volvo lb 30 Q&A Review

There was a guy in a suit drunk & flat on the street late at night; later insisted he didn't need help getting a cab when he didn't even know where he was and couldn't manage stairs. What should I have done/should I do in similar future situations?

Because I’m so comfortable with this degree of drunkenness (I was in addiction services for 15+ years), I’m perfectly OK talking to people who are extremely drunk, deny it, and put themselves at harm. Don’t let the suit influence you. You may believe bums are the only people who feel comfortable passing out on the sidewalk. Well, this guy is a bum in a suit. CALL 911 NOW for an ambulance. I think on 30 Rock Alec Baldwin made a crack about the difference between rich driving and drunken driving. They’re the same, believe me. One New Year’s Eve, on the way back from the Central Park Run at midnight, I pulled up at the Greenwich rest stop. I couldn’t help but noticing the Japanese man, in his early 30’s, in his upscale BMW, discreetly vomiting every few minutes. He’d open his car door, his head would disappear, and globs of vomit would appear on the pavement. Before I went into the building, I stopped to chat with the guy, who was behind the driver’s wheel. “How ya feeling?” I asked, nonchalantly. “I’m fine.” he said, meekly. He was reeking of vomit and alcohol. Even his expensive sweater was splashed with vomit. Sure, my hair was matted to my head with sweat and ice pellets, all my layers of ugly ass running clothes were drenched and stuck to me, and my shoes were covered with mud (you wear discardables when you’re racing in bad weather). But the race number pinned to my t-shirt explained my appearance. “You know, I’m a nurse in an alcohol ward, and I don’t know, somehow I think you don’t feel fine. People who feel fine hardly ever vomit non-stop and look as sick as you do.” He nodded. I told him I’d get him some paper napkins inside and something to drink, like water. “Thanks,” he said. I came out with a huge handful of paper napkins and a bottle of water. I also handed him a chunk of icy snow. He looked so relieved. “Just sip the water. If you take a big gulp, you’re going to barf again.” I cautioned. “Press the snow/iceball against your face and neck when you get those waves of heat from a hangover. “You can tilt your seat back, and no one should bother you. Clean yourself up a little. “And there’s one thing I want to be clear about. You get on the highway and I’ll crash into your car myself if I see you. [At the time, I had a big, 4000 lb. elderly Volvo. I’d seen my ex-’s absorb the impact of getting hit by a Honda in front of our house. The Honda was totaled. He got a small concave dent.] I’ve got my precious daughter in the car [whom he could easily see] and if you think you’re capable of driving around her safely right now, let me tell you you’re wrong. “Just stay here until it’s dawn or so, or if you can call someone to pick you up. I can’t even imagine how you got here alive. I don’t want you to get killed or anyone else. OK?” He assured me he would. He thanked me as profusely as his weakened state would allow. He settle back in his car with the seat lowered. Another typical day for us.

What is your review of the 2016 Volvo XC90?

