He’s not a tranny like you desu

this is a very basic question but I don't know the answer.
mpg wise, is riding in low rpms always the best option ?

don't really know to put this, but my car reacts
noticeably better to the throttle at 3-4k rpm than on lower rpms.
it feels like the engine is working more efficiently.
is that the case ? does it affect mpg ?

You have a weight movement problem. Every unit of weight takes a unit of energy to move at a certain speed.
If you increase the weight, you'll need more power to move along. Thus, the engine will have to rev higher to produce more power to pull heavier loads.
Notable exception at past peak of the power band. Nothing past the peak will make the engine handle a load that the peak cannot satisfy.
>>
>>24752645
If manual transmission, no. The crankshaft is directly connected to the input shaft of the transmission through the clutch, a certain speed in a certain gear will always be the same RPM.

If automatic with an unlocked torque converter, yes. A torque converter is a fluid coupling, so crank RPM is not locked to input shaft RPM, and they will vary in relation to eachother depending on load.
>>
>>24752645
Cruising at 65 mph in top gear you may only be at, say 60% load for that rpm. You can climb a hill or fight a headwind (or accelerate) by giving it more gas and using more of the available power.

If it's an automatic it won't downshift (raise rpms) until the engine is giving all it's got at that rpm and you are demanding more from it. Then it kicks down a gear (or two, or three).

>>24749248
Generally yes, you run at low RPM's for mileage. This is why most automatics, when you're not pushing the gas down trying to quickly speed up, will go up to like 2.5-3k rpm then shift and try to maintain around 2k RPM.

i dont mean to be a contrarian douchbag, but I cant stand the look of most MK4 soups, they just look like overgrown miatas to me, the look of the MK3s is just so much better.

Not even controversial. The headlights look super dated, the styling in general is boring toyota except the wing. Just look at how bland those wheels are. Compare all of this to the FD RX7 which is a timeless design.

What brand new car fits this criteria?

>turbocharged 4-cylinder
>either eight-speed or 7-speed dual-clutch
>reliable brand, ie not european
>sedan or compact suv

I was excited to see the new Honda Civic as it met all my criteria, except it has a CVT, which sucks. The Accord has a 10-speed and turbo, though it’s rather pricey, sells for about $37.5K in my country.

I'm somewhat afraid of heights and I fly planes as well. I'm not bothered at all when I'm in a plane, probably because I'm strapped into the seat and have a window between me and the outside world, and also because I'm focused on flying the plane and usually looking off into the distance instead of down at the drop. (But even when I do look down it doesn't really bother me, even as a passenger.)

>turning a civil infraction you can ignore into a felony and multiple misdemeanors

Hello everyone,

I have been thinking about getting myself a new car recently.

I currently own a Kia Forte 2013 in a pretty good state, about 90k on the odometer, but the motor itself was changed by Kia about a year ago due to the piston problems the Forte had from 2011 to 2015. Change happened at around 80-85k.

I've been thinking about getting a 2022 Hybrid Elantra for the sake of saving on gas due to gas getting crazier and crazier prices around here (went up about 0.20$/liter in the last three months).

Now my questions are:
Considering:
A budget of 100.00CAD$ per week
With only choice purchasing and not leasing
In Quebec
Would a 2022 hybrid Elantra be a good choice?

You want to buy a new car when they are all marked up from the worst manufacturing shortage in history. You have a car with a brand new dealership installed motor with 10k on it. How about you wait a year before you hurt yourself.

I really like mine. It's a 2004. Got a great deal on it cuz the tranny was going. I Rebuilt the tranny. I replaced thermostat and housing and put in a new radiator. At 100,000 I change spark plugs and wires to once better to that model. Fixed a lot of the suspension stuff so it rides more like a Lincoln Continental than a Ford. Thought it sounded a little weak so put in a borla exhaust and added a k&n high performance air filter It seemed to give it a bit more boost and a nice rumble when your foot's on the gas. Car is a dream now. Nothing like riding around LA and the top down

Nigga what are you on about? Separate trunk? It has to be a wagon/hatch to be an original design? They made one of those already retard picrel. And many other full/midsize sedans of the same era have similar features.

Is it the best combination of low price and performance available on the used car market today?

>>24754173
C5 is the same platform, but cheaper. So…no?
>>
>>24754173
yeah

You lads know of any guide/forum/video on the IS-F? Mainly what to look out for before buying one. Any recalls etc.
I can't find anything objective on the net.
Thanks in advance.
