Wow, was the car undriveable when you got the drivetrain error? Just took possession of the i3 today, first thing I noticed was gas tank cover stuck, though openable with green latch, needless to say noone at the Carvana knew how that worked. So far I have driven it to drain the battery enough to kick the Rex in emission mode. It sounded a bit louder than another Rex engine on a i3 I had test drove before. Other than that it drives smooth, handling the nation capitol fresh pot holes and uneven roads pretty well. HK sounds is a bit tiny but bass is deep and accurate, my kids fit in the back.
The idea that the options are either an EV that is more expensive than an ICE carbon copy because the battery is more expensive or a hybrid is fairly retarded. They could make platform dedicated EVs and have their own specific desirable characteristics that are far and beyond similarly priced ICE cars while being lesser cars in other areas. That hypothetical 70 kWh, 3s to 100 kph, $60000 BMW would crush their ICE version in a drag race and have its ass handed to it on a race track. It would still have its own appeal to sell and wouldn be comparable nor would it be EV version of that car that is $20000 more expensive because batteries, it would cost the same.
For example I was interested in a 2010 2013 Toyota Avalon. But when I looked up the TSB I found they have poorly designed routing for the hose that carries engine coolant. The hose rubs against the engine, gets hot, wears down, and eventually breaks open. Once it breaks open the car loses all its coolant and the engine overheats within 3 minutes. Destroyed engine in 3 minutes. on a Toyota. not something you EVER expect to happen to a Toyota. But this specific model and year has this problem.
I had all the items reviewed while getting oil change. As I said, most are inspect items, not actual replacement. I excluded other things like brake fluid changes, air filter changes, suspension check\lubrication not 바카라사이트 because they don get done, but because they are NOT unique to ICE cars. Much of the inspect\consumables are still there for EVs. Motor oil is the big difference.
Less Room to Swing a CatThe power unit was to have been a cutting edge rotary Wankel engine purchased from General Motors. The car was designed around that engine. Unfortunately GM withdrew, as the Wankel was proving neither reliable nor fuel efficient, and in the wake of the 1974 Arab oil embargo this was now an issue. The engine also produced high amounts of N0x gasses that would not comply with the new emissions regulations. straight six under the hood. It was a tight fit but they squeezed it in. This change compromised the interior space and effectively rendered it a four seater as it necessitated the use of a drive tunnel to get the power to the rear wheels which took up space in the rear seating area. The Wankel which would have been front wheel drive would have needed no such tunnel. The car was still roomy but not as roomy as it might have been.
I guessing OP is either not understanding what really took place (most likely), or is not explaining the situation correctly, because it doesn make sense. That exactly why I have little doubt that this first time buyer cosigining with boyfriends is in the wrong, not a franchised dealership of a heavy leasing brand who ultimately has to approve and finalize these deals, and are “on the hook” for everything they contractually enter.
Seats that tend to fit well in the middle of back seats are the Sunshine Kids/Diono Radian, Britax convertibles, Graco MyRide, and Evenflo Triumph 65 or Momentum. Seats that allow bracing (forceful touching of the front seats) are Britax seats and SKJP/Diono Radians. Other seats that may fit well are the Maxi Cosi Pria 70 and First Years True Fit.
People don’t like to factor in depreciation into annual expenses thinking it comes into play only when you sell. But for a very good reason, in accounting, depreciation of assets are accounted each year. So in the case of a brand new BMW (or any other similar brand) your expenses in the first year can very well be almost a 100K.
If you’re a motoring hooligan hell bent on grabbing the ring by the scruff of its neck and showing it who’s boss, this course is probably not for you. But if you are smart enough to know that this is a circuit that demands the utmost respect and learning, then Fascination Nordschleife should prove highly rewarding.
While I am sure there will be mark ups on this car initially, I don think they will last if you willing to call around. The previous GT4 was only fetching $5 10k over initially. Porsche already said this isn going to be a limited production car and can be built on the same line as the 911 instead of taking up space on the normal GT limited capacity production line.
Can be expensive. If you want to get multiple options, then the price of this car can skyrocket. With all of the options I wanted, the price of my vehicle jumped by over 30%! Granted, it was worth it, but it made it the most expensive car I have ever owned. So be prepared to spend a lot of money if you want various options to make your car unique.
Remember when X was supposed to be the launch engine of the 2019 Mazda3? A year later we still have no idea if and when it coming to America. Got a feeling that it just not economically viable in markets where they are still meeting regulations (they specifically said that there was no rush to bring it to America because gasoline is cheap and people don care).
Not to mention with a race, while some factors may be foregone, it also a crapshoot, sometimes you lose for factors out of one control even if you did everything right in theory.But, we see what happen. But it takes more than a season to really have a car do well.But I crazy so what would I know?This is a very closed minded and uninformed comment.
How They’re ConstructedCabinet box The cabinet box is generally touted as “all plywood” and it is. However, the plywood itself is purchased with low price in mind, so it is common to experience peeling veneers and severely warped panels. Furthermore, the interior coatings used to finish the plywood are of low quality, so the interior generally has a ‘starved’ and coarse look/feel.
That fame for reliability has made BMW motorcycles the default choice of the hard riding tourist for decades; and now celebrated models from the “airhead” era as pre 1995 machines with twin cylinder, air cooled engines are known are steadily rising in value as a growing number of enthusiasts come to appreciate their combination of classic looks, superb engineering and continued suitability for long distance riding.
