2023.03.29 01:32 minnesota420 2013 Honda Civic Sedan 205,000 miles $5500

Hi, I’m trying to buy a car. I found a dark blue 2013 Honda Civic with 205,000 miles.
I am aiming for this car because a mechanic on YouTube named Scotty Kilmer who isn’t sponsored by Honda or Toyota or other car companies recommended this year, make and model. He has a video on the best used cars to buy, but in summation these were the ones he recommended:
2012 Honda Accord, 2012 Ford Fusion, 2013 Honda Civic, 2012 Toyota Corolla, 2011 Toyota Camry.
This car will be used as a daily driver for work, groceries, and the gym. There might be a long trip once every couple of months.
I don’t have the full amount saved up for the car ($5500) but I did get financing on the car through a credit union. The interest rates suck and they always pull your worst credit, but the interest rating is 11.09%. With my credit, that was the best I’m going to get.
I’m assuming that the brakes will need to be changed, the fluids, and the suspension down the road. I’m going to check out the car tomorrow. And see how well it was maintained.
I know how to look on the inside of a car, under the hood and in the trunk, as well as on the paneling, to see if the car was in an accident. I know to check the undercarriage as best as possible, what to look for on a test drive (wobbling when it stops= rotors) weird noises, testing the AC.
The title for the car is a salvage title, but the owner claims it is due to hail damage. You can clearly see that in the pictures on Craigslist. Of course, there is no way to really know what’s up unless you see the car in person. Tomorrow, I’m going to see it.

2023.03.23 23:42 OhDaFeesh Code issue that has 3 local dealers giving me different answers.

I have a 2007 Toyota FJ cruiser with 195k KM on it. It has a 6 speed automatic and is AWD. The engine is the early style 1gr-fe 4.0 litre. I am the 3rd owner and have had it 6 years.
I live in a place that the vehicle doesn't have to pass smog inspections. But Since I use the vehicle for remote solo exploration, I'd rather know that things are in top shape and understand what's happening.
Never have an issue with it starting.
On very cold mornings, 'll start the car. It has no issues starting. but sometimes (once every 10 starts lets say) a CEL will come on.
Other times, the CEL will come on when I put a load on the engine when accelerating up hill. But not always. The CEL will also turn off on its own after a week sometimes.
When The CEL will does come on, the code will say sometimes just be p0606. Sometimes it will be p0430. Sometimes it will be p0420. And sometimes it's a combination of all of them.
If I clear the codes, I won't get the CEL for sometimes months, other times days.
As a lark, I added defoulers to the post CAT O2 sensors on each bank. Once those were added, I never got any CELs.
I removed the O2 spacers and tried the lacquer thinner trick from Scotty Kilmer. That worked for abut 6 months. But since I sometimes get no codes for months anyways, I'm not certain it made a difference.
I brought it to one Toyota dealer, they change the 02 sensors and said it was fixed. It wasn't. I brought it back and they said I needed new cats. I brought it to another dealer, they said it needed a new ECM but not new CATS as they were testing fine (whatever they used to diagnose it I don't know). I brought it to a third dealer about 45 minutes from my home and said I need to replace both the ECM and the CATS.
I have no idea who to believe. and since I live in a place that doesn't need a smog check, I'm not even certain this is worth the money to fix. I don't have any issues with oil burning. I don't have any issues with fuel economy (this engine was always a guzzler).
EDIT: I should add, I did have an exhaust leak after the CATS at a y pipe. The entire exhaust after the cats was replaced as well as the gaskets. There were no leaks detected from the cats to the manifold. Even after replacement, I still get the CEL if using the 02 spacers.
I'd just like some feed back from other independent mechanics to give me their 2 cents. I'd very much appreciate your thoughts and options on what I should do. thank you .

