That's not really why I'm interested in the GX though. I mean, do I think I might do some rough roads in Baja with it? Winter in Canada? Sure. Other than that its main two draws for me would be Lexus/Toyota vehicle lifespan and also the lifespan of the design cycle. I want to go into retirement with such a vehicle.
I’m aware. Just test drive one to figure out if you like the way they drive. Like I said, fancy suspension and gadgetry have come a long way.

Chrysler product is not in our future, particularly for a purchase.

Chrysler only sells cars minivans because the Honda Odyssey or Toyota Sienna are OOS when someone is looking for one.

Anyone have any experience with the late run c215 Mercedes coupes? A really low mileage ‘06 CL500 popped up at a nearby dealer with a clean service/ownership record and I’m tempted. It would be nice to pick up something like this and it wouldn’t be a daily driver. The 500 platform and later production date are heartening as I know some of the early models and 12 cylinder variants are fraught with bugs but any input from the forum would be appreciated.
I wouldn't touch one of those regardless of whether it was a V8 or V12. The early 2000s were really a low point in quality for MB, lots of issues, and big repair bills. It's generally why even with 6 figure original MSRPs they usually sell for a very little.

Also, we all know you aren’t qualified to be a greeter.
He's already got one side gig.



PS: That's what a Norwegian doing a Scottish accent sounds like. 🤨

I worked at their only minivan plant back in the late 80s/early 90s.

up close and personal while they were shooting this commercial on the reservoir down below my house in Colorado. As an aside, the largest log home in North America (may the world) is being built there too (160,000 sq ft). If it ever gets finished that is.

Oceans full of unawareness here.


I think the consensus on the Reddit thread I saw was that this woman’s content is all intentional rage bait/satire.

Bait people into engagement with terrible takes and let the algorithm spread you around.

Stuff like saying the bollard is 2’ tall or calling it a handlebar is just an invitation for someone to comment and correct you which boosts the post even more.

Saw my first cybertruck in person today.

What a ridiculous thing.

I still think there’s a cool look to them but the scale feels ridiculous in person. They should be like .75x size and it might be a fun novelty vehicle like a delorean, but the real thing sucks.
