    I’ve never been to Colorado other than a airport layover. I’ll have to check it out.

    Kia Telluride

    Well I guess that explains it. I haven’t heard of it. I guess it’s Kia’s Denali or Rainer but instead of trim it’s a model. Thanks for the clarification.

    Kia Telluride

    Anyone else having difficulty with that name? For some reason I can’t believe that’s a name. It sounds like a Bluetooth device or something. Reminds me of the old Buick’s with dynaride on the dashboard. How did that get to production? It’s just asking for a SNL parody. I can tell you ride a Kia!

    Interesting story about a RAV I dealt with. 2006 mustang gt. Was bought back because of multiple trips of stalling because fuel was getting into evap system. Was deemed the customer was overfilling the tank. It was bought back and resold. It had never been to our dealer. Customer bought it and moved to our town. About 6 months after they bought it, they brought it in for check engine light and stalling. Guess what, raw fuel in evap canister. So two customers same problem. I replaced the tank and charcoal canister and problem fixed. Never happened again. I feel all RAV can be fixed. The issue is duplicating the problem and having a competent tech to fix it.

    Lincoln's Elegant BEV

    Since the continental name came back maybe they can call it mark LSC or mark ix. Model E sounds better as a Ford. Mach E and Mark E definitely will be confusing.

    "Most Reliable" ad pulled

    That’s Chevy’s demographic. Ideal customer. Reminds me of the Kia store down the street. Can I get rims put on forenza and add it to My payments!?
  8. I was thinking the exact same thing.
  9. https://www.google.com/amp/s/amp.freep.com/amp/2557609002 Say what you want about Ford’s management but they do know how to build and sell trucks.

  11. Well at least the media won’t have the dilapidated train station to depict how rough Detroit is. I’m sure it’s still corrupt but maybe it will start to turn around at some point.
  12. https://www.detroitnews.com/story/news/local/detroit-city/2019/01/11/ford-reveals-recovered-michigan-central-depot-artifacts/2541879002/ Ford buying this building may or not be a fantastic financial idea. However, I’m glad they bought it. It was always symbolism of the despair in Detroit. Now it’s a symbol of regrowth and hope for a lot of folks. I can’t wait to see how it turns out.
  13. That picture under the cowl of the wire mesh is the intake air for the ac system. Chances are the fumes are being pulled in by the fan. Shutting that door will block that air flow and the fan will just use the air in the cabin. The trunk has flaps that allow air to enter and exit the vehicle also. Ideally you should fix the exhaust leak. But I would recommend to crack a window open to make sure enough fresh air gets in. However, making the recirculation door stay closed is no different than driving the car around on max ac all the time .
  14. The recirculation door would do the same thing. Turn the ac to max or off. Drop glove box and when door closes disconnect the motor. Door stays closed and no more smell. That’s much easier to reverse when you do fix it.
  15. Pretty amazing to see the roller coaster of numbers. What’s interesting to me I always considered 1998 to be a good vehicle year for ford. That’s the last year of explorer and Taurus when they were full of features. Then in 99 ford started cheapening them up by de contenting them. No wonder they CEO’s were drunk on profits. It took 9 years to stop the fall of numbers. Of course the recession didn’t help that. Guess we will see how it goes from here. Only thing I see ford needed to do yesterday is get better suppliers/quality control.
