It's true. Does leaving a car in neutral at the light save gas? This car checks all my boxes but the more I look at it, the more I think it's ugly. Am I just a fag or is it actually ugly? Explain to me how the fuck this works.
Hatchback only, despite the Jetta
Hatchback only, despite the sedan version
Hatchback only, despite the sedan (ms6 doesn't count)
Sedan only, despite the Lancer hatchback
Started as sedan only, became available as a hatchback, went back to sedan only
Why the hell won't anyone offer the "performance" version of these cars when the sedan and hatchback versions are 100% identical in almost every way? There's other cars that don't have a hatchback equivalent like the SRT4, so that's one thing, but then even Dodge made the PTGT.

2008 golf MK5 R32.Took it in to get the timing chain done and it was off a slight rattle and was told the car wasn't putting as much power as it was meant to on my last service.
Gave the mechanics the go ahead to pull apart everything to diagnose it and yes it was the timing chain. It's out of timing, stretched. The mechanic also told me I'd need to get the camshaft adjuster done as well (part number 022109088L).
Total is around $4.8K (Ausfag dollars)
$1100 to initially break apart everything and see if its the timing chain (encase I decided to chain my mind and go somewhere else)
If it was the timing chain $3200 in total with parts and labour.
Camshaft adjuster $1400 dollaroos for the part.
I gave him the go ahead but just the need peace of mind that this does seem about right..
Only paid 14k for the car when I purchased it with 95,000ks. Currently on 155,000 (had no issues at in all those 60,000ks.

How do you find a good mechanic. I lack the tools, skills, and facilities to work on my car.
Worse, I live in an apartment and doing maintenance is prohibited.
I need to do the following maintenance items:
Oil and filter change
New brake rotors and pads all 4 wheels
Flush brake system
Tensioner pulley making noise at high RPM
Suspension makes creaking noises
Other necessary maintenance items
I'd like to find an honest and good mechanic like the car wizard.
I'm in Los Angeles and have a 2015 Camaro 1LE

Previous anon who talked about the 2005 nissan pathfinder coolant leak in the engine. About 2 quarts, the oil cooler looks dirty, but the seal was fine. I'm going to have to take apart the gasket. A compression test works to figure out which side no? I don't want to go through the effort of doing both and I'd like to inspect. My buddy just sold me this dodge pickup. I think it's pretty good but it has this dent in the back. What do you guys think and how do you think I can remove the dent? What kind of cars should cops drive? Let’s go fellow patricians. No troll pls, we would like to discuss the VW/Audi/Porsche and europoor exclusive brands sup /o/ heres a cool drawing of my dads car i did for him its a 1997 SL500
personally i own two older benz 1995 c220/1997 c230
i think theyre great cars i bought them both used.... one for 1200$/2400$ respectively and did a lot of work on both of them myself to get them better and keep improving on both
they have only get better the longer ive had them not worse
what im getting at is whats better? buying new cars or buying old cars and putting a 'monthly payment' into them to repair or keep running? theres a tipping point where its not worth fixing cars but some cars are actually worth fixing because it actually helps them stay on the road and sometimes you go a season or a year without putting money in except to fill up the gas tank I don't know where else but here. What the fuck is up with driving gloves? Most the sites that give information on what to buy also sell driving gloves and so they can't be fully trusted. Some sites that compare prices say $30 is expensive but there's sites that sell them for $150, so I'll ask a couple of questions and get it started
What is the difference between the linings? Unlined, lined, reverse stitch, the fuck does all this mean?
Nomex, leather, dragonball Z nappa leather, knit cashmere, which materials are best for which purposes?
Are knuckle holes retarded? Do fingerless still work well? Snaps or velcro?
How's the sizing on the gloves? Can you do them like standard gloves?
I'm a professional driver and drive heavy old manual trucks all day, something to grip the steering wheel that isn't hot, is thin enough to feel the wheel but doesn't get shitty rubber all over my fingers. Other glove recommendations for different applications welcome as well. I'd like to make a real general out of this instead of it just being my shitty QTDDIOT. Is the new design better than the previous Angel eyes? I heard that they changed the LED signature to be more inclusive towards their customer base.

