HEY DUDE .... YOU obviously never drove a Prius ... if you drive them right, they can pass anything on the road and out handle a lot of sports cars , so DON'T call them slow. I got a ticket in NY state doing 82 mph on cruise. My 2008 had 245k on it when I bought it, sold it with 260k. And $2500 for a battery ? ARE YOU KIDDING ? Another statement that tells me you don't know anything about Prius. Any smart mechanic can find the bad cells in YOUR battery and replace them for $150 each used. IT'S NOT ''the battery'' that goes bad but single cells that can be replaced. COST $500+

Yeah, i own a 2001 Mitsubishi Eclipse Spyder, 230,000 miles, 2nd owner, original engine & tranny. No leaks, smoking, or rattling! Fun to drive too, being a drop-top.. Only paid around 2g for the thing with 188,000 miles. W/pump, t-belt and motor mounts replaced. Only weak spot so far is a/c compressor. Replaced 1 a year for the last 3 years. Other than that, starts EVERY time, and would not hesitate to drive 300-400 miles any time!

I just bought a 97 Camry with low miles 170k for $500 other than clear coat painting like all of them on the fender and the whole Hood that now has a hole and some other visual not appealing things and dirty interior the car for its age.. 20 years old that runs better than my previous 2008 Ford focus with 49000 miles.. I never liked Camrys especially this green color because as you say vanilla / Grandma car but actually it's pretty quick, very comfortable and those cars have struts on the rear. nowadays they have shocks crapy handling.. I rented a 2014 and my 97 floats like a boat on water and yes it's all original suspension and I am in New York City of massive pain holes..that's how I bought my Ford focus and destroyed it literally less than a year, first rear suspension broke I put new shocks then the front struts broke I let It go as is then the rack and pinion broke then the power steering pump broke and then the transmission blew up the only at 68000 miles wonderful experience but I loved the car extremely.. and this camry is still going

Why are you surprised about the Lincoln Town car..in New York was used for limo and car service and they went up to 600k miles np..in fact when my father lost his business he bought in 93 Lincoln Town car (2nd ..he had one before for the limo then started a business and lost his business) from my uncle who had many for car service business. The car came from a limo company which had three accidents with 130k he bought it for his car service which had another 4 accident and then It was just parked and my dad bought it for $200. Car had 700000 miles and my dad used it for a year+ as temp car when it died after very very hard abuse he did after all of the abuse it had in its life on top of that..died at 809k and not the engine nothing else just transmission..in fact we had to weld parts to the car like bumper fenders cuz they were just pulling off on the highway and on the bridge but it was still going! That's a Lincoln Town car

The biggest destroyers of good cars are owners who never change the oil or allow the car to overheat. My 1993 BMW 325is has 300,000 miles and still goes 125+ MPH. When it idles sometimes you can't even hear it from a distance.

7 Driving Habits That Ruin Top 5 Cars That Last 300,000 7 months ago   08:56

How to drive a car easily and safely? How to brake smoothly? Here are a few simple driving hacks and secrets you should know to drive your car like a pro.
Have you already been driving for many years or are you just starting to drive? This activity can be both exciting and exhausting. Of course, firstly it depends on road conditions. However, there is one more important thing to be considered while driving – the behavior of your car. The longer you own a car; the more driving habits you acquire. Unfortunately, not all of those habits are good ones. Moreover, the more experienced you become, the harder it is to break them. And very often those habits can affect the condition of your car. We decided to compile examples of unwise driving behavior.

TIMESTAMPS
Resting your hand on the gear stick 1:09
Refueling only when the tank is almost empty 2:13
Frequent braking 3:04
Ignoring suspicious sounds 4:26
Neglecting to use the hand brake 5:50
Running a cold engine at high revs 6:34
Keeping your foot on the brake while driving downhill 7:17

SUMMARY
- Whether you own an automatic or a manual car, a transmission that is not working correctly can cause serious problems both under the hood and out on the road. Moreover, transmissions are very complex, they have many moving parts, ignoring this bad habit can easily bring you to huge expenses for a transmission repair.
- The dirt gets into the filters and the pump causing damage. The purpose of the latter is to get fuel from the fuel tank and deliver it according to the demand of the engine. During winter months, be sure to always leave the tank at least half-filled with fuel to avoid the formation of large amounts of condensate.
- To avoid unpleasant accidents, remember to promptly change the brake hoses and keep your eye on the brake fluid level. Keep in mind that braking is another skill to be mastered; it takes a certain skill level to do it correctly.
- Please use the following steps to safely move your vehicle away from the highway and to avoid the possible danger.
Firstly, pull over to a safe spot. Don’t hesitate to ask for any possible assistance because the process might not be that easy as it seems. And remember to switch on the hazard lights. If the car has completely broken down and you cannot start it, just push it to a safe place After, try to diagnose the issue.
- To successfully park on an incline, hold the foot brake and shift into "park." Then pull the hand brake, and only then slowly release the brake. It doesn’t really matter if your car has a manual or an automatic transmission, car manufacturers recommend the use of the parking brake to immobilize any parked vehicle.
- Most modern engines don’t need warming up. However, it is worth remembering that until the gauge indicates operating temperature one shouldn’t run the engine at more than 2,000 revs. In freezing conditions, it is advisable to keep the engine running for 1-2 minutes before pulling away.
- The proper thing to do is to shift to a lower gear and initiate engine braking, which helps to reduce the use of normal brakes. It works by reducing the speed of the engine, which means that the speed of the vehicle reduces too. The aim is to prevent the vehicle get a too fast speed, especially while going downhill.
