What do you tell these people?

Not everything is bolt on. A lot of retards can't wire shit properly so it's not uncommon to find shit that they totally hacked the wiring harness apart, so you'll be chasing electrical gremlins for the rest of the cars life if you're unlucky. There was also a guy a while back who bought a civic del slo and found hilariously unsafe accident repair under the front fenders that would have totalled it if he couldn't do the work himself.
So yes, too lazy.
What car and hp
You're walking down the road with your gf when a man in one of these pulls up and tells your girl to hop in. What you doing?
Chop off my hand and put it in his car.
oh hi there cagey wagy, I am just passing by on my fatbike. I see you have a terrible accident with your cage on your way to your wagecagy, you week ruined. Those are going to be som expensive repairs wagey, and bet your insurance score is really fucked up now. all because you had to drive to work to be on time for your wage cagey. too bad, cuckcagey.

Right when you think you seen't everything, apparently there's a place that rains cocaine and muffuckas just commute on top of it.
>>20291138 >economical fatbike >avg fatbike is 1-2k
I like how neets always pretend to be spending their "free" time improving themselves, and being outdoors, but really they are just fat sacks of shit living in their parents basements, pretending to be enlightened intellectuals. Also, all fatbikers i've known are pretentious, high-end crossover fags that are trying to cope with their wagecuck jobs.
/o/, I know most of you would disapprove BUT if I had to buy a NEW car, what would be a be a /o/ approved daily driver with some power to it (AKA, no CVTs and at least 200HP minimum)?
PS. I live in burgerland, so yeah, my choices are sorta limited already.
I get it but we do have to face the fact that the cars /o/ loves will become older and older and will eventually breakdown and there will be less of them.
GTI is awesome as a DD.

Not really anything more I want with mine desu. Wish I had newer than 2015 for the new infotainment but that's it really.
/o/ will get jobs eventually
well you pretty much limit yourself to toyota or lexus. the same issues you have in any gm/merican car a european car is the same but with a higher price tag and even more electronics.
So what are your thoughts on the Kia Sportage?
just get a cx-5 if you have to buy a crossover
More like the Kia Sponge
no but serioustly what's wrong with it?
You fell for the "sedans are dying" meme.
Sedans are just shifting market demographics. Sedans were originally tailored towards family, but that all changed with SUVs on board. Now sedans are tailored for the single individual who wants an exciting ride for an affordable price point.
Nothing. It's just a run of the mill a-b appliance so /o/ naturally hates it. They're pretty bad on fuel if that matters to you.
Stupid questions thread. Sorry if I killed a good thread.
When accelerating from 40 to 55 mph this morning I heard a hissing noise. I tried to recreate it by accelerating again later but couldn't. No engine warning light came on. Should I be worried?
I checked air intake via the dashboard while parked and it looked normal.
Really? I've never heard it do that before.
Like a Cobra. If it only made noise when you put your foot down, then don't step on snek.
If it's never made that noise before it's possibly a split rubber hose or a burst intercooler. Get someone to rev it while you listen for the noise. Or try the old cigar smoke test.
hey OP not to scare you or anything, but that's exactly what my auto transmission did before it died. It was a low hiss that only happen when accelerating, 2 days later I was on the side of the road with an exploded transmission
Basically that was the sound of the tranny oil pump failing

How long should i let my car heat up before i can start giving it some real throttle? I daily a diesel car, which for some reason doesn't have a temp gauge anywhere, and i know a rule of thumb is that once the heater starts blowing hot air you can generally give it a bit more throttle, but it doesn't seem like it would have reached full operating temp, since heater temp is often only 20-30 degrees celsius. How long should i drive the car before giving it full throttle? As soon as the heater blows hot air? Or should i give it another 5 minutes after it starts blowing hot air before giving it throttle?
TL;DR how long do diesel cars usually take to reach full operating temp
Disregarding the fact that you don't have a temp gauge, in general when the needle is at the halfway point the engine is at operational temp.
I usually don't rev above 3k (V6 Commodore) until the needle gets to the halfway point +5 minutes
>>20290545 >for some reason doesn't have a temp gauge anywhere
you sure? what are you drivin?
>>20290836 >how long they actually take to reach operating temp after the vents start blowing warm/hot air
It depends on the car but in my 2005 2L diesel I can let it idle for over 15 minutes after a cold start and the temp needle still does not move from minimum. It starts blowing warm air after 2-3 minutes and it takes another 5 minutes of driving to get it to operating temps.
I'd say that if it gives you warm air then you can go as long as you're not too hard on the throttle.
>>20290545 >having to wait half an hour for your car to warm up just so you can drive to the grocery store >being this cucked
just get a fucking gas car already. holy fuck why would anyone besides trucks and big machinery own a diesel?

How big can you go? I wanna know exactly how long, wide, and tall I can tow without requiring a CDL or a permit to use public roads. Looking for state (NY) and federal size restrictions. Google has netted me fucking zero results, nor has speaking directly with the DMV.
as far as size, dont go over 13'6" high or 8' wide (possibly up to 102") because that would qualify it as an oversized load. definitely make sure the route youre taking can accommodate your height. most pkwys in nys have clearances as low as 7'. they make truck atlases that contain clearance info.

back to your containment thread, dickbreath
Depends on the state. You are going to have to look up your own laws for NY.
But honestly, what are you planning on hauling? You generally won't go anywhere near the weight limit unless you start hauling heavy equipment.
In some states it can be really low, like Arizona where the CDL limit is a mere 10,000lbs. Pretty easy to go over. But most states are up in 20,000-30,000lb territory before you need one.
nvm I see you were asking about dimensions
Hey that's only made the hotter Pug 106s from back in the day more desirable. Renault's got Dacia for people who want cheap, sensible transport, right?
>>20291716 >fire/multiair/t-jet engines breaking down
Wrong, try again Pierre.
It'd fuck up the insurance premiums for anyone who buys a Twingo in the near future, which would cost them a ton of sales.
Haha my fiat is better!
