Not Bob Dole's exactly but same color and year.
15 inch cvr kicker subwoffer in the back with dark blue HID's. Bob Dole really needs to start adding shit to this car. After calculating nine differnt fill ups and writing down the mileage at each fill up Bob Dole's MPG after nine fill ups is about 16mpg.

I drove one of those the other day, it was horrible. No actually it wasn't all that bad, it's just so tiny as to be practically useless for anything other than commuting.

I like my Pontiac Sunfire, small, but not tiny, good gas mileage and surprisingly fast too. A very nice daily driver.

Fuuuuck. How do you like it.

Ive been wanting a sporty/quick car (in comparison to my 1999 chevy blazer, which is almost anything) and the 2012 has finally made me not HATE the new muscle cars.

The 2012 SRT8 charger is on my very short list of cars that tempt me to break my "I would rarely buy new" axiom for cars.

Due to the Cavalier shitting the bed, I went out and got this today

'07 Ford Ranger with the 3.0 V6 and only 43k miles on it, not to mention the trio of toolboxes in the bed

Only gripes about it are the fact that its the VERY base model, meaning it doesn't have cruise control or a CD player. All in all, can't complain. Especially since if I hadn't found it, I'd have got an '84 Lincoln instead.

UPDATE: The RX7 gets from point A to B now and even passed emissions! Lots of exhaust leaks into the cabin but that's okay because state requirement on carbon monoxide is 1.12 ppm at the tail pipe. This car burns hot so it gets .02 ppm at the tail.

Oiled up the transmission properly this time so now it doesn't get hot and sticky. So slick you can't believe and has a really satisfying thunk into each gear. I might have to do a full thread on this thing with all the updates and timeline details. The back story is that this is Sneaky Git's car that he hasn't been able to sell. We walked away with it for 1 grand but didn't even know what shape it was in since he left it with his parents. Didn't know that somebody backed a truck into it. Totaling our expenses we've dropped $2500 into this car and have a ways to go.

Gentlemen, before you is a Smart car with a blown engine and salvage title I got for $2,000.

Started on it a week ago, hopefully done in a few months.

Please disregard the bondage pants - I spent two years in Germany and tried to blend with the culture. Also the road apparently dips down a bit... but I'm still a dumbass who shouldn't of fucked with nature.

I got it off the lemon lot from a SERE MSgt(E-7) back in 09 when I got back from Iraq. It still works! In fact I drove it to the meetup this weekend.

Pic taken by a friend - who after I called for help wisely brought his camera.

Installed gauges that reflect the hyabusa engine. Yeah... it's just some old counter top I had laying around that I turned into a frame for the gauges. Still need to shape it and color it.

I don't know, an exterior roll cage seems a bit much. I've seen them done to these conversions but I just want something that looks like a normal smart car from the outside.

Changed out the headlights today. Only one was blown, but I ain't drivin' a car with one wonky headlight. Now the regular headlights are nearly as bright as the high beams. Oil change yesterday, and looks like I need to check out the rear passenger brake pads, too. Never drove a car that didn't have drums in the rear.

Know that feel bro. My current DD is a 2002 Chrysler Town and Country with a 215 hp 3.8L V6. It was a hand-me-down from the parents after my Dad upgraded to a van with a wheelchair lift. For a long time I kind of resented it as a mode of transportation, but have since come to appreciate its incredible utilitarian value. It'll carry 8 people with all the seats or many many many cubic feet of whatever I need with them removed. The engine, though by no means a performance piece, will still zip me along the highway comfortably and retain enough grunt to allow me to pass other motorists readily.

It's just about to pass 150,000 miles and so far it has been trouble-free. A brake cylinder (I think) failed on I-90 as I was heading into Chicago and there have been a few other little issues over time, but nothing serious so far. It has been running a little rough recently, and a less-than-helpful mechanic told me it is due to misfires at startup. It's due for a service.

On a side note, due to almost a decade of Wisconsin winters and the inevitable coating or road salt that entails it has developed some rust in certain places on the body work, particularly the panels just in front of the rear wheels. Would it make more sense to replace them or try and remove the rust and repair the damage? Pic is not mine, but it makes very little difference.

Bought a "donor" celica. Almost got it finished. Need to cut the quarter panel, cut out the under-quarter panel, then replace it with my donor parts. Then I'll prolly repaint it. Already replaced the hatch.

This is my 83 GSL-SE Rx7 with a streetported a12, 3mm iron seals, breathing from a rebuilt carb and farting out of headers and 3inch pipework to a apexI coffee can tip, shit is too loud to drive long trips in and got me pulled over a few times now for that and the flames I can flair out the ass.
I did a major weight reduction to her and gutted the inside fully A/c and all down to 2100 pounds and pushing bout 166RWH with the few mods I had to do and 0 to 60 in under 7 on stock tires.

Just under $3,000 delivered (bought it from a guy in Colorado and had it shipped to southeast Texas). This is a vehicle for those that love simplicity; manual tranny, manual windows, manual locks, and manual steering. You heard me, this bad boy came with no power steering from the factory. The car is so light it doesn't really need it. That and it makes the car lighter, removes parasitic loss from the pump, and generally puts as little as possible between you and the road.

