RE: I am Now Qualfiied as an "Old Man"

I turned 65 last year. Got my free provincial fishing license, available to seniors. The fishing store also gave me a free ball cap as part of another promotion.

RE: GM trying to keep you from modding your vehicle

Very interesting thread about what does ownership constitute and our ability to modify as per an owner's machinery needs...or simply desires to modify machinery. This thread should stimulate a lot of discussion. Thanks for posting.

RE: Insomnia-cures?

Congratulations on getting off of the anti-anxiety med’s, hope you feel better. My cure for sleeping problems works every time. All I need to do is go somewhere in the rig and I sleep far better than at home. That and the food tastes better. I guess it is the magic of being on the road. What I find relaxing about sleeping in the trailer at a park...is the quiet of the outdoors, the gentle wind rustling through the open screened trailer windows and the Queen sized mattress is wonderful.

RE: Insomnia-cures?

I've never slept a lot. Five-six hours a day is pretty normal for me. My doctor asked me if I'm tired with this amount of daily sleep...I'm not. He says, then my body is getting enough rest...for me. But everybody is different, wise to check individually with your own MD.

RE: Didja ever...

I don't do colour selection of paint. My wife does. She has a very good eye. So far, all is good in paint selection over the years.

RE: GMC Canyon & 30' Airstream

While the Canyon may handle the trailer under "ideal" conditions put it into an emergency braking/ lane changing situation and it's going to fail horribly. It's simple physics. Ever hear the phrase "tail waggin the dog". You know that for sure...." it's going to fail horribly "...even though GM rates this truck...when equipped for towing at it's maximum rating, to tow and handle a trailer of the size/weight in the video. I'm different. I tend to go with the GM (or Ford or Dodge) university trained, engineers who have a pretty good handle on simple physics and are able to design, test and determine what a vehicle's capabilities will be.

RE: GMC Canyon & 30' Airstream

Interesting test. I have read and watched (youtube tests) nothing but positive things about the new Chevy Colorado/ GMC Canyon. Looks like a winner.

RE: Spied: 2017 Chevy 1500 Silverado

I like the larger tires they have on this truck... Link I agree. I've found the current Chevy trucks have too much wheel well and not enough tire....in 'looks' at least. This '17 truck looks better in that regard, IMO. Les

RE: Bobcat vs Shark

I think it was a case of the Bobcat finding a 4 foot shark in the shallows....which was an advantage for the feline, but not for the relatively small shark. Once the shark was pulled out of the water....it was..like a fish out of water....relatively helpless.... compared to the Bobcat which has agility and traction on land. The shark being a denizen of the deep...or in this case the shallows...once out of water...couldn't apply it's strength...it's designed to use water resistance...to move with purpose. Now if the Bobcat was in 20 feet of water, quite away from shore and there was say a 7 foot shark...well my bet would be on the shark.

RE: Don't Buy a Dodge, There is a Good Reason Why .

Ok, because Chrysler USA doesn't want to warrant a transmission that they didn't sell and they didn't install, they are crooks. Got it. Thanks for the warning! That's odd. While in California, I had the tie rod recall done on my Canadian Ram while it was being serviced. The guy next to me at the park was from Vancouver Island and had some problems with his on the way down. Repairs were made under warranty by a dealer in Oregon. Exactly. My GM warranty says that I can get my car repaired on warranty....anywhere in the USA or Canada.

Isn't Mopar Powertrain a division of Chrysler ? I don't know the details of Chrysler, but I'm assuming that Mopar Powertrain is part of Chrysler. Do you know if tis is the case ?

RE: Don't Buy a Dodge, There is a Good Reason Why .

Sounds to me like there are some issues here. The man an experienced shifter, had with three transmissions of the same make, with problems, in a row, in one vehicle. That is an issue. Also and I quote from the OP..." ... from Mopar Powertrain cancelled the warranty because the tranny was installed in Canada. " Why would Mopar Powertrain do that, because their transmission was installed by a shop, over the border ? I thought the provisions of the Free Trade Act dealt with situations like this. I think the OP should contact Chrysler Canada and the Federal Dept. of Consumer Affairs, to review this decision. Again as the previous poster indicated, there more be more than one side to this.

RE: Towing with the Pentastar V6

The Dodge van (283 hp) has the same 3.6 liter V6, but different HP rating, as the Jeep Wrangler (285 hp) or the full size Ram pickup (305 hp). It is a very good engine. Chrysler 3.6 liter V6 I'm not surprised your towing experience so far, has been good. You've kept within the manufacturer's tow ratings and you're monitoring things carefully. Have fun.

RE: Mercedes Developing a new Pickup Truck

Nothing is "free" Exactly...you pay for it one way or the other. Salaries, parts, shop supplies, shop rentals,tools, electricity, etc....it all has to be paid.

RE: Mercedes Developing a new Pickup Truck

Mercedes parts cost the same as Japanese???? What bull. Example 2010 Mercedes water pump for v6...168.00 for a Lexus v6....41.00 Lessee....a speedometer sensor for my 2007 Toyota Matrix cost....$ 465. Don't know what the corresponding Benz part would cost.

RE: Mercedes Developing a new Pickup Truck

My Audi Q5 is two years old now and has never had one problem, adjustment or recall in that time. Not one. I bought the Audi Care package which covers all scheduled maintenance for the first four years and cost $700 CAD. Wish my truck was anywhere near that cheap. After the warranty is up, are you going to trade it in....or take a chance ? I sometimes think with the cost of electronic parts/other components and labour, maybe the best deal is to keep a vehicle until the warranty is up, then unload it. With any make.

RE: Morning chuckle

At times like this, it makes me glad I drive a Chevy! Nope you drive an Isuzu. I know what you mean. A number of years ago, I wondered if you drive a Ford Taurus SHO....if that meant you drove a Yamaha...as it had a Yamaha engine...or if you drove a Ford pickup...did it mean you drove an International / Navistar ? Or if you drove a Dodge/Ram pickup diesel...is it a Cummins ? Hard to know.

RE: Mercedes Developing a new Pickup Truck

I can't imagine this Benz pickup selling well in NA. If it was intro'd to North America, I would think it would be regarded as a high end Honda Ridgeline. Interesting niche player, but not a big demand.

RE: 2017 Ford Superduty Megacab?

I could see a 3.5 turbo V6 in an F 350, in the future. Upcoming federally mandated MPG requirements are becoming increasingly stringent.

RE: 7.3L Ford Diesel

...." my first truck prior to that was a 1963 F-100 with a strong 289 and three on the tree." Sounds like a nice truck. Think back then, didn't Ford have the 'unibody' truck bed ? Maybe that was a couple years earlier. Your '63 probably.... originally..... had either the 292 Y block V8....or the six. The 289 might of been a replacement engine. But however it was originally equipped, it would be a nice vehicle.
