I laughed when I read this.  Just confirms why you never want to own a newer Volvo out of warranty. And no wonder BMW owners in general are such douche bags. They suffer from constant gouging from the dealer so they take it out on the rest of the world. Highly tempts me to make the next car a Lexus if I can find an interior that isn't too plasticky.

There are four car makers no longer around on that list. Also, volume (N) counts.  Jeep and Land Rover in the middle?

Riiiggghhhtt .... 

Find the mean and SD and take the number of vehicles out there on the road, totally different results.

 

actually 5

 

Saturn, Mercury, Pontiac, Mitsubishi (Nissan owns them now but with all the emissions stuff I'm going to say they're gone), and Scion

Easy there Kevin...

Nissan owns 1/3 of just Mitsubishi MOTORS. Not all of it.

 

And it was bullshit manipulated fuel economy ratings not emissions..

So it's not "gone" because you think so..

Its a merger so both companies can tap into each others resources.. And become one of the biggest auto manufactures in the world.. (Nissan Renault and Mitsubishi)

Seriously considering buying a Turbonetics t3/to4e super 50 trim .48AR with F1-57 turbine. Basically same exact turbo Jan (jcviggen) had in his 850. I've read that his tune in this video was close to perfection. Betting Aaron can do even better...

Go drive a Lexus....you'll fall asleep. They don't handle or brake good at all

Yeah but the current gen BMW's are not known for being "drivers" cars they have become numb/dull like Audi.

Poor Mitsubishi they were killing it in the 80's and 90's like the rest of the Japanese brands. Then fell off the face of the earth except for the Outlander these days.
They had the 3000GT/GTO, AWD DSM's, Starion Tsi, Evo's, GVR4's, Legnum VR4's.

Does anybody know a way to kill Japanese hops? My neighbor refuses to clean up his yard and now that shit has found its way into my yard. It's all up the back of my garage. We cut it and pull it down but that shit grows like a foot a day.