I got the great idea to paint my rims. It turns out that a can of paint is only good for 2 rims and the store was out of black, so I thought I'd try graphite gray.

I put the two black rims on one side of the car and the two gray rims on the other.

The casual observer would never realize that the rims were mismatched.

I later bought a parts car, an 88 with a blown motor for $300 from a drunk RX7club member.

I ended up selling the blown engine and transmission to some idiot my friend knew for $650.

Still got a transmission, the emissions crap, a full exhaust, 2 Al hoods, the rear subframe with DTSS elim bushings, the full 4pot brake setup, and some blown shocks.

I should probably get rid of that shit at some point.

Nope, FL.

So take a look at this beauty I picked up.

93' VR6 Corrado SLC, kept under cover in a climate controlled shed for 8 years and taken out once a month to keep it running. It has under 30,000 miles and it looks like it's fresh off the showroom floor.

No rust, no paint blemishes, no blemishes in the interior and all mechanical and electronic components work perfectly. Yes, even the fragile active spoiler system.

These babies where track kings back in the day. They kicked the shit out of 944's and Z4's any day of the week.

Just picked up a brand new 2012 Mazdaspeed 3. So far my favorite feature is the keyless entry. It comes with key fob thing you just keep in your pocket. To unlock the car, you bring the key fob within 30" of the car and press the little button on the door handle. Get in and push the Engine Start button with the clutch in.

I can see myself getting used to that real fast.

The insurance on my Dyna is killing me. I'm trying to sell it just to save the $100 insurance on the damn thing.
$5800 special OpChan price is anyone wants it. {pic much related}
A buddy of mine had a Sportster that he was buying for $90/month. He very FUddish, but a cool guy none-the-less. He was talking about making his own MC, but he was very old school. He's always say, "a real biker would rather push a Harley than ride a rice burner." The thing is though, the Harley he had didn't run. He bought it wish a siezed motor, but it had a brand new motor that just needed to be put on the bike. He never would take the time to do the work, though.
I thought that buying my own bike would get him off his ass, and get his bike fixed. Instead he misses three payments on the bike, and when he decided to start paying for it again he continues paying the $90/mo instead of $270 that was on the statement. He did this for five months, so Harley repossessed his bike. Now he's not pushing anything.

Here's my '84 F250. Has a 351w and rides on 37's. She's got a 5 inch suspinsion lift and a 2 inch body, and has like 54k miles.


...and gets like 5 to the gallon. And yeah, she had her share of chips in the paint(And I know exactly where ever single one of those fuckers are), the radio is cracked, has a small crack in the dash, the seat is tore a bit in one spot. One light is kinda fuckered up but won't be hard to fix, left turn signal won't lock and there's a rust bubble behind the drivers side rear tire..

I guess I'm trying to sell it. I don't really want to, but I can't aford to drive it anymore so I hardly ever do. I have no idea what to get after I sell this.

2008 Swiss Hutless chassis with a World Formula (200cc 4-stroke) engine. It seemed like the best place to start since it's slower than the 2-strokes and shifters and the most popular at the club level. The chassis can also support the 2-strokes and shifter engines too for when I get comfortable and want to go faster.

Where you are, probably. Where I am, fuck no. I covered it in the thread when I bought it. $7000 08 Honda Shadow, $2300 for complete coverage. $4000 02 Triumph Sprint, $9000+ for liability only.

Ontario, Canada = 800% markup on insurance for anything resembling "sport" 500CC and up, 1996 and newer. The only exception to the rule are Katanas for some reason, but there's a specific provision that lets them add the 800% AT WILL if they feel it's "sport" enough.

It's fucking bullshit, but in a few years I'll probably pick up a used Ninja 400.

It's a 5 speed with the AX-15 transmission. Basically bulletproof.

However, don't get too jelly. JEEP = Just Empty Every Pocket. If you're not upgrading, you're fixing, both of which cost money.

NICE BUILD!

Minimalist, and properly modernized.
looks liek it handles great with the short rake and tight clearance on the rear. Must accelerate nice.
What frame is that?
Is it friction shift?

This used to be a Bianchi Caurus 840, bought used for the equivalent of $150 two years ago. Frame, seat, drivetrain and derailleurs are still the original, the rest had to be replaced over time. Shifting's indexed.

Accelerated WTAF-like before I wrecked it in a quite embarrassing and costly way last summer. Only got the funds for repairs, paintjob, &c now. Rode it back from the mechanic three days ago, that was pure bliss. Can't wait for winter to finish the encore so I could ride again.

Yesterday, and $700

The thing smokes, and has a miss at idle. (If you know anything about diesels, this is really really bad)

I think the injectors are worn the fuck out, since the car has only ~272,000 miles on it. But, hey, I didn't have to trailer it home.

Here's the engine compartment. That's a 1600cc, 52 horse diesel. FIFTY TWO horses of slow.

It was my first car, purchased back by me in 1985.
The rear leaf springs broke, punching a hole in the fuel tank, the rear left tire, and severing the brake line. Sold it to a mechanic friend and bought a gray 1973 VW Thing with a torn convertible top.

