Re: The Official Car Comparison/Recommendation Thread by smartzee01: 8:01pm On May 31
@heavenlybangs, I just checked the vehicle and it comes in two trims.
Should I go for the base M35 or the sporty M35x?
Thanks!!

X is all-wheel drive. Handles worse than the regular RWD model, but is better for acceleration.

Depends on what you want.

I'd personally go with the Crosstour. Get the newest, most loaded one you can find.

The Ford Explorer is also a great car but newer Fords can have very tricky modules and technology.

Please car gurus in the house, is there any real difference between the the 2005, 2006 and 2007 models of Toyota Corolla?

Am told that the clearing charges for the models are different so I need to know the features and advantages one has over the other.

There is a difference in functionality and a few accessories addition. 03 to 05 same, 06 to 07 same. Better to buy the 06 or 07 the additional functionality are worth it from my experience

Not too old, you may be able to update the software. I doubt that'll be of any use, though.

That's why Android Auto/Apple Carplay are so useful.
