Admittedly, I only covered about a fifth of the ring road (plus the requisite basic tourist Golden Circle), but considering you can drive around the entire country in like 16 hours, seeing plenty and breaking it up into manageable chunks isn’t impossible. Read more

Eh, you’re not really doing more than 100km/h in Iceland - I rented a 1.2L Chevy Spark, and that was plenty (except one hill to one specific lookout that was both steep and covered in potholes).

And yet they probably buy gas, which has tax built into the price per gallon, probably several times a week without thinking about that?

Eh, a lot of Toronto is really suburban, depending on what neighbourhood the driver lived in, it’d be very easy to never go anywhere that didn’t have a parking lot.

I’ll say this much - so many McMansions look weirdly desolate inside, because how do you fill that much space? Like, there’ll typically be that one room with a handful of Rubbermaid containers, one lone armchair stuffed in a corner, and a folding table, or something like that. These people clearly don’t have that Read more

‘04 Hyundai Accent. For a stint, I had to drive for work, and was spending about 4 hours a day in the car. My prior car was a lease I had won, and was due for return, and my then-fiancee (now wife) suggested I just take her car, which she wasn’t driving anymore. So for starters, it’s a Hyundai from the pre-adequate Read more

I test-drove one of the next-gen Micras when they hit the Canadian market in 2014. It was...fine, but slightly overpriced if you wanted a manual and A/C (thanks to mild discounting and 0% financing, the Mazda2 I ended up buying cost me about the same as the Micra would - I regret nothing).

Given that it’s Aykroyd very specifically, I’d say extremely high. His arcane, wonkish obsessions have informed a ton of his work.

Another of my replies is hidden in the greys, but I’ve worked as a delivery driver, on a couple of pre-set routes stretching across an entire county, and only the longest route exceeded 200km/day. Furthermore, I currently work in a fleet department - while Transit-type vans aren’t our specialty, we do have a few Read more

You’ve got to take the buyer into account though - private vehicles are bought by the same sort of people who’re convinced they need AWD because sometimes snow is a thing. Fleet vehicles are bought by someone who stares at spreadsheets all day long, and can tell you exactly how their vehicles get used, and exactly Read more

I worked occasionally as a courier for a school board while in college, and even on the routes that went to the far reaches of the region, didn’t do much more than 200km (120 miles a day). Urban use would *absolutely* be far less than this. Plus, there’s got to be enough jobs where the van is just the cube that holds Read more

Renewed? It must be a misunderstanding, it must be some kind of mistake.

Because after decades of reliable EFI, carbs are a pain in the scrote when you just want a classic car for that handful of nice summer weekends? And sure, you could just LS-swap, but this might take even better to sitting in a garage all winter.

The internet backs up that Song 2 was used for a Nissan commerical, but it looks like for the 2000 Sentra (as it came out well after the original SE-R.

Hang on now, Ford well over a million 3rd gen Focii in the US alone, and even on something like that, I’d be astounded if the automatic take rate was less than 95%. Lump in Fiestas (and about a dozen other models that used it in some capacity) and international sales, and a million DCT’s is pretty reasonable. Read more
