What mileage are you at and what year? What problems have you had in the engine and tranny?
109k and '02
Just a selenoid pack in the transmission going bad.
radiator broke, radio broke, heated leather seats broke, paint chipping away, a/c screen dead but a/c blows cold, dash clock broke, trunk hydraulic arms broke so trunk doesn't pop open anymore
engine and tranny... still perfect
>bought a car a month ago and already the head gasket is blown, electricity issues everywhere I look, something's wrong with the suspension, because the car tends to lean to one side, disk brakes are warped
Guess what car.
'77 130k miles, had to redo the entire fuel system, rewire and clean many electrical things, redo the entire cooling system, redo the entire brake system, and I still have more to do, but it was sitting for 14 years.
2013 65k nothing
2002 276k plugs and coil packs, pcv valve, just general wear items.
guess the cars, mileage is in miles not km
>power windows are a little funny
Why am I the only Chrysler owner without problems like these, apparently? My car still has the battery from the factory in 2001 and it tests for charge and voltage perfectly, even up here in the Rockies.
>no problems besides paint because lolnevergaraged.
Previous owner said that the engine had been replaced 100k miles ago when I bought it, so what's in it is at roughly 120k. I assume the tranny has been replaced because its fine and 700r4's are known for issues. Maybe it's original? Hard to tell if the 700r4 is actually a bad tranny or just that rednecks that run 50" tires are surprised when the tranny goes.
Otherwise, the only issues have been the PS pump blowing a hose off of a fitting and dumping the fluid (scary) and the pinion nut backing off, necessitating a diff rebuild.
Engine doesn't burn or leak oil and the tranny is solid.
They do when you buy German with no warranty....
>Blew a head gasket and fixed that
>One of the cams has chipped itself somehow, small chunk taken out of a lobe
>Aside from that, seems pretty good at the moment
>Spun a bearing
Things I have had to replace.
>sway bar endlink @ 60k
>battery @ 105k
>brake pads @ 147k
So far it's been really good to me, knocking down 30+mpg constantly and I'm even on every factory bulb still too.
Had to replace VANOS seals like all M54 engines
Preventatively replaced the whole cooling system with better aftermarket parts.
No actual problems with the transmission, just replaced shifter pins because the shifts got kinda stiff so now they're nice and smooth.
timing belt service just done, on its 3rd clutch, 2nd transmission, and 3rd valve cover gaskets
timing belt service at 120k, tune up, 3 ignition coils, misc maintenance. all since 80k
no idea, car has been completely restored, engine swapped 3 times, etc etc
04, steering racks completely destroyed
Trans rebuilt 250K ago
Transfer case need rebuild
Just recently flushed heater core since it was clogged with desert and wasn't heating up
Engine kept overheating or leaking random shit-sold
Transmission was on the verge of death - sold
Nothing, t-boned by some bitch-RIP
Nothing, rear ended twice by retards-RIP
Transmission rebuilt at 140k. Engine is pretty fine. Shocks/struts might need to be replaced soon. Brake cylinder has been replaced. Fixed Instrument panel soldering issues. Valve cover gasket replaced. Might need to do timing belt in a year or so.
-replaced MAF sensor at ~140,000km ($230)
-had driveshaft rebuilt at ~150,000km ($1070)
Fucking Toyota used these staked-in U-joints, so you can't even replace them when they wear out. Not to mention the lack of a grease nipple, so you can't lubricate them properly...so they inevitably wear out faster.
Toyota wanted $1300 just for the driveshaft, not including installation. I had the rear flange and U-joints replaced with proper ones, so I can now grease it at every oil change.
Other than that, car has been reliable. Bought it with 123,000km about 1.5 years ago. Starts every time, and still drove even with the messed MAF and driveshaft. Now it makes a loud groaning noise when I drive at highway speeds, but only for about the first 20 seconds and only since it's gotten cold. Probably the exhaust warming up, but idk. Don't think it's a leak because the noise wouldn't disappear if it were.
