So my '99 subaru impreza outback is nearing it's end with almost 400k miles, and I'm looking for a replacement for under $20k that will have a similar lifespan.
I originally was looking at getting another impreza, but then the new civic caught my eye. Aside from awd, is there any reason to pick the impreza over the civic? Are there any other long lasting cars for that price range?
ITT: Worst car interiors
>97 Camaro 30th anniversary
Take an already shit interior, and give it white leather seats
I have an 04 Civic and its body is fucked. Huge scratches, large dents, it just isn't pretty. Only 114k miles on it though, and its mechanically sound.
How can I get the most value out of this thing? Part it out?
Does anyone have experience with the tracking devices that insurance companies offer now? I'm considering it for the baseline 5% off, but the privacy concerns plus the idea of them being mandatory and negatively impacting rates in the future worry me.

What car did you want when you were younger /o/?
How'd it work out for you?
Should i get a miata or a 350z /o/?
Having trouble deciding which car I should pick from the three here, got about 60k saved up, looking into a Lexus IS 350 f sport, Mitsubishi Lancer Evo, or Subaru WRX STI?
Which one do you like better?
Naw. Go buy this if you want a good wipe
>need a car for about 10-12 months
>want something fun
>want something cheap
What should I get? I am thinking about a MX-5
MX-5s really aren't 'cheap' anymore. You've got two options in that category.
A clean, stock, decently running NA will set you back about $4000-$5000.
If you're looking for one at $2000-$3000, expect it to be in shit condition or slammed/stanced to all hell.
Sorry man, you missed that boat.

Why can't Euros into Manual?
It's actually really funny. Jap and euro performance cars are usually automatic while many american performance cars are available with a manual transmission only. Meanwhile euro and jap commuter cars are offered in manual while most american commuter cars are auto only.
My family is helping me pay for an newish economical full size sedan. We were looking at Fusion, Accord and Avalon hybrids, but found an an Acura RLX Hybrid in our price range that we all really like. I didn't even know Acura had a hybrid sedan and had until today never sat in an RLX but it was comfy as fuck and drove surprisingly well. So far it seems pretty awesome, but too good to be true.
Anyone on here have any experience with an RLX hybrid?
>Don't buy a new luxury car, but a shitbox on Craigslist instead
I really like what they tried to do with the RLX Hybrid, but honestly for the amount you're spending on it you're better off getting a lightly used Lexus LS460 instead
Would you rather have a car that looks ugly but unique, or inoffensive but boring?
I like my cars, like I do OP's mom.
Not the best looking, but dat tongue game tho...
Do rich people make fun of their friends when they can only afford the base model of a supercar?
>Do rich people make fun of their friends when they can only afford the base model of a supercar?
There's actually a lot of rich people that hide their power levels. They want to be part of society but not become a target due to their wealth.
Mercedes-Benz AMG GT C Roadster
>550 HP and 502 lb-ft torque
The car originally hits above 200mph(322 kph) but the speed is governed to 196mph(315 kph). The future Black Series Editions will have a 200mph+ top speed.
>0-60 in 3.2s
All AMG GTs are powered by the same twin-turbocharged 4.0L V8.

The three contestants are:
2001 VW Lupo 1,4 MPI
1992 Toyota Starlet 1.3 XLi (P8)
1997 Honda Civic 1.4i S (6th Gen, 3-Door Hatchback)
It's for my girlfriend and will only be used in and around a bigger city. She's not that talented when it comes to driving, but she's not a car abuser by definition.
Which and why?
Mileage on each? Does any of those need work done to it, or new tires or something?
Assuming you're in Germany, I'd say Lupo. Most recent of the three, parts aplenty. The Yota and Honduh might be more less prone to failure, but some parts can be hard to come by due to the sheer age and fewer exemplars of those.
All three have a fresh safety inspection valid for the next 2 years. Germany ist korrekt.
I allready drove a very similar Honda and the exact same Toyota and both are very decent cars, espacially when it comes to fuel consumption.
The only Lupo I ever drove was a GTI, which is fun, but too expensive.
Yeah i know what you're thinking, but my aunt drove her Starlet...

>have brand-new Ram 1500 (5.7 hemi V8)
>engine sputters and shuts off immediately after starting unless I rev it a couple of times
So are these rebadged Civics any good or are they as bad as the rebadged Accords?
Which is engine is better and why?
if you even have to ask dont buy either stupid fuck
get an rb faggot, 4 bangers are for women and children
i wandered into 'the ghetto' where all the burningman workers live and saw a lot of vehicles that looked like this. infact lots and lots of couches on roofracks
What's the worst damage you've done to your car because of some small mistake?
I didn't close the hood enough and it didn't latch, just one fo those things, you don't think I should double check the hood to make sure I closed it, you just shut it and get in
Flew open when I was driving, cracked my windshield, hood ruined, embarrassing
Was replacing the parking brake shoes on my old Volvo 240. Got called into work after I got the old shoes out, so I tied the end of the cable up out of the way and put the wheels back on. It wiggled loose on the highway and got caught on the inside of the rim. It ripped off at the arrow and the end of the cable was ricocheting all over the inside of the room, making a hell of a racket.
Ended up snipping the cable and just parking in gear lol. The car was only worth a few hundred dollars.
Madwoman behind the wheel
Muscle on a budget, is it possible?
Want to upgrade from my crown vic for sheer speed.
Newfag alert. Can anyone direct me to a good website to buy some 14x6 rims for a P195/70R14? I can't seem to find anything. When I type in 14x6, it sends me to 15 inch rims for some odd reason.
just picked up a 96 m3 to setup as a weekend toy/track car, its bone stock right now any recommendations or tips for a good track setup?
Replacing everything that's made out of rubber and cracking/worn out with stuff that's not worn out. So this means LCAs (bushing/balljoints), rear trailing arm bushings, motor/transmission mounts, shocks, and tierod assemblies. Along with a few minor gaskets (likely valve cover and oil filter housing).
And while you're there it'd probably be a good idea to drop the oil pan and do a pan baffle, safety wired oil pump nut, reinforced oil pickup, and front subframe reinforcement plates.
90% of the work you'll be doing on it will be just replacing...

>ITT: childhood heroes you should have never met
Deloreons are cool. Only people living under a rock, wouldn't know that they are actually horrible to drive. Though you drive it anyways, because it has a giggle factor and you get attention.
I wouldn't take a long trip in one though.
/o/ - Auto
does "Auto" refer to AUTOmatic shifters, right?
Yep, considering autos are already superior for street use
For your area, what is the worst piece of shit poverty car most commonly seen? for me, its these, or maybe a dying ford focus.
If they have a small oxy/fentyl dealing operation or a relative just died, they usually roll in a chrysler 300, mustang, explorer, or older german luxury car
>he believes japanese cars are superior
its especially funny when retards buy nissan/toyota for any type of offroad use.
holy shit please don't do this
Im thinking about getting a Tundra. Whats the best color for it?
Saw a forest green one the other day, looked really sharp
I've been driving a lincoln since.... long before anybody paid me to drive one.
I didn't do it to be cool. I didn't do it to make a statement.
I just liked it.
