    Another B4 down. I got a wild deal on 3 B4s. One running the other two not. Sadly, only 3 months later - they are ALL GONE. The driver was rear ended so badly it was unfixable. One of the nonrunners didn't have a title so I stripped her, that caused the neighbors to call Code and they made...

    My wife's Murano is in the process of losing its CVT transmission so we've begun searching for a crossover/small SUV for her. First thing she says is "Ooo, I like the Saturn Vue!"
