    Carvana Bad Offer

    Nice. Like a big Subaru WRX STI in those colours. You would have me as a customer with a stick and a price point under 40K.

    No coolant flow through radiator?

    I would guess Flow limited through the radiator either by the rad itself or worn WP impellers or a combination of the two. What prompted the service to begin with?

    Carvana Bad Offer

    Is it a Non-rewarding slushbox or a Row it Yourself? Id been looking for one of those. Do they sell for mid 30's? I haven't researched as of late. Hate Dodge's wheel choices. Way inappropriate. Where are the Magnum 500 repops or dog-dish steelies when you need them

    Carvana Bad Offer

    I would never expect CARVANA or the like to give you top dollar given their business model. What not private sell it? is it junk? A little bit of work is usually worth 3 grand. Many say it's a hassle. Well it takes a bit of hustle to make 3g's the "old fashioned way" :)

    2021 Mustang GT

    Over 300 HP Doesn't matter unless you are racing. Can't use that power. The joy or driving is more than power and too much power makes you nauseous and gives you a headache. BTDT.

    Mazda 3 just reached 300,000 miles

    With me retired and driving less than 5K miles a year I'll never do that. And I would not want to except in my Old '65 Buick Electra 225 convertible or my Dad's 1975 Lincoln Town Coupe 460

    Conventional Gone

    The only "conventional" I had been seeking the last decade was Rotella Triple Protect 10W30 all fleet. It had been the ubiquitous standard bearer for ODPE and older engines. But the Mower doesn't care what's in there, the Generac 5500 Generator wants something beefier; I traded in my 25 year...

    Home Auto Repair Question

    I'd tell them busy bodies to stick that - but I would NEVER live in that kind or unconstitutional commune environment. What is WRONG with sheeple these days? Sorry about my passion - this a major pet peeve. I've had run-ins at my Mother's condo in SW Florida when I was trying to move her...

    Spotted 2021 Mustang Mach-E today at grocery store

    Its a good driver. You don't like good drivers? Ford still makes multiple iterations of the Mustang for you "Teenager's" in Khakis and Polo shirts. :) I do agree the nose could have been better attended to in the Styling Dept. If I was the Cheif I would have absolutely rejected that...

    Can you imagine buying a 2007 BMW 335i with a 6 speed manual trans with only 3,400 original miles?

    Every stick 6 cyl coupe and and roadster I drove off lease was this way - along with a Honda S2000. But that was only a sample of 3 vehicles. The M was WORLDS apart in shift quality and solidity, Glad you trans is holding up, though, We all could use a bit of luck !

    Mazda 3 just reached 300,000 miles

    I have that in my New Ecosport. I though they only put in the tiny 1.0 litre 3cyl turbo ! Love the Mazda/Ford engine. High compression, Short stroke, hot cams, tubular stainless headers. 166HP. This kind of sporty" motor is going way or gone due to fuel milage and emissions I am up to 23mpg...

    Mazda 3 just reached 300,000 miles

    Yes you did; first post, second paragraph: "My Mazda 3 now has over 300,000 miles and I'm just wondering what can I do to keep it going. I honestly did not think about reaching this much mileage but here it is. It's a 2008 model with the 2.0 and it's doing really well. " No Mention of AT or MT...

    Can you imagine buying a 2007 BMW 335i with a 6 speed manual trans with only 3,400 original miles?

    I do NOT worship at the alter of BWM. This is from a former owner of a 1998 M Roadster. Silver with Lobster and black interior - and a REAL dash. M makes ALL the difference - but the engine was still toast at 70K miles. The VANOS said vamoose ! Great trans and rear end though, unlike...

    2021 Mustang GT

    A more rewarding sports car would likely be the Mazda Miata Club Sport with the LS diff. No place to really unleash the Mustang- so it wont be rewarding. If you have some more money the Alfa 4c would be the next recommendation. BTW the 6.2 Chevy V8 is a MUCH better engine with more 2...
