Yeah, there’s bad, then there’s Hummer H2 bad. Everything feels cut rate inside, and the creaking is incessant since there is so much plastic.
Time to get a Lamborghini
Coming from a former VW family, I can wholeheartedly agree.
My first car, the absolute best and worst car I’ve owned. The ecstasy I felt whenever I got behind the wheel of this car was only rivalled by the feeling I got when the car actually started.
Vinyl blinds on sub-sunroofs ftw
I do this, but only in my neighborhood. The limit’s 20mph, so if I pop it into 3rd for maximum efficiency, the engine lugs a bit at just over idle, and I end up doing 27mph or so just to keep the engine happy. But if I leave it in 2nd, the engine revs a bit high at 25mph, so I cruise at 20-22mph, which is… Read more
I think this can apply to gas-engine cars as well. Anything past a threshold is considered fast, why does millisecond accuracy matter for something that’ll end up getting groceries?
My first car! A 1984 Mazda RX-7, that in my ownership spent more time in the shop than on the road.
Be me, 17 years old, and a $2 000 budget, browsing Craigslist, I had narrowed my search to a 1984 Celica hatch, a sensible, completely reasonable ‘96 Corolla, and this beauty of an RX-7. It was the sketchiest of the… Read more
I work as a valet, so I’m pretty familiar with these shifters.
They’re annoying, but if you just push it forward firmly, you’ll never miss park. The last notch is always park, even with traditional PRNDL shifters.
It’s funny, the new BMWs have a very similar shifter, the Priuses and the newer Mercedes also have a… Read more
The URL thing doesn't bother me too much. I'd rather see a short link than seeing 3 lines of URL.
It's the tendencies that people have when they buy them. When you spend thuosands and thousands of dollars just to impress people, that means something. If you buy an Accord and put LX badges on it, it's not as bad as buying a supercar or offroader just for cruising around town, dig?
A modern classic sports car for less than the price of a 2nd gen. MR2. Ultra fun to drive, cheap to maintain. Reliability depends on maintenance, but because these RX-7s were not boosted, they were much more reliable than the later ones, reaching 200k miles in cases. I drive one, and I cannot put into words just how… Read more
Original Mazda Cosmo (110S) had horrible fuel economy. It was the first car to have a rotary engine. I haven't seen it's bad fuel economy quantified, though. Also, the Lamborghini Murcielagos I've heard have terrible fuel economy, I think around 8 or 11 mpg.
