Does your dipstick not have a little O-ring?
Now that I think about it, I don't think it does.
It's soo obvious that thing is gonna dismantle itself hitting a bump
EVERY new German car will be a .50 on the butt to mantain/repair/actually working out how the fuck to do anything in it (can't say the same about VWs). But BMWs take the cake for being incredibly electric (if you know what I mean...), and a wallet drainer. Good cars, just too complex
Well, after 10 years of us owning it, the Chrysler has started to have problem after problem.
It is at Pep Boys as I type.
My parents want a sedan, what are some good (used) ones?
Nah, only the expensive ones. The cheaper verities of German cars are just normal cars.
It's the German condition. Treating everything as an engineering contest, leading to complication for its own sake. Now, granted, sometimes that leads to good things i.e. BeamNG, but it's not always the best idea when applied to real-life cars. As far as I know both the first DCT race car and the first throttle-by-wire road car were German, for example.
UPDATE: I can't believe I just found this series. I also found something interesting in the first video:
Note what he says about left-foot-braking and throttle cuts. Just another reason to hate throttle by wire I guess.
Looks like the new BMW does not give the users right to repair
I've seen a number of people online complaining that the new Mazda3 looks nothing like the Kai concept, so I put some comparison pics together. Personally I don't think I've ever seen any other concept that looks so close to the production version.
Seems all the changes went into making it not look like a stupid Tesla. I'm still not a fan - it looks like it is trying to be an SUV.
From the looks of it, the only things they changed are the things required to make a sensible car, plus any global homologation things like the lights.
Less flared fenders, not putting exhausts in the middle of the bumper, rims that won't buckle every time you hit a slight bump in the road, suspension travel, door handles that work, bigger rear window so that the driver can actually see etc...
I can see the similarities too. The Kai to me looks like it has more exaggerated features than the production model, like the thin headlights, smaller mirrors, fancier rims, a more streamlined body, and that sportier looking exhaust region.
The rear design I think is the most similar to each other.
Ah shit, here we go again.
Worst car in the world? I'll hit you with two.
A poorly-made, poorly-styled mess that was the end of real Pontiacs. Anemic four and six cylinder engines mated to awful transmissions and a body with the quality of a Yugo that sat at the bottom of the Mariana trench. Also FWD because god left us many years ago and gets paraded around by people who own them as a "sports" car even though this car has never heard the concept of sport in it's life.
Also who the flying hell styled this and said "Ah yes this is fine."
Other car: Anything built on the Trailblazer platform.
(Prepare for JTA to make another alt and brigade the forum again.) The TrailBlazer/Rainier/Bravada/Some saab idk/Envoy/some other crap platform is a disgrace of the SUV name. Woefully bad suspension and basically no traction means that it's about as competent offroad as a Sunbird, and every version (Except the bravada) seemed to be either absolutely disgusting to lay eyes upon or bland as white bread. Only use is the 277 horse straight six crammed under the hood, they're reliable and cheap and the aluminium 5.3 that cranked out 303 HP. Both some decent engines.
The 3 is essentially a less-exxaggerated Kai
that ginormous c-pillar hurts my eyes
i saw a pontiac g8 and a focus st WITHOUT A FARTCAN yesterday
i should go buy a lottery ticket
Personally I absolutely love the design of it
Warning Image Dump Ahead
The facelifted 2020 Nissan Patrol just got revealed, may also applies to the US Armada in the future.

Like before "City" and "Off Road" front bumpers are available:
Infotainment, now it's two screens, top for nav and apple/android carplay, and bottom for the rest of the functions:
Seats, now includes a "GTR" inspired red color:
Normal Patrol Safari is still available for 2020:
Credit goes to Motion Arabia for a lot of the pictures
That's it guys sorry for the long post, time for me to go back hibernating.
I wonder whether those interiors will make it to the UK market. Since they don't look like the sort of thing that we would typically get. I'm not sure whether that wood would appeal to many people over here.
trying to find some good sedans
came across this monstrosity
Today this car was returned after its very first rental with 1700 miles, a cracked windshield, a front end plastered with bugs, and a mysterious lack of new car smell.
I don't know how the new car smell completely dissipated after 10 days but not even a single whiff of it remains.
The life of a rental car.
"Eh, it's not mine."
I can attest to the fact that I have that mentality with rental cars as well. Jumped a Kia Soul once. Beat the shit out of an Elantra for a month after a kid hit my last Mustang with his Camry. That Elantra really was a bucket of fun, though... For a family car, anyway. The Soul was pretty okay. Once had a Nissan Altima with a CVT. I wanted to blow it up. Terrible.