2023.03.21 13:34 Dimtar_ 2010 BMW 328i

My moms coworker is telling her husband to sell his bmw since he has kids and they have a family car now. Its being driven on here and there occasionally since they got an SUV just over a month ago.
He drove it as a daily for several years and it has 200,000 km, nearly all highway since his commute was 50km/day for quite some time, and has been maintaining it well. Money isn’t a big issue for him and he was in the process of getting it safetied/cleaned out/etc. to sell but says he’ll give it to me for $4000 instead of having to go out and sell it. This is exponentially below market, but nepotism always prevails I guess.
I on the other hand have a 2006 honda pilot with 320,000 km (200k miles, it’s in yeehaw units for some reason) on it that is more rust than car at this point, and has subframe rust issues (see my post history, will cost upwards of $1500 to fix) and is due for timing belt soon, and is known for transmission issues in high mileage. not really worth fixing.
I need a car to get me through the rest of university, but know BMWs (especially old ones) are unreliable and notoriously expensive to fix. This one was built in germany, and I’ve heard from Scotty Kilmer (everyone’s favourite car youtuber) that cars built in their home country are typically better made (hondas that are made in japan instead of canada/us, bmws that are made in germany instead of america/mexico etc.).
For $4000 and a good maintenance history I can’t go wrong, right? I might have to pay a hefty amount in taxes since it’s well below the black book value, but anything else I should look out for?

2023.03.15 14:05 NealAnblome The infamous Range Rover?

I wanna start this off by saying I really don't give a shit about reliability in general, and I'd rather drive and have to repair something nice that makes me excited, than drive in any 'ReLiAbLe' heap of junk, just because Scotty Kilmer or some other asshole said so.
However, Land Rovers seem to have a reputation for being extremely unreliable, which is why I'm paying attention here.
The reasons I'm considering this one over anything else: - It's (allegedly) very comfortable, not far behind S classes, Bentleys and other stuff whose main selling point is comfort and luxury - It's very spacious and practical, capable of transporting not just people, but objects, rougher materials etc. - It's got genuine off-road capability, wherever you need to wander, it's got your back - It's luxurious and aesthetic, so you can take it to fancy occasions and meetings as well.
The thing is, I'm a country boy at heart, and I love nature, isolation and traveling to distant locations, but at the same time I work a well paid white-collar job, so I can't avoid occasional big city drives, fancy meetings and what not. The Range Rover seems to be the only car that can cover all of that, and more.
I briefly thought about a Jeep Grand Cherokee to (partially) cover those needs, but they seem to have an even worse reputation, and offer less.
Now, I'd be aiming for a Range Rover Sport, about 10 years old, under 90k miles, and: - The '09 - '13 generations of both the regular and the sport version are supposed to be not-as-bad when it comes to reliability - I live in a country where mechanics and car repairs are relatively cheap - I'd maintain and inspect the car regularly, instead of driving it mindlessly until it breaks, like many do - I heard that learning to perform some basic maintenance/fixing yourself can actually help a lot
With all those things in mind, I'd like to hear the opinions. Should I go for this, and if yes, are there any other tips on how I can get a decent experience out of it? If not, and you think this is just a disaster waiting to happen, what would you suggest instead?

2023.03.08 01:17 paperscan Should i really get an oil change done before 10,000 miles on a gas 2022 rav4 XLE premium?

My dad said to get it done before the 10,000 mile mark since it is a new car. He said even Scotty Kilmer recommends them on new Toyotas. I'm currently at 7,500 miles. I drive about 2,500 miles per month, so I am expecting to bring it to the dealer late this month or sometime next month.
My only worry is that when I bring it into the dealer for the 10,000 mile oil change if they will be like "sorry the 2y25k mile service plan is void because you went and did your own thing"

2023.03.05 16:47 BornAbbreviations859 Used 2008 RX 400H: Why So Inexpensive?

About to nab an RX400H from 2008 with ~120K miles for about $11,000. The Kelly Blue Book has Fair Purchase Price for the car about $3 thousand less, but I wasn't seeing anything in the market that's even close to that figure. That difference aside, sincere question: why are these crossovers so cheap? They were over $40K new, are relatively luxury, and have a ton of favorable reviews online (including Scotty Kilmer (character LOL) talking about how it's the best used SUV to get).
I'm familiar with some of the most common issues with the car and they seem to be pretty mild all considered. Is there something I'm missing?!

2023.03.04 01:24 ruley2000s Can a surfboard fit in a Sienna?

