HAHAHA YOU WILL NEVER OWN A CAR
ALL THOSE YEARS RIDING THE BUS WHEN YOU SHOULD'VE BEEN SECURING A LOW INTEREST RATE FOR CAR OWNERSHIP
YOU HAVE BEEN OFFICIALLY PRICED OUT OF THE CAR MARKET
YOUR BUS PASS FEES ARE DUE
That car looks like shit
That wasn't really the point. It's the same car that OP posted
Dont care what it looks like... i absolutely lust for an Outback Wilderness for the mix of comfort, fuel economy and sheer technical capabilities.
This thing will take you almost anywhere, without shaking so much that your liquefied intestines drain from your anus after the trail. An extremely practical yet legitimately capable design.
>waiting for next year to purchase
The Outback Wilderness will take younto places where you will find only huwhite people (or limited compatible alies). Nogs and the city dwelling israelite fears the all wheel drive, high clearance station wagon as it can take its owners to interesting places, to meet interesting people who discuss interesting things over remote location campfires.
Is it really worth going from 33 to 26 mpg just for that extra 0.7 inches of clearance? Genuine question, I'm eyeing a regular Outback. Can always swap out tires for geolandars later if needed.
>add a roof cargo carrier, external water and fuel packs and HF radio antenna for additional drag and swag.
If 7mpg is a deal breaker for you, you might be a poorfag lol
at that point why not just add all that to a regular v6 outback and lift it?
don't get me wrong the wildy edition is sexy as fuck, but the markup seems high for shit I can just do to the one I already own, I care more about the capabilities anyway
I suppose if you are comfortable with doing the lift, skid plates and could forgo the turbo then I suspect your plan would be the better path.
For myself, this thing would be trailered and towed behind a class A diesel that gets 10 mpg going downhill so buying something that is out of the box capable for me is better since I'm not mechanically inclined to upgrade suspension, differential etc.
I just wanted it to use as an all terrain shuttlecraft for my land yacht that can explore overland places, be inexpensive and still be extremely comfortable.
If you planned to daily drive it then yes, the wilderness is way overkill for trips to the office or supermarket.
If you have a Subaru the only place you’re driving is to gay pride events
>liquidations & proceeds
It's because of the surveillance requirements for all new vehicles starting in the 2026 model year, used cars are currently being stockpiled and will be sold at prices above new vehicles once normies realize every car has a breathalyzer/interior cameras.
All you have to do drink driving is close one eye and then you can see just fine. They should just add that warning sticker
Is this def going to happen? If so I will never buy a new car ever again. Fuck having interior cameras looking at me.
>The federal infrastructure bill passed into law in August gave America’s most important auto safety regulator, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), three years to write rules for alcohol monitoring systems in cars. Under the law, the agency can seek an extension.
>The word “passive” is important there. Some courts have required drivers convicted of driving impaired to install breathalyzer systems called alcohol ignition interlocks. These will prevent their cars from starting if they detect alcohol on the driver’s breath. The NTSB’s requirement doesn’t mean automakers would install such systems on every vehicle.
>Many of today’s cars already have systems monitoring the driver’s attention. They are included with hands-free highway driving assistants, like GM’s Super Cruise or Tesla’s Full Self-Driving system.
>Automakers have invented several ways of monitoring driver attention. Some systems use a camera that monitors the driver’s eyes. They alert the driver and sometimes deactivate driver assists if the driver’s eyes drift from the road. Others, like Tesla’s system, detect the tiny muscular inputs that a human hand naturally makes to ensure there’s a hand on the steering wheel even if the car is assisting with steering.
NHTSA can delay it but the impaired driving law was snuck into the 2021 "infrastructure" bill. But the NTSB is hard pressed on enforcing the law, but they have no power to require it in all vehicles, it'll have to be done by NHTSA. But the fact that this technology already exsists just confirms that all tesla owners are bugman homosexuals.
toyota also has the same muscular input required with their radar cruise control active.
are prices will stay high? doubt it
>HAHAHA YOU WILL NEVER OWN A CAR
But I do own a car. I bought a pre-registered Toyota Aygo for £10,995, cash in 2021 with five miles on the clock. I’ve done ten thousand miles in it and it now costs almost the same to buy a used one with 16,000 miles. I think I did alright.
i didnt even know they made 1.0 liter engines that wernet motorcycles
It’s a great little car. Has Apple CarPlay, modern safety features, a reversing camera and is cheap as fuck to run. According to the onboard computer I have averaged 58.4mpg since I got it. Fastest I’ve been in it was 85mph on the motorway but apparently it’ll do 99mph.
it must be something for the UK market only i havent seen one ever before but i will keep my eyes out for it on the road. they must have caught up on the microchip supplies because i am seeing a ton of new model tacomas and camrys though
that 60mpg sounds really nice too. you are going to love that in a year or so when gas hits $20/gallon
is the 1.0 turbo charged or is this a hybrid eelctric? or is their modern tech just that good that they get the 60 mpg off naturally?
