Anyone wondering about the "performance" of the Auto needs to watch the Boost Gauge in this video (not my video). I never buy Automatics, but I love the Auto in this car:

Looks like you'll be getting a Jeep (too bad). I think the pic with the roof panel on looks so much better. Thats why I've never had mine off.

Hey Jeff, She goes topless as often as possible;) After more research on the 2012 Wranglers and potential head issues with the new Pentastar 3.6, I think she may be going Toyota FJ Trail Team Edition.

the wrangler motor issue has already been corrected in current production. Also it was a very small percent that had any issues (like one in 10,000) Get the wrangler not that ugly mess!

Awww, come on!!! I would buy that right now if it was a stick... I didn't even know they made a GXP Coupe until I just looked... (Haven't been keeping up on the Solstice since the Subaru BRZ and Scion FR-S came out). And you're in Mass, too! Drat. I wonder how hard a 5spd swap is... ;)

Thanks for the update Ex13, I am curious as to where you got your information regarding the resolution of Pentastar 3.6 issues.

I kind of like that "ugly mess", it reminds me of my Evo on Steroids:

Not to veer too far of topic, but the FJ Cruiser does have a factory backed TRD supercharger available. (I had one, big difference).

I've heard the FJs have issues with the frame braking during serious offroading. Just way too heavy of a vehicle. Could be just hearsay.

My wife has had her '05 Wrangler for 5 years. I had no idea how awesome that little Jeep could be. The other day we drove it over a bunch of staggered 8 foot tall chat piles. Didn't even break a sweat.

The Solstice looks pretty nice. But I know from experience there's something that calls girls to Jeeps. :D

Get the Jeep and support the American economy. The asians don't need any help and they certainly won't help you out in need.