The Volkswagen Type 181 was a two-wheel drive, four-door, convertible, off-road, military vehicle manufactured by Volkswagen from 1968 to 1983. Originally developed for the German Army, the Type 181 was also sold to the public, as the Kurierwagen in Germany, the Trekker in the United Kingdom, the Thing in the United States (1973-1974), and the Safari in Mexico. Civilian sales ended after model year 1980.

It has been called by Dr. Ferdinand Porsche "Possibly the queerest automobile that I have ever laid eyes on".

Manufactured in Wolfsburg, Germany (1968–1974), Hannover, Germany (1974–1983), Puebla, Mexico (1970–1980), and Jakarta, Indonesia (1973–1980), the Type 181 shared its mechanicals with Volkswagen's Type 1 (Beetle); its platform with the pre-1968 Volkswagen Microbus [2]; and its concept with the company's Kübelwagen, which had been used by the German military during World War II.

The Volkswagen Type 181 is a small military vehicle originally built for the West-German Bundeswehr by Volkswagen. It was built from 1969 to 1983 in Germany and later Mexico, and sold as VW Kurierwagen, VW Trekker, VW Thing and VW Safari.

It was 90 degrees out today, so I've taken the first ride of this season.
Over the winter, there's been a fair amount of engine work done, mainly combining the best parts of an '82 and an '81 engine into the one that you see here (an '81.5?) to great success! After today's ride I feel that some fuel mixture tune-up is due, but other then that, I'm ready for the summer!

Deployment present to myself. 1968 Chevrolet C20 327,TH400. Currently getting new brakes,tires and a much needed tune up. Got her for $1500 after my father let me know about her being for sale. Plan to keep her stock minus a few thing such as new dual exhaust,headers and maybe a new paint job, minimal rust in a few areas. I have wanted another one of these as I had one growing up that was my grandpas but sadly she got sold to help pay for my sisters medical bills.

I did 300 mile days on my Aprilia, the BMW is more comfortable.

My legs get cramped if anything. Only problem solving that on the Aprilia was an utter lack of available adjustable rearsets. Only Satos and those were out of my price range.

The RSV4 and S1000RR have many more options in that regard.

The Aprilia had a better seat though. I've not had the chance to do more than 100 miles on my BMW thus far. Work and the run-in limiter have made it an absolute bore. Can't wait for payday next to take it the local stealership for first service.

They probably won't see me again for anything but warranty work after that. 300 dollars for a fucking oil change and to take the limiter off. Rubbish.

390's are a tight fit in a Mustang. If we ever have to change the plugs on this bitch, we'll damn near have to pull the motor out to do it.

For ease of maintenance, I recommend staying with a small-block. Late-model roller motors make great drivers, especially if fuel-injected. 289/302s fit nicely, though the increased deck height of the 351W makes it a tight fit under the hood.

$2,900 delivered. I was looking for a BMW G650 GS (shown here), but I didn't have the credit for a new one, and the used ones were outrageously overpriced (as in, asking 2013 sticker for an '09, if you can believe that).

Mind you, the dealership I got it from was asking $3,600 for the damn thing, and that didn't seem unusual from what I'd seen, so you'll probably have some haggling to do if you want the sort of price I got.

Modular helmets are handy. Especially if you want to be able to drink/eat without having to doff helmet on a long ride with little to no traffic, or even just at a stoplight to get a sip of something. Also makes it much easier to communicate when you're stopping, but not long enough to merit the bother of derigging the whole kaboodle.

Eventually I'll be wiring my nug-guard with a boom mic and stereo earpieces. Tie it into the VX-7 and a MP3 player with an on-bar TX/splitter/volume box. Tada, enroute comms that will work better than any of the bluetooth ones.. and compatible with the comms in the trucks, if I'm riding point for the wife in the truck.

Best part about bikes and riding: it's highly individual. Do what you want, it's not like you need to conform to anything.

Arrow gave me a slip-on exhaust to have my bike in the AIM Expo in Orlando this past weekend. Here's a picture.

Aside from the slip-on, newest mod is a 16 tooth front sprocket.

The bike is now even angrier than it already was.

Next up is either a K-tech rear shock or an Arrow comp full system.

I have until tax return time to figure it out.

HOLY SHIT.

Just went on a group ride for the first time since installing the front sprocket.

FUCKING BONKERS. Why, yes, I'd love to float the front wheel down an entire straight from 1st to 4th gear. Yes, I'd like to drive out of a corner in a sideways wheelie before I've picked the bike up.

Welp, in the 30,000 miles I've put on this piece of shit, I've had to:

Replace the radiator (blew up on me 1/2 mile from home. $120 new)

Replace the alternator ($150 rebuilt)

Replace the water pump ($30 new)

Replace the thermostat ($12)

Put on 4 new tires ($240 mounted, balanced and installed)

Replace the starter ($40 rebuilt)

Replace the donut spare with a full size pick-n-pull special rim ($65 with new tire)

And go through about 4 sets of spark plugs because they keep fouling from oil

Despite all that, it's never failed to start each and every morning, and never left me on the side of the road.

