2008 Toyota Tundra Crewmax
That sweet sweet V8
Great Towing Capacity
Has 206k on it and has had no major problems.
Holds resale value well
Designed with durability in mind.
Parts are expensive and not very plentiful
15 Mpg -_-
Working on it is difficult
Overall its a great truck and I woould buy it again.

Octane.....And the mileage isn't even that great to begin with

My average experience at the gas station is if I pay less than $50, gas is cheap...The price hike is insane, and on top of that I refuse to go to the shit tier gas stations too

Its a 1998, so no issues with biodegradeable wiring
I do everything myself, and everything is easily doable. What type of costs are you talking about?
I have done a few repairs, but most of those have either been caused by the rust or neglect from previous owner
I hate the sedan models of the Focus/Fiesta. Always felt like they were an afterthought once they finished the hatches and they threw something together so they could market it as one.
Would probably get a Fiesta if I wanted a Ford though
>Comfy heated leather seats
>Somewhat sporty but still good dd
>Not a Type S(Hate this the most)
>Several door dings(Getting this fixed soon, is there any good diy ways to do this?)
My gf wanted a Hatch... ended up getting a Sedan because visibility is a lot better. The upward swoop makes it hard for me to see... at 6'1". It's not easy to see out the rear areas of the hatch
11 Mazda 6

No seriously, other than your typical bolt ons, there is just nothing.
>Handles surprisingly well for a truck (RWD is a hidden bonus)

>Open diff and only 2WD
>4cyl doesn't have the best MPG (27 is my combined avg)
>6' "Long Bed"
I like them. Good little cars, just hate the look of that sedan. The ass just looks so out of place. I heard the lower tiers of the Fiesta are still a blast to drive. Especially if you have manual.
Yeah everyone seems to hate the sedan version, I've gotten used to it however and I actually don't mind.
The sedan is more convenient though IMO, trunk adds a lot more useful space than the hatch. The fiesta is already a small car so its not like I'm going to be shoving any tall/long objects in there anyways.
It's slowish but I don't understand how 29 average is bad compared to other equal sized subcompacts.
It's an excellent car. /o/ can hate mazda all they want, but ever since my Miata when i turned 16, I've had a thing for mazda. I'll eventually get a project car to reckless drive with.
Sometimes you have to adult, not everyone likes to benchrace.
The guy lives in Cali, probably a lot of stop and go. City mpg gets fucked by traffic and lights, there was a guy saying he only gets 13mpg city in his LS400 the other day.
I wouldn't say 27 city and 33 highway is terrible...
plus it only costed 13k which is 4k under sticker price so it should pay for itself quickly
Yeah, Bay Area really sucks with that type of stuff.
i honestly didnt even consider a 6 speed swap, really seems like itd match up well and pricing isnt that much worse than a full tranny build which is what i was planning on doing anyway.
did you ever have any issues with the rear air suspension? the more im reading the more scared i get yet i havent experienced any problems with mine at all..yet
>gets 13mpg city in his LS400 the other day.
nigger u wut
either that retard cant into math or he is literally flooring it everywhere.
i averaged about 19 city in mine and i wasnt exactly babying it
Seriously, this car is perfect
Could be worse, I visited family in L.A. last year and my aunts friend said he was only getting low-mid 20s in his Optima Hybrid.
>I live in retiree purgatory
I averaged just over 34mpg last year in my 2.0L 5spd Focus, obviously the city driving the guy does has a big impact on his mpg.
He said it was "in assrapingly bad traffic" IIRC. I used to average 21mpg in my '95 Town Car.
It's designed as an accessible everyday driver that does everything you want, its a "jack of all trades and master of none" type of vehicle. So for what it is it isn't a terrible car by that measure alone.
The standard 1.6L is kinda dated but it still competes well with most of the subcompact segment. If you really wanted super gas mileage you could just option the 1.0L Ecoboost which goes above 40 mpg city.
Around the bay area the only thing you can do is make sure to be off the road in rush hour.
Infrastructure just isn't designed to deal with the influx of silicon valley workers coming in/out of the area.
I average 22 mpg city/highway mixed. 30 Mpg highway it it's a fucking amazing road trip car.
Given how spacious and big the car is, and not being a duck economy sedan, I'll take it. I have no idea what you talking about with the interior, have you been in a 2012 + ? Super comfy senpai
>it's a wagon

>stock 6cd changer stereo is nice.
>that it's not 4wd
>when using california fuels, even if I hypermill and mix a gallon of premium into the tank I can't break 18mpg average.
>the 6cd changer stereo eventually broke and it's 600 bucks to replace it new.
>Amazing gas mileage like 35+ city and 40+ highway, even going wot all the time
>Ultra tiny being the 3 door so it's piss-easy to park and maneuver
>I happen to like the 80's boxiness, it's definitely not for everyone though
>Jesus Christ why does everything keep breaking
>I would probably die in any accident that is greater than 5mph or from the side
>it's too light for its own good, passing semis on the freeway is a harrowing process as are windy days- fucking car gets pushed around the road like crazy
Overall would recommend. Is fun.

