Just heard today that GM might be recalling 600,000 Durangos.... apparently they are having some minor issues with the front wheels falling off!

I love it where they said the mechanic should be able to spot the problem during routine mataintance, Two comments, 1. Not if they were hired from Pinnacle Nissan and 2. DUH!

GRIP :d

Wouldn't it make sense that VW owns porsche considering the t-reg and cayenne are made off the same chassis and they share a huge # of parts?

VW doesn't need to spend the money to buy Porsche as they have a family connection and a long history?
Fredinand Porsche designed the original beetle and after WWII he started his own company. Now, his grandson (Ferdinand Piech) just took over as the head of the board of directors at VW after being the CEO for a number of years.

Yes, uphill righthander at the end of the pit straight. E Production Datsun 2000 I had at the time [Nissan Motorsports]. Quick nudge on the brakes with simultaneous downshift from fifth to fourth, get the car turned in and back on the gas before the apex for the uphill, then the left rear axle broke right at the apex. Car was a writeoff but sold the fresh motor and close ratio tranny [unobtanium] for more than I'd paid for the whole car and spares a few years prior. Changed to GT3 so I could run a tubeframe car with a full floater rear end--didn't want that to happen again. But I was never more fond of another car than I was of that roadster...... :eek:

Sounds like the "heel of the Boot" left turn at SCCA Marlboro where I lost it, in my "Serbring Sprite" back in 1960 or there abouts.
