Why shouldn't I go buy a 2018 Mazda 6 Touring tomorrow morning? Seems like a decently nice value, I know its not very fast though. Any alternatives I should consider?

OP, that car looks like a bag of hammered shit. Buy Shelby Mustang GT350. You might say no i done want or need that car. But go drive one. You'll buy it. Immediately have buyers remorse anytime your not driving it. But my God when you are driving it is the only time you truly feel alive anymore. And if you really got big boy nuts. Buy the Shelby F150.

Was it released in your country?
Was it mechanically reliable?

I just found out here in Australia they were not sold at dealerships but have been imported - shocking as they are quite common to see around here....

Sold here across the ditch both generations. I have a wagon R I enjoy the shitbox style but fuck my ocd can't handle the non symmetricalness of that one.
>>
Apparently it was sold in Europe for less than a year between early 2010 and early 2011 and then axed due to lacking sales. Makes you wonder whether they've even recouped the costs of getting it tested and homologated. Also I would've expected a vehicle like that to do better here, it's got pretty practical dimensions. Maybe it was lacking a smaller engine option for city drivers, or a diesel.

I'm sure there are many (like me and you) who have complete faith in their ability to drive. However, no matter how good a driver we are, there is always someone else on the road who will kill/maim me due to their inability to drive. I want to know how my car will protect me from that person.

This. Bad idea.

I have $100k to spend on a car. I've got an 03 Camry with 300k miles that I don't plan on getting rid of, but now that I've saved up a lot of money I want to treat myself. I'm caught between blowing money on a Cybertruck tri-motor when they come out or something like a vintage Lamborghini or Ferrari as I've found a few in the $50k or cheaper range. If you had a $100k budget what would you buy?

If it's a 4WD model that is a pretty good price. Do check the common problem spots before dishing out that kind of money, and, of course, try to talk them down a bit.

The “Definition” of masculinity with regard to cars has changed over the decades. Back in the early 50’s and 60’s light, spirited roadsters were the definition of British masculinity. Now it’s huge 3 tonne American trucks.

Are wind deflectors worth it?
I'm looking into them but I'm having a hard time deciding. Do they allow you to crack the windows at 70 mph without getting (too much) wind noise? Is the air flow from the cracked windows actually noticeable? How much can you open the window and have the deflectors still work?

Is it true what they say about red cars? More tickets, higher insurance, cop magnet, etc.

Do you have any personal experiences? Did you buy a red car and regret it?

Did you get pp in ur bum?

I think there are a lot of other factors at play, such as market demographics for your specific model.

If you compare two cars that are the same make, trim, etc, then usually yes the red cars statistically get pulled more, get into more accidents, and have slightly higher premiums as a result. compared to say a dark green, beige, or white car.

But is this because cops pull red cars more often, or just that people that buy red cars drive like jackasses more often? Which is the cause and which is the effect?

My cheapest car to insure is an 86 dark Red metallic corvette. Roughly 216USD per Period. My most expensive car to insure is my 1987 200SX SE (black) at roughly 340USD per Period.

My daily driver is a 1986 200sx XE Sedan in mist blue, the ultimate old person car, at 240USD per Period. The corvette with more than double the displacement and double the HP is cheaper.

Why Is the Vette Cheaper? My assumption is most people with an 86 vette are boomers that keep it in the garage, waxed, and drive it 5 miles a month to cars and coffee so they statistically have very few wrecks.

I have not gotten a ticket in any of these cars. But I do get pulled over a lot in the blue car, presumably due to the tint which is 35% VLT stacked on the factory in glass 95% vlt

This. Good, comprehensive post. One thing I might add is that cars that are more likely to be purchased in red, i.e. sports cars are more likely to attract all of OP's concerns. Just a theory though.

No

at the macro scale of markets like the US, it does play out that way, except red got overtaken by white a few years back

Just get an older half ton. They're still small by modern standards. If that's "too big" for you then maybe trucks aren't for you.

Toyota tax. I just sold my 84 ranger with a 5 speed, v6, and 4x4 and it took months and only got 1,500 despite having new tires and a bunch of new parts. If it had been a Toyota someone would have bought it for 5k after 3 days of being listed.
>>
>>22766325
This.

S10s and Rangers are both pretty decent trucks in their own ways, usually they require a bit more maintenance. They're also everywhere with common engines so parts are very easy to find.

The 4.3 is a torquey sucker and can take a good beating. And I've heard nothing but good about the 4.0 in the ranger.

>boomers aren't selling their mid size trucks and are just running them until they get 400k miles
It's unironically cheaper to buy a new Tacoma than a used one sometimes.

Truck bed keeps squeaking like a sunuvabitch whenever I take it out on bumpier unpaved road. Bought it in May and haven’t had any issues, actually been really satisfied with the purchase. This weekend I’ll have some time to take a look at it, any suggestions for what to keep an eye out for?

It's just new, it'll make new car noises for the first year until things settle in/loosen up a bit. GM has very poor quality control so it's not unusual for brand new vehicles to sound like old jalopies. I would recommend crawling underneath it to lubricate the bushings, check the frame mounting points where the box attaches, double check to make sure nothing is loose, and then trade it in for a Tundra so you don't have to worry about it breaking. Tundras can twerk at over 140mph and still maintain their structural integrity.

My civic lease is ending next year and I want to get into something with a lot more power. I dont care about reliability, to and from work is roughly 6 miles. Is this the best bang for my buck? Roomy, because I'm tall and fat, under 40k, v8.

It has about the same turning radius as a car the same size. It’s literally a powerful four door daily/tourer. You are seething for what? Consumerbase aside, the 392 is a proven naturally aspirated powerful engine and probably the only RWD v8 sedan left in America. Only gripe is they don’t come in manual
