I just went on a uni exchange trip to San Francisco and I was shocked by how many people I talked to were financing new cars. So many people talked about owning a first car like it was this massive hurdle of debt they had to clear.

Is this just an American thing? On top of that, the cars the wanted were things like Golfs, Audi A4s and and Mazda 6s. What is with this obsession with people absolutely must having a current year model car and paying through the ass to get it?

A persons first car should just be a banger that is cheap and easy to maintain. Why did I see so many people talking about and DRIVING things like bmws and benzs when they’re only in university?

It's really not that complicated. For those who think of their car as a transportation appliance, sometimes it's just easier to pay every month and not really worry about it.
>Aside from being more safe in crashes
Law of dimensioning returns, while a 2018 is a shit load safer than a 1988 car.. it isn't that much safer than a 2008 car. With some cars, Saab and Volvo, a 1998 is plenty safe.

The biggest reason, as many have said is percieved reliability. To the average person working on a car is as mysterious as dentistry.

I suppose I don't but that would mean every 2.0XT enthusiast is an idiot. Which I suspected already for different reasons but how can people so obsessed about cars be wrong?

Unless you're suggested a clogged air filter actually preserves the engine?
you can change a filter without changing the intake system. And yes many people obsessed with cars are idiots.. you must be new here.

A good filtering system is essential. When people want to change an intake system it's usually to get more air into the engine. This rarely makes the engine more efficient, but can allow it to make more power.
If you want the car to last, just do all maintenance.. ALL maintenance. Perhaps even do a more agressive schedule. Oil every 6k. Air filter every 15k. Use good oil and filters etc etc

>compares that to the price of getting a mechanic to do the same fantasy repairs to a 5-10 year old car
>when if these failures are happening under warranty there's probably something wrong in the design,cost-cutting or planned obsolesce
>and if a car makes it past the first couple years without any critical failure it will probably continue to last and break down in cheaper, more minor ways instead of having to have the engine rebuilt in the first 2 years due to a missed recall

Kids are getting more and more helpless with each generation. I'm only 24 and I know I sound like some grouchy old man but seriously. I know way too many soyboys who were content to let mommy drive them around until they were 18+ and HAD to get a driver's liscence. Even then, most of them avoid buying cars because they are fatherless or "ITSNOTAPHASETHISISWHOIAM" faggots that refuse to learn man skills like shooting and fixing cars and building things because they'd rather be on social media like a bunch of Stacies.

These are the people who will ruin things, just as they have been for decades now. These are the people who want gun control, overbearing safety standards, and will want self-driving-only cars in the future. They have been raised by their helicopter parents and liberal teachers to be good little drones who mindlessly consume pop culture, go with the flow of fads and trends and take the easy way out, shifting the blame to others and trying to create the most padded, coddled, safe-space of a world instead of living as independant men who welcome the responsibility of their freedom and the concequences of their stupidity.

Sorry for the rant, but this is part of why I became a teacher. I want to raise a generation that is wiser and tougher than their millenial parents. Forgive the spelling errors, I'm a filthy phone poster.
No, she'd prefer to be on her phone texting Chad while driving.
In terms of cars, millenials were the best buying generation, they just bought a lot later due to the recession. Gen Z loves cars, with polls showing most (95%+) have plans to get their license/a car. Every generation goes through the "But what if kids stop buying cars?!" doom gloom and it always works out. Been that way since the 80s.
Back to my point of """car enthusiasts""" being giant pessimists. People have been trying to ban sports cars for years. There's an ad I saw with a Dodge Challenger that says something like "Americans don't need 400 horsepower. Ban them." Plus, just because a car is self driving doesn't mean it can't have manual controls. It's not either you don't drive or you do, you can choose.

Anyone have a "large" car payment?

What vehicle and how do you manage? I've been making a $350 a month car payment for...about 4 years now comfortably (even jobless).

Thinking of jumping up to 500 and getting into an F-Type.
If I didn't have this student loan, I'd have a much more expensive car, that's for sure.
$600 for a top trim muscle car
I manage by making money

No. He's biased as fuck and focuses too much on insignificant details.
I always love to hear what Jeremy thinks of a car, but I would never buy a car based on what he thinks of it.
based on his predictions from 20 years ago, no
sometime entertainment is more important than reliability
not about car but review
about car, reliability is most important
His car reviews are about as reliable as his video game reviews.
But he is an entertaining presenter and enjoys cars very much, making him a fun host for television programs.

These cars are everywhere in central (very poor area) Wisconsin.
Every car disappears after a while, that's not some classic sports car.
These threads aren't really about cars, there about "Holy fuck, I'm getting older"
>The 90s ended almost 20 years ago. There's almost an entire generation between you and your youth now. Everything you loved as a kid is slowly disappearing with time
There's a woman in my neighborhood who keeps one, and sometimes I see a white one in the parking lot of a store I go too, but that's it.
A friend of mine bought one that was in really nice condition, just needing an affordable car, and couldn't figure out why it got so much attention from car guys everywhere.

Why aren't inline 6s more common in modern sports/pony cars? They just seem so perfect.

Is there any down-side to an i6 vs. a v6 besides packaging?
Longer crank, cams and head.
you had your chance
No i doubt the v6 would be lighter they would weigh in the same v6 are more complex you're now working with 2 heads so now you need another timing chain and gears, add balance shafts and counterweights or you'll vibrate itself to destruction, etc. that's why i6 are easier/simpler to work also why even that 3.5l ecomeme engine isn't even lighter
>Daily reminder that the best BMW's have V engines, not inline shit.

You very clearly have never driven a bmw with either of those engines or are trolling. BMW makes horrible V8 engines, and the V12 is literally two I6s stapled together which makes it twice as good as the already great I6 engine.
