The Least Reliable Car to Buy for a Daily Driver


rev up your engines, scotty I’m planning to
buy a 1993 Toyota Crown Royal saloon is it good for
daily driving, those were great vehicles back in 1993
now you’re talking about 27 year old car I don’t advise anybody to buy a 27 year
old car for daily driving too many things can go wrong, it’s a Toyota yes
but it’s old the rubber stuff can start to rot and something as dumb as the
rear main seal on the engine for the engine oil it’s gonna be worn and if
it goes off and it starts pouring oil on the ground you’re gonna have to pull the
transmission off to change a ten-dollar part that’s gonna cost you probably a
thousand bucks to take the transmission apart and get to the engine and put it
in and then put it all back together again, you have to understand you got
cars that are 27 years old they’re not made for
daily driving anymore, even guys I know that have classic cars they don’t drive
them every day even if they’ve been fully done over and they got a hundred
grand in them you know, if they drive every day they’re gonna wear stuff out
just cause it’s so old, Robert says I just watched your video and why not to
buy an Optima battery and I don’t care what they say about you Scotty you know
what you’re talking about, the reliability of these Optima batteries is
completely gone to poop, keep these videos coming more people need your
experience, well that’s what I’m here for years and years ago I told people buy
these Optima batteries they were excellent batters but their quality is
one they move their factory to Mexico fired all the Americans the most evil
thing of all, they go down to Mexico so they can make them cheaper, but now the
prices today are more than twice what they were 15 years ago,
so they doubled their prices and the quality has gone downhill and when I see
stuff like that I love telling people about it because I used to be so mad I
saw all these problems things that were made wrong and I tell the custumer
that’s one person I can tell millions of people, so when you have problems make
sure you tell me about it and I can talk about them too, so maybe you
won’t buy it or eventually these companies will have to build them better
gonna go out of business cuz ultimately if you don’t buy
corporation’s products, they will go out of business they’re just there to sell
things and if they don’t sell them they go out of business, Cuban school says
scotty’s wrong here when he says Dodge quality went down since Fiat stepped in
I think it’s the other way around, well I don’t know about that because I don’t
know that Fiat quality could go any lower and yeah the Dodge quality wasn’t
that great either I mean that’s sort of like which came first the chicken in the
egg you know you got a point there cuz Chrysler quality has always been and
Fiat qualities is low, so it’s like a downhill merger of two bad companies
see how low can they go a lower and lower, Fiat Chrysler boy they’re making
the bar go lower and lower I’ll say that, hey scotty do those ultrasonic devices that
run off the battery work, yeah I even made a
video on that, they do actually work but you gotta buy the good ones that are two
frequencies because originally they were one frequency it’s ultra sonic sound
that we can’t hear but the rodents can, I even kind of wondered do these
things really do anything, I got a marksman which is an ultrasonic
listening kit for listening to wheel bearings and stuff, and it picks up an
ultrasonic sound so when I got that I put it on, I put it next to one of these
things and yeah it would go and you’d hear the sound so the rats hear that
and don’t like it, but from what I’ve researched the rats get used to it
and they just ignore it right, but the good ones are dual signals make all
kinds of noise and they can’t get used to the vacillating pitch and it drives
them nuts, I actually have them inside the walls of our house this old
beam house we used to get rats in the winter and we hear them behind our bed
post inside the wall scratching away when they had babies you hear a little
squeaking and everything, we’d pound on the walls in the middle night they’d shut up
for a while, but then they’d come back, I stuck the noise ones, the ones that go weee
in and put the plaster over and painted it, guess what they all ran away and never
came back, we don’t get that noise anymore it really does work so you can
get one of those, gus says hey Scotty are you the back to future professor cuz
you’re freaking knowledgable love your videos, well no I am NOT but I actually
was once a professor at the University of Illinois, I was writing my PhD there
my wife always laughs and said gee I thought you were gonna be a doctor now
you just a mechanic fixing things well it’s kind of funny people always said uh
grease monkey what does a stupid mechanic know,
my grandfather was a mechanic too, now he wasn’t educated he was a country boy, he
grew up in a country but he was very smart, now he was a very good contract
bridge player the card game and he had no training on that, he just picked it up
so don’t think that mechanics are stupid people, and these days, now a lot of
them are like we don’t want to be known as mechanics we’re
technicians, well I want to be known as a mechanic it’s a cooler name anyways
technician that’s too nerdy, I like the idea mechanic, but universal mechanic
I like that, so if you never want to miss another one of my new car repair videos
remember to ring that Bell
