Why Not to Buy a Toyota Corolla

Why Not to Buy a Toyota Corolla


rev up your engines jarred madam says Corolla vs.
Camry well that’s your decision they’re both excellent cars but the camrys cost
more than the Corollas you want to pay more to get a bigger car you get a
little bit better gas mileage with the Corolla but you’re gonna get a lot
better ride in a Camry that is your decision of what you want to spend how
much money you want to put into a vehicle and how long you’re gonna keep
it now what you’re gonna use it for because the Camrys rides so much better
than the Corollas do I mean they just do when I rent cars I’ve always trying to
get a Camry cuz if they ride great especially if I’m taking my 92 year old
mother somewhere I wanted to be comfy so I would rather rent a Camry cuz it’s
gonna ride better they even though it gets a little bit worse gas mines in a
Corolla it isn’t that much different at myself I’d go for a Camry but you pay a
lot less for the car all then they both last a long time
Sarah 107 1294 I need to sell my Nissan Altima 2016 not for watching your
channel my friend I won’t be able to sell it how long should it take to sell it I’m
not asking a lot well if you’re not asking a lot you’ll be able to sell
pretty fast my first thing would be it’s a 2016
drive it to a car max they buy cars see what they offer you for the thing you
never know they might offer you more than you think and they just get rid of
the stupid thing now if they hardly offer you any more
Don it runs okay my advice is you drive it until it falls apart and then just
get rid of it because if you’re not gonna get much money for it you might as
well as Drive the stupid thing you own it by lose a whole bunch of money
sometimes they can last reasonable amount of time I’d never tell somebody
to buy one but if you already have it you’re not gonna get much for it you
might as well as keep it and drive it no there’s Scotty telling you keep a nice
sum which I normally don’t say but if you can’t solve for much money it runs
okay muzzle was just driving under the ground of smelly clown Scotty I keep
hearing on Nissan a chrysler used to be good car company before ever knowing
Fiat bottom as a car company ever improved the brand after purchasing that
you know a lot of times it’s just like a fire sale as far as I’m concerned for a
short period of time Jaguar actually got better when Tata the
Indian company bottom they put a lot of money into them and they started to make
a profit Tata after they bought Jaguar and Land
Rover they to make a profit but then a couple of
years it all started to go downhill now from what I see Jaguar and Land Rover
are 50% owned by Tata and by a Chinese I think it’s cherry the company or who
knows maybe the clouds go up again then because the Chinese I’m wearing the
building quality these days than they used to be but not really one things
merge there’s a problem in one or both companies that’s not generally such a
hot deal Lobo okay there I got a Fiat Punto Grande 2007 the starter motors
been grinding for a month and not won’t turn on and on there’s a strange noise
alright you should have replaced the starter when it’s grinding here’s how
they work you turn the key the starter sense power from the battery it spins
the engine it’s got a gear on the starter that meshes with your flywheel
and spins it around teeth on the flywheel your grinding that’s the
starter and the flywheel grind in each other apart
if you’ve ruined the flywheel now you’re gonna have to pull the transmission off
the vehicle change the expense of flywheel in the starter and away you go
if it just starts to grind you should immediately take the starter off put a
new start around starters are easy and cheap to replace fly wheels can cost you
well over $1000 so try another starter and see what happens I mean it’s a Fiat
so my advice is if you do put a starter and start selling as fast as you can
because they’re piles of junk era 1071 924 Scotty I love you YouTube
channel you’re entertaining I want to purchase an SUV crossover with
some dowels and whistles and have 18 grand won’t be the best reliable bang
for my buck Toyota or Lexus if you want long-term for 18 grand if you want all
the bells and whistles it’s gonna have some mileage on it’s gonna be somewhat
old you could easily find say a Ford Expedition or a big GM but two pieces
junk as they age you’re not gonna be happy with that and more reliability of
a Toyota or Lexus and you’d be happy in a long run let’s say you want a fancy
entertainment system heck you can get a good Android system for a couple hundred
bucks and a guy like me can put it in for a hundred bucks rather than buying
