  1. I'm sorry but cars have gotten smaller not bigger I can tell you that much just look at the size of the family sedans that were built in the 50's, 60's, 70's and 80's they were absolute beasts.

  2. Mazda haven’t ruined the Miata in the nd model and it’s a great car. It’s still the same basic idea

  3. $60,000 for a pickup truck that should cost $20,000. Why? Same frame, body, windshield but a handful of of computers and sensors which cost the manufacturer (let's be generous) $5,000. So why isn't it $35,000? Subvented leasing.

  4. “New cars might be more reliable” and they might be a hell of a lot more unreliable once they are 10+ years old or less.

  5. If one thinks modern cars feel like they aren't real, one should come and drive around Russia (or any rural area will do, probably).
    Roads there would probably "rattle your fillings out from downstairs" no matter what you drive.

  6. ok i have an idea .make cars a hobby not a necessity.

    lets be real. cars aren't that good of a transportation method,especially compared to trains and busses,having something pretty big and wide that only fits mostly 8 isnt that good compared to a train/bus that carries more than 16 people while being 2-4 times bigger.or even a bike due to its width being paper thin.
    there's a way i think we can do this.make 2 doors cheaper to tax and the smaller the car.the cheaper. imagine seing cappucinos ,copens ,and baby muscle cars powered by methanol and waste co2.while non car people use trains, busses, and gondolas.

  7. Most people are dumb obsessed with their phones. Car manufacturers know this and put a big slow phone in their cars. Practically useless and could be easily done with physical buttons and dials (which are MUCH more safe and intuitive), but these dumbasses fall for it and buy it. That's not my opinion, it's a fact.

  8. Electric car are not slow. But they are stupid. It's like driving your car but putting a condom on it before you leave the house

  9. When I bought my FR-S in 2013, getting the manual transmission was a no brainer. Now, at almost 200,000 miles I still love driving that car. But then, I don't live in an urban area any more so there is very little "rush hour" driving on my commute to Louisville. It's almost all two lane twisties – 150 miles worth every day, on Michelin Pilot SS's (and now S4's). I never get tired of driving a slot car on well maintained Kentucky twisties. They don't have cops. They use Deer instead. 😀

  10. Not all modern cars are bad. But, certain ones are because car manufacturers are cutting corners as much as they can to make more profit. As a result, you're getting very poor build quality. GM is a clear example.

  11. I hate the lag of modern cars also there's no way an electric power steering or electric AC you're not going to be able to just pull it out of a junkyard 10 years later put it on your engine and drive away they're not going to last like mechanical power steering racks and mechanical power brakes even 10-year-old cars are better these new cars you're going to have to buy brand new parts every time and half of these parts aren't even going to be available at AutoZone but dealers are trying to cut them out too so we can't buy parts or work on our cars
