Wolfgang your driving me nuts. What is a Yeti or Kuga? On this side of the pond a Yeti is a large ape like animal that lives in the woods. I don't think anyone has seen one unless they have had too much Schnapps. :smilewink:

@ Chris, on this side of the pond a yeti is also a snow ape or something like that. VOLKSWAGEN is selling different 4WD. Biggest is the TOUAREG with 280 hp. Next is a pickup called Amarok (that means Wolf). And the next 4-wheeler is the Tiguan (Tiger + Leguan). And the cheapest 4WD is the YETI. Sorry, all sites are in german language - but with interesting pics.
skoda_yeti_ginevra_5.jpg Here's the YETI - seen without drinking Schnaps :smilewink:

btw SKODA will be spoken like shgodda, it's czeck :bounce:

My daily driver is an 06 Sierra with the 5.3 V8 and the 4 speed automatic. Does pretty good at towing the bigger tractors for what it is. Will trailer our Farmall M around without too much trouble.

Wife drives an 03 Jeep Liberty 3.7 V6. The thing is a fuel hog! On the highway I can get just as good of fuel mileage or better with the truck as I can the Jeep. Jeep usually averages around 17 MPG whether its in town or highway. Trucks not great in town, but I've gotten up to 21 out of it highway driving when I'm careful.

I know its not a great shot of the jeep, but its all I could find.

My wife talked me into this 2012 Silverado 1500 in February although I have owned Ford F150s since 1989 all with over 235,000 fairly trouble free miles when I got rid of them. Ford dealer didn't want to deal and Chevy did.

Not a bad truck but the 6 speed auto is taking some getting used to. Pulls our 25' travel trailer fine but only about 12.5 mpg. 19.5 to 21 at 65 on trips. Plan on it outlasting me.

Lets try this

Had one of those once. If you ever get into the top end, caefully read the manual on cam belt tension.
I broke 3 camshafts by tightening the belt too much. The only good part of that is the cam is very easy to change.