one car that has one in and it’s got all the bells and whistles of eight thousand
dollars in extra add-ons when you don’t want them also you might take less bells
and whistles and an immodest goes my Frank Guerra I gotta know 3.2
caught a 4.7 truck overheated and turned off not doesn’t want to start no power
put a battery charger on nothing the first thing you want to do I got a video
getting an old car running a set for years watch that the first thing you
want to do is get a long extension bar and a socket on the end on your crank
ball well the fan belts are driven put the socket on there try to turn the
engine over you can’t turn the engine over make it spin whole 360 degrees and
not again the engines locked up and it’s toasters junk that when they overheat
and do that that’s often what happens to them they will lock up now you want to
pray that it was something like your alternator went bad and then you ran out
of power so then the car won’t start try a battery from somebody else’s car put
it in your car and see if it’ll start pray it does because if a dozen odds are
you overheated the engine and locked it up never drive a car that’s overheating
until it stops Ronnie because you can destroy now there’s a kid back in the
day everything was cast-iron the engines the blocks the heads and they could
overheat and sometimes cool down and start up a run down the road but the new
ones are all aluminum and when they overheat they generally warping you can
say goodbye to your crash they’ll never drive when it starts overheat and turn
the thing off tow it somewhere don’t try to drive it there’s one they might get
rid of the car mirrors the United States is beginning testing of cars that don’t
have mirrors anymore but just cameras there’s already some vehicles in Japan
Toyota and likes yourself that have the cameras on them instead of side view and
rear view mirrors they don’t have any United States yet they’re still have
traditional mirrors on the lookout of retrain people so that they got
something to look at and if it’s more direct I kind of agree with that because
when you look at the side view mirrors you’re turning your head right well if
there was an upfront display where you had both the rear view say in the middle
and each side camera next to it that you could just glance you could see if
anybody was coming and your brain could realize that a lot faster than having to
turn your head and look at the mirrors because let’s face it you turn your head
and look at the mirror and I’m looking straight ahead if you’re looking
straight ahead and there’s a camera system hey that’s not a bad idea I think
that’s a pretty good idea one of the few really modern tech things that I think
makes if you don’t have to turn your head to
look at a mirror makes a lot more sense of having to turn your app Kimberly
Ibarra says what is the best economical used car to trade in for I’d say Toyota
Corolla da canonical they’d run round Ron Ron Ron not any problems number two
would be the Honda Civic the Toyotas are a little bit better the civics are also
excellent vehicles I don’t want to lose though you’d probably be really happy
with their well made to get good gas mods they can run forever and the
insurance on them isn’t all that expensive because they’re not a big fast
car where you’re gonna pay a ton for insurance because it goes too fast it’s
big and can do a lot of damage it’s a smaller car so you’re gonna save money
on both ends they’re thinking about getting a Ford Ranger 97 trying to
convince my dad he says no cuz it’s too old but the one I’m looking at is in
good condition those Rangers couldn’t get good trucks if they’re not too high
mileage and you have a mechanic like me check it out there’s nothing wrong with
getting an old one like that the parts available you can fix them parts aren’t
all that expensive for those either because they’re Fords
there’s absolutely nothing wrong with it if you get one that’s still got a lot of
life left there now that said I would tell you to probably stay away from the
four-wheel-drive ones because that old the four-wheel-drive stuff can get
really expensive to work on it can break stick to just the plain rear-wheel drive
ones you need to have a better result getting trucks are gonna last as long
but since their Fords there’s so many parts available and they’re relatively
decent built trucks there’s nothing wrong with that
Omar means assess Scotty why does my 2017 Dodge Charger say service
electronic throttle body and it idles roughly well because computer knows
there’s a problem and so it says service the throttle body so my advice is watch
my video make your car run better with a little spray cleaner bite a spray