121700km now, 1998
Engine; zero problems
Tranny; blown seal & gasket, miniature leak. Replaced all seals, gaskets, fluid and filters
Pretty sure I need some new fuses because my wiring harness seems shot. Random lights keep coming on and going off for no reason. The other day my blinker alert sound just stopped working. Lights all seem fine and so does the engine so I can't be bothered to fix it.
Only thing that's normal maintenance that I listed is the timing service. You could argue one set of valve cover gaskets as well.
No idea. I bought it with 109k, knew it had a clutch job done once already. Drove fine but started having a lot of clatter from the trans. Turns out the trans was a remanufactured unit and whoever did the last clutch job really fucked some shit up, hence the 3rd one its on now. Everything seems to be good. It's a non turbo Outback, I drive it like a grandma.
>not making your children ride the bus
It's like you want them to grow up spoiled and entitled.
>common speed limits
>in the home of the Autobahn
What the FUGG. Those are cuck limits, we rarely have anything below 40kmh here in Canada, and there are more 60kmh zones than 50kmh. Everything is usually just 60 or 80.
1996 jeep xj 209k miles. the idle air intake motor (something like that) and the distributor cap both blew up in an Ikea parking lot but that's it. My brother showed up with some tools and we went to get parts. Fixed it on the spot.
50 is general inner city speed, unless specified otherwise.
30 is either in front of like kindergardens or other such areas, or in residential areas. Probably not exactly what you're thinking when hearing the words, but eh...closely placed housing, possible children jumping around.
Though we do also have a speed limit for those kinds of areas (probable that you could hit children). See pic. That's first gear and roll. Literally.
>people regularly doing 220kmh to work in the morning
>not that fast
Shut the fuck up.
Germans sound like a bunch of bitches 2bh, I'd be doing 120 through those streets kickin the ass end into stupid bread carts or fruit vendors or nuns or some shit.
'13 Subaru Impreza Hatch
Nothing major thankfully. Had a valve stuck open around 12k miles but that was covered by the warranty.
'97 Nissan Altima GXE
Tranny was having issues so I sold it before it died on me. Figured something else major could go out if I replaced the tranny.
'06 Suzuki GSX-R 600
Sold it after I had battery charging issues. My mechanic couldn't figure it out.
140k miles, put 50k on myself
I've had normal things like replacing the cooling, different seals getting replaced, but also strange bigger things, like having to replace both front axles.
I want to get rid of it because it's so slow, but it feels nice to drive.
2010 subaru legacy 3.6r limited
Consumes 1qt every 1500miles.
Something with the wiring to make the DRL's flicker
Something with the wiring to the tranny that caused the tranny temp sensor to grenade itself, but only for the night. Caused a check engine light and disabled cruise control, traction control, and various other things as my dash lit up.
Loss of power since I picked it up at 70k
A faint knocking I can hear from the side of the car after its warmed up.
132,000 on the '99 - No problems rear differential seems a little loud. Previous owner probably drove through a lot of water/mud been meaning to do its fluid
230,000 on the '83 - Engine's been replaced, factory 4-speed is still hanging on but 2nd doesn't like to go in very easy
Forgot I have two cars
2004 Jeep Grand Cherokee Laredo 4wd v8
It's got no bells and whistles and it's great. Bought it at 120k miles, now at 150k miles. Only thing I've had to do was replace a rear diff seal. It's pretty floppy and turns like shit, but dat v8.
Yeah, check fuses and grounds. Don't ever forget to check the grounds. I can't count the number of times some dumb shit buys hundreds of dollars in parts where some emery paper and dielectric grease would have done the job.
-Replaced radiator expansion tank, cracked and leaked
-replaced radiator, leaked
-replaced power steering lines
all these required to take the front of the car off except the tank
Audi ownership, guys.
Just crossed 153k. Recently had to replace a cracked radiator and now I've got a squeaking pulley somewhere on my drive belt.
182k km, 1995 model year. No engine troubles so far (got the car at 181k and it stood in a garage for like 1.5 years so I can't really speak to its reliability). The clutch slips under hard acceleration in 3rd gear and upwards though, so I'm gonna fix that soon. And the stupid retarded piece of shit aftermarket heating system the PO installed has a small leak. I'll see if I can fix it, otherwise I'll just remove the whole stupid thing.