So, I currently own a '19 Highlander and with the 2nd, 3rd and passenger seats down (passenger fully reclined) I can actually squeeze an 11' longboard into it. I like shoving surfboards in rather than strapping them on top whenever possible .... less hassle and fewer potential issues. The Highlander is awesome - solid built, rides great, and absolutely no issues whatsoever after 50k+. That all being said, the 2nd row is starting to get tight on our 2 teens when we take long trips. We've rented minivans in the past so we appreciate the extra room they afford, and I am a big fan, BUT, with the 2nd row in the new Sienna not folding flat, I am thinking it's not going to be possible to fit my longboards in it, which seems ridiculous seeing as how minivans have more overall cargo space. Thought about the competition as an alternative, but to be honeat, I only want hybrids or electric, and there is no way i would ever buy a Chrysler ... maybe I've watched too much Scotty Kilmer :). Does anyone have any thoughts on the ability to fit 9', 10' or even 11' surfboards in a '23 Sienna? I have an opportunity to lock in a Woodland, but because of the 2nd row not folding flat, I am thinking I should just wait for the Grand Highlander. Thanks for any feedback!

2023.02.27 18:38 Cool_Soft8274 Scotty Kilmer and the custom sex swings

I saw somewhere on a YouTube short or something similar where some guys were talking about Scotty and that he actually makes some type of custom sex (swing?) or something alike, and I’m dying to know if it was just a joke. I don’t know if it was a sex swing or what, but I know it had to do with sex and that he made them custom and sold them, but no longer does. It would make sense that it’s just a joke but I couldn’t put it past em, I’ve always enjoyed his videos tho lol. Any info would be appreciated lol

2023.02.25 13:11 gantzzbot Diluente na gasolina?!

Olá a todos,
Recentemente tenho tido alguns problemas com o meu carro, que já tem 120.000 km rodados. Um dos problemas é o código P0420, que indica baixo desempenho do catalisador. Após fazer uma rápida pesquisa, encontrei um vídeo do Scotty Kilmer (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5icTmYItwiE) que sugere que colocar um diluente no tanque de combustível pode ajudar a limpar o catalisador. Alguém já experimentou essa solução? Será que é uma boa ideia? E qual seria o equivalente a "lacquer thinner" em Portugal?
Agradeço antecipadamente pelo vosso feedback!

2023.02.24 07:31 Automatic_Vacation_3 Advise on maintaining my 2016 2.5i Limited Subaru Outback

I guess my question is what mileage based replacements/checks should I be getting?
80,000 Miles so far, using for Extreme Ohio Weather, driving me to work, and long drives to the golf course
Anything in this year OB model that’s important to look out for when the time/mileage comes? - had problems with weak windshields (couple crack, one replacement so far) and burning oil (only once between an oil change)
Any Recommendations on interior upkeep? -Have weather tech floor liners, driver side seat has leather cracking near stitches already :( sad
Any exterior paint polishes or coatings you would recommend to help paint stay in good shape?
Pads and rotors? What mileage do I need to be replacing these?
For fun, any add ins or aftermarket’s you would recommend investing into? I have heard of replacing rear sway bar with a more stiff one, pros and cons to both types of sway bars so Idk what’s the move.
Lastly if you think these questions are stupid or I’m being lazy or whatever, please do direct me to where I could get this information :)
Bought a 1.5 years ago used, payed in full and it’s the first car I have ever owned. Did tons of research on car brands, models, functionality and I’m 100% totally sold on Subaru and will probably always drive an outback! Don’t have parents to advise me on car so most of my car knowledge comes from Scotty Kilmer and other YouTube mechanics.

2023.02.23 20:12 FoxxPVP2002 Car stalling on its own

So i recently changed the transmission fluid and since then the car has stalled two times when letting off the clutch but there is no bump, the engine just stops. I then saw a video of scotty kilmer on changing transmission fluid and he said if it hasnt been changed in a really long time just leave it, because it can cause the gears to slip. Could that be the case with me? The car has nearly 200.000 km (120.000 miles) and is a 1993 316i. And i dont know if any previous owners changed the transmission fluid.
