    In slightly-related news, the new brake caliper seems to be working well on the Dakota, and the “MityVac” kit I bought at Northern Tool worked nicely to bleed the brakes without a helper. (If you’re curious: http://www.northerntool.com/shop/tools/product_391590_391590 )
    I wasn’t able to install the half-shaft though, so the wheel well gained a few new specks of CV grease on the brake’s test drive. It’s not very fun when the only thing holding the hub assembly to the steering knuckle is the rust after the bolts are out, and the blows from a 3-lb [1.36 kg] sledge were putting small dents into the back outer edge of the wheel flange (the only accessible place to hammer) instead of making it move… I guess it’ll be off to a shop for that nonsense.

      An Escapade indeed.

        Having seen one of those parked next to one of the current ones earlier today, it’s amazing how much more tasteful the Cimarron-equivalent version was in retrospect.

      I think it is part of the eye test.

    The Genesis 3.8 V6 GDI is finally available in Norway and it is getting good reviews. But the Hyundai importer is not going to advertise it for two reasons: It’s getting 19.6mpg in a European fuel cycle, which reviewers call out should be at least 40% better, and its price is 1.2 million NOK. Jepp, that is a 143000$ Hyundai. I guess it could be an interesting oddity in 20 years, if anyone buys it at all…

      Wow. A fully tricked out V6 with AWD and all available packages/accessories/options tops out at USD $53,470 here in the States. That’s not much of an incentive to move to Norway.

        Absolutely not. That’s one of the biggest downsides of progressive eco-taxes on cars – and an extreme gas guzzler like this one gets hit hard. For the same price, one can get somewhat nice-ish XC90 and that’s certainly a more obvious and popular choice.

      And this, very oddly prescient at the time…

      It’s pretty entertaining to scroll up and down, up and down, up and down, up and down …
