Why is every car under 20k new boring as fuck?
might as well buy 20 corollas or take the bus
Compare them to a $7k car in 1980. Because that's the same thing not taking into account some purchasing power, even though that would roughly be the same in that time frame. the base corolla from that time was like $6k. So there ya go.
So I found a 2005 Infiniti G35x for 8 grand. It had 140k miles on it.
I drove it and was amazed. The interior, drive-train and handling all were like a new car. I couldn't find anything wrong with it. There was not even any wear on the leather seats. Besides some normal wear and tear on the outside it felt like a new car.
So what is the deal with these things? Are they normally reliable cars? From my research online it seems that they are. After driving it, it makes me want to look for one with lower miles for more money, which i'm willing to spend.
Shit trans in car. See them in the shop all the time. Interior is dated as fuck already. LOL orange dash lights. Don't age well. Other than that, the engine is a tank. The electronics are great. Suspension is okay. Bushings here and there. They aren't bad but they aren't good. Also 8k is a lot. I find the 2wd ones here for 4-6k with less miles. The awd isn't that good anyways. It's not true 50/50. I mean for an X it's not a high price, but I just don't think it's worth it.
A Cadillac Escalade completely engulfed in flames has the exact same carbon footprint as one idling at a stoplight.
Pretty awesome. I'm thinking about getting the EX-L. It's the same car but with leather seats. It feels way more planted on the highway than any other FWD compact I've driven save for the CLA. It actually feels like this was benched more against luxury branded vehicles like the CLA or A3. Probably the best car in it's segment right now. it also felt faster than the Mazda 3 even though it has a smaller engine and a turbo.
Looks like a Hyundai minivan.
Typical angry headlights, big mouth grill zzz.
And like usual it'll make less torque than a lawnmower, 0-60 in the 9 second range. Literally zero reason to be interested in this car.
Now if it wasn't so slow, didn't look like ass, wasn't fuck huge, wasn't fwd, wasn't going to be owned by teen girls, and didn't have a limp noodle chassis, maybe we'd have something to talk about.
As is, it's just a cheap Honda that'll...

Found this beauty near me, what's you opinion, /o/? This AWD wagon or RWD sedan?
What are you saving up for /o/?
>jpg related, for my penny-jar. White lasts the longest.
>tfw no BBF new edge
also the new miata is nice, cant wait to buy one as soon as they hit like 18-20k
It may have a face only a mother could love, but the 818 is just too awesome for me to not want.
I want a Hellcat. I've started hocking my shit on ebay and tucking aside a little bit here and there. I need to wait to see where my job is going to send me next before I take the plunge though.
How do you guys take off, do you rev and dump? I like to release the clutch till it catches, hit the gas, then release it all the way and go about my business.
I replaced serpentine belt ~2k miles ago
I hear squeaking 3 days ago loudest when accelerating
I take off serpentine belt, cleaned off pullies with carb cleaner and brush
This one squeaks
What is it called ? I'd like to look up a video and try to fix it. What do you guys think ? Not knowledgeable/good mechanic but can follow directions

The Porsche had a new engine installed at 35,000 miles. I saw it in person and it is in very good shape for an 11 year old car. After I have the transmission inspected along with brakes, I am going to make a $25,000 offer.
I think I should get 26-28k for my STI
Does /o/ think I should do it or nah?

So I have owned tons of fun cars. 300zxTT with over 500 whp. GTO. Mustang GT. Several 240sx. Titan. Trooper. Ram Dually 3500. Corolla GTS. S2000. A couple sport bikes and cruisers and tons more.
So here's my dilemma. I have $8,000 to either buy a cheaper vehicle or to put down on a vehicle under $30k OTD. My dilemma is that I need something more adult I have a couple dogs I take out in the woods, I go camping with the lady a couple times a year. I have to haul shit for the house. And I just can't decide what I want! I am open to wagons, 4 door sedans, trucks, suv,...

Can anyone explain to me why my Accord is oversteering when cornering hard at 45 mph on wet roads when it should be understeering?
