My mom will think you’re super-rich. No one else will. They’ll think you wanted a nice but modest car that’s a step up from a Camry. Take it. Enjoy it. Sell it if you don’t like it, split the proceeds with your dad if you feel weird about it.
Doesn’t matter, free car
Free car is a free car. A free Mercedes is worth the probably rare “fancy car comment. Plus its not like the C class is really that uncommon in any big city.
My 2004 AWD Chevy astro van floods if you short start it. That is to say crank it but let off the key too soon. Then if you put the gas to the floor and crank it (just like carb) it clears itself up and starts. I didn’t know you could flood a fuel injected engine.
my passenger side headlight points upward the more i drive, every so often i have to push the front of it down a little bit
With my PT. I’ll start with the backseats, that have no headrests, nor provisions for headrests. (As I’ve been told this is a sign of an 01 base model, 01 Limited’s had rear headrests, that were the same as the front seats, this was quickly changed for smaller headrests in later years). The driver’s side mirror glass…
2016 Corvette Z06. The doors automatically lock when I shut them and they key is with me after a few seconds. Problem is, if I get gas it locks while I’m pumping and the alarm goes off if I shut the fuel door and the doors are locked. I have to leave a door ajar while I pump gas or remember to unlock it again before I…
Decades ago (decades? damn) I bought a “new” VW GTI 16v. It had been a demo, had 600-ish miles on the clock, but I got a great deal.
The firing order, front to back, of a Pentastar V6. One diagram online says, facing from the front of the car, cylinder 3 is on the left and 4 on the right. Another says the opposite. The only thing that is certain is that I have a misfire on cylinder 3. Do I buy two sparks and two coil pack or just singles? It’s a…
The biggest mystery about my ‘90 Miata is: how does a car with a 1.6L four-banger weighing 2200 pounds manage to use so much fuel? I’ve never seen better than 32 mpg, and that was on a long freeway trip where I was consciously trying to save fuel.
Now I feel conscious about procrastinating the serpentine belt change my Stealth...
The heater controls in my Buick Apollo. They’re sliders that seemingly do nothing and everything at the same time. Push it to ‘off’ the blower motor runs push it to ‘vent’ the blower motor runs. It always runs, high or low as soon as you turn the key “click whrrrrrrr”.
In my 2016 Camaro, if I open the door and lock it, I can no longer pop the trunk on the door. I discovered this after locking the door after opening...but still needing to get in the trunk, really strange and I’m not sure why that is...and a friend’s 17 Camaro doesn’t, it’s really weird.
My 82 D150 only has a five digit odometer, I assume it has only rolled over once, but you can never be sure.
151k miles on my Range Rover and it’s only been to the shop like 3 times.
I’m guessing that the poor schmuck who bought my Mazda6 after I traded it in will wonder:
These are killer bees, not honey bees. A man-made invasive species. Get off your high horse.
Yeah they weren’t honey bees you fuckstick. They were the type of bees helping to displace honey bees.
The ATS is already pretty dang small for a sedan. I wouldn’t want to sit behind myself in it (I’m 6'1) on a road trip, and people taller than me don’t get a lot of legroom in the passenger seat with the baby-seat behind it. It babies, but not greatly.
Maybe the new small car will be an ATS Wagon or fastback... as is…
