Hmmmm... wonder what’s on it? That HTML file looks intriguing... Hey look it’s (most of) Oppo!So I guess that’s the contingency plan for the next time we have a “GMG might be ending” scare.

The first gen Suzuki XL-7 (basically a stretched Grand Vitara) could be had with a manual transmission and a third row seat. There are very few cars ever offered, in the U.S. at least, with that combo. The only other similarly equipable cars that come to mind are few Volvos and a Land Rover. Oh and a 1st gen...
