what do you drive? i have a '99 Silverado on 35's with a 9.5" lift!
Ah, congrats on getting the Subforum!
We have a swanky '12 Honda Fit Sport. Oh yeah.....
Black ford mondeo 2008.
bought a 2012 VW Jetta TDI about this time last year. about to roll 17k miles, and averaging 40.1 MPG.
the car is very plain jane, but i'm loving the fuel economy. don't think i'll ever go back to gasoline.
2012 Chevy Cruze for me. Bought it brand new last year November and I love it. Turbo charged 4 cylinder
in the second and last picture you can see my previous car haha 1982 Chevy Malibu Classic. I was the 2nd owner of it haha
I got the same car! !!!
Just found this bit after near two years
My Slightly but subtly modified 2.8tdi 4jb1 Frontera :smokingsomb:
The wife has a Picasso, a good reliable 20HDI
Now THAT looks like fun!
How is the trans in yours? I have to get used to mine..it shifts differently than my last car but from what I hear, it's normal. Like when you are stopped at a light, apparently the trans shifts into neutral, then when you take your foot off the brake to put it on the gas, the trans will engage....a wierd feeling
Here's my baby.
Nice!! Just slightly faster than mine
We have a 2006 Nissan Sentra we bought new.
I mostly drive the ole hoopty, 1990 Pontiac Sunbird...
I bought it in '03 and no major problems with it so far. It looked like the motor was reubuilt when I got it.
Never heard about that! haha. At first I thought it was shifting down a little weird but that was just me getting use to it. One thing I love about this car is the automatic manual option. I have used it many times this winter, helped me actually stop at a stop sign that was nothing but ice, and then coming down hills with ice and snow too.
Some one did tell me that when you come off a stop it skips first gear but I don't quite know about that.
I got bitten by the Diesel bug in 2009 and changed all my vehicles to oil burners.
My daily drive is a 2010 BMW 335D and alternate vehicle is a 2011 ML350 BlueTec.
I also got my daughter a 2011 VW Jetta TDI.
Man I love the 425 lb ft Torque of the 335D!! Despite driving it like I stole it I get an average od 30.9 US MPG or around 500 Miles per tank!
The VW Jetta TDI gets 40 US MPG on avearge but it's a 2.0L TDI.
I am partial to the hooptie. I spend under 1k, pay very little in insurance, fix it myself, and don't care if some idiot wants to play chicken over a parking spot. They last me (up to) a couple years and cost me near nothing to maintain.
Eventually living in Minnesota, the land of roads paved in salt, catches up with me, and something big breaks. And in the words of Eazy-E, I " throw it in the gutta, and go buy anotha"
I give you...
The Ugly Truckling!
Oh and here's my other uh, vehicle:
2002 Century. Nothing special.
I like how people driving newer vehicals get out of the way when they see the hoopties coming. They figure we don't care what happens and or no insurance.
I like the bike!
My ride. 2005 Equinox.
Ride a cycle xd
and a hyosung. And a skoda laura :d
A silver color 2012 SEAT Leon which I bought in March of 2012. Has been great so far, but the 1.6 N/A engine is crappy, but then again the price of 95 gasoline (the minimum any turbo-charged car should use) went through the roof and would result in my bankruptcy if I had a TSi, so I'm happy.
This is my 2008 Toyota RAV4 V6 Limited. A blast to drive with 269 HP, 3500 lbs. towing capacity, and it gets 28 mpg on the highway:
I have a 2005 Dodge Magnum R/T. She is close to candy apple red and I love her! We refer to her as Maggie.
dinc is inoperative so no shots, yet!:car:
Purchased Maggie October of 2004 and this past summer was the first and only time I had to change her battery. The battery rides in the inside the cabin, in the rear along with the spare tire. I did change out the tires because the original tires didn't feel right!
It is time to do some motor mounts and I suspect taking her out to the drag strip has had a little something to do with that issue!
I haven't had any other mechanical trouble...(knocking on wood)!
