What speed are you going at? I leave it in 6th on the highway going between 70 and 80, often in cruise control. This puts my RPMs around 2.2k - 2.5k. I didn’t pay much attention to my OBD boost gauge, tho.
I hope its new driver takes better care of it than she did her last car.
Nice work! Last time I had to drill out a bolt (which was also the first time) it took me uh like a week (because I’m dumb and didn’t use left-hand bits).
We must come up with a way to resurrect people just so we can all tell this person what an asshole they are.
You need three decals of a Tercel with the hood open for the side of your Lexus
☹️ Sorry to hear this
Poor doggos! I hope you’re all safe and sound tonight, and I hope they don’t get too scared.
Oh dang, that is very tantalizing. Right there, but out of grasp.
Ugh, sounds annoying.
Oh nuts, no. I am a tool smuggler now I guess.
The main wrinkle is that I’m never there for very long outside of work, and I’m in Irvine, but we should try to make something work. It’s also possible that I’ll be driving down instead of flying next time.
Oh, also, when I called the shop to get a quote on replacing the steering lock, I asked if they needed to order the part, and they said that if they didn’t have any, someone in town would and they could get it same day (this is in Portland, OR). So parts availability doesn’t seem like an issue.
Hi! I bought exactly this car three months ago (though with the six-speed manual). I’ve been very pleased with it: it’s much more comfortable and sportier than my last car, and the MPG are decent (19-20 for full city driving, 27-28 full highway). It corners super flat; I’ve taken it around twisties at 20 or so over,…
Hold up, 36 highway mpg?! I barely get 28. I’ve only used premium (92), tho. For my next multiple-tank road trip, I’ll be trying regular.
Can confirm, he is the spitting image of a scoundrel
Dangblast! That sucks. I hope you find another promising candidate soon.
Oh no, now I’m worried for the safety of Oppo’s most notable Forte owner.
Wow, it took me a few seconds to realize the last photo was of a brake rotor.
Just got back from the dog park:
Someday I’ll wash my car. I swear
