An example of compromise. A vehicle you really like with one small flaw, that will definatly effect weather you are a repeat customer.

Now Jeff is just chomping at the bit to through out his favorite line.

Re: The never ending engine thread, East-West

Not here. There are people out there that stand by their brand. Being as open minded as I am. Should my mini-van give me any problems, I'd just look for a good used Dodge Grande Caravan.

Dale I bought my Caravan 2 yrs ago and never had to pull a wheel off of it. It has 180,000 on it and runs like a charm. MY old beater caravan I had before this one would sing down the hwy like it just came off the lot. (except for the body panels flapping in the wind) It started backfiring of me and coughing after a rain fall and I drove it right into the scrap yard.

Re: The never ending engine thread, East-West

Hey want to try something here.
If this attaches, I will come back and add a description to it.

http://www.rccanada.ca/rccforum/pict...pictureid=1765

O.K, it worked. A photo from three years ago (or 4). Taken by Brodie. My Pilatus setting up to do a maiden tow on a new 1/3 scale glider. All being pulled by my trusty G62.