v6 4.0 motor, truck cranks, but wont start. occasionally I cant hear the fuel pump engage when turning key, when trying to start the truck, it fires up, only to sputter out and die. issue does not occur in the morning, only when truck has been sitting in the heat for a period of time.
What ive replaced, Inertia Switch, Fuel Filter, Fuel Pump Relay.
No codes pop when I run a scanner.
Any advice is helpful How much horsepower would a guy need to have a chance running up against standard highwayfags Imagine being such a fag that you don't even own a before the season of thirty ideas coming from outside of the after a quick serve? My friend and I were out on late-night mission for some Caprisun after several hours of working in the heat and a nostalgia trip. He has a hybrid and I just recently got one as well to replace my aging daily. As we drove to the store, we talked about how normal cars or even small-medium trucks with a hybrid engine set-up would be neat, and he said "We'd have those if the first generation of hybrid drivers weren't such insufferable cunts and set the whole scene back by years."
It makes sense, but I still can't quote wrap my head around it. Hybrid forums are their own level of cancer and everyone with a profile older than 10-15 years is a know-it-all retard, so it can be seen easily in their echo chambers. Of course there is other people with their open reasons to hate, like oil companies that hate the danger to their business, boomers who are confused and frightened by anything more complex than a TV, and the fact that most hybrids are soulless eggs on wheels making enthusiasts cringe, but I would have figured a cost-saving measure like hybrids would have caught on faster. Were only just now seeing normal looking hybrids while pure EV cars still have a ways to go. The tech has been around for 20 years but hasn't changed much, meanwhile most other tech would be unrecognizable 20 years ago.
Tl;dr Did shitty hippies and smug aunts in their Prius they can barely drive cause that much damage to the image of hybrids as a whole? I’ve been on the market for a used truck that Can get me to work and back and found this guy on a lot yesterday. Not the actual pic that I just googled. It has about 160k miles on it and is being sold for 3500. Seems a little low for a 2009 no? Aside from being a manual transmission idk why it’s being sold st that price. The mileage is pretty high but compared to what I’ve seen available in my area it’s either gonna be this or a Hyundai Santa Fe at 130 miles or a v8 grand cherokee with also 130 miles on it. Any input would be appreciated Anyone in the St Louis MO area wanna meet up and catch the starlink satellites tonight at 4/5am?

Peugeot 505 hatchback, it would have break the market specially in the poorer countries, 200hp, small hatch and looks cool asf Hey 4chan, what do y'all think about getting a 2006 BMW 530d as a first car? From what I've read it's pretty much the most "reliable" engine for this model. It's 5500 euro ($6.5K) with 218K kilometers (135000 miles). I'm a college student but I have $2300 in reserve, after putting the car on the road. > Manufacturer recommends 10k oil change
> Fat slob greasy neckbeard says 3-5k
Who should I believe? And why would this woman even attend a Vintage Grand Prix event? My headlights are tinted so fkng what? Quit living your life like a bitch on the internet looking for attention... pussy probably still sleeps with a night light you got the attention you were looking for Imagine being a cuck and taking your car to a shop for an oil change. Just do it at home, it only takes 30 mins anon. What do y'all think of the new 400z? Are these good little shitboxes for the money?
Also, is the 2016 better than the 2017? The engine changed from an 1.8L to a 2.0L but HP/Torque/MPG are nearly identical. Also production moved from Korea to Mexico.
Are there any other newer shitboxes I should consider that aren't Toyota/Honda? Ford Fusion maybe? Gen Z will be the death of car culture as we know it.
Fuck zoomers. Why are good cars so fucking expensive?! is it ever a good idea to pay 8k for a dirt bike? Theres a 94 labaron convertible with a v6 near me for sale. Are these any decent? Just looking for a cheap fun project. The IS300 is the best looking sport sedan ever made.
Discuss. Why yes I buy cars new, so every carmaker panders to my tastes, how did you know? what stage clutch should I get for ~200whp celica Is it junk or can it hang with the Civic, Corolla, etc? Is the lower price worth it? Thoughts on Volvo? I live in the US in an area that of course fucking salts in the winter. Thinking about one 2015 and newer S60 or V60 AWD.

