Personally, I think that's a crock.you’ll lose your ass with an American vehicle
Japanese cars last forever. I read it right here on Glock Talk. HH
buy a Ford.Personally, I think that's a crock.
In 50 yrs of post college owning cars, only one had serious problems and I caused those problems. Current cars are a 2016 Chevy SS (no it's not a Malibu, it's a 4-door with a Corvette engine) and a 2009 Pontiac G8GT, the SSs prececessor. The G8GT has 104K on it and zero issues, runs beautifully. Other than routine maintenance, the only work on it has been new front struts at 96K, strictly a wear issue not a reliability one.
I'm a car guy and I think one of the reasons foreign cars do well is that regular maintenance is stressed more than with domestic brand which are treated like refrigerators, supposed to last a long time w/o care. Don
By all means if you want it get it. Honestly it sounds like you made up your mind and you want confirmation.It’s not a trap. If I want it I’ll buy it. Just like anything else. I just haven’t decided yet if I can deal with a 4cyl. I don’t drive fast or anything so I can probably enjoy the better mileage. I would definitely enjoy a smaller monthly payment.
You got me pegged there. It’s about lower payments and a better interest rate. But a new car with no miles and a better interest rate and lower payments would make my life a little better i think. I don’t want to worry about suspension components on that AWD system.By all means if you want it get it. Honestly it sounds like you made up your mind and you want confirmation.
It's your money. Spend it how you want to. All I can say from the outside looking in is that it isn't going to save you money.
I hear people all the time saying g how they buy something new (car, house) so they could save money. What they did is look at monthly payments and interest rate rather than the total cost of acquisition. Eapecially lately with intererates being so low BUT used car and home prices have increased. New car prices go up every year and depreciate quickly.
If it makes you feel good and you're willing to pay then go for it and enjoy.:cheers:
I had a 2015 4.0 Outback and upgraded to a 2017 flat 6 Outback in 2017. I would put the pedal down and there would be no power. I’m not an aggressive driver;however, I need power when I need power. I have read in multiple places that they have changed the CVT timing so that doesn’t happen anymore. My suggestion is that you test drive it aggressively to make sure you have power in the rare times when you need it.So does anyone have a 4 cyl Subaru and can you talk about getting on the highway?
While it's always fun trying to figure out the total system based on year, model, trim and transmission, the 2020 Forester is a 60/40 torque split. The Premium trim should be single x-mode. Base or dual x-mode on other trims. Rough breakdown is electronic clutches for controlling torque split plus tire braking.Aren’t all the Subaru AWD vehicles short of the WRX, limited slip engagement systems, like the Honda now?
