Previous carBMW 5 Series

Summary:

A reliable, inexpensive, sporty car

Faults:

The radiator's fins have basically disintegrated and have fallen out requiring me to run the heater during the summer months until replacement.

Oil is leaking from where I believe is the head gasket.

Driver's seat stitching is coming apart, causing the foam padding to come out.

Numerous bolt heads have broken off while replacing the brake calipers and associated hardware.

Manual radio antenna mast broke off and it is virtually impossible to find a replacement.

General Comments:

The car is economical to run, requiring only basic preventative maintenance.

The car is very light (about 2400 pounds) which gives it quickness and very aggressive handling characteristics, with only about 125 horsepower.

Previous carVolkswagen GTI

Summary:

World class reliability, fun and value

Faults:

Cassette player broke after 10-years of daily use... no big deal. I'm trying to think here, but in 12-years and 139,000 miles, nothing else has gone wrong. Oh, I had the fog lights go out after about 8-years or so... but dealer replaced fuse for a small amount of money.

Really I'm amazed with this vehicle, I've driven it hard for 12-years and to this day, the EVERYTHING work flawlessly. Not a single rattle, noise, failure of any kind. It starts in -20 degree weather and will also run all summer long in a traffic jam with the A/C on full blast.

General Comments:

I really should get a new car, but this 12-year old Acura looks and runs like new. I have other people drive it and all they say is WOW, smooth car.

I love my Acura. I'd buy another one... if I could afford one. They have gone up in price lately.

Summary:

Worth every single penny!!!

Faults:

Very few things have gone wrong.

The CV boots ripped at 90,000.

The radiator failed at 120,000.

Started to burn a little oil around 150,000 miles.

General Comments:

The car's reliability is phenomenal.

At 210,000 miles, the car still has as much pep as the day I bought it. It has the original suspension, alternator, A/C, clutch and motor. When I try to trade it in I can't because the car is showing no signs of fatigue and continues to handle like a charm.

Summary:

A nice fast little car!

Faults:

The oil gasket leaked. (When I got it)

The Muffler got a hole in it. (When it got it)

That's it!

General Comments:

This car is a fast little car when I bought it it was stock and I raced my friends 93 Grand Am (with K&N intake and other stuff) and I won by a lot. he said that it was because he had a full tank of gas.

It has been a great car for me now that it has a turbo with a Injen Air Intake System, new body kit, Oval Muffler With Dual DTM Tips, and Chrome Headers.

But it has no cup holders. There are 2 2mm. deep rings in glove box.

That are cup holders? I don't think so!

Summary:

Not a bad car at all

Faults:

My alternator stopped working shortly after buying the car.

The starting is starting to go, but it is the original starter.

The orginal clutch is still in the car, and works wonderfuly.

Fuel pump went at 300000 Km.

The exhaust system in these cars rust out very quickly.

General Comments:

Get to drive, surprising power for a four cylinder, handles very nicely, and fair gas mile-age.

I do find it a little small for my taste however.

Summary:

Best car in the world for the price free..

Faults:

Well of course the exhaust has a hole in it common on Honda/Acura alike.

Gotta replace both cv joints. Brakes are completely rusted over.

General Comments:

This car is a great car with a great engine with great speeds I mean I just learned how to drive stick and this clutch is the best clutch I could of learned on. This car his 0-60 in about 8 seconds and that's with nothing done to the car. Planning on adding a GSR engine along with headers, air intake, heat shields, exhaust, performance struts, along with a nice pair of 18 inch rims. of course it will have the other things like Z3 fenders full body kit and spoiler this car will seriously turn some heads especially with the carbon fiber hood its gonna have going on. Most comfortably car that I have ever seen or owned...
