If your show car is a 4 cylinder Grand Am, the kids weren’t getting an inheritance anyway.
My 65 year old mother drives a TSX wagon. Every night, after her and my dad finish off the rest of the salad with their dinner, my dad goes for the “brownie bites” and my mom replies with a guilt-laden jab. Read more
I can only imagine how bad the Versa is given that the Sentra I had as a rental made me wonder how Nissan was able to sell any cars at all. CVT’s are horrid piles of wasted steel.
The Versa has its uses.... I remember a certain Black Friday where me and 2 other buddies waited in line to grab HDTVs on sale. Each of us picked up a 46" or 50" TV but the problem was that none of them fit in any of our cars (an e46 330i, a Mazda3, and an IS250) due to either lack of a hatch or cargo space in… Read more
I literally came to the comments section to berate the same car. I use to think “its 2018, you can’t buy a bad car these days anymore.” Until I rented a Versa for a week. I agree with all of your sentiments, it is an abomination that shouldn’t exist. I think if i was gifted one of these cars i would sell it… Read more
Oh yeah, the Versa sucks.
You say that, but next time go jump in a Versa. You’ll be ready to end it all in about 15 miles or so. I was forced into driving one for a week and it was the most miserable excuse for a car that I have ever had the displeasure of driving. And I’m not just giving it crap because I DD a BMW. I had a Malibu rental for a… Read more
Oh, so suddenly Ford cares about its cars now?
Fortunately his paper thin muscles and rubbery, calcium deficient bones came through unscathed. Don’t listen to your parents: all that time spent playing video games and living on a Doritos diet will eventually pay off.
Same, I learn to love my cars more over time. Anybody who gets tired of a car in 2 years gets no respect from me (unless the car has some major issues). It just strikes me as... entitled? I can’t really find the word.
“Hey honey, gotta work on the car today. This should only take me an hour or so, and I’ve got everything I need already.”
When my daughter was learning to drive, I insisted that she learn to drive a manual transmission car. She was (and is) headstrong so teaching her the Art of the Manual Transmission was stressful for both of us. In the end, most of the lessons came from her mom. But, as things went along, she caught on and learned to… Read more
I’ve been on Jalopnik for a while now, so I know that this is a clear case of the tire pressure being off by less than a PSI.
You know what makes you a douche? Everything you’ve said.
Your argument is valid and cogent with one exception: Artificially low speed limits.
Fuck speed cameras.
Or you can dislike speed cameras as the craven, revenue generation devices they are, while also understanding that speeding may cause you to get a ticket.
