      My '09 Civic has none of the (in wheel anyway) hardware for the TPMS. I think there is a spot in the cluster for it, but no bulb. We got heated mirrors instead, per the owner's manual. Makes it way...

      Just buy 3 more classic Ferraris with different plates. Or buy 3 different plates.

      If it's divided up by which Saturday of the month, who gets to drive on the occasional 5th Saturday? Everyone? No...

      I did not expect that to actually translate to something. :what: Guess my latin is rusty/non-existant. Google thinks it's Romanian though.

      I don't post much, but I lurk on here a lot. I want to say that the longer it goes into one of your threads, the more I start to wonder if this whole thing is going to go the way of a certain...

      The problem with the 8th gen Hybrids, and it may happen to the 9ths soon enough, is that 0-60 is possible around 10 seconds only WITH A FULL BATTERY. Most of the time, especially with the AC on you...

      When mine was done under warranty, the part cost was $6500 and 4 hours labour. I believe you can find refurb packs for around $2-3k if you avoid the dealer though.

      They handle well (like a...

      Typed a bunch of horrible stuff about mine, but I hate to pile on after somebody already purchased. What dcmix5 said, plus my 2nd battery is starting to die.

      I chose e36 after driving both. I got a '97 328is sport package 5spd with 116k miles, zero rust, crappy paint and some creases in it for $2300. Has a stack of maintenance receipts, including rad in...

      I hate those BMW controls. I have to adjust the temp twice every time :mad: :mad: Unless I just haven't found the button to match it. Mine jumps a couple of notches for every fan button press. It...

      Not a box truck, but my commute has about 15 hill passing lanes in either direction. When I go to pass, about 50% of the time the other car will speed up from 90-95 to 110-115 and then slow back...

      My Fiancee has no problem with me driving very quickly. This includes cornering, the occasional dirt road e-brake 180 and fun in the snow. As long as I'm being smooth. She is even planning to do...

      Wow, that's really terrible. :( I guess it's slightly better than a car-jacking or armed robbery, but not exactly a good night.

      If your car insurance doesn't cover it, check your homeowner/tenant...

      It's not just that you had one, it's that they want to know who stole their car. When I sold used, if you walked on the lot you didn't test drive solo either. Even if a wash guy had to go with you,...

      I see a TON of those here. 10-15 a day. More than the regular 500. But it is the time of year when the Chryslers show up (I work in a tourist town, and starting the long weekend in May it seems like...

      Yup. I never looked at it, and he might be a bit hard on cars, but he had no luck with that car. Paint was rubbing through in places as well.

      Dad just traded his 1st year Cruze with somewhere not too far over 60k miles on it for a 2014. He had no problems with the 2011 (?), but the dealer made him a trade in offer he couldn't refuse. It...

      I get that this sucks, but why would his insurance pay out? You aren't covered for the car being already stolen. If my newish Civic got seized because it was VIN swapped (it's been happening in cars...

      My '09 Civic Hybrid has about 130k miles on it, and the cvt seems the same as new. That includes 2 full autocross seasons. I hate the car, but it's reliable. I do change the fluid 2x a year. It...

      What really drives me crazy is how many people believe that their car can actually do whatever the speedo says. "Oh my car is registered to 2xx." What do you think that means?

      Won't argue the crankiness, but can defend the rental swap. When my Civic hybrid was in for a new battery, I got a V6 journey as a rental. I loved the power, but it cost me $40 to drive to work and...
