Well I have a bunch of options for cars I want:
CRX, E30, E36, Miata or a cheap Civic to learn to work on cars. Still have to save up money tho. But the Saab is damn sexy
sick pt cruiser bro
I had an 01 9-5 Aero. Loved it until it any repair had to be made. If I had more money, I would own another.
met a guy that had 2 9-5 aero's of the same generation. He knew the car inside and out. Claimed it was the best car to have once it was sorted out. He previously owned an E30 M3 iirc. Claimed 450hp to the wheels with the dyno sheet to prove it on his 2000 9-5 aero. It looked stock and could smoke the fuck out of anything on the road. He did his own suspension work to it as well. Sexy asf
They are the good guy's car.

Well I was working at Nissan for 2 months but since NissanUSA is down 38% in North America in annual sales they are downsizing and I was let go on the basis that I was the last one hired and they are just trying to go right by other people working there and I got the axe.

To be honest I never got any training. My training was watching 2 people do the job and was told to go at it nothing beyond that. We got a new GM a week after I was hired and he was always looking for a fight with everyone. Yesterday a client called in and asked about a manual 4x4 frontier, we don't have any frontiers that are manual so I told him that we can't help him and his best bet was to look online for one. I was yelled at the GM for losing a sale and should of convinced the client to come in and test drive the Auto one. Personally being a person who prefers manuals if I was looking for a manual someone told me that I would tell them to eat my ass and stop trying to wasting my time.

I was on the internet sales side but I want to take a shot at being an actual sales rep. I personally work on cars and have a decent amount of product knowledge. Any advice?

I want a job this is depressing since this was my first car sales job and I was making more on commissions every week I was working meaning I was getting better at my job. It felt good being a productive member of society in one way or another.

If you guys want to hear some of the ridiculous rules we had to go by I would be more than happy to share. It's not hard to understand that our dealership was down around 30% in sales since last year to date.

Help me out please

Just get a job at BMW. Being a sales rep shouldn't be any different if you're working at Nissan or Honda or Holden for that matter. The only major difference is you being able to promote the brand against the competition. Once you go in, they should teach you everything they got in order for you to sell and barter on vehicles.

The point of the dealership is not to sell as many cars like hotcakes, it's to be able to maintain a positive ratio between customer satisfaction and relation.
go for it. Be as persuasive selling yourself to a dealership as you are selling vehicles, and you should be able to find work. Leverage any experience you have, with Nissan or otherwise, and rewrite your resume to cater to each place you apply with.
Yes I am aware that satisfying customers is equally as important as selling vehicles. Also selling vehicles brings money via service etc

I'm seriously considering buying a new WRX but it seems to get a lot of hate on this board. Without diving into the used market, what's an alternative I can get for around $25k that's just as fun or more to whip around corners?

I don't really like hatchbacks but the Golf and Focus seem to be popular alternatives. Opinions on them? Would love to hear from current owners.

not that guy but the 2011-2014 (ej255) wrx looks better than 2015+ in my opinion. they also come in hatchback which is wide as fuck. id like an old gc8 for a project one day

What happened to the spirit of 90s Mitsubishi?
Well following their "dream" nearly led to bankruptcy several times so can you really blame them?
Mitsubishi got undercut by Korea, and the loss of Chrysler as a rebadger was another blow

I'm trying my best to keep it alive, someone send me parts please.
Mitsubishi is my favorite manufacturer and their fall into ordinary honestly makes me pretty disappointed.
Just because they don't release new cars that are good doesn't mean that their old stuff isn't worth anything. I don't have much hope for the other manufacturers either.

>inb4 Mitsubishi becomes a hipster brand for sporty vehicles because their only new vehicles are the same crossover.
Imagine the 1.6L V6 Mirage becoming cool.

As someone who lives in the most based state in the union with no emission testing, no front plate, and no income taxes, what is emission testing and how much do they cost?

Sounds like you live in an area with state-wide emissions testing. (Surprisingly, California is not one of them)
Emissions testing in NJ is done by the government so it's taxpayer funded.

Is watching every episode of top gear enough education on cars and car mechanics? At least the real top gear not the nu Male version
1 reply omitted. Click here to view.
But you should watch it anyway
Not really.

Watching Top Gear to learn about working on cars would be like watching one of those ER shows to learn about brain surgery.

Top Gear is about nice cinematography and the bants between the three than anything else. Cars is just the vessel to get it all in you.
You go to a community college or Haynes manuals on your own car.

Intro to automotive class at my local community college taught me enough to get started learning more. Best $200 ive ever spent in my life.
I would go so far as to say top gear actually supplies outright bad information too. Such as referring to all paddle shift autos as flappy paddles and glossing over traditional auto vs CVT vs DCT, durr all axles bad even with proper constraining geometry etc.

So what is this thing? A volvo.

I want to say so but not sure.
6 replies and 1 image omitted. Click here to view.
i think its just the angle, the hood bulges and weird rear window layout are pretty unique features you wont see on any Volvo.
it’s not a volvo but you can see it has a different headlight design and the german front plate looks bigger which means it’s a smaller car
Mercedes offers different trim levels with various lighting technologies. Some are full LED assemblies on the higher trims, while lower trims may still have halogen/xenon combos.

I think it's the same car in a different trim level, and at a weird angle.
Definitely a new Merkedez-Bonk. Clueless as to which model since they all look the same nowadays
>Fucking dinner plate of a logo space

Merc, no doubt

But that's a Lexus.
Reading the press release, GM even mentioned how great it is that the driver can select FWD or AWD mode.

Fair enough
Do you have the digital cluster, or the regular shitty analog one that is clearly a recycled design from a 90s era Buick.

for some reason this stick on fake rear light band made me laugh
Interior of the CT5 Supposidely has an escala style interior

You can even see the curved dash
Gotta say i'm more excited for this car than even the mid-engine vette.

Hell/o/, it's been a minute since I've lurked around here.

How does /o/ feel about 4 cylinders in bigger, medium duty trucks nowadays? I think it's interesting to see a 4 cylinder turbo in a silverado... as weird as that sounds.

Them veeeight feels tho.

americans need to be gassed and bombed
Meh. GM went too far.
A small and stressed engine will be stressed even if the internals are made from hardened unicorn cum. There's a reason why industrial engines are big as shit and low power.
Because they (A) want them to run *forever* and (B) are always at lower RPM, thus making less power from a formulaic standpoint. 300ish hp is perfectly reasonable from a larger 4 cylinder and should last several hundred thousand miles with proper maintenance, maybe 150-200k with normalfag maintenance.
EB's are shitting the bed at 100k miles and you want roughly the same power from even less displacement. That's just a horrible idea from a reliability standpoint. I shouldn't have to worry about my turbo grenading itself if I miss my oil change by 10 miles. It's fine for a mall crawling truck but fuck that shit on a rough logging road 50 miles from a cell signal.

Bring back traditional hydraulic automatics, no computer needed, just a solenoid valve to change line pressure for different driving modes, controlled by a rotary dial
Anything other than stick is a sin
No tactile feedback. I know what gear I'm in by the position of the stick. This, I've got to look down for a little red flag.

OK for fully auto transmission. Because you set it and forget it.
Some companies mate cvts to a dry clutch for some fucking bizarre reason.
