I'm a bit of a newfag when it comes to cars, but I came onto this board expecting most people to hate crossovers with a burning passion, and I wasn't disappointed. I can certainly understand why. Most of them, especially the modern ones, are ugly as sin, less fuel efficient than sedans, and don't handle as well. They have a little more cargo space than a sedan but not nearly as much as a proper SUV, they have AWD/4WD as an option but generally not enough clearance to make use of it in true off-road situations. Unibody rather than body-on-frame means most don't have the durability to be true offroad vehicles, either. And on top of that, it's the quintessential normalfag body style, which means anons have a duty to hate it out of sheer contrarianism. All that being said, do you think it's possible to make a non-shit crossover, or is the whole class a failure out of the gate? If it is possible, can it be done in the current market, or would it require someone to physically remove all the EPA/NHTSA regulations shitting up the market first?

Personally, I think there's potential, but only if you change the design philosophy. Right now, crossovers are tall sedans LARPing as SUVs, making them a confused mess that doesn't do anything well. Instead, you should approach the design of a crossover as a station wagon for big guys. Focus on the added cargo space for people that need to haul more shit around but aren't construction workers, instead of pretending it's an offroad car. A higher cabin, not to clear debris and terrain, but for tall fuckers that can't sit comfortably in sedans. Maybe offer AWD or 4WD as an option, but not for anything offroad, just for people in rural and snowy areas that could benefit from the extra traction in the winter.

I think picrelated, the 3rd generation RAV4, is a decent example of a crossover done "right." It has good gas mileage for what it is, 22 city/28 highway compared to the same year Camry's 22/32. 73 cubic feet of cargo space standard, which is about as much as other crossovers have with the rear seats folded down. It's 66 inches tall, not obnoxious but enough to give taller people a bit more headroom. And yes, I know you can just bring the seat downward on sedans and the like, but there are comfort concerns on longer drives. If my knees are ever higher than my hips while sPost too long.

Depends on the wagon, in terms of cubic feet modern wagons are neatly identical to crossovers in terms of cargo capacity. Some have slightly less, some have slightly more.

fe25c5  No.18374


Well we're not talking about the same kind of crossovers: a Nissan Juke or a Renault Captur are clearly inferior to wagons.

On the other hand, a Rogue/Qashqai could be roomy enough.

Anyhow, the size of the biggest wagon (E-class) is way bigger than any crossover. If you want bigger and still be above the street, you'll need to buy a SUV.

37c1f8  No.18376


The E-class has 35 cubic feet of cargo space with all the seats up. The RAV4, a typical crossover, has 37. However, unlike most crossovers it does sport a third row of seats, so if you're comparing it to two-row vehicles you could say it has a lot more space with the third row down. So I'll amend my statement, since then I was searching I saw looking at two-row wagons: two row wagons and two row crossovers are basically the same class of car, except one might be slightly taller and the other might be slightly longer. They have near-identical mileage and near-identical cargo capacity. They both might have AWD/4WD but neither is suited for off-road. Both are family haulers. Both are jacks of all trades. The difference is primarily marketing, Americans decided they didn't like wagons, so carmakers made wagons a little taller and told Americans they were crossovers.

New season, new thread. First episode goes up on the 18th but what I found more interesting was that they've made a video game that will release a few days before. It sounds awful, and for $15 they don't seem to be very confident in it themselves. I'm considering buying it just out of morbid curiosity.

Oof, fuck no. There's a fat man in the place of James May, and the segments are mostly informative. Even the "entertaining" segments are very subdued compared to later on.

If you want to start early on, I'd recommend Season 4. It's the first season with a cheap car challenge, and the first season with a race between a car and public transport.

If you want an episode to start with, there's always the Vietnam Special. It's considered the best episode and it doesn't even feature a single car.

I work in Detroit. I currently drive a 20 year old Buick to work. I love this car, but Detroit roads have potholes big enough to hide a body in and it's clearly taking a toll. I know that one day I'm going to hit a pothole in the middle of the night and get stranded in the ghetto.

So I'm really just looking for a vehicle that is sturdy enough to handle the post-apocalyptic roads of Detroit, while also not being nice enough to get carjacked at a red light. My budget is 10-12 grand.

One of the first things I'd check for is the color of the smoke that came out the exhaust; if it's even slightly blue/lingering, it means the engine is burning oil as well as fuel. And if that's the case, I'm walking.

Subframe, check for cracks and shitty repairs.

Underneath both rocker panels for rust, especially if you're in a cold area and/or live near the sea.

Hello /o/. I'm a 20 year old southerner boy who's looking for his first car to buy.

I had a 200k+ Taurus hand-me-down, but too much has gone wrong with it for it to be any useful to repair anymore. All of my motor supports are bad, my catalytic converter is dead, 3 tires are flat and I need to replace the battery, plus it's been hit by deer I think four times.

I recently came into a lump sum of exactly $5,000 (weird how it's exactly the amount for the guide.) I had some noob questions and I hope I won't get bullied for this, but…

I was thinking that I should buy an old 6th gen Civic because it could be neat for use with my family, it could fit all four of us, plus I could go full autist on it someday and smack some shitty turbocharger on it, and change the transmission and give myself an interesting education about how it's done in the meantime.

