Re: 2012 Kizashi for a Teenager?

There is some confusion here so let me try to clear it up: All automatic transmissions in the Kizashi are CVTs, regardless of FWD or AWD. The confusion comes from the fact that the Kizashi is available with a 6 speed manual transmission but only in FWD. I have one of these. As for getting a used Ki...

I see you're rapidly clocking on the miles...I'll keep mine in the garage for you when you require #5 next year.

Re: Another one bites the dust

Damn shame. Glad you were not injured. What a really nice car you had. Totaled because of bags. What a waste.

Re: 114 Days: Pt IV Gettin' ludicrous

#4...that is awesome. Somehow I knew you couldn't resist finding another one. As you say, show me a comparable vehicle for anywhere near the $$... Which of course, try as one might, ya can't.

Looong ride from Jersey to OT's neck of the state.

Re: A friendly race

I have a question though.... Would my.car had done better if I used the manual mode and pedal shifters instead of CVT mode? Sent from my GM1910 using Tapatalk My personal seat-of-the-pants meter says yes. Experiencing a 'good' launch in a Kizashi w/a CVT in auto mode is a very perplexing ordeal. Th...

Re: Battery Size?

I would hope so for that kind of coin. The problem remains that when they need replaced, and they will, 1) it's not something you're going to be able to do yourself very likely and 2) it's massive money...as in time to buy a new car. My financial advisor recently learned the lesson with her pristine...
