Auto loan forgiveness when?
Banks shouldn’t be giving auto loans out to people who can’t afford it.

You don't have to lean and strain your back loading SUVs. Its also easier to load old people and fat people. Cause your not just going to haul kids, you will sometimes take adults around.
uhhhhm no, sweaty. A used car? Sounds like you're begging for a breakdown. Its not big enough for her and her 3 sons. Also its very low to the ground, thats just begging to get killed if someone hits you. Plus it looks like a dog taking a shit. That lifted suburban with 22" wheels and off road tires is the perfect commuter vehicle. It can fit all the groceries, and carry her sons.

Besides, she works really hard to provide for her sons and deserves something nice. Banks and corporations are just greedy, why can't she just have that stuff for free? Baby daddies don't pay child support so its all on her as a single mother being a fierce bossbabe!
You’re a midwit. It makes no sense to pay down a 2.5% loan vs doing literally anything else with the money. Even taking the extra money and putting it in a savings account at a garuntee 4.25% would be better.
>it makes no sense to own your house
>just debt slave with rent to own for 30 years
>just never lose your job and work until your 60, give 300k to jews for free and then you can maybe own your home
No. Own your home as soon as you can and be free. Lose you job? Oh well you own your house maybe work at the local gas station for a while.
>savings account at a garuntee 4.25%
These high rates only happened recently and will go back down when the fed lowers interest rate, forcing the banks to pull back on their interest rates.
I agree with you though, if you have such a low interest rate on your mortgage, it makes sense to have your money work for you instead of paying down the house (assuming you don't plan on selling early because house mortgage amortization schedules are so fucked and you're mostly paying interest at the start in lieu of buying into your share of the property).
Nah, you're even more retarded. Losing your job doesn't make you lose your investments. If you can't afford to pay off your house, don't buy it. Simple it. (ok, this last comment was tongue-in-cheek, and I'm only half serious).

Where do people get this sovereign citizen idea? I feel like im pretty in the know for wacky conspiracies, but i never see people advocating for this, in life or on the internet. Im assuming it has a 0% success rate as well

Things must be getting pretty desperate as the people have decided the future is Hybrid and autonomy, not 'EVS'

"Queenslander Justin Searle lives almost 1,000 kilometres from the nearest service centre, but that did not stop him from buying an electric vehicle (EV).

The outback miner says the decision to ditch the country favourite 4WD surprised his mates.

"There is definitely the perception that EVs don't work in the bush, but if the charging infrastructure is there it really is easy," Mr Searle said."

What do resale values have to do with sales if Norway is 90% EV?
So it's just a money issue. Everyone would switch to EVs if the economics to do so favor it.
Let me know when you come up with a reason Norway is not a valid comparison, besides economics.

Tesla is strapped for cash right now. That's why their prices dropped trying to rake in some money.
I’ll buy an EV when the battery pack and electric motors have been replaced with an RB30DET and all the infotainment systems + tracking devices have been entirely removed from the vehicle.
Small, cheap, fun to drive hatchback with at least 230 mi range.

Was doing a bit of research and was pretty surprised to learn how well these cars handle. Toyota should've used this as the basis for the new poopra. nissan should've used this as the basis for the new Z.

imagine an alternate reality where we have new Poopras and Nissan Zs on the same chassis as the Camaro, but with engines and styling from Toyota and Nissan.

let me know when a stock poopra does anything other than be a waste of money. seriously, how does toyota fuck this up? they basically got someone else to do the whole car for them, and they just slapped their badge on it. even Honda with the new NSX deserves more respect than Toyota.
>Gotta be honest chief, I'm really not seeing it
well now you are. pic related is your original ecoboost mustang you compared.
Are you pretending to be retarded? Its the motor trend figure 8. Every fast car does it in under 30 seconds. 0.9 seconds faster is a very significant amount. 0.9 separates a viper acr from an audi rs3 limo on the figure 8
So you cherry picked a track that the car you like is better at? What happens if you compare the v6 mustang to the v6 ct5, or the v8 ct5 to the v8 mustang?
I'm not a racing aficionado, I normally just look at the nurburgring lap times because that track looks most similar to the roads of where I live.

GM let their bean counters decide that the tires the 6th gen debuted with were good enough and never updated them. Tires have come a long way since then.
All seasons like the Pilot sport 4s or DWS06+ can match the grip of the stock summer-only Eagle F1s.
You don't need the 1le pack, just better tires to get a 12 second even with a manual.

I test drove a lot of cars before deciding on my Camaro. Supra felt great but way to expensive for what it offers. Type R felt like shit. VB WRX was an underwhelming improvement to my VA WRX. Gr86 made me feel like a boyracer. Chally 392 felt like a tank, I don't like how the Coyote makes power.

I do want to see the "lt1" larper post his copes again.

Why are car prices so retarded in Europe? I've read a lot of excuses about regulations, mandatory features and taxes, but compare the same exact car:

Suzuki Swift in Japan: 1.72M JPY = 10400€
Suzuki Swift in Spain: 18800€
(source: https://www.suzuki.co.jp/car/swift/ and https://auto.suzuki.es/precios)

Even the most basic shitboxes now cost almost 20k, meanwhile in the rest of the world they sell for regular prices. Why?
27 replies and 4 images omitted. Click here to view.
Comparable/worse European-made cars like Dacia or Skoda also have similar prices.
European “safety” and emissions mandates are driving prices through the roof. All those fancy nannying “aids” like automatic braking and DPFs make cars much more expensive than they otherwise would be.

The WEF/UN socialist technocrats, backed by the EU want the end of private motorised transport. Soon they will also come for bicycles and there is already talk of requiring bikes to be registered baka
Not my problem really. The previous owners have already paid these and the repairs. I just drive repaired cars. Good as new.

would the 2jz be better as a 3,5 liter I7?
Yes and even better as a 4 litre straight 8
Unfortunately not , do you know why no one does inline-12 for example ?

In a production automobile, an inline 12 is a sketchy proposition. The crankshaft, which must be roughly twice as long as its V12 counterpart, wants to wind and unwind like a big rubber band, producing tremendous torsional vibrations, and bow and whip in the middle like a jump rope. To counter these forces, the crank must be extremely stiff and heavy, while the cylinder block must be extremely robust as well to contain all these unwanted motions, and also to withstand all the twisting and bending forces of the chassis.

It’s not the most attractive or efficient package, to say the least.
It could be argued that putting two identical inline-sixes back-to-back and taking power off a central flywheel could create a working inline-12 with minimal crankshaft torsional flex an a redline higher than 3000
Or putting 2 inline 6s side by side tilted at a 60-180° angle and sharing a common crankshaft would allow for better packaging
