Why do they even charge for airbags. Its should be a basic thing a car needs. Its for the safety of us.

I hate how the automotive industry has lost their minds over SUVs, and trucks, and all that bull. I mean, if they’re gonna make them, at LEAST make them look nice, and not flabby like the cars you see today.

As an urban construction worker I feel really under served by the new vehicles manufacturers are producing. I really don’t need a behemoth of a truck with endless stupid features. I’ll be giving my money to whoever is still making parts for my 05 Jeep for as many years as I can.

There is a tendency for manufactures to make each new generation of a given vehicle just a hair bigger that its predecessor, just to give buyers a reason to trade in what they've got for something bigger and one would hope, better. But every now and then, a new model becomes so bloated that buyers shun it in droves; that happened with the 1958-60 Lincolns, the 1971-73 Mustang, and the late 1990s Ford Excursion. So there are some limits, driven by maneuverability, garage sizes and, of course, the maximum width allowed (eg. 80" for passenger cars in the USA). It's a constant tug-of-war. One thing not mentioned is the imposition of strict rules on the transport of children. In the 1970s, it was normal to pack as many kids as would fit into the back of a station wagon; now, each child must have a legal seating position with appropriate restraints, nearly guaranteeing a market for large minivans or SUVs.

Well here in Argentina we have the Pickup truck situation, where the most sold vehicle is a freaking Toyota Hilux, and there's like 5 other brands that also makes midsizes trucks here. And to top it off, there's the compact and subcompact pick up truck, but that's another story.

"Road dieting" aka hostile design, doesn't cut down on accidents. It cuts down on fatalities. It increases accidents because margins for error are smaller, especially during inclement weather. But people travel more slowly, meaning fewer fatal accidents happen.

There are 2 types of cars, One's that are built for the thrill of driving and Transport vehicles American cars used to be awesome before the 1980's countless classics of all shapes and size's for over 50 years and they were nearly all Driver's cars Now for the last 40 years they make the ugliest SUV's(all SUV's are ugly) sedan's and cars in general and no Driver's cars there's the occasional retro throwback (Mustang's Camaro's) If anyone drive's a modern Mustang or Camaro how do you feel when a !960's model pulls up next to you? Kids starting to drive these day's must really struggle to get a decent ride for cheap.

Car designs go through bigger and smaller phases. There were a lot of small, powerful muscle cars in the mid 60s, gigantic land yachts in the early 70s, smaller European-inspired compacts during the 80s, microcars during the 90s, and wider but lower profile cars during the 2010s

Risk : as the possibility that an event will occur, which Risk is defined will impact an organization's achievement of objectives • Risk identification involves identifying, classifying, and prioritizing an organization’s assets Example of Risk? There are many forms of risk in an organization, including: IT Risk, Financial Risk, Operational Risk, Network Security Risk, and Personnel Risk. • Information Asset A • Value score (or impact) = 50 • Has 1 vulnerability with likelihood of 1.0 and no current controls • Our assumptions and data are 90% accurate • Asset A Vulnerability 1 = (50 x 1.0) - 0% (50 x 1.0) + 10% (50 x 1.0) = 50 - 0 + 5 = 55 • Public or External: Approved for public access • Official Use or Internal: Can be viewed by employees and authorized people • Private: sensitive data but unclassified (it won’t cause damage) • Confidential: Classified data that must be tightly controlled and secured Risk control strategies : • Defend • Transfer • Mitigate • Accept • Terminate Cost benefit analysis : Evaluate worth of assets to be protected and the loss in value if they are compromised

This is the exact reason that I still have and maintain my 1998 Toyota Tacoma. They literally do not make pick-ups that size anymore. I use it for light work and minor moving, it's great on gas and is nimble. I don't need a hulking beast of a truck to carry a pallet of fertilizer across town.

If you scale up a Toyota GR Yaris into a V8 engine it would basically be a 700 HP engine and there are V8 engines with that much HP currently available on the market. There are even vehicles with even more HP available, but I think it would be a rare person indeed that would try to daily a 1,000+ HP vehicle unlike something much more manageable like the Yaris(plus the cost is out of reach for a lot of people). My personal preference is to have a smaller displacement engine that I can top out while obeying most of the road "laws" for a daily driver and save the large displacement stuff for the weekend when I can go places that I can make use of that much more power. And while a 3 or 4 banger can do highway speeds for days on end; I like v8's for that a lot better because they are put into much larger vehicles with usually a lot better visibility, which is very important to me when I plan on traveling at high rates of speed for long periods of time.

"No replacement for displacement doesn't ring true anymore" I see we're back at it comparing boosted and NA figures... Of course you'll get higher figures per displacement, come back when you have high boost figures for an LS. There is NO replacement for displacement, only Band-Aids.

What I have realised is if they make very grippy tires is that at low speeds it will flip instead of slide and stop it from flipping. Also if they do make very grippy tires they could also make a soft suspension to stop it flipping I don't know much about cars but this is what I think.

Man, huge SUIVs are the worst. I drive a sedan. Nothing compact - a 2018 Honda Clarity Plug-in. Trying to turn out of an intersection, pull out of a parking spot, or even just see traffic lights and signs is harder when there's a land yacht in the way. And, they barely fit in parking spots anymore, so these suburban tanks make it harder to navigate around parking lots, too. I've seen so many recent Suburbans (and big-ass trucks, for that matter) double parking because they just don't fit in parallel parking spots anymore. Even worse, I've seen a few start taking to quad parking because they're both too wide and too long for spots. Quad parking isn't just for the jerk who just got their $200k supercar detailed - now it's for the land yacht too.

This is the problem with American manufacturers and Americans who buy larger than needed vehicles. They buy them when gas prices are low and bitches about feeding their family when prices go high. It's as if they didn't live through high gas prices before and it'll never happen again.

Man, do I agree with you! I've used up 4 Datsun 620 pickup's and still have a very nice one that would sell for a high enough price that I ought to sell it. Can't really stand the idea of using it up. Those pickup's would haul 99% of anything hauled by the "obscene" pickup's on the road today. I now have the last "standard" cab Toyota Tacoma made of reasonable size. A 2011. Its a clumsy behemoth compared to what we used to buy but tiny compared to what is being offered now.