The car is the anti-theft system. I had one for a rental and it's the shitiest car I have ever driven, and I owned a Chevette and a K-car.

>automatic not the worst possible, but still has lots of autobox problems
>ALL the usual Saab quirks.
honestly like just dont have heavy keys and the car will stop thinking its being stolen. My last malibu for some weird reason deactivated itself or went into some sort of mode that never tripped itself again. Turn the car on and the theft light was just always on. Everytime you turned it on and it started up every single time.
My current one the light goes off and on and trips like once a month and you gotta sit in the parking lot looking like an idiot with the key in the ignition waiting for that damn theft light to stop blinking.
Got 286k off my last malibu until the transmission decided to quit. Good ol torque converter locked up.
>>ALL the usual Saab quirks.
fucking saab engineering i swear man
in my buddies old one if you disconnected the seat then the engine wouldnt work. literally wtf were they thinking.
they arent bad cars to drive but i think id rather kill myself than own one
>>inb4 $500 1 afternoon
more like $80 1 hour
step up fagit
but in all seriousness i get it. im not exactly a richfag either but there are options. go pull one out of a 95 tahoe in a junkyard for less than a grand. cam it, load it up with some bolt ons and youre good to go.
Sounds like he was disconnecting a module underneath the seat as well. On some of the later ones, including my 9-5, one of the electronic management system modules is underneath the seat. Now, compared to, say, my cousin's 1992 Mercedes 600SEL, where everything is buried in a bunker-like box, this means it can at least be serviced...but it's still an oddball thing.
Personally, I find that the quirks and annoyances are worth some of the disadvantages because they add to the overall vibe of the car, like everything about it is super-different from lots of other stuff out there on the road, even if many of the elements are similar to others. Sure as hell ain't for everybody, though.
02 Civic EX
>great on gas
>stock speakers are bretty gud
>odometer stopped working
So fucking close to quints.
Its been a desert truck it's whole life up until october. This is its first full winter. I get it washed at least once a week to get the salt blown off
-8/10 factory sound system

-12 second 0-60
-the center console design is 4/10
-under 2k rpms while accelerating in gear, car sounds like it's dying, haven't figured out why

mid 2000s cr-v
fits into tight parking spaces
it comes with a fucking table
road noise is kinda loud
bastard child of a column shifter (seriously it's a monstrosity)
back seat is kinda cramped for fooling around, but then again I didn't try the trunk so maybe that's better
Aww shit son, that a 2nd gen one? We don't get those in Finland, only in like Italy as the Lancia Thema.
-Loads of torks and power
-Very roomy and comfortable to drive
-With some light gas pedal usage, can get surprisingly good em pee gees from that V6 diesel
->American car with a shitty german diesel engine
-Ass end tends to slide around during winter a lot
-Isn't all that nippy and nimble, driving in the city can be a bit problematic
>torque makes for a 20 foot long skidmobile
>sounds good with the O2 sensor hole open
>14-15 combined mpg in a 3 ton vehicle
>can intimidate the faggiest of roadgoers
>AC not as good as modern cars
>need new tires
>windshield washer fluid squirter motor just recently went out
>takes a long time to warm in winter
>cost around $10 for a full tank
>DCT is a ticking timebomb
id say overall its pretty decent for an econobox
Man, it's a Chrysler 300C CRD.
Has an 3 litre Mercedes Benz OM642 diesel V6 and was sold only in Europe.
We never got the Magnum officially in Finland, only the Chrysler, so both the wagons and the sedans have the, in my opinion, superior Chrysler mask
Yeah, the 300 interior is there aight, or at least it's almost identical to the CHarger interior.
I'll get the SRT8 one day, just you all wait and see. They are quite rare over here though, but that won't stop me.

Nah, I'm just gonna leave it as is.
Inherited it from a dead person, and I want to respect it. I'm just hoarding money right now, so I'll be able to afford a nice fun car like a BMW M2 soon.

>most reliable vehicle I've ever owned or heard of. 60k miles since I've owned it without a single thing breaking.
>Rediculous amount of storage in the back. I'm a carpenter/framer working on me GC license, and I carry all my tools in the back. Made myself a little shelf in the back out of scrap plywood. Carry all my cordless tools/air compressor/framing+trim gun/cables/hoses/toolbags/PPE. Back seats have a large bin that holds chemicals and fastners. I can run my business out of that car and all my tools are protected from the elements. All this car does is give, and asks nothing for me except a bi-weekly fillup when things are busy.

That's a feature bruh. You won't be replacing $400 door actuators or window motors in 10 years like the other scrubs. My dad has an 07 and it hasn't needed a thing being replaced since he got it new 90k miles ago.
2005 century limited
Likes: comfy, big, does everything I need
Dislikes: it looks better than in pic now but i crashed it so it kind of lessens my pride in it. I timed something like a 9 second 0-60 and thats not as good as i'd like, and theres no sicc bodykits for it.
Its rad and i like it but its not fast and it never will be
