Taco or Ranger, bros? I like that I can drive out with the engine, styling, and body I want in the Ranger for $26k vs $31k for the Tacoma (5k less).

On the other hand, I prefer the styling of the Taco and dat Toyota reliability. On the OTHER hand, I know that trucks are the one area Ford and other burger manufacturers take reliability and durability very seriously, so maybe the gap there isn't very big. I also kind of like the Jeep Hurricane. The hands-on impressions are making it sound incredible, diesel engine sounds sexy af, but the lack of a single or extended cab option atm is a huge turn off. It's also noticeably more expensive, and FCA reliability is concerning.

lads what about a nissan frontier for a barebones truck. i can get a pretty much new truck for 25k as a fucking leaf while the tacos pretty much start at 40k.
>>
>>20710217
there's a reason they're so fucking cheap. It's a shittily built 15 year old design.

look at the Colorado and Canyon instead. You can probably get a good deal on a GMC Canyon since they're selling slowly and pretty much identical to the Chevy Colorado.

It was fine when initially released around 2004, but as he years went on, like everything else at Nissan, quality took a nosedive. Things will break all the time, and the only reliable thing about it is the 4.0L VQ40DE V6 engine.

Blame Carlos Ghosn.

I've rode the lightning like that before, just be prepared for a quagmire if your luck doesn't hold out the next go around- If the cat was real plugged though, eating the wrath of Johnny Law could be the lesser of two evils because if you have that real hard restriction you can build a shitload of crankcase pressure and start pushing oil out seals and possibly smoke a bearing. Also could possibly catch your shit on fire, youtube "glowing catylytic converter" for a laugh.

Hey Auto. I don't post here. But I am hoping maybe someone can give me some ideas or answer to this question(s). What can cause an air bag to not deploy?

Some background of the situation.

I own a 2009 prius. My girl was in an accident due to someone running a stop sign. They impacted the front driver side headlight area and smashed it in(Frame is bent and twisted etc). She was then pushed off to the side and impacted a stop sign dead center. The passenger side suffered damage as well (mostly bent and folded metal from impact?). Not one air bag deployed throughout the car.

Just some FYI information here:
We never had a warning light for airbags.

We had the car serviced by toyota about a 1 - 1 1/2 years ago for the faulty brake actuator and they never mentioned codes for the air bag or anything at all.

We had some body work done a few months ago (4-5). Some lady backed into us in a parking lot and was fixed through the ladies insurance company.

I may be stupid, but is it possible for body shops to deactivate air bag sensors and forget to turn them on? or is it just a unplug the battery and fuck with them kind of thing?

When i use or hear the term fender bender, I think being backed into or bumped at low speeds etc. Both cars going at least 30, I would expect something to pop.

she ended up with a concussion from her head smacking into the door/column. Im still surprised that the curtain didn't at least go off.

but like the previous anon >>20704714

It may have been when the other driver attempted to turn her car, most of the force was forced into the very front of the frame etc and caused the airbags to not deploy.

EDR tools and shit are out of the questions for me, so I am waiting till monday to go pull some OBDll codes and see if anything weird appears.

Here is a question, with the frame mangled and shit, I should get some type of SRS codes correct? if not, then there is/was something wrong with the car.

If no one died or was even crippled, you're better off not having the airbags deploy. They're actually more likely to cause minor injuries than prevent them. Preventing major injuries is what they're designed for.
>>
>>20704518
Airbags typically don't deploy in a low speed collision. Usually the first thing that trips in a major collision is the fuel delivery system that completely kills the engine and prevents it from starting unless reset.

In yurop the toyotas that use the bmw diesels are pretty reliable. The diesel focus can pass emissions standards in most EU countries without the dpf, much like the m57 i6 diesel. Many engines can be unfucked if you remove the dpf if diesel, reroute pcv into a proper catch can and block off EGR.
Avoid certain models like the early tfsi that guzzle oil, or the older i4 bmw's that stretch the timing chain. The psa THP engine is basically that bmw i4 and they still stretch the chain nowadays

How incompetent has Daimler to be to make no profit of such a popular car? They sold tons of them even during the Crossover hype and they still lost about 4,000,000€ per year. Why didn't they just make a Crossover version of the ForFour like the Fiat Panda or the Suzuki Ignis? How can such a popular car fall from grace when they made a huge profit per unit sold?

How does /o/ let out their racing aggression?

I just did a bit of a street race (mostly safe, no other cars around, etc) for the first time in years and it was 10/10. Too spooked to do it often though cause I don't wanna get got by Uncle Sam.

Karting seems to be the only option I can really think of that's not wildly illegal.

There are three different kinds of technicians at dealerships:

- The young guys just starting out and cutting their teeth,
- The old heads who have been doing it for years and can fix anything, but choose to keep working on the same make and models over and over because they've mastered all the little repair shortcuts and turn mad hours, and
- the idiots who got really, really good at the most common repairs but can't do anything else

It's mostly groups 1 and 3, because all the good people will move on to a more fulfilling job, or possibly open up their own shop. Nobody wants to retire on flat rate.
>>
>>20705883

yep, most shops require their guys to provide their own tools. this may or may not apply to really specialized tools and equipment

Here in NZ qualified techs make $24-$28 /hr for Jap brands and $30+/hr for european brands, add on bonuses and you make jack fucking shit per year. Only money in mechanical is for heavy diesel techs.

Most service managers/bosses are dicks who only care about end of month budget.
Service advisors generally know less about cars than the customers and we have to do their job for them. Then they come and complain to us how they have so much work? Like wtf

I wish someone had told me how dealerships will replace you in the blink of an eye if you ask for a decent wage.

For anyone in NZ, dont waste your time doing an apprentice for mechanical, jump onto electrical or plumbing, you make 2-3x the amount a mechanic does.