cleaner for like 12 13 dollars from the two bottles and do it yourself
clean it up a lot of times carbon builds up on those things the cleaning can fix
them it’s a pretty simple thing to do you can do it yourself and pray that
that fixes it and that it’s not an electronic failure because dodges are
notorious for having electronic problems as they age they just have weak
electronic systems they always have it doesn’t matter that fiat took over fiat
is the company that has a history of electronic problems so it’s like bad
plus bad isn’t good the viral opes Scottie I live in Europe here we drive a
lot of Opel what do you think of them well strangely enough the first guy out
rolled was an Opel I got it for 550 bucks and I drove the crap on it but was
very hard to get parts because Buick imported them in the United States and
so when the carburetor kept acting off I actually made gaskets for it out of an
old Kellogg’s cereal box thought it out drilled holes and it worked her to be
fine so now opals are one of the early car manufactures in Germany they make
some good cars there’s no arguing that and you sell them I was in England there
were a lot of them there and people liked them so you know there’s
absolutely nothing wrong with an Opel I know in Europe for ages they sold luxury
cars – with big v8 engines in them we only got the ones haven’t a little bitty
four-cylinder engines back in the day and a lot of kids bottom cuz they didn’t
cost much Daniel Green says do you know what could cause the PCM to overeat and
a 99 Dodge Durango well here’s some problem with computers the computer has
one tiny fuse for the whole computer treater itself if you look at it you see
a bunch of connectors with tons of wires that go into it now those wires that
fuses on it soft you have a short and wiring or any of the sensors that feed
it can make the PCM overheat and you got to figure out which one it can be a cow
figuring out which one is starting to short out and of course it could just be
knowing dodges the computer itself squaring out and the internal circuit
boards are starting to warp and short out and there’s overheating because it’s
shorting out inside like a bad toaster and smoke starts coming out of you know
it’s time for a new one but like I said it could be any wire or any sensor I’ve
had people think oh well to overheat I’ll just put a new computer they put it
in and it overheats to because it’s something else that causes it that is a
no-fun thing to trace down all of those wires but you’re gonna have to start
tracing those you want to figure out what it is
Scottie have you ever owned a Crown Vic okay crown vics are known as grandpa
cars but the crown vics are great grandpa cars you know you can put a lot
of people in them they get decent gas mileage for their size on highway a lot
of coasters with them and they like you know but they are a grandpa car and I
don’t want to be sick of myself as a grandpa that’s state of mind
yellow on the popo says Scotty my car makes a grinding noise when I turn the
wheel and accelerate the track control light comes on
okay generally when you get that so we Barin going out makes a grinding noise
that’s the wheel bearing grinding and the traction control I can come on
because there’s ABS sensor and four wheel bearings going it’s gonna start
wobbling around and then the ABS sensors gonna give ridiculous data to the
computer which is going to turn the light on so check the wheel bearings
first that’s the most common thing I got a video how to replace wheel bearings on
your car watch and it shows how you can check them out and you can decide you
really want to do a job that bigger you’re gonna pay a mechanic to do it
Stan in Indiana a state trooper was driving on a roll and lo and behold the
person in front of them threw a dirty diaper out of the window of their car
that smacked right under the troopers windshield a dirty diaper legolas
decided chopper pulled them over and gave him a ticket for littering he was
probably laughing his rear end off it didn’t hurt anybody didn’t break the
windshield aside or anything think twice before you throw dirty
diapers out the window on the highway it’s dangerous anyway I mean a third
month some got a motorcycle and you throw that diaper in a book could kill
them out if you’re thinking about getting electric car
maybe you should sink seriously a buying an off lease electric car it turns out
that they have horrendously low resale values and let the original lessee pay
off the big bunk and then you can get a deal for example a 2016 Nissan Leaf
which originally listed almost $30,000 goes for about $10,000 in a New York
City car dealership goes for one third of what it was originally and I know you
