The average working class Swede, like any other working class people, prefers comfort and practicality without paying out of the ass for it. Which is why the V70 was the favoured car at the time, and still is for second hand Volvos.

The general consensus about Volvos is that they look like grandpa cars and are often driven by the stereotype. Nowadays this still holds as the hipsters and generally weird people end up driving the second hand ones, as it is a lot of value for money and they often remember their parents owning one.

Yeah I have one aswell. I always thought I was into BMWs until I drove several and concluded the suspension is stupidly firm and makes for a rather uncomfortable daily driver. They are not overly reliable, they have their faults. Thankfully a lot of information can be found on forums. Interior quality is average and the mileage on most of them is pretty damn high. This does not equal ''well maintained'' as most of the owners are indeed cheapskates who just want a large car on a budget.
>>
>>25924822
the suspension part is about BMWs or Volvos?
>>
>>25924825
BMW likely. Mine (328i) was also hard and it's uncomfortable on bad roads. I switched to non runflat tires and the ride quality became much, much better. I also noticed a ~25% increase in fuel mileage around town.

Runflats are shit but BMW loves em.

>>25925052
Back up this comment, S60 for about six years now and it’s by far the comfiest seats and ride I’ve had. That said when I switch over to winter tires there is a noticeable difference. You can’t underestimate the tire selection on the ride quality.

Dad's gf has a '00s S60. U-LEV car, which is all emissions nonsense. All of the fuel lines are internal to the tank.

I was fisting that tank past my god damn elbow to undo this thing to take it out and repair it, because a new tank is ~$2,000 and backordered for a year.

The quick disconnect cracked and just totally broke.

Fancy pants digitally controlled heatgun to get the old fitting off, an oetiker clamp for added safety, improved addedness, and added improvedness on the new fitting.

Even then, the nipple's retention lip is so close to the regulator body I had to trim part of the new fitting.

Weird, noncey, and annoying. I fucking hate it.

Not your typical weeb /o/ thread but what do you boat fags prefer inboards or outboards whats the pros and cons
>>

Inboards.
>anyone else, especially reasonable people
Outboards.
>>
>>25923140
>>>/n/
also, outboards are nice because they are easily portable moduals that can be replaced or worked on
they limit the amount of seacock/through-hull maintence and overall are just nice
the only reason to have an inboard engine is if you have a large ship or some kind of racing powerboat
all small pleasurecraft like aluminum fishing/pontoon would be retarded to opt for an inboard rather than out

like towing/pulling a boat with no working starter in the hopes the water turns the prop fast enough to kick the motor over?
I doubt it, unless you can get the dead boat fucking flying across the water

probably depends on a lot of factors like the gear ratio between the prop/engine and size/pitch/number of blades on the prop

I have a net worth of around $170k. I recently sold my car. It was inefficient. I've been looking into getting a Chevy Bolt EV 2023 for $28k. It's apparently an AMAZING car. I need a car. A lot of people don't seem to realize this, but Teslas are pieces of shit. And it's not even close. If people did the research on profit margins on those things, they beat out most other companies by far. They're trash. They break easily. And the self driving is a meme. And in a car? You should be relying on yourself. Thoughts, bros? With how high gas is, I feel like an EV is a lot better with how often gas prices fluctuate.

If you're going to get a BEV, the Chevy Bolt is probably your best option. It's been around for 10 years.

You're right that Teslas are trash. And frankly Tesla has really hampered the progress of BEV adoption by trying to market and make their cars as edgy luxury cars instead of reaching the wider customer market by making small and cheap econo BEVs. This would have been a big seller especially in cities where space is tight and city MPGs where BEVs perform best. And they would have reached demand from city utility and business vehicles.

Fortunately stelantis is picking up the slack in the cities. The fiat 500 e is already selling extremely well and the upcoming jeep avenger will likely sell extremely well too. It will also be interesting to see what Alfa has in the works to kick Tesla out of the luxury market as well.

California specifically mentions that PHEVs are allowed but have to be able to go at least 50 miles on a charge, this should help weed out shitty PHEVs like that Wrangler, but I wished they made that minimum requirement higher
