It would probably explode.

Still halfway looking into them, but I'm pretty terrified of VW maintenance costs. My mom had a passat years ago. It was awesome until it hit 100k and then it started doing lots of very bad things, like eating engines.

I had a jetta, and besides the a/c going out, it was a champion. Only reason I got rid of it was b/c we just had another kid, and the a/c happened to go out right around that time and the lady friend wanted a bigger vehicle.

120k miles with no A/C, still got 5k for it

Moms must've been a turd. It literally ate the first engine by breaking the timing belt and dropping the valves. Chewed itself all to hell.

Ate the 2nd engine when the oil pump went out.

I'm probably going to get a small truck just because I hate cars. Found a nice one that I'm looking into now.

Big green is rocking the straight pipes right now

I found a c1500 scsb Chevy with a v6 and 5spd low miles for not too much. Might go look at it this weekend.

Just don't think I can bring myself to buy a damn car.

Always sounded like you had glass packs on that thing when I heard it driving

FWIW, you aren't gonna see that awesome of mileage with a V6 single cab. My buddy got like 14 with his

Seriously???

I'm driving a 1994 1500 extended cab with a v6 and automatic getting 18-20.

Eta: big green is getting a whole new exhaust setup soon. Blew out the flowmaster so I replaced it with a piece of pipe. Been running straights all semester. I hate it. Sounds great inside the truck though.

I'd get a little car for the commute you have to make.

You'll be fine with it when you're getting 40 highway mpg.

Tell that to the black guy who lives down the street from my parents.

Yea. It ain't worth trading in or selling. Insurance is cheap on it and its not worth anything.
