Wanting to buy my first truck to haul around a boat and a jet ski. The weight is very small so hauling weight is not a worry for most trucks. In planning on spending like 10-16k on a used truck, looking more towards ram than anything else.

In my price range, most in seeing around mid 2000's with 100-150k miles. Is it worth putting that much money into a truck that old with that many miles? I'm sure truck engines are better with that high mileage than smaller cars. Any suggestions?
Engines big and small live long lives now. Service any timing components, change fluid, and you should be fine. Might need an alternator and/or starter.
My 2008 Expedition EL (5.4 3V V8) has 300K miles on it and is running fine.
something that light, you can get away with a lot. I'd aim for less truck and fewer miles. A 3.6L ram isn't the most sexy thing in the world but it's decently reliable and comparatively cheap to fix
if you are that worried about money, don't get a boat or jet ski.
Consider a frontier for a mid size and a f-150 for a full size in that price bracket

I want to live /debtfree/ and am planning on selling my focus ST and buying a used pickup. I also miss the old beater that I learned to drive on.

Wanted to completely pay it off with some change left over so something around 10k? Recommended models? Tacomas seem super overpriced and I always liked the look of rangers.

I have about 4k left on the ST I was gonna pay it off and sell private seller first before all of that.

Im also looking into the f150s for the mid-late 2000s. They seem pretty affordable for around 80k miles no?
Yeah not too bad. I just don't know if it's worth it. You got a nice ST only to sell it for a way older vehicle. Straight up downgrade unless you HAVE to do truckin things. I'm kinda in the same boat though. Sick of dailying a stick shift and I'd like to be in something comfy but my 07 mustang runs great so it's hard to justify a downgrade. So I'm sticking with it, saving up another 10k then I can at least get anything newer.
No they are terrible trust me. I don’t know what year but as soon as they started using the triton motors they went to shit. Any of the trucks that have the 5.4 or 4.6 2v are mint though. Gutless but reliable.
Brainlet here.

Why is the st so bad i you wanna live debt free if you are so close to paying it off?

>selling my focus ST

Post ST

i'm about to pay full cash for a used one in two days. what i'm im in for. Will i get bored of it or something? I found it for 15k and i will pay cash

>Sick of dailying a stick shift
how long is your commute and u got sick of it? u own an st aswell?

My dad is almost the same thing, he knows some shit about cars, but he's very boomer to deal with mechanics, he simply don't accept that we need to use the torque wrench or demineralized water for cars.
I don't like to ask help to him with my lil' shop because he would say this kind of shit.

No you get a new car. If it was a horse it’d be put out to pasture.
Then the process starts over

You are more reliant on your car than it is on you. Namely because it's an inanimate object.

check it to see if it is damaged by putting 12 volts to the wires on the back, a green light should come on for the factory reset.

Don't do this please
Just wire it up outside the car and see if you get the reset led.
If you don't, its toast and you need a new one.
If you do replace it, make sure yountest the replacement in the same way before you put it in

I'm in Canada so I think street legality isn't an issue considering I've seen these things on the road. Disappointing to know they're underpowered but I think having a neat truck like that would be pretty unique
I found a 2007 PT Cruiser under 80k miles for under $4000. It's been for sale since November. My other car got totaled and the insurance money will almost entirely cover the cost of the car, I should end up paying at most $1000 out of pocket. Is it a good buy?
is drifting actually an efficient way to turn assuming you dont crash?
so it's just for showing off?

thinking about picking up a 370Z as a daily driver car in the next year or so. what should I look out for in these cars? also is the automatic or manual faster? traffic in my state is dogshit and I kind of prefer flappy paddles
>traffic is dogshit
>which one is faster
not constantly but it can be. I'm leaning towards the auto due to convenience but if the stick is significantly better performance-wise like a BRZ or something then obviously I'd get the manual
Honestly, I can't answer. It just struck me as a bit of a giggle. Me personally, I just plain like manuals, even in traffic, and something like a 370 has enough power for me that I wouldn't really care if one version gets slightly better numbers than the other.

If I were up in the air about it I'd look to test drive both versions to find out if one or the other obviously sucked compared to the other.
Manual is faster and more of a fun drive but the secondary cylinder on the clutch is known to fail, so to be honest if I was buying another one I'd go for the auto.

So I actually own a Nismo 370Z, and the manual is quite comfortable in traffic.

I've driven some friend's auto and the paddles are fine...but you lose some of the really wonderful mechanical feeling of the car. They're fun and responsive, but the car was 110% made for manual.

>Is it possible to do truck camping in a Toyota Tacoma regular cab (60”) with two people?
in a 5ft bed? its gonna suck, you can do it a few days but more than that and your back will be fucked

also if you have a narrow cot/bed its gonna really suck. i have a mattress in the middle and all my stuff on the sides in cardboard boxes

cardboard boxes flex and deform to your body unlike rgid plastic crates... they also mold so you gotta keep replacing them.

What's the cheapest new truck that satisfies the following:
1. Full size pickup
2. Extended cab, standard bed
3. 4x4
4. Leather seats
ram probably. fca is giving away midtier for corona. 4x4 is the sticking point
Thanks. Just visited the RAM site and they let you configure the truck to an insane degree. Gonna have to study this shit.

Look at this fucking thing! Just look at this abomination and try telling me that there’s a God. If there ever was a God, then he left us a long fucking time ago.

Most people are buying EV cars now due to the imminent ICE bans.

I never understood why do a lot of car enthusiasts like this brand , sure they made a few cars that were great but i don't think any of them could be classified as legends. They never designed a car that looks amazing whereas even fucking jap brands have some breath taking designs , their newest cars are unreliable and most of them are ugly looking so why exactly do people like them ?

You smell that? Do you smell it? Huh!? -- DO YOU!?!?

Bangle turned that brand into one that sells cars that appeals to your mom and everyone else who doesnt care, and thus it is what it is.
Reading this after his post made me laugh so hard. Do they make this in manual and he didnt get it or are they all automatic?
they come as dual clutch autos or manuals