can get deals like this because I have a customer who recently got a Model S the
top-of-the-line Tesla he bought it with 15,000 miles on it
the original owner paid a hundred and twenty something thousand dollars for it
he bought it with 15,000 miles on for $45,000 no I still wouldn’t pay forty
five grand for it but he paid what just about one-third what the originally I
did it’s only got 15,000 miles on it so if you really are thinking electric car
let some fool take the middle the first one and then get a little mileage one
later on cuz let’s face it a lot of these electric cars
dick low mileage because you can’t drive from
cross country they don’t have the range so if you don’t want electric truck not
a bad idea buy used ones even better than used
gasoline car even they don’t drop values that fast there’s a company out there
they’re made a Lexus completely out of cardboard that you can drive around a
company called laser cut works made to think diagrams from Lexus to make sure
all the parts are the right size and they built a Lexus out of cardboard and
put an electric motor inside so it could be driven around of course this is just
a one-off thing to highlight what these guys can do a laser cut work so I guess
it’s kind of an advertising thing for but out there somewhere on the planet
there’s a Lexus may not completely on a cardboard is an electric motor that you
can drive around I would guess that you don’t want to take that baby out in the
rain or it’s going to be a soggy wet car portlets it’s not something people are
gonna want to mass-produce that’s for sure progressive three to three Scotty
I’m considering buying it used out for romão GT in Europe what should I look
for I have no experience with cars look for a psychiatrist you might be going
insane those things are endless money pits
and the only thing worse than an alpha I’m here GT is a used a GT guys buy they
beat the heck out of NATO all up over time and you said you would have more
experience with cars at all do not buy that car it’s something more illogical
don’t buy that sports car it’s probably gonna fall apart in front of your very
eyes if it hasn’t already now if you absolutely positively must don’t go to a
dealer of course the dealer’s gonna tell you to buy it cuz they’re gonna make a
fortune fix it if you don’t want to get one of those find an independent
mechanic like me who’s giving you an honest advice I give honest advice to
customers I mean I have people I hate Porsches I people bring me them I check
them out before they buy mine I tell them the truth I say look well if you
don’t mind an endless money pit here’s the shape this one is in now and
I’ll hook up my $5,000 can’t all go through it there’s almost always a bunch
of little things wrong and I said well if you don’t mind all this little crap
and you just want a toy for the weekend sometimes I said go ahead and buy it if
you can get it cheap enough but with that outfit I’d say never ever buy one
of those things especially and used one
very Kindle the turn signals won’t work on my 2003 l200 Saturn the bulbs are
okay to check the Bob’s all four of an al work the first thing to do is a fuse
for all the whole turn signal system let’s say the fuse is blown your place
it and it doesn’t blow sometimes they’ll wear out that thing is what 17 years old
but if it’s not the fuse that’s okay generally it’s the flasher unit you go
to a place like autozone and say I need to turn signal flasher for my Saturn not
only gonna show you a picture where it is they can sell you and it can help
show you how to put it in it’s a pretty simple job if it’s not back then often
it’s the turn signal assembly off of your steering wheel would you click the
arm up and down those break down that take the steering column apart it’s a
real pain in the butt to do you’d probably want to pay a mechanic to do
that pray it’s not that cuz that’s the most expensive thing that can go wrong
often is just a turn signal flasher you’d get it in the auto parts store
smithereens Scotty Angela lair for news Anna can you recommend a scanner for a
92 Mitsubishi GTO I bought a box obd2 but it won’t work that’s obd one that’s
on yours and our places that say yeah you can get an adapter to put on an old
biddy you point out anyone those things hardly ever work i’ve got like six of
them behind me hanging on a wall and none of them would ever work when i
tried using the obd2 on obd one if you really want to get a scan tool for that
you got to realize you’re not gonna get that much data cuz it’s so old but in my
case I don’t wall back there I got an old snap-on we called them brick
scanners cuz they look like a brick go to ebay you could probably get a used
