    This was an excerpt from one of my Live Car Talk shows where I answer your car questions Live. If you enjoyed it, every Thursday at 1 pm CST and Saturday 10 am CST I live stream and answer your questions!

  2. There's nothing wrong with 4 cylinder cars. Today's 4 cylinder engines have enough HP and torque as v6 cars now and as much as v8 cars did 10-20 years ago. Your average 4 cylinder mid size SUV/crossovers are fine. They aren't made for racing, but for everyday driving there's no difference. Spending 10-20k more for a V8 just do have a couple seconds of a little more acceleration is insane. You can't always drive 120mph daily.

  3. Hey Scotty why when you're racing a V8 engine versus a 4-cylinder engine sometimes you have like the first couple hundredI remember in my MR2 I would have liked the first couple years before they would catch up to me.

  4. What car has cheap power not overall inferior? And my curosity comes from modern v/inline/ other options today I'm not rich! Please help? I want a car though without inferior power I can gradually increase but at least will outlast 4 cylinder and cheap as possible for me with a cheap car in mind because I only want the best overall. 4 cylinder, v, or inline that meets this…is it the v,inline,or other cylinder😉? Thanks a lot dad!

  5. Wait a minute. I have a Lexus 4 cylinder turbo charged engine and the Lexus NX 300 F Sport should last 200k+ miles. You said that the turbo charged engines don't last as long. Did I goof when I purchased my car?

  6. They went to turbo4s because turbo tech has increased enough to the extent where it's not wearing out the engine like old turbo's and the power is distributed properly and when needed. Saving on emissions and fuel economy. But when you got a guy here who advises buying 15 year Toyota's and Honda's and all modern stuff is bad… what do you expect opinion wise?

  7. Reason? A strange type of socialism? Like that type where they who have collected much for example have someone stealing half and giving it to someone collected nothing? Been better to get along with someone which could learned to collect similar for example.

  8. I already explained to you that very little of why 4-cylinders are efficient has to do with weight. How dumb are you? – internet tough guy 🙂

  9. Scotty, even newer cars can get a good tune if you're willing to pay about $400 to $800. For example the Lexus/Toyota 3.5 (IS/GS 350). With the 350 it's getting the most HP high on the RPMs, so an extra 200 or 400 rev can really help and as you know cars are tuned factory for mileage, comfort and sound – a good tune doesn't necessarily care about all of that.

  10. Years ago they had PROM chips ( not RAM chips ) which stands for “Programmable Read Only Memory” and they were able to program different functions into the PROM.

  11. have you noticed that small car lines get bigger and bigger? for example the VW Polo now has 5 doors. For example the Renault Twingo, has 5 doors now. For example the Mercedes A class…. and so on, getting more and more expensive