And even with all that, I still have less than $1200 in the car, including purchase price.

10 out of 10 would shitcar again

Been driving a 1999 Saturn SL1 4-door sedan since 1999.
Asked for no power nothing; no power doors, windows, steering, no extras, and no air conditioning. I live in Colorado and summers do not get bad, so I wanted to save on costs and gas mileage.

The 99 Saturn has proven herself to be a good car. Coming up to 150,000 miles with no problems, so far.
A simple 1.9L 4 cylinder engine, 5-speed manual transmission. Still gets more than 30 miles to the gallon.

This is not my car, but very similar.

Was thinking of getting a new car in case this one conks out.

Any recommendation for a good economical car for driving around town and 15-mile trips to work?

Was considering the new super fuel efficiency turbo diesels, such as the 2013 or 2014 Chevrolet Cruze. Don't want an electric car, since the expensive batteries degrade and would have to be replaced after 5 years or so.

the cruze isn't worth it in diesel. that 17k is the starting price for the gasoline base model, not the diesel. the diesel is about 3k more for a more loaded package, and about 7 more MSRP from base 6MT model, which is all that's really needed in a car like the cruze. the only thing I can imagine adding is the cruse control.

with the additional cost of diesel and the lack of significant return (38 regular vs 42 eco vs 46 diesel), it would take 1,290,000 miles in order to make up your 3k investment on the diesel cruze over base given a 35 cent premium for diesel gasoline, and $30 DEF fillups every 10k after the first free fillups up to 20k miles from Chevy.
If you got the eco, by that 1.3 million miles you would have saved 7,000 dosh.

I had it all in a quick spreadsheet but I removed excel. But I warn you, look up the numbers and see what you can get. But given that in certain areas, diesel is 75 cents more a gallon, and incentives are hard to get due to the cruze's demand, I doubt it.

It is worthy to say that the Cruze is still a very nice car.

Alternatively, the new Corolla looks fantastic. good styling and a (finally) new 6-speed manual base. mite b cool

oh, and I forgot to mention, it is worth it to note that the 1.whatever tarbo motor in the Cruze Eco might get 42 MPG, but also means that you might have to floor it at every light to get some power. it's truely gutless until it revs, which could be a bit of a problem. Numbers-wise it looks fine, but a common theme in these 3000 pounds econoboxes is that these tiny turbocharged motors require too much effort to move them around, making it feel awkward in traffic and dropping your economy.

but that's for you to test drive.

Thanks!
Guess I'll just repair anything that breaks on my old Saturn.
Just keep bringing her in for 3000 mile oil changes and tune-ups.
Once a year, I add a quart of Slick-50 Recharged High Mileage Engine Treatment oil additive. A friend had an late-70s (1979?) Chevy Nova and he added a quart of Slick-50 and it probably saved his engine. He saw his engine temperature was a little higher than usual so he checked the oil level at his next fill-up at a gas station. He had NO oil in the engine at all. But the engine was not smoking hot or demonstrating anything else obviously bad. Filled up the engine with oil and topped-off the transmission fluid and back on the road.

A good rule of thumb is that diesel fuel costs 20% more per gallon, because the fuel companies started charging by the BTU about 7 or 8 years ago.

Is THAT why diesel costs more than unleaded?
I always wondered why diesel is so expensive when it is much lower on the refinement scale than unleaded (one step above asphalt, really).

Why Diesel Fuel Costs More Than Unleaded Gas
Diesel fuel frequently costs more than unleaded gasoline, due to variable supply and demand, seasonal and global market changes and higher taxes. The price you pay depends on many costs along the way from the refinery to the pump. The opposite was true until about 2004, when global demand and higher production costs in the United States combined to drive the price up, federal energy statistics show.
Diesel Facts
Despite the higher cost at fill up, you will get further for your dollar using diesel fuel than standard unleaded gasoline. Diesel offers up to 35 percent higher fuel efficiency, and diesel engines do not wear out as quickly as gas engines, the CarsDirect website points out. Diesel falls into the same category--distillate fuels--as heating oil, and refiners produce the two together. This connects the two prices, often with seasonal highs and lows, according to the U.S. Energy Information Administration.

Gasoline Facts
Gasoline engines cost less than diesel engines, and gasoline offers more horsepower than diesel. Unleaded gasoline passes more state emission standards because it burns much more cleanly than diesel, along with costing less at the pump, according to CarsDirect.

Market Factors and Taxes
The amount you pay for a gallon of diesel depends on the refinery’s cost for the crude oil and for refining it; intermediary costs like advertising and moving the fuel; fuel station costs and profits; and state and federal taxes, the Energy Information Administration notes. These costs shift considerably with time and location in the country. The fuel station’s location and the way the owner approaches business can also affect how much a gallon of diesel costs. The federal and state governments also take a cut, with U.S. excise taxes on diesel running about 6 cents higher per gallon than on unleaded gasoline by 2010, according to "Consumer Reports."