one somewhere on eBay cheap enough and just make sure that you can get one that
has the Mitsubishi adapter that fits on the Mitsubishi and has the Mitsubishi
data port that goes in the way they work is each one of those things have two
Clips ones for foreign ones for American and then the other side is for the model
so you’d need the Asian cartridge that clips on one side the Mitsubishi chip
that goes on the other and if people can sell you one of those go ahead you won’t
get all that much data but that’s about as much as you’re gonna find if you want
to try to find a machine that does that because doing all Beauty two to one
convergence my experience of sync don’t work at all JC 83 Scotty I got a 2016
Honda Civic with 90,000 miles the AC bond hot and the compressor and the fans
are not turning on any suggestions anytime you’re a CEO
work you start with the most logical thing first you if you don’t have them
paying mechanic put a set of AC gauges on the low side in the high side see
what the pressures are you see the pressures low
you know it’s low on refrigerant so you attempt to add some refrigerant to see
if it’ll turn on you’re saying the compressor isn’t turning on you start
adding a little refrigerant starts to turn on thinking Oh was law and
refrigerant there comes the hard part cuz if it’s longer frigid you have no
idea how low it is the only way to correctly fill it just like I do I’m a
mechanic I’ve got it the equipment I recycle the old stuff suck off to
nothing and then I put in a factory load by weight I go by kilograms like it’s a
point seven six old kilograms that’s what I put back into the system and then
you know what’s full now let’s say you put it on and it won’t take any at all
well then odds are you got some kind of a problem in the compressor or some
other serious problem that you’re really better off having a mechanical get
because diagnose an AC stuff can get really complicated but a lot of times
it’s just low and refrigerant have that checked first exams of seven Scotty do I
need to get in alignment after I get new tires in the 2010 Honda Accord to make
sure they don’t wear unevenly it doesn’t pull or shake at high speeds thanks
you’re kind of taking a gamble so you know and the line it cuz they’re always
gonna try to sell you stuff when they do that and whether it’s in alignment or
not they’ll probably say it’s a hot an alignment we’re gonna charge you for an
alignment what you can normally tell though if you don’t want to gamble is
look at your all tires and if there weren’t perfectly evenly even though
they’re worn out don’t waste your money but if the scalp and one side or worn
the Miller side then yeah you want to get it aligned but if your alters even
though they’re worn out we’re pretty evenly worn and you don’t need alignment
junuh suit Chevrolet 2000 K 1500 times I have the fuel system all apart were to
be good idea to replace the o-rings as well yes
you really have to buzz all rings are really made for one-time use so buy some
aftermarket crap buy OEM or rings I tried to save customers money by doing
that kind of work and either trying to use the o-rings over and lubricate them
a gasoline before I pop them in or by going to a discount auto parts store and
buying the o-rings well a lot of times both of those methods failed and
actually the worst one was the aftermarket ones they often leak
sometimes you get lucky and reuse the old ones but the aftermarket
Ovenden so get the original equipment Oh rings when you put it back together
don’t attempt to put it together without new o-rings that’s where all the
pressures being held from the engine make sure you put new o-rings when you
do that job Swift guys Scottie watch your videos now you know I’d like to
know what do you think of a 2017 Suzuki Swift automatic transmission that was
reconditioned in Japan all right if you don’t live in the United States and it
was reconditioned in Japan by quality company go right ahead
in the United States those things were massive failures they haven’t sold them
for a long time Suzuki pull out of the American market I know people live
better the Virgin Islands lots of people drive Suzuki around other parts of the
world can get parts or mechanics know how to work on that could be a good idea
but if you live in the United States no I would not buy that vehicle that would
be a foolish move the parts are expensive hardly anybody knows how to
work on and a company doesn’t even exist there other than a motorcycle sir which
is kind of weird because they make great motorcycles but they made such crappy
cars so if you never want to miss another one of my new car repair videos
remembering to ring that Bell

