RE: Need TOAD advice ........................

Lane ... I agree with you that people only make NOISE when they are unhappy. BUT ............... as you research cars on CarComplaints website , as I have ( extensively ) ... you will see that MANY MANY MANY MANY MORE people seem to be VERY VERY VERY unhappy with JEEPS , than ANY other vehicle. THAT... cannot be ignored by someone that has an open mind. Then again ... look at how many people still smoke & take Opioids , until they die. If YOU like JEEPS ... and want them for some personal reason that overcomes financial risks ... then BUY ONE ! Then again ... we ALL are guilty of that EXACT same logic-flaw when it comes to MOTOR HOMES ! THEY .... are certainly an excuse follow personal preference , and NOT prudent financial judgements. Thanks for your comment .............. Richard

RE: Need TOAD advice ........................

AGAIN ... Thanks to all ( minus Mike ) ... who responded and gave me input. To those who have JEEPS , and feel my comment about them is off base... please keep in mind , I have never owned one , so my only source of info is from Car Complaints website and people who HAVE owned them... and are EXTREMELY unhappy about it ... BUT ... like an earlier poster said... if they treat them like ATVs ...Mud-Boggers .. and abuse them ... then THEIR opinion is invalid. Without knowing who is who .. I can only walk away with a negative opinion. Thanks again ... I did buy a Honda ELEMENT ( sorry Mike ... ) (( well ...not REALLY sorry ! ))

RE: Need TOAD advice ........................

So you did all this research on a toad and you went out and purchased a POS Damon made by Thor. ROTFLMAO Well Mike ... I have owned 13 motorhomes to include.. ..TWO Damon Challengers ( YUP... count 'em .... TWO ! ) ..a REXHALL AERBUS .. a REXHALL Rose Air .. a BOUNDER .. two COACHMEN units .. a PACE ARROW ............ and the list goes on AND ( wait for it ! ) ...... there is VERY LITTLE difference in any/ all of them ! The mfgr buys the frame / drive train from FORD-CHEVY or whoever.. ... They ALL use the same companies to supply Appliances - Furniture - TV's - Beds - and almost EVERYTHING inside. ... The ONLY places they differ , are on design features , and uh ... well ... uh ...gee , not much else.. even then , they are more alike than NOT ! ( get it ? ) BUT ... who am I to challenge someone with YOUR wealth of wisdom , that can see thru all of this, and declare THOR to be a POS ? Since I now own a SOUTHWIND , I will consider myself LUCKY to NOT own a THOR ( whew ! ) ...... I hope my current choice is good enough for YOU ! I am certain YOUR jeep rides like a flying carpet , especially as you bounce around on those trails in he backwoods ... and has every CHROME addition that makes people SWOON as you pass by.... One day .... I may as wise as I feel you see yourself... but perhaps not today ! IF .... you wish to go to CarComplaints website , you can tell the 12,700 people with severe JEEP complaints how WRONG they are... and it MAY make them feel better. Until then ... try NOT to help ME any more ... I seem to have digested your input , and feel a bit queezy from it ........................ ENVY - I guess ! Ha

RE: Need TOAD advice ........................

MetalGator .... I do suspect your analysis has a LOT of merit , since there seems to be a lot of them as toads. MANY ... of the Jeeps I see ( mostly Wranglers / NOT being towed ) ... are "pimped-up" ... and their decals are consistent with Off-Road and "Me-Bad-Dude" mentality . Sounds like YOUR experiences are GOOD and consistent with actually TAKING CARE of them . Thanks for the input. I did buy a Honda Element yesterday. Nifty little item.

RE: Need TOAD advice ........................

I thank ALL who are responding , but Please realize that I am not here to pick fights about YOUR personal choice of car. I read & absorb EVERY comment , and value each one.... however , as with all things in life, seemingly equal experiences have WIDE variations of results. Car Complaints website does show TRENDS of cars and their typical flaws. SOME... like Explorers & Jeeps ... are off the charts / BAD , and others have mixed reviews. While SOME may not live DOWN to expectations or trends , It pays to avoid them.

K Charles.... According to Matorhome Dinghy Guide... NONE of the HYUNDAIs are flat towable. Are you FLAT TOWING yours ?

RE: Need TOAD advice ........................

Y-Guy ... I am happy that YOURS is serving you well , and I am sure that MANY other owners say the same ... however .... Car Complaints website shows a VAST disapproval by so many owners that I do not wish to chance them , as a whole. The Cherokee - Grand Cherokee - Wrangler - Liberty being the worst of them .... and as I have personally looked at them in past years , I rarely found one that the AC worked ... or that the 4WD shifted without 3 ( strong ) people tugging on the lever. Thanks for the response , and I hope YOURS serves you well in the future. I owned an ENVOY / worked well but heavy Saturn LW ...Great car but rather tight fit for humans Saturn S-Series ... Small but fine car ... in it's day Tracker ... GARBAGE HHR ... Great Tow Car , but VERY VERY hard to sell CR-V ... Transmission does NOT hold up

Need TOAD advice ........................

I am looking for a FLAT TOW car , but it seems that almost EVERY one I consider , has really rotten ratings and histories on Car Complaints website. I prefer something between 2005 and 2012 , for price reasons. Jeeps ... ALL , seem to be a garbage car.. Saturns ... seem to drop transmissions often... Equinox ... appears to have LOTS of complaints, except for '09 and '14 and newer... Malibus ... Perhaps the worst transmissions & steering columns ever made... Pickups ... just too heavy ... I have had 5 in the past , and minimal issues , but those were older , and as such, made better than the non-American versions of newer ones. I would GREATLY enjoy any input from actual owners on this topic. Thank You

Towing Chevy HHR - Question

I just bought a 2007 HHR & had Base Plate installed. I see that the suggestion is to pull FUSE #8 / Ign. fuse .... to avoid battery running down. I unplugged mine in driveway just to see effects ... and there were a few ... but some items still worked ..... i.e. - warning light bulbs ^ more. I was expecting EVERYTHING to go out ..... but that did not happen. Does anyone with an HHR know if that is NORMAL , or NOT ? Richard '02 Damon Challenger S. Carolina
