I grew up being really into cars but could never justify buying a car until I graduated college. When I graduated, I bought a used automatic 2013 mazda3 with 80k miles for a great price since I wanted to be financially smart about it since I moved to a new state. I've always wanted to learn stick and own something small and fun like a Miata but since I don't know how to drive stick, I didn't do it right off the bat. I recently got a raise making 90k at my job so I'm saving around $3500 a month after expenses. The first problem I'm having is how to switch cars if I do. the Mazda can be traded in at a dealership for ~7k which I'm not 100% sure is a good price or I could buy a Miata and sell it private later. A dealership near me is selling an 03 Miata with 58k miles but they want 15k which seems high. Alternatively, there's someone selling a 04 Miata with 165k miles for 6500. I think I can get a better price private party but I'm not sure how big a deal high miles is. Would it be realistic for me to buy either and learn stick before driving it home either from the prior owner or a friend. I'm also a little torn on if I should even get rid of the mazda3 in the current car market, it's been a very reliable car and for an automatic, it's a ton of fun.

Keep the 3, miatas are toys mostly fren.

I find it weird that you can just wait a few months and buy all of these cars for cash but you’re intentionally lowballing towards the cheapest shitboxes imaginable. If you’re trying to save money, don’t buy a car you’ll have to dump ten grand into just to keep it running a few years from now. Save your pennies, buy a decent modern vehicle and enjoy it

Poor traction and handling from the car.

Any of the Teslas have ~400 HP easily but handling is so much easier that even a granny can floor it and have the car go where you want it to.

This. This is how American performance cars work:
>buy car
>add more power
>add more power
>go straight line
>bob, what if you over steer or under steer?
>the car has steering
>when you turn the wheel the front is real twitchy so it oversteers
>Bob, thats not what that means
>bob, I mean what if it fishtails?
>you just get on the brakes and hope it stops
This is why we have those stang and corvettes losing it going straight videos. Americans do not understand the basics of car handling but buy 300hp cars and then add another 300hp to them.

Looking for a daily car in Germany under 20k. I like Japanese cars but if it has to be German then it should at least be a Mercedes.
Any tips? I currently drive an old Lexus but it's not easy to maintain any longer.

Oxidation, vibration and heat cycles age rubber. Over time all that stuff gets worn out or brittle and cracks. It doesn't matter where you live.
CV boots, oil gaskets and o rings (not just in the engine), radiator hoses, vacuum lines, suspension bushings etc are all going to be at the end of their life. A car that old is due for a complete tear down and rebuild if you want it to be reliable or else you're going to spend every weekend fixing some bullshit if it's your dd.

ehh, not sure about the vacuum lines. got a 30+ year old toyota and im quite certain the vacuum lines are the originals, as well as the heater outlet hose kek. I think it hasn't really been disturbed so there's no leaks yet. Got a spare on hand juuust in case though.

he has the right idea, but wrong thing. unless these new oils heat up quicker or something, oil needs to be at operating temp (and temp gauge only measures coolant temps,usually after it's left the engine, and not the oil temp which is what matters here) before you can start hammering on it
i know a guy at work who almost always revs his camry to 5-6k rpm on startup. no idea why, but the poor engine sounds like a goddamn diesel lmao

These are the people you are forced to share roads with (and threads apparently) who will wax on and on about endangering the public without realizing that without healthy outlets for automotive passion, this is what happens. Not one person depicted in that webm has ever attempted to lobby for a local, affordable track-nor has anyone in this thread that’s saying this is nigger behavior. I hope one of these guys slams into you at 120 and kills everyone involved.
