      I agree, live on super tight budget and pay the car down as quickly as you can. Spending another $2-3 grand while being upside down on one car is a bad idea not to mention double maintenance and...

      Agree with almost everything except the MPG, a diesel will get far better MPG than a 460 while towing. If you don't plan on towing much, then its a moot point.

      A 460 ford towing 10K load will...

      This is dumb, drinking a cup of coffee is a heck of a lot different that having your face glued to your phone because you are playing Pokemon.

      I was referring to the Corolla. It downshifted to second gear at highway speeds while the cruise was set causing the engine to redline.

      Well there's your problem.


      So I guess the fact the trans will shift down to 2nd while the cruise in engaged and cause the engine to redline is normal? Or the fact that the throttle peddle is...

      I had to drive an 06 Corolla the other day and by the time the day was over I felt like strangling somebody from the driving "experience". I can't believe people actually like those cars. :facepalm:

      Not sure what you did to kill yours but I work on several MK4 with over 200K on them and they are still chugging away quite well. The 01M auto trans used in them was a s#!t pile, but the 5 speeds are...

      My 99.5 has only 357,000 miles, clearly a piece of crap.

      My point is MK4 cars were not the most reliable but were incredibly well made and last a very long time. Reliability and longevity are two...

      I would get one that is SCR(2nd or 3rd generation common rail), they don't have HPFP failures, iced intercoolers, DPF failures, ect.

      Those first few year DPF cars are turning into real money pits...

      It still runs fine but the body is rusting apart. Subframe rotted out and failed a few years back and I put a junkyard sub frame on and keep driving, then the gas tank rotted and fell off:laugh:....

      Pretty easy to open them up and clean the veins out. Not much goes wrong outside of that.

      Car likely has other problems though. Typically any TDI under $2K will need lots of work to get it back...

      I think the main problem with this bill is that it makes modifying your car illegal even if its used off the road. That's what people keep failing to realize and whether the EPA meant it or not...

      Valet had no idea how to use a clutch or manual transmission for that manner. You can hear him in the video revving the crap out of it at every take off. That is exactly what burns up the clutch...