Supply and Demand
Supply and demand play a major role in the price of diesel, which depends on how much crude oil gets produced and consumed around the world. The Organization of Petroleum Exporting Countries--OPEC--commands significant authority over the price because it can set a production ceiling, having control over about 40 percent of all the crude oil in the world, according to the Energy Information Administration. Diesel prices skyrocketed in the summer of 2008, as the worldwide recession began and supplies became tight, "Consumer Reports" notes.

International Effects
The United States and Europe take different approaches to fueling their vehicles, which affects the cost of diesel fuel. Other countries use more diesel than unleaded gasoline, with just more than half of new cars and light trucks sold in Europe having diesel engines by 2010, according to the Energy Information Administration. This drives up the demand for diesel fuel, as does heavier use of the fuel in China and South America for electrical power. http://www.ehow.com/about_6688123_diesel-fuel-costs-unleaded-gas.html
- Volkswagen Lupo 3L - a special-edition made with the intent of being the world's first car in series production consuming as little as 3 litres of fuel per 100 kilometres (78 miles per US gallon or 94 miles per Imperial gallon). Uses a 1.2 litre three-cylinder diesel engine with turbocharger and direct injection (61 hp, 140 Nm).

V8 Kompressor refers to the 5.5L (~332 ci) supercharged V8, known as the M113k that came in many AMG "55" series cars from 2003 until 2007 when it was replaced with the naturally aspirated 6.3L V8 (M156). The M113k puts out near-as-makes-no-difference 500HP and 520 lb ft of torque. 0-60 in about 4-4.3 seconds. It's a beast for sure. The best part is that unless you are dealing with a real car guy, they don't really know what you are capable of. People are pretty shocked that a 3rd gear roll in a 3800LB sedan will still keep them held into their air-conditioned massaging seats.

FUCK YEAR! LANCER!

I picked this up early this year.

2011 Lancer Sportback RalliArt, is actually a damn rare car, not a whole lot of sportbacks out there, even less RA versions.

Essentially, it's a regular lancer, with the Evo X's engine, the Evo X MR's trans(with weaker clutches D:), and the rest of the drive train is basically from an Evo IX...it's just detuned to all hell and back, barely putting out 215hp, but it is AWD...so it's 215 awhp. Turbo is tiny compared to the Evo X's turbo, but I really couldn't pass the deal up, 20K for a fun little turbo awd car with less than 13k miles on it? Of course I jumped on it.

Nothing compares to an XR650L for operating in varied environments. Bike has been to most states in the Western US, through the worst conditions it could be subjected to, and still manages to be my DD. Coming up on 15k miles.

Since my commute has significantly changed, I'm switching from motorcycle to car. It just takes too long to suit up for the motorcycle. By the time I've properly suited up and when arrived switched into work clothes, I've already covered the commute by car.

I'm keeping my beemer, but now it has another germanbro to contend with: Audi TT Quattro.

I was a bit skeptical about the benefits of haldex 4WD (front wheel biased 4wd that dynamically sends power to the rear when needed, such as under acceleration or when loosing grip), but it rained like fuck today so I tested it out with brand new tires etc. It most certainly did help more admirably.

The engine is pretty modest (and silent) when driving around casually, but when you put your foot into it, it's amazing fun. Not quite as amazing as the beemer, of course, but well, that's to be expected.

Reading about high fuel economy cars, hybrids and electric vehicles, ultra-high economy turbo diesel cars surprisingly stood out. Back in the 1980s, European diesel cars like the Mercedes Benz, BMW & Volkswagen were sold in the USA, but did not catch on as they were smelly and loud. A few years ago, I read about little diesel subcompacts in Europe that had unbelievable gas mileage, such as the VW Lupo 3L, rated at 78 miles per gallon! The Lupo 3L was a special-edition made with the intent of being the world's first car in series production consuming as little as 3 litres of fuel per 100 kilometres (78 miles per US gallon or 94 miles per Imperial gallon). During the period of series production of the Lupo 3L (1999-2006), Volkswagen also presented the 1L Concept, a prototype made with the objective of proving the capability of producing a roadworthy vehicle consuming only 1 litre of fuel per 100 kilometres (235 miles per US gallon). https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Volkswagen_Lupo

Currently the #1 most fuel-efficient car in the US is the Chevrolet Cruze 2.0L Diesel 6AT – at 46 mpg.
Perched all alone at the top of our list, the Cruze goes from acceptable economy car to mpg hero once a diesel is under the hood. Thus equipped, you can expect to go 700 miles or more on the highway with prudent driving habits. Try to engage in anything resembling spirited driving, however, and you’ll be thwarted by a recalcitrant transmission and a basic lack of communication between you and the car. Still, unless you go hybrid, plug-in, or EV, you’re not going to top this Chevy for mileage bragging rights. http://blog.caranddriver.com/the-10-most-fuel-efficient-gas-and-diesel-cars-for-sale-today/

2014 Cruze Diesel - The Chevrolet Cruze, Chevrolet’s best-selling passenger car around the world, provides the amenities, quietness, safety features, infotainment and roominess expected of a larger, more expensive sedan, but with the efficiency and value of a compact car.

