    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

    They do have a resemblance to the Explorer, but it's not as bad as I thought.

    i drove the new Explorer a few months ago in Hawaii. surprisingly good. great features, pleasant interior, the best looking explorer ever IMO. nice to drive too, and i ended up throwing the thing through the volcano park passes because we were running late for our flight off the island. held up great

    I believe this is the first Explorer that is no longer based off Ford's truck chassis'. I think it uses an extended Taurus chassis, similar to the one used by the Flex.

    I actually kinda like the new Explorer...but when a RR looks sort of similar...that really dilutes the RR cachet.

    very much so. but with a carseat, and a stroller...maybe not. Especially if i go somewhere and need to take my kid and dog. The only reason a SUV is being considered is because ive always had a hard on for a range rover.

    i like the CTS but not enough to buy one.



    doooode....hell no. used. no way would i pay 40K for a nissan. more like 20K with 50K miles.

    A guy nearby me is a writer for an auto mag, he had the new RR, a white one, looked stunning. He really liked the car a lot. Didn't have the balls to ask to take it for a spin.




    This thread has become a terd.

    You'll love it even more when you return home. Just returned from a trip myself. The drive from home from the airport was glorious.

    I saw a white one before I left yesterday and the one the day before was dark brownish. I liked it better in the dark color but both looked good.

    Yeah no kidding. I don't know why anyone really needs to hear all this boring minutiae. It's a thread about cars, not a dear diary.

    Its time for me to bite the bullet and buy a family car. Whats out there that wont make me hate life? Little weekend trips is all this car will be used for.

    Im thinking the hatch versions of the wrx sti or cts v may be worth looking into.

    Ive owned exactly 2 cars in my life so Im open to about anything. Needs to fit 2 car seats, cargo, and have a bit of performance (Im ditching my 911 for this!)
