    GT-R (turbo) vs. Hybrid CR-V ??

    I'm sure he'd have mentioned it yesterday if they were imminent; instead he told me April. I'd really like to know the range on the hybrid - mileage is nice; but range is critical.

    GT-R (turbo) vs. Hybrid CR-V ??

    I am more concerned with range on a tank of gas than with economy per se. Gas stations are few and far between in the outback of the Intermountain West. The RAV4 hybrid felt very heavy to me. OTOH, the CX5 did not feel stellar and Honda has a great reputation for handling, which might carry...

    GT-R (turbo) vs. Hybrid CR-V ??

    $33,900 was the best on a GT-R (met. gray paint) I'm sure there won't be big discounts on the hybrid CR-V (except to the extent they need to compete with the Toyota) but it may pay to wait and see what it's like. OTOH, my Subaru's tires are getting worn...

    GT-R (turbo) vs. Hybrid CR-V ??

    What do we know about the forthcoming Honda CR-V hybrid? I'm especially concerned it may lack gnd. clearance which is already marginal... I had expected to get a GT-R last year but never get a decent price quote and am not getting one this year either (only one Mazda dealer within 80 miles of me).

    What did you pay for your CX-5?

    I can get a 2020 or a 2019 GT-Reserve - the price difference is only $1,500 - does that make any sense? It seems like the 2019 should be discounted more as last years model.

    Denied warranty

    Tell Mazda that their dealer just violated the Magnusen-Moss Warranty Act. Do you have any friends who are attorneys and could send out a fun letter on their letterhead? Put the exact date and as close as possible to the time they told you this, and state the name and title of the person who...