But then I was reminded that if times are rough for me, perhaps I should look to the future instead of the present. Sure, driving a Civic would be fun, but perhaps I need a minivan or a van. I was thinking of using a car every day for when I go to work, but I have plans to go to a school perhaps. I have a few job offers in front of me, and I could lend the car to my mother for her to use in the suburbs if I am in the city and only using my feet to get to class. And, of course, the final solution is to 14/88 and have many, many children. I was wondering if it would be financially viable to buy a van and keep fixing it until I have children and use it for transporting them.

Basically, my question is, would it be useful to buy a van first if possible, or is the price range of $5000 for most vans not useful enough for keeping it the entire time that I am raising a family of my own? Perhaps due to how vans over 100k or so have issues? (I don't know if they do or not, I am from a place of ignorance.)

And if I do buy a van, which would be the most useful for containing children or my aging family? I was really thinking that the E Series or some such would be what I would look for due to the passenger numbers and size.

It's on it's way my dude.

Too bad the technology itself is still garbage. They claim 220-470 km range, depending on temperature and if it's city or highway, but we all know that's a scam, like pretty much everything about EVs right now. God save us once EU bans sale of new petrol cars, I imagine the price of old never-rusting 205 1.9 diesels skyrockets.

That's a completely fucking new car. It should be called the 209, and the only reason I can imagine it isn't, is because of someone at Peugeot deciding a rebadged Talbot did not deserve the name of "306", so they called it the 309 instead.

Also there's no mistaking it, it's fucking huge compared to its predecessors. The 205 and 206 were small cars. The 207 moved up slightly to the same size as the likes of the Civic and Astra Hatch, but it was still maneuverable enough to be a successor. This on the other hand looks like a lowered crossover. No illusion of compactness in any form, this thing is huge and they know it.

tl;dr is that driving cars is seen as a male thing to do because guys drive, crash and die in cars more commonly than women.

Which makes the authors assume that cars are an extension of male ego because auto manufacturers also pander to men more than women (cause the latter always failed).

I like one sentence from the paper that reads something like "Will the male be able to perform masculinity in a car without driving it?"

Just like true feminist propaganda, it sometimes accidentally asks good questions like about perceived gender equality where in most official videos, women are seen as mere passengers and driving cars is presented as this male thing. But then it goes and points out that the couple shown in the Nissan IDS showcase video is not gay and interracial enough. It's laughable.

Then it arrives to the conclusion that no, autonomous vehicles won't empower women inside them because that's not how this shit works.

The whole paper is pointless.

It can be summed up as:

"Car manufacturers should put more women driving cars in their videos."

Of course this paper is pointless and that's exactly the point!

Why none of us is writing this shit up?

Becasue we have better stuff to do, do we?

And someone is pumping loads of money to force women into male domains of expertise/self-actualisation. It makes both: them unhappy and the economy more messed up.

Took my 89 golf for it's annual* MOT test this morning, it passed with only one advisory note about a minor oil leak which I was already aware of. Imaginemysurprise.jpg

Half an hour later, turned the key… nothing. The ignition barrel is kerfucked.

A bit of wire, some sparks and smoke later, and I managed to start it up and make it home. Somehow, replacement parts are still available, despite the VW parts guy telling me they're not.

Tomorrow i'll be figuring out how to fit the new one…

Any other anons have a classic car as their daily driver, and how much of a pain in the colon is it?

*14 months, because I am absent-minded. Got away with it, again.

P.S., not my golf in pic, I don't have any… mine's a 1.6CL 4+E with electric, er, nothing, faded paint and some rough bits. Yes, it's a rat, but hasn't been modded (molested) by a teenager.

Funny you mention that.

When Škoda released the Favorit in 1987, they did in in a hatchback, small utility truck and a wagon form, however no sedan. They could only produce 2 working prototypes cause of money issues.

Now get this, they lost one of the prototypes, I don't know how, I don't know when, but basically one of the prototypes was just flat-out gone.

Took me 2 months, but she finally is in one piece. Clutch and brakes work, now got to tweak the ignition timing and the carburetor. Will install lights from a bicycle, it's too much of a hastle to find a generator for late 60s engine.

Once she runs will take it apart again and paint it.

Quick question for the engineers here:

I'm planning on building a pipe car that uses suspension similar to a humvee, just all independent suspension. Why? Cos fuck me that's why.

So first off… I'm not American. So I can't get a humvee or H1 to look at. But my understanding is this: drive shaft feeds into a drive gear, then into a wheel gear, which feeds into the wheel where there is nothing but the wheel and steering column in it, and the suspension rod close to the wheel gear.

So my question is this: what size rim would I need to get an x factor of 16 inches to accomodate for this?

I'm sorry, what?

Driveshaft feeds the differential which is a combination of a locker and a gear. These connect to the axles which have CV joints to vary their angle which are supported by springs and struts.

Why are you building a car if you don't even know basic terms? Eurofag's governments banned fun a long tim ago

I second this enquiry.
