    A new Civic is always fun news, IMO.

    Looks to be on the conservative side, but in a good way. As always, the Si and Type R reveals will be interesting.

    I like it a lot. Perfect size, and depending on how they configure the trims, might even get a package available the way I want it. The primary issue I had with the last model was the driver's seat. Even the power version did not fit me right IIRC. But better than the manual seat which was just awful.

    No, it's not but it was principal.

    Yes, we picked it up Sat morning. We left a little before 9 and were back before 3.

    Okay, so two follow-on questions:

    1. Did your wife end up driving the XC90 back?
    2. If so, did she have a huge grin on her face when you arrived home?

    :D
    Yes she did drive it back and I could tell she really enjoyed it. When I pulled in the garage and she pulled up behind I could hear her breaking in the stereo.

    I like the Laser too. For me, it’s missing the one required option... digital dash. Any funky 80s car needs that. What’s up with the crank windows? Spent the money for the pen interior and cheaper out in the windows?

    Looks like they dialed back the overstyling a bit so that's a plus.

    Was at the BMW/Mini store today and saw the perfect Mini Cooper S 2-door. Was dark silver with a white top and white caps on the side view mirrors. Price was like $34,500 but it did have an $8500 package on it with lots of stuff. All I really wanted was a sun/moon roof, SAT radio(a year subscription), and the Harman Kardan audio system. The rest of the package was stuff that I had no interest in. Looks to be a fun vehicle. Even tough I say I want "cheap to keep" next time, that Mini Cooper called out to me just like the VW GTI and the new VW Taos does.

    From what I understand, Minis (being BMWs under the skin) are anything but cheap to keep. An acquaintance recently had her 2013 with 20K miles in for a look at the brakes. $1500 later she was out the door.

    As far as I know the Laser was all Chrysler, platform shared with the Dodge Daytona.

    Are you thinking of the Conquest? That was a re-badged Mitsubishi Starion.

    I’m thinking of the Challenger which was based on the Mitsu Galant. It came before the Daytona-Laser. Later I think they replaced them with a Mitsu Eclipse clone. Chrysler did so much parts sharing back then it’s hard to keep them straight.

    That sounds exactly like a dealer where the SA works on commission. Regardless, the third generation cars with the B37 or B38 three cylinders and the B48 four cylinder have fewer issues than the older models.

    Umm.. no. I put in one accident due to the paint work on the door. That’s probably not even on the CarFax since it was a cash deal with the body shop.

    Either way the offer wasn’t even close. $16,900 with a $2000 hit for the accident. Residual is $27,200.

    It's not that tough; a car that's been hooned is pretty easy to spot. A FSH also tends to ensure the car was properly maintained.

    I know a Mini Cooper will not be "cheap to keep" but hey, I like 'em! Maybe it's their smaller size that attracts me but I'd like one someday. But again, I'd have to see how low they really are as with my spinal issues, anything lower then my current VW will just not work going forward. I showed one to the Mrs. and she thought they were too small yet I'm thinking they're probably the size of the kids Accent. I do think a test drive is in order sometime later next year just to see. They do get pricey just by adding a few goodies but certain goodies I will not compromise on.

    They revived the Laser name in the ‘90’s as the Plymouth Laser, twin not only to the Eclipse but the Eagle Talon.

    My brother and I lusted after those, as I imagine most any enthusiasts did at the time. Thinking about it now, it’s shocking we didn’t end up with one.

    Well, our lone BMW/Mini dealer here is well-known locally for their ability to do total cashectomies on the wallets of customers of their service department. They are almost universally reviled. Interestingly, the original owners were recently bought out by one of the large dealership groups here in town who have a reasonably good reputation, but apparently little has changed there so far.

    Yeah it took a beating and way back of the residual.

    Inspector just finished ... said he would knock at the door if he saw anything he knows they would balk at. Otherwise I just have to wait for the report. I was told to put the keys on the front seat because of Covid. I did just that with both sets, sitting on the owner’s manual pouch.

    It would be something if he left without knocking on the door and you went out later to find just one set of keys on the seat. :laughing:

    I've searched and it seems most owners have had positive experiences with their 500s. Most naysayers don't even own them and are just repeating past biases they have heard.

    @qbrozen ....I know two people who own a 500. Not sure the models, but both love them with none of the unreliability issues we’ve heard with Fiats. Small sample size, but you can always punt it if it becomes anything less than reliable. Looks like fun, too.

    My cousin owned a 500 for a time. She absolutely loved it, and I'm not aware of any reliability issues. She was forced to get rid of it (financial issues) and eventually replaced it with a Kia Soul with a stick shift.

    Did you get a good deal? Be sure to come back and let us know! Post a pic of your new purchase or lease!

    I figured I would throw the Enclave into Carvana to see if I could save the Dispo fee

    Umm.. no. I put in one accident due to the paint work on the door. That’s probably not even on the CarFax since it was a cash deal with the body shop.

    Either way the offer wasn’t even close. $16,900 with a $2000 hit for the accident. Residual is $27,200.

    What was the sticker on that?
    $49XXX
    Dang I’m good!

    Some serious depreciation on those.
