Although not specifically listed here, the Explorers also have a known issue with breaking toe links, I have seen it myself first-hand.
When one breaks, it'll cause a rear wheel to turn sharply toe-in.

The more I see the more I love. GM let Cadillac go all out on this thing.

Stylistically:

"Son, that ain't no kid! That's a cocktail waitress in a Dolly Parton wig!"
"I know, ain't she cool? That's the kind I dig!"


Details:

I cringed every time they zoomed in on that hood/fender gap line above the driver-side headlight. It pinched in worse than my 2001 Honda that just had a tree fall on the fender.

Didn't anyone think to wash the tires before putting it on display?

Nobody gives a crap about tiny lines in your lights.

That electronic dash has a worse UI than command line UNIX.

I had a 2011 Escalade. Traded it it for my 2019. I’ve been really satisfied with the platform and like the direction they’re going. I’m really digging the new model. I’ll probably get one.

View attachment 332212 Not feeling any love for Cadillac at the moment. CUE screen replacement for a 2015 SRX. My dealer wanted $1200.00. I did it for $160.00 and 3 hours of my time.
DIY from Cuescreens is the way to go.

I consider things like that a result of GM accountants vs. the car people who want to make a good product.

They should have re-engineered a replacement and just replaced them, no charge.

Google wasn't much help so maybe one of you can answer this. I noticed a light in my truck today (Toyota Tundra) that said "Airbag off". I assume that means for the passenger side only? I don't know how it got turned off, but I definately want it active on my side.

Here's something you don't see every day:


It's a bit expensive to run though, the fuel cost alone is $675 a second

18 gallons of fuel in 4 seconds! Wow! That is amazing!

I got my 2nd recall notice for my 2007 Toyota Sequoia's passenger side airbag, because the one they replaced last year apparently explodes periodically. They replaced my rear gate latch for free because it's the 3rd time it broke in 4 years, and I hardly use it. They also came up with $3,700 in repairs I "needed". I politely declined and took the car to my regular mechanic about 150 yards from dealer, who:
sway bar links-replaced for $285 v. $700 for Toyota
new power steering tube assembly-not needed
new battery-not needed
new head gasket-not needed

[bs2] on Toyota!!
Sounds like Harr Toyota.

Its Harr, isn't it?

Here's some cool info for anyone who's planning on buying a new Corvette.
There is an option for picking your own VIN.
And, the Corvette Museum offers the chance to get a photo album book of your car's construction. They send a photographer down the line with your car as it's being built. How's that for documentation?
