Daily Podcast Lieberman Edition: A Curse On 3.7 Liter Engines
Golden2husky on Oct 18, 2008
Justin, the G37's engine is a gem, but real world mileage sucks if you use it like you should. And I do remember the 1.8 litre V6 in the Mazda. In fact I always had a soft spot for Mazda engines. Lastly, that oldie but goodie slant six engine is a legend in durability. There used to be speed parts for the slant six, too. Internals never broke on these pups

@davey49: Mirko Reinhardt- expense is why Wranglers aren’t diesels. Do you really want to add $4-5K on to the price of a Jeep? It's only a $1584 difference in Germany before taxes, not anywhere near the figure you quoted. If the Wrangler had a more modern V6, cost qould certainly be at least on par with a 4-cylinder diesel. @Banger You’ve taught me a great deal more about the 7 series, for which my heart has a soft spot. I stand corrected, and thank you for the info! You're welcome. I have a soft spot for some BMWs too. And no, I’ve never watched The Transporter. It's not as wrong as Transporter 2, and it features a manual transmission E38 735i.

- Johnster Not feelin' it. The traditional unreliability of turbo engines is a big turn-off, especially in a work truck that (I hope) you'd want to keep on the road for 200,000 miles or more without having major repairs.
- ToolGuy Car audio is way overpriced.
- Marty S The original Charger was a 2 door, as was the landmark 68 model. Its funny that some younger commenters are surprised that its not a four door. I never understood why modern Chargers have been four door sedans. I think the best looking Charger was the 68, absolutely perfect in its lines and proportions. This concept really emulates that and I think I think it looks great.
- Master Baiter The D-bag elites like Al Gore demanding that we all switch to EVs are the type of people who don't actually drive. They get chauffeured around in black Yukon Denalis. Tesla does have a good charging network--maybe someday they will produce a car that doesn't suck.
- MRF 95 T-Bird As a Challenger GT awd owner I lIke it’s heritage inspired styling a lot. There’s a lot of 66-67 as well as 68-70 Charger in there. It’s refreshing that it doesn’t look like a blob like Tesla, Volt/Bolt, Mach-e BMW I whatever etc. The fact that it’s a hatch makes it even better as a everyday driver thus eliminating the need for a CUV. If it’s well built and has a reliable track record I can see trading up to it in a few years.
