what are they "tightening"?

muffler gasket.
Yeah, they tried to explain it to me. But talking cars with me is like trying to teach Spanish to a 2 year old. Just beady eyes and staring off into the distance.

I'm pretty sure there are some two year olds that have a better grasp on Spanish than you do on English.  :lol:

Probably cars as well.  Wacky, when you say "kickback" do you actually mean "backfire"?

I'm at about 125k with my '06 Pontiac G6. It still runs, ok, but definitely starting to show signs of age. I plan on using it until the Tesla Model 3 comes out in late 2017 (but most likely late) 2018. Putting my reservation for it down next week too  :gocho: I was planning on getting a new car anyways in about 2017/18 anyways, so this coincides well. IMO I'm fine with anyone wanting to drive a car until it doesn't drive anymore, but I would like to get a new one every 10-12 years or so. I think it's nice to get upgraded to some new tech, better ride, and something that might fit your lifestyle better, and removing a potentially major headache from your life before it becomes one.

For reference, I drove my dad's car ('93 Infiniti J30 that he got from a old lady who basically only used it to go to the store) when I turned 16 until I graduated HS in '07 and got my now current car. He had that car for about 5 years before I drove it, and it was also just about time for it to go too. It had about 150k on it, you really had to baby it to get it going in the winter, and the leather was really starting to wear in it, also not having a CD player sucked (then). Getting my G6 at that point was pretty sweet upgrade at the time, and was perfect for driving to and from K-State, and it was better on gas mileage.

I am firmly on Team Drive It Until It Dies.  Every car I've owned made it past 200k and only one of them truly died on me so I have been pretty lucky in that sense.

:curse: To both of you! I mean I'll be driving and putting on the gas and then it feels like big foot just punched the front of my car and then it starts accelerating until big foot hits my car again randomly. Feels dangerous in traffic, because sometimes the kickback is so strong, it shuts off the car.

Sounds like you don't know how to drive a car with a manual transmission.

I'm pretty sure he was referring to Big Foot, not a "big foot".

My last car hit 100k the week before some idiot texted and drove into the back of it. Got a nice check and a car with 40 miles on it

Wait, you guys don't lease? LOL. Good job idiots, investing in a depreciating asset is a great way to go about life. I'm sure you all have no problem lighting piles of money on fire to keep warm in the winter either.
