Re: Vehicles that you wouldn't think could have a standard shift

I'm shocked crossovers like the CRV, Mazda CX-5, Ford Escape etc. all had the manuel option.

Here was a huge shocker for me. a 2016 Mitsubishi Outlander Sport..

Re: How have you brought home a recently purchased used car?

I think CT is approximately the same as RI: Insure it (online with major companies you can do it immediately, or just ride dirty I guess; or maybe your policy automatically covers a car you just bought but haven't registered yet, read the fine print), slap the plates from your car on it, carry the ...

Re: How have you brought home a recently purchased used car?

I mean just a regular car that runs and drives but isn't registered.

As far as I know, you're required to have the car registered and insured just to have it on the road. I think technically, you're not even allowed to have any of the 4 wheels touching the road if it isn't registered.

How have you brought home a recently purchased used car?

I'd like to start doing more private party sales. However, one thing that I don't have is a means of getting it home. I don't have access to a trailer, repair plate or dealer plate.

Does anyone have any stories/recommendations on things they've done?

Re: Manuals you'll miss in 2019...

I hate how manuals are going the way of availability on sports cars only. Like that's great and all but, what about wanting a cheap fuel efficient, yet simple, daily. Something like the VW Golf Sportwagen. Before you say, that's available with a stick. I know, but only VW seems to make a wagon with ...

Re: Power Steering Fluid

...and that guy down the street with all the old cars that still ran after 100,000 smiles. Yeah, ha ha. Those were the days, eh? If a car passed 100,000 [s] miles it was a noteworthy event. Now it is noteworthy if a car does not pass 100,000 and more. They even didn't have the odometer go past 99,0...

I found a pretty cool site for news and recalls

https://www.carcomplaints.com/news/

It's interesting some of the stuff that comes up on there. Most of it are people suing for recalls or suing for other purposes. Kind of scary when you think of it. But very interesting as well.

Re: Finally got another car

I just feel so much better not having to worry about ruining the front clip of my car as I pull into these driveways. Plus, sometimes it's hard to align yourself perfectly. Especially if you need to break through traffic. The low profile tires are another thing. Especially with the way roads are. Th...

Re: Finally got another car

I sold it. I just wasn't a fan of the sporty nature of the car. Bumper was too low so some finagling was needed to prevent scraping of the fascia. The low profile tires made some bumps a PIA. Though I did get used to it. Still, pot holes and other things were definitely worrisome. The gearbox was al...

Re: I think I found the worst thing about interior design for manual transmission cars

I love column shift automatics. If I get an automatic, it must have a column shift.

Not sure why
