Quick thoughts on the Subaru Impreza STi:

Yes, I have owned a couple…It’s basically and supercar crossbred with Toyota Corolla, that gets terrible fuel economy…I mean TERRIBLE…about the same as a V10 M5, actually…Getting 12 mpg isn’t uncommon. “Wait, what, Aaron?”…you say…”No, the internet says that it gets better fuel economy.” Well, news flash…the internet is stupid, sometimes.

Dear Chrysler . . . are you done sucking?

Dear Chrysler:

I have seen images of what you’re putting out these days, like that new 2011 300 Sedan, and I just don’t care (http://www.topgear.com.ph/news/all-new-chrysler-300-sedan-revealed). . . but I would like to.

The fact is, your cars are disposable and I haven’t seen much in the past 3 decades that has swayed me from coming to this conclusion.

One very lucky driver

This accident occurred north of Deer Lodge on I-90. The driver was appx 22 year old guy heading east to College. He had left central Washington early in the morning.

He fell asleep at the wheel and drifted off the shoulder hitting the end of the section of guard rail.

The guard rail came through the right headlight, engine compartment, firewall, glove box, passenger seat, rear seat and exited out the driver’s side rear window.

That is 120 LF of guard rail that threaded through the suburban.

No passengers and the driver was not injured.
