I’ve only bought old cars, so I took them to shop close buy to get inspected. Do you do anything before buying a car that comes with extra warranty and passed an “uncompromising 160-point inspection” ???
Debating Miatas still and I just really don’t like the idea of owning a black/gray car. Let alone paying $20k+ for the privilege.
I’ve been looking for a truck for a few months now and I finally found one in my price range with one of the few engines I wanted that is super clean. My criteria were 3/4 or 1 ton (we tow an 8000lb boat and my old F150 wasn’t cutting it), crew cab, 4x4, and either diesel or big block. Most everything diesel was far…
Update: I went down to look at the truck and take it for a PPI. Unfortunately I did not come back the proud new owner of a 7.3 diesel. The first issue was when they pulled it around and the sales guy wanted to show me something. They didn’t know how it happened, “maybe someone was trying to steal it”. What? Ok. So I…
Cars are going to begin offering a “subscription” service within the next few years. I’m not talking about Book by Cadillac
which has no chance of going industry wide at $1,400 a month. I think I have made some great progress on a subscription method for new cars so let me post the first stages here for you.
I need a little help finding the perfect car. Right now my wife and I share a 2014 Mazda5 but I want a second car for work. I work so close that we don’t need a second car but I think it would make our lives a little easier. We have a budget of $4,000 in mind, but I would go as high as $5,000 for the right car.
I’m looking at a truck that’s out of state, far enough that I wouldn’t make a trip to see it before purchasing. Anyone who’s done this before have any advice? It’s from a dealer so that should make things easier.
Buying a new car can be exciting. The chance to score a great deal is especially alluring and right now seems to be the perfect time to buy a car. Car sales are down, incentives are up and used car prices are falling. A good chunk of you should probably hold off for awhile, however.
Back at it again with the car shopping, which would oppo buy?
Whelp, if you don’t like the styling of the Civic Si then you can get a brand new 2017 Elantra Sport with between $4,000 to nearly $7,500 off MSRP right now! That’s a 201 hp, 195 lb-ft, 6-speed manual (or 7DCT), efficient, reliable, long warranty-having weekend autocrosser for $15,500 to $19,000. Original MSRP was…
No. It’s not a very Jalop/Opponaut-worthy search. But we’re looking for.... an AWD crossover.
I love my Mazda RX-8. It’s a car that I truly love driving and working on like nothing else that I have owned. I am also well aware that this car has its issues and is not for everyone. I hope that if someone is considering buying an one, they read this and take away something useful to help guide their choice and are…
So my car, Louise, who gave my mother in law 7 years of loyal service, and gave me another 4 and a half years, has officially gone kaput. Well, if I was willing to sink another $2000 into her, which I am not after spending about $1500 total over the last 8 months on other things that broke. There was an awesome final…
Now I remember why I don’t like public transportation: slow and expensive.
Since my 208 will leave next week, I need something to replace it.
The good thing is: I’m off work next week so I have plenty of time to go check out cars and find one that fits me.
The bad thing is: I’m pretty much an idiot when it comes to cars.
A few days ago I wrote about a broken car I bought from a colleague. I gave her what the dealer would have given her for her Golf Plus. We agreed that I would come to collect it today. And since my sisters boyfriend has been looking for a Mazda 6 for some weeks now, I checked if there was something interesting where…
And I did that without leaving my office.
I test drove a few trucks this weekend.
In December of 2004, I was a 22-year-old with not many worries and a 1991 Mazda RX-7. It was a normally aspirated coupe with nearly 230,000 miles on it. It was in very good overall condition. The engine had been rebuilt at 140,000 miles and I had upgraded quite a few things to add my own personal touch. I had…
How much will it cost me in total to daily an older car for 3 months?
