I could’ve sworn that was James May at the 4:00 mark. Loved his take on SUV’s though



Loved early 90’s Jeremy Clarkson. I was shocked to hear such high praise towards the Viper from him. One thing I love about that car is the unpredictable nature of it. You never know when it’s going to kill you and there’s a certain kind of exhilaration to that. Similar to the Ferrari F40, which had a similar attribute whenever you winded up those turbos. I’ll take either feeling any day of the week over something like a Bugatti Veyron Super Sport, which was so predictable that even Captain Slow himself was able to navigate to 259mph. Reaching top speed in a Viper, which wasn’t even close to that high, was too ludicrous of a endeavor that it was hardly ever attempted. This due in part to its ridiculously loud side mounted exhaust & neck snapping torque.

This Kei car boasts power windows, that you can reach at all 4 doors.Electric mirrors, A/C, and a radio.
what else do you really need?
At 126,000 Kilometers it's still fresh.
Back again with the column shift auto, gear shifts are available. And it has brakes.
Featuring a Honda 3cylinder Zinger, It goes.
The wipers gracefully smear the windows with wiper fluid, which dries after a few minutes.
At night time you can turn the lights on. And beep at bad drivers.
This Honda life gets a 7/10. It's actually fun to drive.
The Kei cars never disappoint.

I prefer not to die

edit: I think there is a difference of "it's there I can feel it kind exhilaration" vs. OMG I'm going to die.

End thread. Honda Fit rules

Toyota Corolla CE 2004 if you don’t need the extra space but it’s like saying I don’t like extra cookies.

I would have said Scion xB, but a 2 second google seems to tell me they're a lot more than $5k for whatever reason...

yea but xB just looks like it's a box and you can stick all the crap in it, if I want a beater it better be able to carry as well.

it's more "ricer" (the whole Scion is), but if I want a reliable beater with lots of space I see xB being pretty good though it seems to be well over $5k so moot point...

Yeah not sure about it yet... first one I’ve seen in the wild

The Land Rover dealer is right next to the Porsche dealer here, and I dropped off the 981 for an oil service on Saturday morning. We decided to wait, and so we walked over to a good breakfast place a couple of blocks down. During that walk, we saw three new Defenders. Two of them were on flatbed trucks, which we decided wasn't a very good sign, unless the dealer was trying to keep as many miles off them as possible, perhaps?