For the 2014 model year, Chevrolet builds on Cruze’s value with an all-new, 2.0L clean turbo-diesel-powered model that achieves an EPA-estimated 46 mpg hwy – better than any non-hybrid or gasoline passenger car in America. The Cruze Diesel can travel 717 miles on a single tank – or about 10 hours of highway driving.

The 2014 Chevrolet Cruze Clean Turbo Diesel will be available in certain markets in early summer and nationwide and in Canada in late summer.

GM produces about a half-million small displacement diesel engines each year, and four out of 10 Cruze models sold in Europe feature a diesel engine.

“We harnessed generations of diesel expertise here and in Europe to adapt our world-class global engine for the North American market,” said Gary Altman, chief engineer, Chevrolet Cruze Diesel. “Chevrolet is redefining the meaning of great fuel economy with this car.”

With a starting price of $25,695, including an $810 destination charge, the Chevrolet Cruze Diesel is a better value than a similarly equipped Volkswagen Jetta TDI automatic (42 mpg hwy). Compared with Jetta, Cruze Diesel offers more standard equipment including the Chevrolet MyLink infotainment system, larger 17-inch alloy wheels, leather-appointed seating, a longer five-year 100,000-mile powertrain limited warranty, and a two-year maintenance plan that includes oil changes, tire rotation and diesel exhaust fluid (DEF) top-offs.

Cruze Diesel also beats its rivals in performance, with a segment-leading, SAE-certified 151 horsepower (113 kW) and 264 lb.-ft. of torque (358 Nm), and can go from 0-60 in about 8.6 seconds. Its advanced 2.0L turbo-diesel engine produces at least 250 lb.-ft. of torque (339 Nm) between 1,750 and 3,000 rpm and has an overboost feature capable of increasing torque to an estimated 280 lb.-ft. (380 Nm) for short bursts of stronger acceleration when needed, such as merging onto a busy freeway.

Cruze Diesel is powered by the cleanest diesel engine produced by General Motors. It meets tough North American diesel emission standards and generates 90 percent less Nitrogen Oxide (NOx) and particulate emissions compared to previous-generation diesels.

Overall, the Chevrolet Cruze model has helped Chevrolet grow its share of the rising global small car market. Chevrolet has sold more than 2 million Cruzes around the world, and has the second highest share of buyers under age 25. In addition to the all-new Cruze Diesel, Cruze is available in LS, 1LT, 2LT, LTZ and Eco models. http://www.caricos.com/cars/c/chevrolet/2014_chevrolet_cruze_diesel/

Cruze features Chevrolet’s global signature face – a two-tier grille with the gold bowtie logo. An arching roofline connects a steeply raked windshield and fast-sloping rear pillars that provide a sporty, coupe-like proportion.

Prominent headlamp housings wrap around the corners and sweep upward into the fenders and hood. The short rear deck is typically found on sport coupes. Wheels are planted at the corners with minimal front and rear overhangs, which make the car appear longer.

Inside, the twin-cockpit motif is matched with high-quality interior materials and exceptional assembly tolerances. Grained, soft-touch components and low-gloss trim panels convey a level of quality uncommon in the segment.

The instrument panel features richly detailed instruments backlit with light-emitting diode (LED) technology. The integrated center stack houses the infotainment display, climate controls and radio controls, and blends harmoniously with the instrument panel.

The interior pillar and other moldings are color and grain-matched to the headliner, while the seat inserts are color-matched to the instrument panel accent trim, giving the cabin the detailed appearance of a larger, more upscale sedan.

New exterior colors for 2014 include Red Hot, Rainforest Green Metallic, Tungsten Metallic and Blue Ray Metallic.

2015 Chevrolet Cruze - Chevrolet announced today the 2015 Cruze will debut at the New York International Auto Show with revised exterior styling, enhanced interior convenience and greater connectivity – including new Text Message Alerts, Apple Siri integration and OnStar 4G LTE with available Wi-Fi hotspot.

The new exterior styling cues are inspired by the all-new Impala and restyled 2014 Malibu, while more intuitive controls update the interior. New voice-controlled features enhance safety when responding to text messages in the vehicle.

“We’ve simply made a great, versatile car even better,” said Steve Majoros, Chevrolet director of passenger car and crossover marketing. “Chevrolet continues to design, build and sell the most compelling small cars in its history and the 2015 Cruze offers more of the features, connectivity and efficiency that are important to today’s customers.”

The Cruze’s facelift for 2015 refreshes the appearance for LS, LT, RS and LTZ models. A prominent dual-port front fascia takes styling cues from Impala and Malibu, contributing a more cohesive look across Chevrolet’s sedan range – including LED daytime running lamps on LT and LTZ trims. They complement the Cruze’s swept-back headlamps, for a sportier presence. Several new exterior and interior colors will also be offered for 2015.

