I'd argue that there may not be a better carry pistol... But you always have to define "better" or "best" before you can discuss it. I've carried 1911's of all ilk, from Defender to Special Combat and have little trouble conce

Experience tells me that it's not worth it unless you're doing 40-50K per year with consistent highway miles. Even in a medium-duty application, I would prefer a gasoline engine for low mile stop-and-go operations. Modern diesel emissions technology

Other than the efficiency of the diesel, it only gains 700Lbs of towing capacity over the 3.6 gas version. I doubt anybody is going to tow that heavy in a truck like this anyway and if you have something that big to tow, buy a full size.

If you want to carry a Colt, the fullsize 1911 is not the best or easiest. A commander sized gun would be better, or you could look at the Mustang. Colt is a darn good pistol, but usually they are priced a bit high for what they are.

Funny, but my 15 Civic is pretty quiet inside, easily the quietest of all the six Hondas I've owned, and significantly quieter than a Corolla or a 3. Granted, the standard for the Accord should be set higher, but if they were cheaping out on sound i

There have been countless posts of people asking for a small/mid pickup with a diesel, and here it is. I am sure it will be solid, but I can't figure out the purpose. Personally if I am towing, I am buying a fullsize truck.

I guess we are kin. I agree with you. A dealer buddy of mine that works for Honda also said its cost cutting. Hondas are not really expensive but fix the noise issues and hit me $500. I had a new 2009 RT Challenger in Hemi Orange Super quiet and it

For bikes with a sight glass...how difficult would it have been for the manufacturer to locate the sight glass on a spot on the engine case where you could check the oil level with the bike on the kickstand, instead of having the have the bike level?