  2. Hi, I have a 05 corolla with 350K. It does'nt have side air bags. Should I give it to my son, for now, or should I buy him like a 2013-14 with about 90k. I thought it would be good for him to practice on, but wanted to get some thoughts on it. The 05 needs some 500 put into it. Thank you. I'm concerned about the safety, because we have 50mph roads in town.

  3. Kia has cameras in both side view mirrors that display in the gauge cluster. Honda did i too but only with the passenger mirror. Hyundai and Kia have put it in the K900, Palisade, and Telluride. I’ve only heard positive things

  4. Scotty may know his stuff mechanically, but don't take safety advice from him. Turning your head in the car very briefly is not a bad thing. We were always taught in Drivers Ed to frequently check out mirrors, but never to rely on them. You always turn your head and double check any potential blind spot before completing a turn or maneuver. I have saved myself from a wreck on more than one occasion by not blindly trusting my mirrors, even though they were set correctly. I believe that these cameras will be a great addition, but if people just assume they show everything and rely on them solely, there will be more accidents not less.

  5. The only new Toyota’s that are good are the suvs. Third and fourth gen Camry’s are way better than these newer ones imo

  6. Saw a new red alpha Romeo sedan today. If I wasn't a poor bastard I would be a rich sucker for that car. Looked like it rode great. Stanced perfectly. I bet the interior is nice too.

  7. Hey Scotty. I'm thinking of buying Suzuki Kizashi 2010 in Australia with auto CVT transmission with 137k kilometres. any thoughts on that? Appreciated

  8. I see a couple of problems when replacing mirrors with cameras, Scotty. One is complexity: mirrors do not fail, but cameras do. Another is image fidelity: digital images cannot be rendered in real time, that's why you see some garbled images when there are many things moving too fast. Another thing to keep in mind is that by not having to move your head, you grow tired faster as the muscles on your neck do no change posture as often as needed. And lastly, displays have a different point of view, which means you need to focus your eyes on the surface of the display rather than on what the display is showing.

    I recently drove a truck with a display instead of a back mirror, and the stupid thing was too slow and too low definition and required refocusing my eyes every time I needed to check the rear view mirror. Now, with mirrors, you do not have to adjust your gaze because you are not really looking at the mirror, but what its been reflected on it.

  9. I defiantly appreciate the longer videos, it goes well with my lunch break here at work. Thanks for the upload Scotty Kilmer!!

  10. A Toyota is to me personally the least exciting car out there. And seems their reliability is not such a hot topic anymore.

  11. Scotty I replaced my spark plugs in Camry 2014 130000 miles. The mpg went down, the gap was good I checked it. What you think went wrong??

  12. Euro (and African) cars often have stiffer suspension, because our drivers like that more. Corolla also used to be manufactured locally (South Africa) and the Camry was imported, so the Corolla is preferred for a less "floppy" ride. Not that either vehicle has an exciting setup. Euro Auris has multilink in the back… we don't get that 🙂

  13. Scotty. I have 2007 Jeep Commander 5.7 Hemi. It’s start loosing antifreeze ( don’t see any leaks). On the oil stick not showing any milky staff yet. My question is : it’s a head gasket or something else? Pls lmk from Your experience. Thank You.

  14. Scotty I watch and enjoy your videos. And agree with most of what you say. However my 2017 Alfa Romeo Giulia Sport has 54,000 nearly trouble free miles

  15. Scotty: Here's Why the Toyota Corolla is the Best Selling Car of All Time

    Me: buys a Toyota Corolla
    Scotty: Why Not to Buy a Toyota Corolla

    Me: -.-

  16. Crown Victoria is everyone's car, you said crown Victoria is a Grandpa car please put that aside because company ford make crown Victoria for everyone to drive and please put that aside

  17. U get better gas mileage with a Camry now. So I'd go for the camry since it's a little bigger

  18. I don't agree with cameras replacing mirrors. The roads are very dirty way up north. Backup camera up here get very dirty very quickly and you can't even use them. Most people don't clean them off as it is unless they go to the car wash. They really won't stop going down the road to clean cameras off. Ice and snow also cover them. It's much harder to cover your mirrors with nice and snow. Not to mention all the election trash to fix. Mirrors are easy to replace when broken. We shall see I guess.

  19. You talk too much and it ruins your videos give too many opinions and you got to be kidding me. These are actually good cars

  20. Scotty: my 30 minute live car talks are too long, nobody rewatches them so I cut them up into smaller, shorter videos and get more views
    Also Scotty: drops 21 minute video 🤣

  21. Go with the Camry! Driving them for work, 1000+ miles a week, very smooth and have been getting 36-38 avg mpg.
    The downside though, is that their seats aren’t exactly the most comfortable, driving for several hours at a time.. but then again, what seat is?

