    I hate my car because...

    Advertisement



    I've been having car troubles for the past month or two... therefore, I thought this would be fun!

    I hate my car because...
    On the way back from my Alaskan Cruise i took with my wife the alternator died 30 miles from home at 2am and I had to call a tow truck... great end to a vacation.

    I hate my car because...
    In order to change the alternator, you have to take off both front tires, remove the passenger side tie rod and snake some form of 3 ft extension through from the drivers side to loosen it. I took it to a mechanic. He now hates me I think.

    One of the tires blew out the sidewall today so it looked like it had a huge blister. Two new front tires on it as of noon.

    Any other takers?
    As always, just my opinion...

    Mike sounds like when I had my Durango! Loved that truck but gas in a 5.9 ltr V8 engine is hella expensive and the car payment was close to my rent lol.

    ~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~i hate my car because I live in Arizona and I paid for an aftermarket dash replacement hole to fit the stereo I'd been saving up for. And the air conditioning controls don't work.

    My car is an inherited '95 Contour SE. All leather, power everything with a sunroof. Basically has the SVT package as far as suspension and handling. It was my grandma's and when she passed away I got it. With only 50K on it I might add.

    Great car and for free I can't argue, but it spent most of its life sitting in a garage collecting dust. Therefore, odd things are going wrong with it.

    I can't see how people drive vehicles that get less than 20 MPG. The Contour gets me around 28 if I'm nice to the gas. That really sucks for me coming from an Echo which got us around 46. Than again, we drive close to 50 miles a day so it's more of a concern for me than most.

    Sorry, no complaints here. '05 VW Jetta GLI. Love this car. 7th VW I've owned, hands down the most fun of any of them to drive. 30 in the city, 33-35 highway, depending on the day. 6 Speed Stick, Turbo, BBS alloys, blah blah blah. Yep love this car.
