That last one hit my feels way to hard
where are we going, feeladelphia?

“Automated cars are the wave of the future”
And from a friend “I own an automatic, wanna drive it?”
Knock knock! Who’s there? Bottom end!
Happened to my workmate on his Focus ST a few weeks back.
Literally took the words right out of my head.
there was some photoshop here. as the driver of a land rover i can honestly say a speeding fine in a land rover is a definite imposibility
Try it in France.. There are a lot of automatic radar in towns, it’s easy.
im not saying its impossible to get caught. im saying they are so bloody slow you cant break the speed limit
It would break down instead of break the speed limit.
a well maintained landy does not break down. and before you mention oil leaks. its the car covering all its steel parts with an anti rust layer
I know m8, i was kidding! Every car is great if well maintained.
except a prius
Well i don’t know the maintenance of a prius, or if it’s cheaper or not.
I can’t believe I’m here defending the Prius but…they’re damn reliable cars. They’re used as taxis around where I live and they hold up to the abuse. Most of the ones I’ve seen have well over 150,000 miles on them. An Uber driver had a 2013 model and had 193,000 on his and it still ran strong. And I’m not sure if you’ve ever seen the MotorTrend RoadKill episode where they compare the Prius to a Gremlin, but that Prius had around 300,000 miles on it.
But with a prius you have to buy a new $6000 battery every 6-10 years that’s worse than buying a new motor so prius mantinance is terrible plus it gets negative 20 smiles per gallon…… I’ll be sticking with my reliable old dinosaur bone guzzler thank you :D
honestly living between south africa and botswana i see almost no priii probably a maximum of 6 a year. seen more audi r8s than that. here the prefered hybrid is a honda crz only manual hybrid in south africa ,and us saffers love a manual
Meh, i didn’t know it was that pricey … thanks for the tip.
i id not say they are unreliable i was responding to the comment that all well maintained cars are great.
Go to a cab company that’s had their Prius taxi’s for a long time and ask the owner, not the drivers, of the company if they like using Prius’, they’ll probably tell you they can’t wait to get rid of them.
A sharp inhale of breath through the teeth after a mechanic has had a look at your car
Especially when you only bought your Alfa two weeks ago….
^ From experience
“Danger to manifold” isn’t actually too bad, all you’ll need to do is weld your floor panel back on because your engine will be back to perfect condition after pouring out a tonne of smoke and waiting a minute or two!
More terrible : “I think it is the cylinder head gasket…”
greedy mechanics working on rx8s be like
Wow you made my day
crust on your tuna sandwich…….
