    So somewhat ironically it's like a half a decade older version of me being too fed up with the tiptronic to replace it with another auto when it dies. Tbh I DID wonder why, if they already HAD shiftable automatics why the tiptronic would be a novelty in 2003 :| Ah well I'll try to sell her...

    The instructor is an absolute sap and we went overtime a few classes to get cars out of there so it's mostly just to discourage, well, something as ridiculous as a transmission swap. Basically the school does not pay attention to what the class actually does so you can be as ridiculous as you...

    Yeah searching samba doesn't seem to come up with anything still for sale. ...the yellow one is tempting just for the novelty of being the same color as mine 😂 Hmmm i just looked it up and apparently a new beetle can tow an old one, meaning I could potentially abuse the shop class rule of...

    Tesla Cybertruck

    Yeah i do similar with any trip in general. I abuse the hell out of google maps live traffic to drive around traffic jams. Anywhere i go frequently I try to piece together an actual pleasant drive through back roads. I also try to do a lap around the state park near me every day because it's got...

    Anyone have any idea how difficult to find are semi automatic original beetles? My mother would really like to get her hands on one but I am guessing from a quick google that is is difficult to find them.

    The Positivity Thread aka "Today was a great day because....."

    Ive already got 3 concerts scheduled for 2020 (well tickets for one isn't on sale yet but hopefully 3) I am so glad I am well enough to attend them again. I managed a few in this year and the previous year. Before that I think the last concert i went to was cruefest '09 and i distinctly...

    Fuel? Where we’re going, we won’t need fuel! ==>NooDle’s eGolf

    You know I think i have seen one of these because I vaguely remember seeing the blue on the grill and being like "GTIs are red so what does blue mean?" Then immediately forgetting.😂 Someone at the shop class i took had a Bolt and popped the hood and we just stared at it for awhile trying to...

    I appreciate VW's designs there are ridiculous futurey looking stuff more electric cars should look nonsensical like that.

    The 'I don't like Tesla' Thread

    I think a more fair way to put it is, obviously SOME people will find it worth it, but in general a lot of people will try to avoid it if possible because on a personal level it is not worth it. The refueling/range issues is not a barrier to everyone owning electric cars, but it is a barrier...

    Tesla Cybertruck

    This looks like the gummy spaceship you build in kingdom hearts in all it's 15 year old out of date graphics glory. 10/10 on the comedy scale. I almost wish people were stupid enough to buy them because seeing this absurdity drive by would make my day.

    Self-driving Uber car that hit and killed woman did not recognize that pedestrians jaywalk

    I'd also say REALLY CLEARLY LABEL THE CARS so everyone knows to be extra cautious around them like how you would a driving school car.

    Fiat Chrysler and Peugeot plan to create world's No.4 carmaker

    Tbh something the above have in common is most of them have a car or two worth rescuing imo but they are still mostly junk that I am not sure why people buy because they tend to just be generic and bad... But obvious as the owner of one of their nonsense cars I would be super bias. But then...

    Self-driving Uber car that hit and killed woman did not recognize that pedestrians jaywalk

    Also something worth pointing out that is part of the problem? I turn my back to the road when playing pokemon go on street corners. Why? Because specifically if drivers see me facing the road they cover the brake in case I run out without notice. I do this because it is what would be helpful...

    Ford's Mustang Mach E

    Honestly my main take with electric cars is they need like... something that works as the opposite to a muffler. Like someone brought in their Bolt? To the shop class. The noise they make amplified up I think WOULD sound decently cool and spaceship like. I think the biggest issue with the way...

    Ford's Mustang Mach E

    Yeah I have to agree with it being ugly and why??? Call it a mustang?? Also everyone has missed the most obvious name, though the design is still wrong, the name of a car which has had FAR less fitting designs over the years. LIKE COME ON IF I CONVERT MY CAR TO ELECTRIC, I'D CALL IT A...

    Thanks for youtube links I will check them out The thing is they DIDN'T tell her there was a leak though, hence my suspicion. The driveway did. She was surprised it was so rusted when i showed her the picture of it. My suspicion is they didn't tell her so she'd have to keep taking it in to be...

    Tbh my overall impression is car manufacturers occasionally make things shitty on purpose because it results in repeated need for repair. Like why tell mom her transmission was rusted and leaking when if they didn't tell her it would need to be topped off again which means more money?

    The leak hasn't reappeared yet so far even after driving it around harder/longer lately. The "stain" in the driveway is gone and there have been no new ones. I will still keep an eye on it though. I checked around and apparently there is a common intermittent leak issues caused by the mediocre...