  22. My backup camera is covered with snow or salt and useless all winter long. I think mirrors are much safer in those conditions

  23. Suburbans and Tahoe’s are known to run close to 300,000 mikes , look it up Scottie there’s a fellow YouTuber that has lots of videos you can see , nothing but the truth Scotty older model Chevys

  24. One time many moons ago, somebody ahead of me on an interstate threw out a big bag of McDonald's trash, and it all smacked right at my windshield, and left sodapop and ketchup all over it. Needless to say, I floored it, got ahead of them, then stomped on my brakes at them. I about made them run off the road LOL! I hoped they learned their lesson.

  25. If you own a Fiat, Chrysler, Jeep Renegade/Compass, Jaguar, Mini, Smart car, Range and Rover please don’t waste Scotty’s time by asking a question about your car, just drive the damn thing to the ground because it’s a piece of junk worth nothing because you already made a bad decision by buying it.

  26. you also have the other video saying, " why not to buy a new Toyota Camry, if your saying not any of the both, your next video would say, " why should you take a greyhoud bus" that would be on the Monday video, and he would give a way a bus ticket.

  27. Why you always mentioned Corolla,i think Civic is better than Corolla,Few years ago Civic was the Car of the Year.When was the Corolla got that award?

  28. When that person asked the question which started with,.. "I have a Kia!…" Scotty should of skipped it LMAO

  29. Camera system to replace rear-view mirrors? More unnecessary, expensive,
    high-tech, over-engineering to further drive up the cost of over-priced new
    cars. Also more to go wrong and a more expensive fix. I can live without it!

  30. I've been trying to get a used Corolla but a lot of them have had recalls in its history of some sort so I'm nervous to get one. But I need anither used car already. Should I get one that has absolutely no past recalls on it or am I worrying for nothing? Please help.

  31. Dear Scotty Kilmer,
    Thou I will admit that you look kinda goofy to me, I learned a long time ago not to judge a person by their looks or behavior when it comes to estimating a specific skill they have.
    Thus, my question:

    I am a guy who does NOT like driving. I have driven under ten times in over 10 years, however I would like to own a car for moment of need, mostly needing to take my mother to the airport or similar. (I am not afraid of driving, I just prefer to listen to music while using public transportation and relaxing).

    I was looking to buy a Porsche Boxster (my teenage dream car, from the video game need for speed porsche 2000), but after a few months of intermittent research I decided against it.
    Could you give your opinion on the following cars or at least which one would you consider a "not dumb" choice:

    2008 Mitsubishi Lancer IX
    2005 BMW Z4.
    Jaguar Xj X308/X350. (early 2000's).
    2001-2007 Mercedez Benz SLK
    2003-2006 Mazda MX-5
    Nissan 350Z
    1990-1997 Toyota Celica (I know you personaly Like this model but I would like to know if it is the only you would recommend from this group).

    Cheers!
    (Oh and I want to mod the car a bit for fun).

  32. I've never seen a camry in my life

    Also the corolla is a very good car in the EU they don't sell camrys also nobody buys them because it has a too big engine

  33. 😂😂😂Scotty yeah..let some fools buy them new cars I prefer buy used for me personally though Toyota or Lexus 😄😄

  34. Scotty, I had my PVC valve cleaned and my vehicle no longer is burning the oil out of my car! Then 3 weeks later, I started to hear a soft sound like a jet taking off. It's still there, but the car runs fine and no engine light comes on. I took it back and they replaced the motor mount on it, but it's still making the noise and the engine is shaking (I can feel it when am stopped at a light or stop sign) I don't know what to make of this? I had the Intake Manifold checked and the Intake Valve, but they couldn't find what was making the jet engine sound. They told me to come back when it gets worse! What the heck kind of answer is that? The mechanic's are older guys who have been working in this shop for over 20 years, so they should have been able to find out what the issue is. Next time I get another vehicle (which will be a used one) it will be a Honda. Any used Toyota's from 03, 05, 07, thru 2015, are duds. Particularly the Camry's and Corolla's.

  35. Hey Scotty, we all hear and use the terms "drive it 'till the wheels fall off, or drive it into the ground", but, what is YOUR last straw for a vehicle? In other words, what breakage is not worth the repair cost nor worth keeping the car any longer? Thanks!
