    And ~$1200 for a pulse brake system. Sounds like a heck of an upcharge for ABS, or for the annoying blinking CHMSL I see most often on timidly driven CRVs and the like.

    $1200! My VW dealer charges either $399 or $499 for the same item.

    Even that is overpriced, IMO

    Bet it's for a $5 chip to add to the CHMSL.

    That wouldn't surprise me, at all. The VW dealer where I got my Jetta has changed their business model up, and is now adding gratuitous junk onto every vehicle.

    Not likely to replace the Jetta with another VW, if this keeps up.

    It seems most of the dealers around here are drinking that cool aid. It’s a real turn off.

    Saw a RAV4 today. Much more square shouldered look in the front and probably the size of the original Highlander.

    Got a delivery from Amazon today.
    One side of the box displayed the front of the New Chevy Silverado and the opposite side the back.
    It didn't have that fancy GMC tailgate. ;)

    Was behind a Subaru Ascent. The taillight design doesn't see to fit the body shape, but that's become pretty common.

    Funny. I was going to call it a Kia.

    i do appreciate Audi continuing to apply Ford Blue to their show cars. Lol

    Bright blue Mitsubishi Eclipse cross. Looked ok from the side, but the rear, well, just say unfortunate.

    And definitely should not be called eclipse!

    Tirerack posted a video of a new TTRS in my preferred favorite color for the car (Vegas Yellow) doing hot laps in a new P Zero tire. GRRRR...... and just when I was thinking there was nothing out there enticing me. I thought RS's didn't come in yellow.

    I notice the wonderful timelessly styled new Avalon has sequential front turn signals, cribbing from Audi of the past few years (and Ford in 1967).

    Came across a newish Audi A4 wagon Allroad, first one I've seen.

    Do you recall if it had the label/decal A4 on the back ? I think they are calling them A4 on the left and Allroad's on the right now.

    Yep, A4 on the left, Allroad on the right.

    Saw 2 new RAV4s in traffic today, faux floating C pillar, so cool and dynamic, definitely not an AWD toaster.
  • explorerx4explorerx4 Central CTPosts: 13,390
    I read a review about the new RAV4. It said the it and the current Escape have the same wheelbase and RVA4 has a couple of cubes more interior space. I was surprised they are that close considering the Escape is one of the smaller entries in that class.

    I told my Mom if she even thinks about getting another Toyota I'm not doing the deal for her. I was once such a Yota fan but I can't warm up to anything they have put out since the 05+ Avalon.

    I find nothing really to like about her current 2017 RAV.

    I’m curious to see he new RAV in person at the car show.

    The styling is tough to take. At least the Camry drives better, or so I've heard. My mom will have had her Camry for 10 years in May, no real issues with the car, no plans to replace it. But if she wanted another Camry, I wouldn't protest.

    Honda and Toyota just seem often very efficient at space utilization. Kind of ironic that the new CRV appears to be quieter than the new Rav4 since Honda used to trend more sporty and Toyota more GM smooth.
  • texasestexases Posts: 8,692
    I've heard lots of positives about the drive/ride of the new (2019) Rav4. Looks are a little on the 'trying to be tough' side, but not goofy, like other new Toyotas.

    Philly show starts tomorrow. I’m going next weekend. Only surprise is BMW pulled out, though after ditching Detroit, not too surprised.

    Pretty sure we are going Sat the 9th early 

    I fly out the next day for a show, so unless I take a day off this week it’s my only shot.  Can’t do it this weekend