Updates on the interior enhance convenience:

Revised cupholders make it easier to insert and remove cups
Trunk release relocated to the center console
Door lock switches relocated from the center console to the front doors.
In addition to LS, LT, RS and LTZ models, the 2015 Cruze lineup includes Cruze Eco (EPA-rated 42 mpg highway) and Cruze Diesel (EPA 46 mpg highway), the most efficient non-hybrid passenger car in America. That’s about 10 percent greater efficiency than the Volkswagen Jetta TDI. The Cruze also delivers more horsepower (151 hp) and torque (264 lb-ft), than the Jetta TDI (140 hp / 236 lb-ft). Cruze Diesel’s driving range is up to 717 miles per tank.

Cruze offers more standard safety features than any other car in its class, including 2014 models of the Ford Focus and Toyota Corolla. Cruze has 10 standard air bags – including side-impact and knee air bags for front passengers – and offers side blind zone alert, rear cross traffic alert, rear park assist and a rearview camera.

“Cruze remains a strong entry in the compact segment, with features that continue to bring new customers to Chevrolet,” said Majoros. “Along with Spark, Spark EV, Sonic and Volt, Chevy’s lineup of efficient, technologically advanced small cars is one of the industry’s most compelling.” http://www.caricos.com/cars/c/chevrolet/2015_chevrolet_cruze/

Cruze is the cornerstone of Chevrolet’s North American small-car lineup, which is attracting a greater share of the market and more young, first-time customers to Chevy showrooms. Cruze is also Chevrolet’s best-selling car around the world, with more than 2.5 million sold globally since its launch in mid-2010.

“These new customers are discovering the fun, value and durability Chevy stands for,” said Paul Edwards, U.S. vice president, Chevrolet Marketing. “In fact, Chevrolet is second among buyers under 25, as the brand continues to grow share in the small-car segments.”

Collectively the lineup in America – including Spark, Spark EV, Sonic, Cruze and Volt – saw a 15.4-percent increase in overall sales in the first quarter of 2014. Since Cruze’s launch about four years ago, and the additions of the Spark and Sonic, Chevrolet’s overall share of the small-, compact- and mini-car segments has more than tripled – up 221 percent – with nearly half of the customers new to Chevrolet.

“The diversity of Chevrolet’s small-car lineups, from the efficiency of the Cruze clean diesel and the pure electric performance of the Spark EV, offers a driving solution for everyone,” said Edwards. “With Cruze sales up 17 percent in the first quarter of 2014, the updated styling and greater connectivity of the 2015 Cruze will accelerate Chevy’s small-car momentum when it goes on sale this fall.”

Back to the Volkswagen XL1 (VW 1-Litre) two-person limited production diesel-powered plug-in hybrid:
In February 2013, Volkswagen announced that it expected the XL1 to achieve a fuel economy of 0.9 l/100 km (260 mpg-US; 310 mpg-imp) and emissions of 21 g/km of CO2. The test cycle allows for a re-charge of the battery every 75 km (47 mi) which results in a high mpg value. Using diesel alone the car is capable of up to 2.0 l/100 km (120 mpg-US; 140 mpg-imp). As with the 2011 concept XL1, it is powered by an 800 cm3 two-cylinder diesel engine with 35 kW (48 PS; 47 bhp) and a 20 kW (27 PS; 27 bhp) electric motor, delivering power to the rear wheels through a seven-speed dual-clutch gearbox. The drag coefficient has increased slightly from 0.186 to 0.189. The production version is expected to deliver an all-electric range of 50 km (31 mi).

Production and sales - Production began by mid 2013 and it will be limited to 250 units. A total of 50 units had been built by early September 2013, and the remaining 200 XL1s are scheduled to be built in the second quarter of 2014. Pricing starts at €111,000 (~ US$146,000). The XL1 will be available in Europe only. Retail deliveries began in Germany in June 2014.

Of the 250 units to be produced, 200 will be sold to retail customers. Volkswagen opened a registration process for interested customers that closed on October 18, 2013. Because more than 200 potential buyers registered, a draw will be conducted to select the customers with a purchase option for the available cars. They will be offered a purchase contract and after the payment of a €20,000 (~ US$27,000) deposit, the purchase agreement for a XL1 will be binding. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Volkswagen_1-litre_car

Sure, US$146,000 for a weak econo-box hybrid is crazy-expensive, but it is a very limited production version of an experimental car that gets 260 mpg.

I would be interested in an electric commuter car, but they are expensive. A 46 mpg turbo diesel like the Chevy Cruze for $18,570 ($304/mo lease) sounds much better. Cruze prices begin at $16,995, but the 2.0TD starts at $26,485 and comes with a high level of standard equipment. http://www.caranddriver.com/chevrolet/cruze

Got a new project for $500.
already had offers on the car for well above that, but Im gonna fix it up a bit and sell it on, hopefully for a decent profit.
1980 Chevrolet El Camino
a previous owner swapped in a 350 and a Turbo 350 trans in it with a B&M floor shifter. Got it with a dented front fender, and with starter issues, either the starter isn't bolted on all the way, its missing shims, or its the wrong starter, because its rubbing the flywheel, and wont start the car.
Should be fun!

Guess I should update this thing too....
IHC helped me out, and we got the Timing belt, water pump, thermostat, distributor cap, distributor rotor, spark plugs, and plug wires all changed. I cleaned up the interior a bit, changed most of the interior bulbs over to LED, because most of them were out, and I'm too lazy to tear apart the digital dash.