whatever How many miles do you reckon a ~2006 G35 can live for if it's been decently maintained in a town that gets some snow ? Feel free to add on how these could be improved if you know.
In this one I just hate how it covers the bottom emblem. The majority of people are now driving CUVs/SUVs. So, now it's nearly impossible to drive a normal car at night without every fag on the road blinding you with their headlights.
There's really no choice but to purchase a CUV or a Truck.
The question now is, what will you be purchasing, anon? I'll probably buy an old 4runner. Whats your dream car? why? do you think youll ever own one?
It can be as rediculus as you want as long as its your dream car.
Mine is a 1965 or 1966 Mustang Fastback. I love the profile and i dont like how the roof went all the way back starting in 1967. The 65/66 is the perfect mustang in my eyes. I hope to one day own one. Currently have a 66 coupe im working on. Yes, i know i can convert it, but i dont want to do that. What's a fun car to drive that gets excellent fuel economy? Basically something to hoon around in when bored or take road trips and not suffer a mileage penalty "I paid my twin turbo V35 in bens because fuck the government beotch" Just bought a 2019 mustang gt. Has rev match.
Teach me how to drive stick. Any special technique? What's the longest drive you've ever taken? Stories? My Mazda 2 makes clunking sounds when moving under 5mph/10kmh. It happens regardless of driving in neuter. Could it be a bearing or what? 1) Think about what sound a car makes.
2) Conceptualize this sound.
3) Get your recording device ready.
4) Vocalize this car sound, and record it.
5) Upload this recording to Vocaroo (https://vocaroo.com/).
6) Post Vocaroo.
8) Win if you get a (You).
9) Innate profit.

sucks Here's your new GT86, /o/ Do you have a 10/10 chance of eventually getting hurt driving a motorcycle? There's another thread up right now with this image,
I hated the route. It's extremely bland, tedious and boring, specially if you don't speak Russian and can't get shitfaced to make friends (because you have to drive).
So what I did was I changed the course.
What would your route look like? name stops, destinations and countries to visit/dodge on the way. Also, what about the gap? Go down India? I don't really like India, also to pick up on the other thread, what car?
I'd go with a camper with aircon, that looks weathered from the outside, but it fairly mint inside and most essentially, get a lad onboard. Why are most women shit drivers? In the 70s, if people bought something like a BRAT and removed the seats from the bed, as intended, would neighbours give them grief for it because technically you'd coconspirate with Japan dodging taxes, selling it as a passenger car?
I mean apart from buying foreign?
Chickentax was common knowledge and at some point a wide spread, open discussion, since it was an integral part of buying foreign trucks.
In general, let's talk about that and post utes. why cant I find any footage of this shit, did no sheikh or similar ever order one or the russki fgts just throw shit at the wall to see what designs generate an echo have any of you ever gone to maaco for basic body repair? i fuggged up and backed into a pole, don't want to make an insurance claim but the first body shop i went to today quoted me 2700. there are a couple spots on my rear door and the paint on the wheel arch is pretty gone. car is a 2014 jetta btw.
looking for the cheapest way to get the car sorta nice (not perfect) so i can sell it. Father gave me this deadbeat for my first car, its his, also in perfect condition because /mechanic/. How do I drive this ? BOY O BOY I SURE DO LOVE FIXING MY PIECE OF SHIT CAR ON MY DAY OFF WOO >cheap 1996 ford ‘stand v8
