Seriously, What Were They Thinking?

Recommended Posts

heading to the local dealer to test drive 1 for the missus as she no longer wants the forester due to the fact that I ''wrecked'' it with offroad tyres, nudge bar/driving lights and 2'' of lift i call them improvements.

 

''toyota'' its really hard to make fun of the name as it doesn't rhyme with any thing offensive

funny, my brother did exactly the same thing to his forester,

 

I always back the underdog, but the car was still a car, useless offroad to the point where i think any small front wheel drive would go further.

 

When it was stuck (always) with a wheel up you couldnt open the rear door because of body flex.

 

It was good for the beach though once it was lifted above a sand plough, if you kept it on the flats it went anywhere.

of course they have them in stock....no one wants to buy one!!!!

 

if I had $30K in my pocket...I'd go for a Mazda

 

 

yeah but if i had 30K i sure woudlnt be buying a brand new car!

 

but yeah the mazdas are quite good these days, i went for a spin in the new mazda sp23, leather seats,40 million buttons on the dash, it was a nice place to be.

 

and it doesnt look so bad from the out side, compared to the rukus.

 

AND its not called a RUKUS.

 

problem is new cars are so BIG. big dash, big doors, big wheels, big bonnet, even big engines.

 

yet they still manage 8L/100km. and handle VERY good.

 

imagine if they put the same technology into a car the same size and drivetrain layout as a ke70, damn that would be an awesome

Friend of Mrs. Shades bought a brand new Mazda 3... *yawn*

 

Parked next to the Chaser, the Mazda was actually bigger.

I'm sorry...? Bigger? :D

 

The 3 is shorter by 10cm, but the same width, and taller. It LOOKS much bigger though... May have something to do with the ugly bloated bodywork and upright glasshouse.

Looked at the Ruckus, but then looked at a 5 year old Audi A4 wagon for less $$$ and only 50,000kms.

No comparison, just need a few grand in the bank in case any issues with the A4. Weighing it all up now.

you know what, I'd much rather be paying the bills on servicing a brand new ruckus than have to deal with the bills on an A4. Is it the 1.8T?

its ok I still love you clint ;)

 

Ruckus needs a manual version.

 

But is it too much to ask for toyota to jump back on the hot hatch wagon? They've done well in the past and they're all the rage these days in the European market.
