on mine (adaptive cruise, etc.) and means I have no calibration.

    Just recently started offering it on Jeep wranglers. It caused a delay if you ordered it with gorilla glass.

    I believe it is a protective layer over the regular glass just like phones - that was my take looking at the Corning gorilla glass website

    One nuance -I believe there is a layer under the front glass - part of the acoustic interlayer - where the gorilla glass liner goes. Supposedly stops chips from turning into cracks. Can't imagine why they'd be concerned with that...

    If I’m reading this right Jeep can install better glass but wants more money to do it. It’s pretty damn bad when an owner can’t expect their windshield to last the life of their cars. They did back in my earlier days. Maybe with all this higher horsepower that today’s cars have, bigger rocks are being hurled around.

    Hold on folks, if this is a profit center for Jeep the other manufacturers are sure to follow.

    we'll see what the answer is, but I can guarantee you it is not cut and dry. By ratio only, a Suburban would be more wagon-like than a CTS "saloon," for example.

    I had my college roommate take out all four of mine also. He was at the U. of Miami doing his last year to become an oral surgeon so he had me come down to the clinic and pulled all four out. I got sick from the pain meds but once he changed those, I was feeling much better. Took off a week and only ate mashed potatoes for every meal as I couldn't chew. My mother-in-law stayed with us to take care of me and made sure I ate those mashed potatoes.
    Didn't cost us a dime as the work was done in their clinic and I was practice for him. He was/is extremely intelligent so knew I'd be in great hands! Wasn't a good couple of weeks and I lost a good 10 pounds but by week two, was feeling well enough to go back to work. Soft foods only for almost a month though.

    I just wish I could "latch" the regen setting - I literally use it all the time.
