So, in the UK, it seems they hand out government living allowances to people with disabilities. Part of that money can be used to lease a car under what’s called the Motability Scheme (I found this by accident while looking for portable hand controls).
I’m set on a 2014/15 CTS V-Sport Premium, 2015 Genesis Sedan 5.0 Ultimate, or 2012 Jaguar XJL Supersport. I have an extensive list of pros and cons but what are your thoughts? It’s for sure one of these three cars replacing the Amanti in 2019. I know, seems weird to be looking this far ahead but it takes me about 18…
There’s some Techno Violet just for clicking!
Still fun to daydream...
She has an 11 mile commute and would like a smaller car. She currently rides a motorcycle every day but has decided she needs a car for a lot of the year.
Converting my wife into a car enthusiast was the best and worst possible gift to our relationship. On one hand she engages in thoughtful conversation about anything car related and enables my hobby, on the other she is no longer willing to dutifully drive an econobox.
$40 sensor put me on the side of the highway and would not start back up. Disconnected the battery to reset everything and get back home. Part is on its way but I still I have no idea what to buy next.
I need a new car. Mine has 253k and is ticking; it’s only a matter of time before I lose a valve seat.
Here’s an updated list of all the cars I will ultimately not buy:
Buying a car in Canada and bringing it back to the USA is thought of as a complicated, time-consuming process that often is seen as ‘not worth it’. My friend, JJ, recently completed this process and I tagged along with him to write about the experience and hopefully provide some light on the importation process.
As you saw this weekend, the infamous Montego left this weekend. There’s an empty spot in my heart....and my garage.
But I did learn one thing: my wife HATES these Camry coupes. She normally doesn’t give two shits about cars. You can see the pain in her eyes when I blather on about the allroad or the Paseo. Extreme indifference. But when I told her last week that I wanted to buy that Purple 377k-mile SE Coupe I posted on here, she…
Considering the comments on this post:
He asked if there was “anything he could do for me.” Yeah — it would be to have accepted my offer yesterday.
I think I gave it my all trying to “adult” with my next purchase, but it’s just not for me right now.
So there’s this car I’ve been itching to look at but it’s at a slightly sketchy dealership in a sketchy part of town. However I just did a VIN check and it has a clean Carfax, and has lots of documented service. Looks like it was a trade in a went through two dealer auctions.
Here’s a branded-titled IS300 for $5200 in a town called Buckley. Now I’ve been to Buckley a few times. How one of these ended up there is terrifying to me.
With potential work and volunteering, it’s about time to get something. Any suggestions? Main criteria are inexpensive to maintain and cheap to insure. Due to my age group, that means no Civics, no WRXs, no Neons, nothing of that ilk. Any good suggestions for something under $5k?
Here’s the list of things that the seller did not reveal about the vehicle, if at all, until I had driven two hours to bum-fuck nowhere to drive it.
Why are so many FR-S/BRZs for sale salvage titles? Oh, right.