One of the few things that still induces a bit of puckering when I ride is conducting my routine mirror check / crazy Ivan and seeing a tractor-trailer directly behind me. The mental image I get is that of drop-kicking a bunny into a wood chipper.

That's kind of what I'm talking about, though. The thought that always crosses my mind is basically "What happens if I lay it down with this guy <30 M behind me?"

And yeah, that's rhetorical; I pretty well know what would happen.

>It's oblivious car drivers.

If you are going to buy a car from a dealer, then go to multiple dealers in the same day and play them off of each other for the best deal.
Remember that dealerships tack on $500 or more as a special rip-off fee, so their hurt feelings and indignant protestations of "I thought we had a deal" should mean nothing to you.
I was looking for a cheap, domestic compact commuter to replace my 1999 Saturn SL sedan. I bought that Saturn new and it has served me very well, but at 172,000 miles, it's just showing its age and things are breaking down. Searching around for used car deals on various places like the newspaper and online sources like Craig's List and TrueCar, I selected the Chevy Sonic as the one I wanted (as Saturn is no longer in business at GM after the 2008 auto industry catastrophe). The Sonic is like a more compact version of the Chevy Malibu, cheap features (hard plastic interior, 15" steel wheels, roll-up manual windows, few frills) but a solid drivetrain. Not as dinky as the Chevy Spark (98 horsepower, 31 city / 41 highway MPG, $13,000). I was considering getting a vehicle with all wheel drive to better handle the icy winter Colorado roads, but cars like the Chevy Trax and Ford Escape were a bit too expensive for me ($21,000 to $24,000).
I was first going to get a Sonic that was only a few years old. You can find some good deals on 2013 & 2014 models under 40,000 miles, around $7000 or so and I had that much cash on hand to buy them outright. Looking further, I found 2015 Sonics with very low miles (around 5000 miles) for around $10,000. I wanted to trade in my Saturn on the purchase, but the Chevy dealer said it was only worth $200. I told them the new tires and battery was worth far more than that. The dealer's 5000-mile 2015 Sonic was tempting, but I drove off to another Chevy dealer to see what they offered. They would give me $1500 for my Saturn, but their selection of used cars was limited. They said I could buy a new 2017 Sonic for $14,000 after the trade-in, discounts and rebates. I called the first dealership and told them that and they said they could sell me a 2017 Sonic for $13,750. The second dealer said they would match that, so I went with them.
This is an example of getting sucked in incrementally. I first wanted a slightly used car for $7,000, but liked the recent low-mileage ones for $10,000 but concluded that I could just buy a new one for $14,000. Double what I wanted to spend, but I get the full warranty.

Sold the El Camino, made out okay too.

Bought a 2001 Saturn SC2 from Copart for $450, plus auction and broker fees, after registration and emissions testing, still out less than $1000. Got a running, driving, 5 speed DOHC car, with under 100k miles. Needs a few things, the drains for the sun roof are clogged, and so it leaks a bit, the front PS CV axle and/or wheel bearing is bad, and it needed a tune up(spark plugs, plug wires, oil change, air filter, and serpentine belt), but that was done within the first week.

Thought we had a bike thread somewhere.

The steel seat frame (the steel that you lock the seat post onto) on my seat failes yesterday, and I tried to cannibalize the frame from a cheap seat I had lying around. Been at it for an hour with a bench vise and elbow grease but couldn't get all three points of the seat frame into place.

Google has been usurped (though it's squarely Google's fault) by SEO / marketing lenses, and did not find any help there. Is this doable?

Sold the Saturn for $2300, made off pretty well IMHO.
Bought a 2006 Dodge Dakota as a new Daily for me, and gave my 2013 Kia Rio to my Wife to replace her 1994 Mercury Villager that's getting long in years, and miles. The Dakota was completely stock, 4x4, 4.7L V8. since buying it, I've installed a lift, 2" in front, 1.5" rear, to level it out, installed new strut assemblies in front, new shocks in rear, new tires, all new brakes, basically all the regular maintenance/safety items.

Somewhere between point A and point B I started hydroplaning and hit a tree. Get my rental next week and then have about two weeks to find a new car

Thinking miata, a foxbody, or a K-frame like the Daytona or Shelby Charger. It doesn't have to be cool, I just have to think it's cool. Also good on gas and and smallish preferably. Any words of advice? 8chan /o/ is slower than strip club. Hoping I'm not breaking the rules by posting here but I'm kinda desperate.

Also I don't know anything about car repairs, I want this car to be a crash course that doesn't break the bank

Brothers!

Not a picture of mine, or even the color, but I'm in a 2015 Forester Limited I bought for a song from my father in law because my mother in law decided she didn't like it and wanted an Outback. I'm very interested in putting a modest couple-inch lift, bigger tires, skid plates and knobbier tires and stuff on it just to be weird. Doing a swap for an XT engine would be the cool, money-doesn't-matter thing to do but even if I could justify it, I'm still under warranty.
