      @Grzegorz Durda Gas sport shocks are nitrogen filled. KYB are quality brand. They are adjustable for the pricier racing shock.
      Air shocks are load leveling. And all out race cars don't use bags.

    They used to stretch financing to 5 years.
    Not they are stretching it to 7 years. It's getting like a mortgage.
    And by the time it is paid for - the vehicle is only worth 1/3 what you paid for it.
    That's a smart investment. All the idiots buying new cars and trucks. LOL.

        I could very well afford Many Multiples of NEW Cars and pay CASH for all of them.
        But I drive my old 1993 Geo Prizm worth about $500 on a good day.
        Why.??? Because it still WORKS.!!!

                Scotty is speaking the truth. My Civic is 2008. I replaced the condenser and compressor, and the clutch. I wouldn't want to do that on a newer car in the future.

                    I have never bought a new car. Got on fine for decades with 1 to 2 year old used cars. Besides, most modern cars are BORING.
                    My current car is over 10 years old.

                        Only stupid people would buy a new vehicle now . Buy at least 5 year old cars

                                  So everybody keeps driving oldbangers in the State pollution the kids longs is that what you want? The way I see the majority of the driving population will rent a car for three years the reason cars are to complex to repair anyway.If car makers want to change this rent a car just sell affordable cars which are reasonable reliable.Not rocket science is it?

                                    I looked at an 2019 Silverado@ $54K, and its too big to park in average parking spot, and likely wouldn't fit in average homes garage., for nearly $10K less I can build a garage with a lift and keep the older truck running virtually forever along with having ability to keep many others old trucks going as well, and now with the UAW morons striking for better benefits and wages that are currently more than the majority of other jobs requiring same amount of effort., who the hell do they think will be able to afford the fruits of the UAW as cost will most assuredly be passed along in the price of the vehicles they build, maybe instead of the 15 dollar minimum wage the leftists are wanting they should make minimum wage 30 dollars an hour so those average folks can buy what the UAW produces to keep the UAW morons employed

                                        We aren't buying a new car because none of them float our boat! They all look alike, they are too small, and we just don't like them! As my wife says, she is "underwhelmed"! We have a '97 Town Car that is paid for, comfortable, reasonably economical, well maintained, still looks good, and reliable. My wife and I have talked it over and agree we would rather maintain and spend more money on the TC than market value than many thousands on any of the current offerings we don't like!

                                                          I have to agree with you. That's the exact reason I drive older vehicles that I keep in good mechanical repair. I have a 93 Ford Explorer and a 97 S10. The way I see things. If it gets a dent,I'm not super pissed,The combined insurance is cheap on both of em. They get me where I need to go and do what I need them to do. All my $$ isn't tied up on car payments. That's why I won't move in with my gf. She's horrible with $$ and just bought a 2014 benz SUV looking thing. I told her not to buy it. I might just dump her because of that. I know that..well I'm pretty sure that she was thinking that she was gonna talk me into moving in with her. I make 3× what she does. She's wrong,she Basically talked me into dumping her.

Companies can keep their tech (lane departure warnings, self parking, auto headlights, auto wipers, fancy LCD screens everywhere, auto start) and all that garbage. Put the money into QUALITY motor and transmission instead.

Every vehicle has an ideal speed where it will stay in lockup high gear, but isn't suffering too much aerodynamic drag, which increases roughly to the square of increase in speed. Most cars and light trucks get best mileage at about 45 mph.
                                                                  Wide tires. More rolling resistance, more aerodynamic drag.