Nope, no turbo and not hybrid, it’s just small and light. Also cheap to insure, i was £660 for my first year of driving insurance (it’s my first car), a lot of people pay £2000-£3000 for their first year. It did help that I was 32 when I passed my test though.
Its not turbocharged or electric.
The 1l engines are quite popular in europe and not even that bad.
I drove a new 1l turbocharged skoda with around 120hp a few days ago and was shocked how nice it actually was. Really great reliable and cheap engines. 4l/100km is possible to achieve too.
So it’ll barely be fast enough to keep up on any of the 130km roads in europe.
for the person who lives in a city where the top speeds are like 40km it doestn really matter
The maximum speed limit in the UK is 70mph. I find myself overtaking Mercs and Audis all the time.
>living in paki land unironically.
As gay as germany is, its infinitely better than that shitheap of a hovel.
I’m quite happy in Scotland and have no desire to move.
Fucking hell I wish we burgers had more car like this
American ego far too fragile for practical automobiles
Its peak clownworld with the bags under its eyes and wretched expression. Its humiliation ritual: the car.
Sorry, I don’t speak /misc/. It gets me from A to B and I even profit when I claim mileage at work because it’s so cheap to run.
Why? It works and moves 4/5 people around and is cheap. Not everybody needs a 6000pound behemoth that can haul 2 normal sized americans at once.
Dont get me wrong, i love unnecesary cars and own an Audi A6 with the 4.2 V8.
But most of the time a little shitbox with 50hp can get you around.
lets see a crash between that cuckbox and a 6k lb behemoth
>Judging a car by it's looks instead of on an economic / financial basis as a depreciating asset from point A to B
Keep your fagmobile off my road
>bragging about owning a pod on wheels
carcels go into massive debt just to go to wagecage every day lonely hahaha. Chad smashes big booty latinas he finds on the bus while staying rich
Import millions of illegal beaners into car centric country who consume but don't produce, be surprised consumables like cars get more expensive.
>extra israelite tax
So whats stopping me from buying used or direct from a manufacturer?
>bought a 2001 e46 for 14k in 2019
Been working okay so far and it's very easy to work on. That's probably 3x what I should have paid, but the only choice is between something like that or a 4-cyl fwd automatic with 200k miles and cumstains everywhere. I would buy it again in a heartbeat, and I don't care how much I have to pay to keep it going until I die. I will NOT get in the automatic ecobox and I will NOT take the bus.
Probably the only option we burgers have in that price range, new is that shitty Mitsubishi Mirage for context
How does adding $15k to the sales price magically make more semiconductors?
First, don't buy ANYTHING made during the covid time frame..quality control is absolutely shit and used substandard substitute parts. Every single item I have purchased from that time has turned out to be complete shit.
Second, dont buy anything for the next 6 months as far as dealerships go. Many are hiding massive excess inventory offsite in hopes of keeping the covid markup cheddar flowing. Most will be literally sucking your penis to move anything even at firesale prices once loan pressures kick in.
Fuck these stealerships to hell anyway.
When someone says that inflation is not caused by greed I just point to the car dealerships. It is very obvious in this case. A little bit more nuanced in other industries, but very obvious in the car markup case.
MODS BANNED ME FOR RACISM FOR SAYING IT LOOKED CHINKY AHAHAHAHHAHSHHAHAAHSH THE STATE IF THIS FUCKING BOARD
Car prices have been dropping. It's still like 10-15% over what it was prior to covid but it's somewhat reasonable, I guess.
BUSCELS COPING AND SEETHING IN THIS THREAD
Guess what retards. The later you delay getting any scrap of assets. The sooner you are a financial failure. You are NEVER going to own a car by "saving" money up by riding the bus. You are a literal slave tier and you are going to be KEPT on that bus in order to do wage until you die as lower class. Directly where you belong HAHAHAHAHA
just get a motorcycle you retards, less than 5k gets you a flawless bike that will last and most cities have dedicated 24/7 motorcycle parking for reduced or even free rates
Unfortunately where I live that would be significantly less practical
>5 months of winter
>roads are shitty
Why do all Subaru engines sound like they have a knock?
Boxer engine design, similar to a Lycoming.
This allows for placing the engine weight farther down on the center of gravity in the roll axis... thus making it less susceptible to excess roll moments.
>Subaru, Toyota and Honda are literally the only modern vehicles worth buying anymore, new or used.
Most people need a car to live.
There is less and less competition as the brands get absorbed by each other.
It's almost impossible for new manufacturers to compete due to regulations.
The sky is the limit for how high they can take them.