I see this problem like the housing problem. People without houses want cheaper places to live. Everyone wants more housing but no one wants them to build it near them. Point is unchecked immigration would lead to a lot of issues that the people pushing for it won have to deal with so they are ok with it.
The summit looks good, but most people are overhyping it a lot. BMW for instance mentions on stage that their proof of concept was succesful, but the future will be long and complicated as Germans (BMW) are very skeptical of new technologies. The concept looks great, but it is not much different from many prototypes on other chains.
The thing about PHEVs though is that they are mostly a cheap way for manufacturers to get around emission standards by being able to leave the ICE off for a good part of the test cycle, as well as making their cars useable in EV only zones (in some european cities).
You already have a head start with no cc or student loan debt, so stay ahead of game. Also build up a rainy day, emergency fund of liquid investments, you never know when you will get sick/ loose a job. Besides that, buying a 45 65k car on an 80k salary would not be advisable unless OP had significant savings.
It’s the same story with the MK4 Roadster as with the hot rod above: All you need is an engine (Ford 289/302, 351, or 4.6l 4V V8), transmission, rear end, paint, wheels, tyres, batter, and fuel pump. All in all, this is a great little bit of kit for the money, and it’s backed up by professional service, outstanding quality, and a great price! As with the ’33 Hot Rod, expect to pay upwards of $25,000 for a completed car.
So is that worth it to you? There no right answer to that; it fine if that is worth it to you. But that how you have to look at it. Saying this would be more reliable than my Ranger (which you not doing) is just denialism. It not real. You could rebuild the damn Ranger from scratch for less than what you lose on the BMW. If you do it I would suggest paying it off as quickly as possible. Definitely do pursue the credit union route and try to get a better rate, possibly with a shorter term.
Jack grabbed her ever present “camera” and fixed it floating before moving in between it and the suit. She spread her arms wide, saying “Here it is! The V 22 Catsith Egretta! Obviously it’s not completely finished, I’m waiting on some decals and have some detail parts to add but the suit is technically complete so I was planning to test it today! I always find that GBN helps show flaws in my work that wouldn’t otherwise be noticeable.” Then the energetic streamer bounced back over to her recording interface and reoriented it above her shoulder.
Has the EGR valve been modified. Has the DPF been removed or bypassed.If it lowered, walk away. Has the Timing Belt been replaced and when.TBF, if you lasted this long in a 05 Megane and haven despaired at the faults with that car, an E90 is a nice car. Go simple though.
Favorite older car under $20,000Jump to Last Post 1 12 of 12 discussions (16 posts)I’m looking into buying myself another car, as my current car is starting to show its age. I’d like to buy an older car, at least 15 years old, but I still want something interesting and in good condition, not just some old beater.
Recently, as my boyfriend’s lease term ended this month, we went in to talk to the finance manager about our trade in process (salesperson no longer works there). He said he would try and work on it and to come back. He set us up with a salesperson and we got nowhere. Basically, they screwed us. Even though we negotiated the price of my car before figuring we needed to combine lease payments, I am now stuck with a remaining payment of $825/mo for my car alone as my boyfriend had to trade in his car. Somewhere in the mix of paperwork it was calculated to have my boyfriends value over the 36mo instead of 15. Instead, we should have had a much lower required monthly payment and paid over that amount for the difference of my boyfriends car during the 15mo so when he turned his in my payment would have been $400.
What about searching someone car for illegal contraband? That is connected to having a driver license as well but it still illegal to do so without their explicit consent or a warrant. This isn any different. You can just sign away your rights. This is held up in contract law all the time.
In stark contrast to the Jaguar, we have the Porsche Cayman R. Porsche is synonymous with motorsports racetrack performance, and that is exactly what the Cayman R is built for. When building the R version of its popular Cayman sports car, Porsche decided to cut weight instead of adding lots of power to achieve the desired performance goals. The Cayman R is the only member of this list under 3,000 pounds and weighs in at more than 1,000 pounds lighter than the XK R. The Cayman and the Jag are perfect foils for each other; the XK R is everything that the Cayman is not, and vice versa. While the Jaguar is immensely powerful and luxurious (aka heavy) the Cayman is underwhelming on the spec sheet (more than 200hp fewer than our winner) but is extremely focused and lightweight. One has only to sit inside the cockpit to know that the R is all about performance. To save weight, Porsche replaced traditional door handles with fabric straps. The sport bucket seats hold the driver in place during hard cornering and save 26 pounds. Air conditioning is an optional extra. On a $60,000 Porsche!
My P100D had 2″ curb rash on one wheel, scuffs on the aluminum sill plate from shoes, scratches in the trunk plastic, tiny pinhead size ding on the trunk lid. I would put that kind of wear on it myself in a few miles so I didn bother to bring it up. $68,000 discount from original price, about $28 48k discount from current price since they lowered the prices in March and give L for free to current owners.
The Verdict: In addition to the fantastic engine, the Celica has all the practicality of a hatchback. It is also front wheel drive. Although this is less fun than an RWD sports car, your parents (if you’re still in high school) and insurance agent will probably appreciate it! Another thing to keep in mind is the legendary reliability of Toyota cars. You can count on this lasting well past 100k miles without anything more than oil, brake pads, and tires. If something does go wrong, the parts for this car are cheap.
