Just sold my wife's '01 Civic and bought a '07 Town & Country. I wasn't a fan but it's for her so...

I drive an '05 Malibu.

I love it. In 2007 there were the Classic model (old style) and the new style. Mine is the new style extended cab z71. At times I wish mine were a crew cab so if you need the room I'd go that route. I have the 6.0L gas engine in mine and it gets around 12-17 depending on my driving habits. If I could choose again I would have went with the Duramax. I like the 6.0, but the diesel would've been sweet. Like every 3/4 ton I've ever seen, it rides like a tank. I've been told the crew cabs ride a little smoother because they're not as rigid.

In the end if what you do requires a heavy duty pickup I'd definitely go with a 2500 over a 1500. I've never once looked at my truck and wished it was a half ton. Hope this helps and if you get one post up pics!

Depends on the defensive tactic I want to employ that day. The minivan is better for bangin down low and taking a charge. But the Pontiac is better for guarding the perimeter and stopping the drives down the center of the lane.

Yeah, the longer the wheelbase, the softer the ride. Load the bed and it'll smooth out, too.

I'd love to find a 03-07 (classic), 4x4, black, 3/4 ton, extended cab, long bed with the 8.1 and either the Allison or the manual. That's the truck I'm hoping will pop up one day on Craigslist. The Duramax is a beast of an engine, but it's hard to justify the $5-7k premium unless you are towing all the time.

The 6.0 in your truck is an awesome engine. The GenIII small blocks are all very well engineered and you should get a lot of life out of it. I'm probably going to swap a 5.3 into the truck I listed in my first post, above. They are very popular swaps for a wide variety of vehicles (RX7, older BMWs, Corvettes, Camaros, Mustangs etc).

Re: What do you drive?

Don't ask me how but you made me remember two things I don't like.

1. Torque management. As soon as my drivetrain warranty is up I'm getting a BlackBear tune and taking it down.

2. the GM 6 Speed automatic. Nothing too bad like erratic shifting, but I will never get used to my truck shifting so much. It changes gears constantly around town and is kinda annoying.

For #1, you could probably get a tuner that you can remove TM with and then reprogram the computer if you need to take it in for work.

If your truck has a tow/haul mode, try using it. It should hold the shifts longer and the computer will not allow the transmission to shift so often (up or down).

Does it still come with a nice Bose sound system?
Yeah it's a great car. I got all the bells and whistles. Had too. I'm too much of a gadget guy not too. It has a 9 speaker Bose audio system, XM, leather, sunroof, iPod dock, bluetooth, the little camera that comes on the display screen when you're in reverse, digital climate control.. It's a lotta fun. Very good car. And so damn smooth.

Re: What do you drive?

2002 Honda Accord.

Kinda hoping my car will end up like the ones in the Toyota commercials with the people saying their car has like 400,000 miles or some shit. That's incredible. Although if I put anywhere near that many miles on a car, it's way past time for a new car.

Right now I'm coming up on 107,000 miles. The repair dude says I'm gonna end up having to get a timing belt put in. Apparently those things run like $2,000. Ughhh.

Re: What do you drive?

My wife is driving a 2006 Chevy Cobalt. It's got a hair less than 40K miles, and has been a great car so far. No problems whatsoever (knock on wood). I was driving a 1998 Acura 2.3 CL that I'd had since 2000. Sold it a while back, and we were a 1 car household for a while. It wasn't a big deal because we both work in Bethesda only about 3 miles from where we live. So sometimes we'd carpool, other times I'd just hop on the bus ($1.35 and 15 minutes later I'd be at work). But I just got tired of it. We saved some money sharing a car for a while, but I could afford the new car, and frankly for as hard as I've been working, I felt like I owed it to myself to get a new one. Plus the wife will be working in the Tenleytown area effective Sept 1, so the timing was just right.

Re: What do you drive?

the new 4th gen altimas are freaking sweet though, love the ride, the nissan D platform fwd is better than many other fwd's I've driven as far as performance.. save maybe the honda preludes, but that's to be expected

it's towards the end of the generation run so most bugs are worked out

as with any other car check on all recalls and TSBs

Re: What do you drive?

2006 Jeep Grand Cherokee Limited. Just rolled over 50K miles, and have owned it for the last 10K. So far no problems. I have the 4.7 V8 so no MDS. Mileage is actually just shy of 19 HWY doing 70+, which is what the Hemi would get. I did not buy it for the MPG, I bought it for getting through the artic winters we have been having in the mid-west. So far, it has dominated at that task.
