    1. My Grandmother has an 09 she bought new sometime...

      My Grandmother has an 09 she bought new sometime in 2008. I think it was the 1st year of that generation. It's got around 75K and has been pretty good. Only issues have been 2 alternators, an AC...
    2. Really, you think so? I've always thought Honda...

      Really, you think so? I've always thought Honda engine bays were cluttered and messy looking compared to Hyundai (Toyotas are clean in my experience). Maybe there's more plastic coverings on...
    3. They have their weak spots (suspension, handling,...

      They have their weak spots (suspension, handling, steering) but I was very happy with my 2011. I put 87K miles on with no issues outside of normal maintenance, which i did all myself. I just...

      My 2017 Elantra was made in Ulsan Korea by unionized workers (not sure what the breakdown is of US vs Korean Elantras).

      With that said, the Elantra's sales are quite mediocre considering it was...
    5. I think I know what you're getting at, and agree...

      I think I know what you're getting at, and agree (long term health), but I can say from personal experience that I have lost weight (and kept it off) eating the same crap but less. It really is...
    6. I always laugh at the reverse body shaming trend...

      I always laugh at the reverse body shaming trend that's been going on lately where larger girls are ribbing on girls who are supposedly underweight or too skinny.
    7. Not necessarily defending it, but I've read some...

      Not necessarily defending it, but I've read some unfavorable reviews of the interior. I remember an IS forum thread where previous gen IS owners were dumping on it too. I think the consensus was...

      I do like the range of motion offered by a round vent. As a kid thought 90s Pontiacs were cool because of that.
    9. I want to agree with you, but I think Donald...

      I want to agree with you, but I think Donald Trump is going to do what Donald Trump wants to do. At this point nothing surprises me.

      So, it looks like he can do 15% for up to 150 days without congressional approval...

      If it was any other man I would agree...

      I think he does have the power to do it himself. I think i recall reading that as high as a 15% tariff can be imposed for up to 180 days through executive...
    12. Poll: Embarrassed to admit but I've let my car idle in...

      Embarrassed to admit but I've let my car idle in the garage for up to a couple of minutes. To top it off I live in the GA so in comparison it doesn't get very cold. :laugh:

      I had no idea there was that much money in being a service writer, but I guess it's like everything else that's commission based.

      Unrelated, but I used to know a guy who was an estimator for a...

      I recall some TCL poster who said you could get $6K off a new Cruze, but in our area they weren't very discounted (maybe $2-3K off). That's still a substantial discount, but in my opinion they're...
    15. Admittedly my hearing isn't the best, but I can't...

      Admittedly my hearing isn't the best, but I can't tell the difference between XM, HD Radio, MP3, etc while in a car. Maybe if I'm parked, or creeping in traffic. Once I'm up to speed I'm turning...

      Oh wow - thanks. I think 2-3 years ago he would always say you could download his podcast for a nominal donation. I shouldn't be so cheap I guess, but free is nice.

      Just to add to the XM Hate:

      Yeah, the music is very repetitive. For example, if I listen to 90s-on-9 for 30 minutes, there's an 80% chance I will hear TLC waterfalls.

      Additionally, the resub...

      OP: This happened to my wife on her 2010 Camry. She had an oil change and the dealer apparently double-gasketed the oil filter (thanks ToyotaCare :laugh:). It didn't start leaking oil until the...

      I was behind some loser last night on a street bike. He had a leather vest with some kind of urbanized motorcycle gang name "rough riderz" or some sh!t. We were stuck in creeping traffic. This guy...

      Yeah, that's the only real con for me so far is the delay. I can't pinpoint if it's throttle related or transmission. I've been able to adjust my foot to it for the most part. I've noticed the car...