Car's a Saab 9000 Aero btw. It has TCS too, which has also fucked up before but since I cleaned out the throttle body actuator motor it has performed flawlessly.
>complete engine rebuild cause the dealership sold it to me with a quart of oil in it
>broke down 20 minutes after I bought it on the way home. See above.
>2 new thermostats
>rewired headlights twice cause shorted
>leak in flex pipe
>LOL GM RECALLS
>has heated seats but they don't work
>pontiac g6 never again
just replaced the entire wiring harness, everything steering from wheel to wheel
will need to go through the top end/gaskets and cooling system before it hits 200k
but I'll probably sell it before that
>coolant return line
>weird thing occasionally happens where car thinks a door is open and leaves interior dome light on and frantically tries o lock doors
>low coolant light is always on
>interior leather is just shitty and has pealed off all 4 doors in some spots
oilpain was rusty and leaking
fan clutch died
other stuff was minor repairs/enhancements
01 4runner at 211k. still going strong, no problems besides some interior backlighting (radio, a/c controls) fizzling out, and a hard to remove skid plate
00 civic ex has 202k. broken stereo (one of my siblings acted like she had nigger subwoofers and blew out the speakers within 2 years of having it) but zero mechanical issues.
13 Ford escape with 60k had a recall and ford SYNC is terribad, otherwise no problems. Can actually tow a small camper which is nice.
Is the 88 a Scirocco by chance? I just bought a 16v 88 pic related. 1100$
1999 XJ Cherokee 4.0 188,xxx miles
Upgraded all injectors to 4 hole from a Neon
>small crack in fuel rail
Replaced with different style fuel rail
>misfire on cylinder 1
Replaced cap, rotor, plugs, and wires
1993 Miata 20,xxx miles
>seal blew in the slave cylinder
Replaced slave cylinder with an OEM one
2007 DRZ400SM 7,xxx miles
Sorry for abandoning the thread. It's a 2.5 straight six E39. And yes I knew electricity was kinda fucked up and disks were warped, but I picked it up for 1000 euros so who cares. Now the head gasket is what fucked me over.
>It's like you want them to grow up spoiled and entitled
Implying the majority of /o/ isn't manchildren and NEETs themselves
>left front blinker stopped working
>button for sunroof fell off
>change drawer is loose
No major issues, just laughable fit-n-finish
>bought it at 163k
Only alternator and some kind of interior computer so far
Yeah. Started its life looking just like yours. Not so much anymore.
>no problems except for a transmission mount bushing, everything else will be preventative maintenance
Electrical problems is all since I've owned it, I've got a short somewhere and it's draining my battery.
Other than a fuel pump that needed replacement when I moved to higher altitudes
210k ausfag km for you yankydoodles i think thats like 100k miles?
No problems with engine apart from broken maf and plug, tranny is perfect.
89k and 2000
Alternator went out
Replaced leaky tail shaft seal.
$1200 replace computer and a sensor
Was the most I spent on it, only paid $3500 when I first got it.
Love this truck, but it feels sort of wasted on me, I work in IT and have no need to haul stuff or carry anything. It did help while moving houses.
>problems have you had in the engine and tranny?
Neglect from old owners means theres just leaky pcv and vac lines.. and a few stripped bolts. And the fucker cranked the valve cover bolts way too much and cracked it at most of the bolts.
No issues. Really want to drain and refill the fluid but theres like 4 plugs and only one is okay to remove and I can't find solid info.
engine has caught fire twice, replaced with a 4 bolt main target master, caught fire again, stopped using quadrojet and haven't caught fire since. Fiberglass is ruined because of the fires though, need to replace the hood again. also everything that can melt in the engine compartment has at least once.
2004 Cavalier, approaching 130k miles.
Several minor problems with body wiring and cabin components have cropped up since 80,000 miles or so, but zero issues with the actual engine or transmission so far. I had a fuel pump go bad at 100,000 miles and a intake air temperature sensor connector go bad around 90,000 miles, if either of those counts as an engine problem. Pretty much zero problems up to that point. I'm still on the factory clutch.
