      Scotty Kilmer Hey Scotty, love your channel! You’ve save me a bunch of money with my 2011 Honda Accord Sedan following your tips. I’m currently considering going back on the market for a 2019 Volkswagen Tiguan. How do you feel about these cars? Do you think i should stay far away from them or are they a good buy?

      Scotty Kilmer, question for your next Q&A. Whats your opinion on the Nissan 370z Manual 2009-now? If you dislike it, what car would you get that costs around the same price range (25k)? (Just a cheap car to have fun with and upgrade or whatever)

      They already have cars that drive themselves mixed in with normal drivers. It's literally here already. It just hasn't been made open to the general public. Uber and some other companies already have them on the road. They use sensors to avoid things on the road, it is completely feasible to have human and robot drivers on the road as its already being done. The only thing stopping it for going more mass produced is the laws. Once the laws catch up you will see these cars everywhere.

        Except for the fun factor, manual transmissions have no advantages anymore. Automatic transmissions are reliable - certainly more reliable than clutches!

                    Except the fact: Flying cars in essence is stupid, that's basically a plane. HOWEVER: A HOVER car would work better, don't have to worry about water etc. But that's WAAAY out in the future.

                    Between auto-driving and electrical cars, it's the only LOGICAL progress towards the future. The internal combustion engine is *160 years old*. It's old technology, and by standards of what we have, we need something new.

                    "Automatic driving cars will never happen."

                    We said the same thing about planes.
                    We said the same thing about breaking the sound barrier.
                    We said the same thing about computer needing more then 640K of ram
                    We said the same thing about robots.
                    We said the same thing about the internet.

                    Having such little imagination, leads to NO INGENUITY or progress. I like you Scotty, but don't be so negative of what we can achieve.


                    Scotty is right: It's either ALL OR NOTHING when it comes to automatic cars. It will probably take another 6 decades to achieve, once the baby boomers die off I can see the world actually progressing faster. Right now we are at stand still because of old logic and stupidity.


                    I hope I get to live to see the human race break the faster then light barrier, but the way human race is going, I doubt it.

                        2 quick questions, who in here thinks that the Supra should have a manual transmission?

                        If there was a Supra with manual transmission at your local Toyota, would you be able to buy it at MSRP price?

                            Scotty, I Luv Ya' bro, BUT, IF you study the gestation of the new Supra, you find that, in reality, the Z4 is a drop top, restyled version of the Supra. More than enough of Toyota's input went into this design. Even old Supra engineers were recruited to put this together. For sure, you CAN'T take this car to BMW to repair, for anything. Regardless, to tell you the truth, I'd much rather want the last generation Turbo!

                              cars are all the same, you get in start the engine and take your boring self to the boring place you want to be, you then take your boring self home to your boring home that also eats money. and you do the same everyday until you die.

                                                                As of 2014, only 2% of vehicles made and sold in the US have manual transmissions, primarily sports cars and work trucks. I enjoy my daily driver 2006 Silverado v8 with manual trans. 171K miles and still runs and drives like new, of course I do regular maintenance.

In Europe buying a car with an automatic transmission is rather seen as buying a more expensive version of the car. But even if there isn't unreliable automatic transmission, it's the unreliable diesel common rail engine that give money to mechanics.

I changed the oil every 4000 miles with Castrol. Never consumed or burned oil to this day. The only problem it had was the A/C compressor had to be replaced.

Anyway at first the car was overheating because it didn't have enough coolant so I added until it was full. I let the car running for a while until it would suck more of that coolant. Anyhow long story short, it's been about 2 months since I started driving it again but every now and then I'll see that the coolant reservoir level has gone down. I've checked for coolant leaks, found nothing. Is it normal for the radiator to keep sucking up coolant?
