Oh wow I'd forgotten about those steamin dung piles. Yeah, terrible terrible "engineering".Yeah, but they're still better than the variable venturi carbs that came on early 80's Crown Vics. The only thing "variable" about them is how long you could keep 'em running!
Yeah, plus one here, my 2008 MINI Cooper Turbo R55 was a trainwreck of a BMW / Peugeot abortion that lived, and had no spare as well. The run-flats were awful for ride quality and handling so I pitched them for Firestone Firehawks.2010 bmw 335XI.... fun to drive when everything worked as it should however in the 2 years I owned it I had to change the water pump twice because the plastic housing cracked and I was stranded on the side of the road with a flat due to the car not having a spare (they don't come with one). The car didn't have much space and I was getting tired of the hype over German vehicles and their overpriced parts for the garbage they are. then my insurance randomly surprised me with a 56% increase in rates at renewal due to my model of car being involved in more accidents... lol right, that has nothing to do with my record or my driving. So I changed insurance companies and sold the car
I've had my frontier for 2 years now and have had basically zero issues. The gas mileage sucks but it's worth the reliability and not having to wrench on it every other month! I figure it balances itself out in the end.
2011 Nissan Xterra. It had 135K trouble-free miles before getting rear-ended.Thought this might make for interesting (if not entertaining) thread: What did you drive before you bought your Frontier?
As for me, a 2005 Honda CRV 2WD. Loved it. Very practical little vehicle for driving around town. Always got at least 22 mpg in town, and upwards to 30 if strictly highway driving.
Although the Frontier doesn't get those type of mpgs, I knew what I was buying when I bought it. Plus, I feel like I have some added testosterone now that I'm driving a truck!
