Why is Ford so inferior to Mazda?
I'm in the market for a luxury SUV for my wife and kids. I'm looking at the Cadillac Escalade.
What's the opinion about this car? I'm also white but race association isn't a problem with the new Escalades. I'm just wanting something that's maximum comfort when driving.
If you have any alternatives please let me know but the vehicle Gross weight must be above 6,000lbs (tax purposes) and luxury.
BTW I get $25,000 off any SUV that has a vehicle weight exceeding 6000lbs
>getting paid to use more gas
Why does our government want to deplete our natural resources so quickly? Surly we should focus on inner-planetary travel before so willingly draining our own at the very least..
What is an NSX? There's only been one before now.
I think it can best be decribed as a pure racing glove, combining man and machine to produce speed. The old one did it with great mechanical engineering, and the new one seems to do it with electronic engineering as well.
The body looks pretty disgusting, I will give you that, but everything else looks very promising. Everything about the drivetrain and suspension seems highly tunable and therefore open to further improvement. I like the fact that it has...

I don't think its progressed far enough to do with an NSX. They aren't going to sell any because it is now in the realm of hypercar, in which it is mediocre, but it's still too expensive for the type of people who would have bought the old NSX when it first came out.
It's also really fucking ugly.
Good review. Will it be faster than the GT-R?
About exhaust sound from the comment section:
> its the sound of your roommate turning on the vacuum to try mask the sound of smoking a bong lol
Hi /o/ can I have advice/opinions/stories about the ford ranger? I was thinking of buying one I saw that only had 100k miles, are the smaller, older ones reliable?
rangers are without a doubt the best mid sized truck you can get.
if it has the a4ld at 100k and hasnt been rebuilt, make sure you have the money to fix it because that is the weakest point.
>I used to think BMW was british because of how much Top Gear shilled it
can someone explain crankcase ventilation to me pls?
it looks simple on some cars and a clusterfuck on others.
why is this and what is the best way to design a system on an engine you're rebuilding from scratch?
on most cars you arent revving the tits off it all the time so the excess oil that can be sprayed out (vented) isnt that high - so its pretty basic.
on a car like you posted, this is probably tracked (or at least should be) so due to spending more time at higher revs more oil can be vaporised/atomised/whatever the term and needs to be caught and emptied.
but with an engine like the RB that has oiling issues what is the way to spec it from scratch?
assuming some hard driving, more power than stock and the occasional track day?
any basic principles?

>driver assistance braking (or whatever it's called)
>sport/performance mode on autotragics
Rear view cameras are needed with gunslit rear """"windows"""". Sport mode gives the steering some feedback usually, which is nice. Also makes the throttle more linear.
Idiot-enabling auto-braking (not ABS) is pretty bad, though.
Hello /o/. I want a WRX STI but I've come to find that there are many options on the market for AWD sports cars. Should I spring for another current of future option, wait for the new WRX model or go with what my heart says?
What does /o/ think of the Toyota Avensis?
Why is there no thread about this? Honda gonna make a new S2000.
>Now a third generation is said to be under development as Honda tries to reconnect with the S2000’s dedicated fan base. Representatives from Honda’s advanced engineering department are said to have attended a recent S2000 owners’ club event in the British Isles - a sign that the firm wants to listen to enthusiasts in order to help it to position the next version of the car accurately.
>The new S2000 will stay true to the original’s principles of a front-mounted engine, sited behind the axle line, and rear-wheel drive. It will be pitched as a faster alternative to the MX-5, although its performance should be more of a match for that car’s stablemate, the forthcoming Fiat 124 Spider, which uses a 1.4-litre turbocharged engine instead of the Mazda’s naturally aspirated 1.5 and 2.0-litre units.
Personally prefer RWD because it can't be beat
why doesnt the inline 6 get anymore love in the us, and really a lot of the world now, unless its a fuckhuge diesel or a beemer? surely extending the car an extra foot or so to fit the engine isnt THAT big of an issue? or do people just not care about dat natural balance and muh revs? its not like it can be any more inefficient than a v6, actually it should be moreso since there are no balance shafts and only having to drive 2 cams vs 4 and its not trying to shake itself apart right?
>surely extending the car an extra foot or so to fit the engine isnt THAT big of an issue?
So /o/ I have a 2014 FR-S and I was wondering what's the best android head unit. Would really like something that fully compatible with my LG v10.
I get my car detailed lol. I really like the smell of these specific scents.
>Kia is actually getting better
>Mercedes is the best German car
>look how cheap my dodge was
>He owns a 20 year old BMW, he must be rich!
>R34 is best GTR
>American cars are getting better
>Why would you want to shift yourself
>Why do you drive that 30 year old 2 door car anon
>Just get a new crossover which seats 8 people
>Just get a loan
>Get rid of that old clunker
