1991-2002 Toyota Corolla Wagon (Sprinter Wagon, Corolla Van, Sprinter Van) Mk.VII
Unfortunately, there is a big gap in the van engine specifications, as I don't have sources between 1993 and 2000.

All?

Well the 91-93 model has red - top and orange - bottom, whereas the 89-91 model has orange - top and red - bottom. So looking at these pictures, I can tell Red, (probably) Brown and Blue are all wrong.

Except that if we erase some things like bonus points or carspotting, we need to replace them in menu at the top of te page

We could make a new list of makes? We can rename the existing one "A-Z makes" and have a new one with only big (American, European, Japanese, Korean) makes, for easier searching.

Rinspeed wrote Problem with removing points is that allow or not to translate IGCD or WCS. What can we do with that?

I don't know, is there any way for you to see how many people use WCS/IGCD in another language? I think the great majority uses the English page, so maybe we could get rid of translations.
You could also leave the languages we have now, because I don't think any new ones have been added in a very long time.

Perhaps the points yes. I think also the note for intro in IGCD, the note for car in WCS (not used), the cars for the stars (i don't see them used)? Points for Carspotting? Tell me what you think and some things that we could erase without impact.

Sounds good to me, everything that isn't used or rarely used can go.

Example for IGCD:

Same things for WCS but with a lot more requests as there is a lot more differents sections

I see, well if there is a problem with too many requests from the database, it looks like a lot of requests go to updating points.
I personally don't really care about points (don't know about other members), and I think we don't really need them to judge whether a member can be an admin or not.
So if it would be better for the database, points can be deleted entirely in my opinion.

I also don't know if it helps at all, but the page you get saying "Car/engine/location/whatever added successfully." doesn't seem necessary for me. If you add an engine for example and then immediately return to the car page, that works fine. It would even save time I think. I don't know if that has any impact on database requests though.

So, just to see, is there fonctionnality that you see that there are useful in IGCD and WCS? I don't have the time now but i can do the list of the request to the database for the pages games/car in IGCD and make/car in WCS if you want to see them.

I'm not entirely sure what you mean with request at the database. What would you like to see from us?

Since 2018 Lexus ES
The Lexus ES, which has been mostly North America-exclusive since its start in 1989, is scheduled to be introduced to Japan.
It is the likely successor to the GS, which will be slowly phased out after the ES's introduction.

Seeing how the GS will not get a new generation, it will be interesting to see whether the ES will also come to Europe, or if there will be a gap between the IS and LS.

EDIT: I just checked the Dutch Lexus website, and while the GS is no longer listed, it does list the ES as an upcoming car. I guess this confirms that the ES is now becoming a global model.

Since 2018 Honda N-Van
carcrasher88 wrote Fifth member of Honda's H-Family of kei cars, I take it? Nice to see them continuing to be dedicated to expanding the lineup. Is it supposed to be a Vamos and/or Vamos Hobio replacement, or something to compliment the Acty lineup, similar to how the Daihatsu Hijet Caddie (commercial variant of the Wake) compliments the Hijet lineup?

It is in fact scheduled to be the successor to the Vamos and take the N-Series to the commercial market. It also doesn't have a B-pillar in order to make loading from the side easier [See interior image].

The Honda N-Box (even before it entered the second generation) suddenly became extremely popular in Japan and dethroned the Daihatsu Move and Suzuki Wagon R, which have dominated sales in this specific class for over 20 years. Honda is hoping this success rubs off on the similar N-Van.

The cars were sold through Toyota's own dealer network.

You can't, because you're not an admin. I have changed them for you.
Right now, you are missing torque and rpm on the engine you added, and there is also an automatic version of the same engine.

If you prefer, you can also start over with a new page and we will delete the one you have already made.

2000-2003 Toyota RAV4 (RAV4 J, RAV4 L) Mk.II
Like a few other Toyotas, the RAV4 came in different versions for different dealership networks. The RAV4 J was for the Netz network, and the RAV4 L was for the Corolla network.

The only visual difference seems to be the grille, with a diagonal pattern for the J, and a horizontal pattern for the L. After the facelift in 2003, the two models this difference disappeared, and the models became identical.

In the Netherlands at least, the sedan was never sold. Only the hatchback. It also had the license plate mounted between the taillights instead of on the rear bumper.

This page is for the Japanese market Honda, so the European market one would need its own page in Honda (Europe).

Looks good, I have already added some information for Japanese manufacturers. For brands which are subsidiaries of other companies (Mazda's Autozam/Efini/Eunos, Hino Motors, Isuzu, etc.) I have added the bigger company or company that came before it as Founder. With Ford (Japan), I have listed Ford Motor Company as the founder, as well as listed the years that Ford Japan was active instead of Ford as a whole.

Since 2015 Jaguar XE S [X760]
carcrasher88 wrote Ford's cuts are pretty much confirmed.

From what I've heard ONE of the three (300, Charger, Challenger) will get cut, with replacements for the other two coming in 2021.

I've heard about GM considering cutting the Sonic, Impala, Volt and XTS, but nothing about the LaCrosse or CT6. The XTS needs to go, anyway. It really doesn't make sense to have two similarly sized sedans in the lineup, even if one is FWD and the other RWD. Kinda similar to why Lexus is considering cutting the GS and keeping the ES.

Still, the automakers are gonna eventually kill the US auto market with crossovers and SUVs, especially when gas prices are on the climb once again...and, even after the summer season is over, they're not likely to go back down as much as they have.

I agree, it seems very unwise for all of them to go after the same thing. Even if there is a crossover craze right now, I don't think there is unlimited demand for them. And like you say, if the gas prices climb again, consumers will be running back to economic cars, and these companies will just look stupid with showrooms full of SUVs.

Regarding the cars I mentioned, it's just straight out of the Autoblog articles, might not be 100% accurate. Apparently the boss at Cadillac recently changed, and the old one was very reluctant to get rid of all those sedans. Now that there is someone new, it seems likely that Cadillac will cut at least the XTS, perhaps also the CTS and ATS. I would be surprised if they discontinue the CT6, seeing how that is the newest car they have.

That's exactly what I need, another SUV...

I've been reading a few articles on Autoblog lately, and it seems the American market is going to be nothing but crossovers and SUVs.
Ford is planning to stop producing all cars that aren't crossovers/SUVs in the US, other than the Mustang and the new Focus Active.
Chrysler is looking to stop producing the 300 and Charger.
GM has apparently been thinking about axing a lot of models, starting with the Chevy Sonic, Impala and Volt, Buick LaCrosse, and Cadillac XTS and CT6.

If the big three do this, there will basically be no American sedans left, which leaves the market to the Korean and Japanese companies, if they don't decide to do the same thing.

Since 2015 Jaguar XJ [X351]
Are the engine names on this car really correct? I can't find proof of the I-4 and V6 being from Mazda and Toyota. What's more, the 1MZ-FE engine from Toyota was in cars between 1993 and 2006, so I highly doubt that it would appear in a 2015+ top-of-the-line Jaguar. 2018-04-25 09:20
