I’m not a superstitious person. Not by a long shot. But I was reluctant to post about my reliable car thinking it would break down afterwards. Before I go any further let me tell you that it wasn’t the head gaskets (at least not yet).
I don’t understand all the hate for SUVs. As someone who loves practical vehicles, I can’t even tell the difference between station wagons and SUVs. And who doesn’t love station wagons?
The Subaru was the 5th car that I checked out on Craigslist. It started off the same as all the others. I texted and asked if they were a dealer. I don’t mind buying from a dealer, I just want to know up front. Then I asked if the car was still for sale and when I can I see it. I missed out on a sweet Mustang GT…
A little over a year ago I asked Oppo
to help me choose a car and you guys came up with some great
suggestions. I didn’t listen to you though and I bought this instead.
I was going to post about it, but the very same week I bought mine, 2
other oppos bought Outbacks as well. And theirs were much nicer.
I had my Mazda5 for about a month before I realized that it is not a minivan. It’s almost a minivan; maybe a micro-van. I think in other parts of the world it belongs in a class of vehicle called MPVs but I’m not sure if that classification includes minivans as well.
Under_Score’s post from earlier today has me thinking I might be a tad obsessive with washing my cars. Even though both our cars are garage kept and we keep low miles on them I still wash them about every 2 weeks.
This is mostly for His Stigness, but maybe other Oppos know something about it as well. A long time ago Florida had emissions testing and my mom’s 2 year old Saturn somehow failed. The technician showed me that it was just a little bit out of range and told me to go to any auto parts store and buy an emissions…
If my memory serves me correctly, which
it usually doesn’t, some 6 million people fled the great state of
Florida before the big storm. My wife and kids and me made it 6
million and 4. We had never done a road trip before so we decided to
make a vacation out of it.
I need a little help finding the perfect car. Right now my wife and I share a 2014 Mazda5 but I want a second car for work. I work so close that we don’t need a second car but I think it would make our lives a little easier. We have a budget of $4,000 in mind, but I would go as high as $5,000 for the right car.
Ulaanbaatar is the capital and largest city in Mongolia. To fully get an idea of what it’s like to drive (and park) there you need to understand a few things about the city’s history. Mongolia used to be a Soviet satellite and most of the city was designed and built in the Soviet style during this time.…
I have questions about my father in law’s high mileage (140,000km) automatic transmition HR-V. It’s a 2004 with a D16(W1?) and possibly a CVT.
It Idles rough when in Drive with the brake applied. The tach jumps up and down approximately 2 - 300 rpm, the whole car shakes, and it feels like it wants to shut off. Under…
As Mongolia has the honor of being on Jalopnik's hardest countries to drive across list, I usually don't do any driving while I'm there visiting the in-laws. Actually, the real reason I don't drive in Mongolia isn't because of the road conditions, it's the other drivers themselves. Ulaanbaatar is an overly congested…
