You, along with a few others here, have done a tremendous job at pointing out what I’ve long seen as a huge disconnect between the “fanboy” way that Tesla’s vehicles and capabilities have been championed (very heavily on this site I might add) vs. the reality of how any other experienced automaker must treat… Read more
Bingo. They don’t have a fix and they don’t care to have a fix, they just want it to drag on long enough to somehow “go away.” The fact that so much of the Jalopnik fanbase seems to think that’s cool is troubling.
A mullett joke! How original!
this plus 1,000....with “2015" listed as the year, when it was already well into 2015.
Was going to say this - also the full-size cars up to ‘90, the “suitcase” under hood makes it very easy compared to most anything else I’ve ever dealt with. Same goes for blower motor, resistor, etc. All right there.
I was waiting for this one, and I know it gets a lot of hate, but at least with the LT1 B-body cars I’ve never had a problem. I have had them last 150,000 miles, while surviving water pump leaks and engine bay rinses, massive puddles, you name it.

You can dislike the car for whatever reason but many of those V6 engines made a lot of miles, and a lot of those transmissions apparently outlasted their competitors’ best efforts. making a claim that they “disappeared a decade ago” is total BS.
I do the same! I blast WD-40 after a good car wash often throughout the winter, and it has worked very well.
Well, you pretty much just shot down this flawed post. Nicely stated.
What a load of unmitigated bullshit.
Cannot agree with this one more, I’ve experienced it so many times in my life with various friends and acquaintences. Used Saabs and Volvos, especially. These are also people who love to bash/be snobby about regular cars that other people buy new.
