I'm tired of overtly complex engineering, designs, and safety features. These should be optional and reserved for luxury or higher-end vehicles, but not the industry standard for even the most basic of shitboxes.

I'm right and I'm tired of pretending I'm not.

You'll never get those cars because people have unlimited desires.
Get a Vespa then faggot
Go buy a VW beetle or a model T then. a car really isn't more simple than that

Hmm good point but I disagree completely

>DETROIT (AP) — Hyundai and Kia are recalling nearly 3.4 million vehicles in the U.S. and telling owners to park them outside due to the risk of engine compartment fires.

The recalls cover multiple car and SUV models from the 2010 through 2019 model years including Hyundai’s Santa Fe SUV and Kia’s Sorrento SUV.

Documents posted Wednesday by the U.S. National Highway Traffic Safety Administration say the anti-lock brake control module can leak fluid and cause an electrical short, which can touch off a fire while the vehicles are parked or being driven.

The automakers are advising owners to park outdoors and away from structures until repairs are done.

>Seems like all of the recalled vehicles are the ones made in GA and AL. Seeing how they'd show up high and drunk off their ass every day, I'm not that surprised.
Is that where the Australian cars are made? Because it isn't where the Australian cars are made. But Australia is having the same problems despite not getting cars made by those who "show up high and drunk off their ass every day" in GA and AL.
Now it's time to blame the customers for not changing the oil instead of admitting it has always been, in entirety, a series of serious shitty design flaws.
>only evs spontaneously combust
>7 incidents where cars have serious problems that are quickly addressed by responsible manufacturers
>That's totally the same as one manufacturer having the recall for engine fires end up causing even more engine fires. Also the same as one company having an unbroken line of self igniting problems stretching a full decade. Look at everyone else, they occasionally have a problem. It's all the same.
Since you can obviously tell the difference between normal companies fixing problems in a timely manner and Hyundai doing the opposite, are you paid or do you have Stockholm syndrome?
They used to get flamed right away like this.

But they seem to have sorted it out.

most money is made at point of sale
the profit margin on repairs is farely low
if the company continues to provide spares and repairs that's effort they are not putting into new products

your competitors who make less durable products can sell them more often
if your products are non serviceable and thus disposable you can optimise for ease and speed of assembly
+ you dont have to provide any spares for old products let alone any documentation archive
all the scum bag savings can be put into research and development and make use of the latest advances in technology

Riveting aluminum alloys is one of those things where you either pay a lot for someone who knows what they are doing with a cheap fastener, or pay a lot for an expensive fastener that can be used by someone with no idea what they're doing.

Well, yeah, that's what service bulletins are.
That one is from Ford via Mitchell, but you can find the same SB elsewhere.

It's more about what you bolt to where and how, but yeah, getting all gay with a hole saw on any aluminum alloy without doing some sort of preventative corrosion control is 'tarded.
Have you owned any stainless steel appliances? They're impossible to keep clean. A SS car would look horrible covered in a million fingerprints and finger smudges.

kek I got stuck on some lower ball joints one weekend. Tried everything under the sun, ball joint separators, wedges, propane torch, caveman sledge hammer. Finally got it out with this pitman puller from amazon and the big milwaukee impact.
Propane torch?
Did you destroy your ball joint?
Anytime I do work like that I prep the night before by applying generous amounts of picrel.
This. Also a really big sledge can be the best tool in the shop.
If all else fails just replace the control arms.
Also if you're in the rust belt you pretty much need an acetylene torch.

Then the engine and transmission would be sideways. I can open the hood ans undo some bolts to pull the engine or drop the transmission on my forester. On my element that's a sub frame drop. Fuck inline 4 pots.

The state ended their program but several counties (including Spokane) still have emissions testing. Seems like a poor tax because Spokane isn't big enough nor dense enough to have smog problems.
conversions tend to be a lot more reliable since there's way less things to go wrong than a new EV with a billion fuckin sub-computers to run the heated dildo warmers
Very true. Interally we tend to discuss all the shit we hate and wish they wouldn't include, but the designers will never listen. A lot of older people buy these things too and they get really pissed at all the technology bugging out and needing resets.
The true way of """""""""""""""""""""zero emission""""""""""""""""""""" is to unironically killing self.
Why would you exist to virtue-signal """""""""""""""""""""zero emission""""""""""""""""""""" when you exhale CO2 all the time?

who would the cops/insurance find at fault here?
25 replies and 2 images omitted. Click here to view.
whoever programmed the traffic light.
if the protected left turn was longer than 2 seconds, people wouldn't feel the need to run the light.
where i'm from people will ALWAYS run the light if an (exclusively) protected left is too short, but I don't outright run it like some people do. people will not tolerate waiting longer than 2 cycles to make that left.
this is under the assumption that the other side of the intersection has a red left arrow now, rather than a green ball. if you have a green ball, you can pull out into the middle of the intersection and wait for an opening to go or until the light turns yellow.
>The retard breaking the law by running a red light.
>I think they'd split the fault to both drivers. Just because you have a green light doesn't mean you can floor it disregarding whether or not the intersection is clear

actually it kind of does. I was once in exactly this kind of accident. I was the driver proceeding through the green light going straight. I T-Boned someone who was turning left. His car was fucked, my crown vic had tiny dent in plastic bumper. His insurance paid for a new bumper for my car.

Ultimately, because there were cars the left lane turning left, the person who I hit was unable to see me advancing. He didn't even have a red light actually, he had a green light, just not a green arrow. This means it was his responsibility to make sure traffic was clear before he proceeded through the intersection. Because there were cars/SUVs in the lane left of me, which were turning left, he was unable to see me. However, I had right of way because I had a green light and I was going straight.

Also, because of these cars, I was not able to see him turning left initially. Tbh the other driver was a retard. I was kind of driving fast, I was speeding actually, and as soon as he got into middle of the intersection he just stopped and looked at me like a deer in the headlights as I slammed on my breaks and skidded 20-30 feet to hit the passenger door of his new BMW suv. If he just would've hit the gas instead of brake when he saw me, the entire accident would've been avoided
One driver beat a red light, shouldn't have done that.
The other driver is a mindless lemming who should have their ability to breed taken away from them so their stupid genes are never passed along. Fucking NPC.
