Our predecessors rode around on horses and wagons. We ride around on mostly oil based propulsion. Who knows what's next. Perhaps back to horses. Right now electric based vehicles are on par with the...

Kowbra, my name is posted above as saying shaking my head buying extended warranties... I didn't write that. I just didn't want to be misquoted.

I also get tempted to get a new one at about the 4 year mark. I thought when they passed 1000 ft/lb torque that would be the time, still resisting. Then while at the dealer fixing recall number 8 or...

My experience is with the durability of materials used. All new trucks show well on the showroom floor. Initial quality of say a year or less isn't bad for all three. I tend to keep my vehicles for...

My concerns do not lie with the looks of an interior. A higher level of options does not change the basics of the truck. I have a Ram and a Jeep. These vehicles are related and have similar issues...

Hey don't take it personal. Besides, Ive seen you dish it out a time or two. I'm good with whatever folks want for their rig. The IS probably does some good and glad you like it. :thumbsup:

Yes, I've had the sink cover pop out. That's CA roads for you. There is a $7k fix for that but I just stow the cover beneath the sink instead. We have a ceiling fan in the rear with two chains that...
