      When you say the words "money pit", I sure would like to see the photo pop up behind you illustrating just what a money pit actually looks like. I am glad you show "bite you in the rear end" photos when those words crop up. Those photos make me laugh & ;^()+-| ha-ha.

                  As an owner of a 2nd generation Honda Fit, I can say yes it's a fabulously good car. Old school Honda reliability and simplicity. It just works. And it drives great too.

                          A truck with 4 doors and a short box is a waste of money. If you want a car get a car. If you need a truck get a truck that has a useable cargo space.

                                FJ Cruiser = Made in Japan, same engine as the 4Runner, about 18 mpg city. Get a 4Runner if you can't get the FJ. 4Runner has more space. The backseats of the FJ is tight, but front passengers has a lot of room, should room, far windshield, feel like a lot of space.

                                175,000 miles here and counting.. daily driver. Alternator died at 160,000 miles.

                                  Dear Kind Scotty Sir do you really want to call people Stupid?
                                  I would say it is unwise to.

                                  I mean is there Caring and Love and Understanding and putting yourself in another shoes in that word compared to the other options?
                                  I mean what about instead of stupid, you use a word like "Ignorant" or "Unwise" or "Unaware"?
                                  I mean if we want to get through to people with important helpful info, isn't the word stupid going to turn people off, make them feel like they are being attacked or even create low self esteem...I mean don't too many of us struggling and trying to survive in our world have our mind machine telling us we can't do anything right, that we are stupid?
                                  Thank you!
                                  Take care!

                                    My dad had a 2004 Chevy Suburban and it had 246,000 miles when he sold it. I beat that thing up when he let me drive it cuz I was a new driver so I floored it at every green light and revved the engine a lot and it never had a single issue

                                                      I've been driving Ford Ranger/Mazda's for over 20 years now and I'm had incredible luck with reliability and MPG's. (I only drive the 4 cyl with the manual transmission.)
                                                      I've put several hundred thousand miles on them and I have yet to have a single major problem. Change the oil every 3 thousand and timing belt every 50 thousand and change the plugs every 50 to 100 thousand miles and they will run forever.

                                                                Another thing you all need to realize about used police cars is that they have cery high enging running time. Also, the engine is going to die quick due to the fact that it has a police interceptor engine, not a regular engine. So my opinion, stay away.

Saying to not always be flooring it and changing the oil at 5k to 6k is common sense for ANY car. I dont care if you have a really a reliable car, always flooring it will kill any engine. Also they barley released to the US market so scotty hasnt had a chance to see the reliability. Yes other cars have those engine but they're actually reliable engine so not sure what hes talking about.

I guess that door thing is kinda open.. Maybe I should cycle the heat on and off until it closes itself.

Guys normally drive faster, but know how to control a car better and don't have a bunch of other girls chattering constantly! 75% at least of the females I see driving are on their phones and if lucky see 10% of males on their phones. By far most female drivers (especially teenage females) are a hazard to the rest of the drivers!! All in all, drivers of all ages and sex today are way worse drivers than back in the day!! They don't care and are totally unaware of driving etiquette!

                                                                                            To use SYNTHETIC BLEND What do I do? Do I go with what the ford book Manuel says or go with fully synthetic blend?