1.The XC90 is a handsome, square-jawed Swede striving to offer more efficiency and safety than its rivals while adding a dose of Scandinavian flair. Models marked T5 are powered by a 250-hp 2.0-liter turbo inline-four; T6 trims add a supercharger to the 2.0-liter for an increase to 316 hp. An 87-hp electric motor joins the party in T8 plug-in hybrid models. There’s room for seven in the elegantly appointed interior, with deeply comfortable seats as well as Sensus, Volvo’s infotainment system. 2.,Overview: ,After extended product doldrums due to changing overlords, Volvo has emerged as strong as ever with the launch of ,the XC90 SUV, for 2016, the impressive start of an all-new lineup developed under Chinese owner Geely. With an upright and bold countenance, the XC90 exudes confidence, and its nearly Range Rover–rivaling presence, along with a full complement of features and technology, comfortably earns its way further upmarket than previous XC90s. Lest you think it’s getting by on looks alone, the Volvo manages to pack more third-row and cargo space—with hooks and tie-downs aplenty—in a footprint similar to peers such as ,the Audi Q7,, ,the Land Rover Range Rover Sport,, and ,the BMW X5,. Unlike its competitors, however, the Volvo is powered solely by a 2.0-liter four-cylinder that comes in three strengths: the turbocharged 250-hp T5, the turbo- and supercharged 316-hp T6, and the 400-hp electric-motor-assisted T8 plug-in hybrid. Entry-level T5 models are five-seat only and come with front- or all-wheel drive, while the T6 and T8 add a third row—except for the pinnacle T8 Excellence model, which is a four-seater—and standard all-wheel drive. 3.,What’s New: ,We’ve said before that the XC90’s exquisite interior is worthy of a vehicle costing twice as much, and for 2017, Volvo concurs, launching the ,range-topping $105,895 Excellence,, an ultra-luxurious four-seat version of the plug-in T8 that more than doubles the XC90’s $46,745 starting price. Also available this year is an ,output upgrade for the T8 hybrid, from Volvo’s in-house tuning arm, Polestar, which adds 21 horsepower and 30 lb-ft of torque. And the Sensus infotainment system now includes additional built-in app integration, the most noteworthy of which is the streaming-music service Spotify. This means songs no longer have to be funneled through a user’s smartphone, and full control is possible through the XC90’s 9.0-inch touchscreen (when using Spotify via Apple CarPlay, the app’s functionality is significantly 4.,What We Like:, The decadently detailed and gorgeous interior including open-pore walnut wood trim, which also adorns the sliding cupholder cover, in the elevated Inscription-trim T6 and test cars we evaluated. Here’s another example of the above-and-beyond detailing: The stitching that decorates the leather dash and door inserts actually continues unabated behind the grab tab for the sunshades on the rear side glass. And the key fob is wrapped in the same caramel beige leather as the seats. We’re also fans of the minimalist dash design, although it’s enabled by packing almost everything into the complex but quick-responding Sensus touchscreen infotainment system, which will require some acclimation time, especially for those who aren’t regular tablet users. Get used to swiping left to find audio and apps, right for vehicle functions, and down for settings. As with a just-right mattress, at first the front seats seem overly firm, but the more time spent in them the more orthopedically perfect they feel, although there’s not much lateral bolstering to hold occupants in place during aggressive cornering. Surprisingly, the 21-inch wheels and tires on our T6 didn’t ruin the ride, and the steering is sharp and properly weighted. The XC90 also has a number of surprise-and-delight features such as a sunroof shade that automatically closes in hot weather, the ability to adjust the passenger seat using the driver’s-side controls, and an available built-in child booster seat in the center seat of the second row. 5.,What We Don’t Like: ,We’re not convinced that four-cylinder-only power is the way to go, not so much for performance reasons—although, by a narrow margin, the XC90 was the slowest in ,its last comparison-test appearance,—but mostly because the engine sounds gravelly in its upper reaches, which is discordant with the luxury mission. These deficiencies of the Volvo powertrain, and the more athletic behavior of the Audi Q7, caused the Audi to just outpoint the XC90 as our 10Best award winner for ,best mid-size luxury SUV,. VIEW PHOTOS We haven’t found the XC90 to return significantly better fuel economy than competitors powered by sweeter-sounding, smoother six-cylinder engines. However, a T6 model did achieve 27 mpg on our 75-mph highway-fuel-economy loop, 2 mpg better than its EPA rating and 3 mpg better than an Audi Q7 with a supercharged V-6. We’d like a setting between Comfort, where the XC90’s off-the-line response feels a bit soft, and Dynamic, which raises the idle to 1000 from 875 rpm and arguably overstimulates throttle response. We’d also like to see Volvo tune the brake response: eliminate the sensation of the pedal squishing through some travel before biting and, once it does, slightly reduce the pedal effort required. Although navigation is standard, we’d trade it for Apple CarPlay and Android Auto functionality, which we think should be included at this price point. CarPlay is currently optional, while Android Auto is supposedly coming but not yet available. It’d be hard to recommend the T8 plug-in hybrid for the $11,550 upcharge over an equivalent 316-hp T6. It doesn’t pull like it’s packing 400 horsepower, in part because it weighs 450 pounds more. The T8 is only a couple of ticks quicker than an Audi Q7 with the 333-hp V-6, and we’ve found its fuel economy to be extremely underwhelming. The T8 actually did worse than the T6 on our 75-mph, 200-mile highway test, returning 26 MPGe. Plus, the extra weight makes the XC90 feel more ponderous and diminishes ride quality. 6.Perhaps because Volvo continues to ,telegraph its interest, in pushing toward fully autonomous capability, we found it unnerving that the Pilot Assist feature in the XC90, which promises lane centering in addition to the automatic speed control of the adaptive cruise, always uncomfortably hugged the left side of the lane. And the system doesn’t steer strongly enough to stay in its lane, even through moderate curves. Based on this behavior, full autonomy seems light-years away. Verdict: ,A gorgeously compelling new entry that is upending the luxury-SUV oligarchy.

Which car should I buy in my 20s? An affordable car or a luxury car?

Both! My 2012 Volvo XC60 cost me $14,261 out the door (taxes, dealer fees, everything included) in January 2017, when I was 22 years old. These pictures were taken March of 2020. Clean, no? Only spot of wear is the gearshift, after years of resting my hand there. Not my actual car, but I have this engine. It is a 3.0L Turbocharged inline 6. 300 Horsepower and 325 Lb-Ft of torque. It’s very easy to work on, but being a Volvo it hardly ever needs work. Engine, transmission, AWD system, AC compressor, alternator, water pump, radiator, and turbocharger are all original, never been replaced. Even the huge panoramic roof and shade still works perfectly. Here it is with the cover removed. Note it’s inline 6 design. I can change all 6 spark plugs and coils in 30 minutes with hand tools. Faster with power tools. Also note how easily accessible the AC compressor is. It’s buried behind the radiator in a lot of cars. Still fast too, even with all the miles. Cruise even catches at 120, if you’re brave enough. As far as repairs, I’ve needed both front axles, PCV oil trap, a wheel bearing, fuel rail pressure sensor, both headlights (HIDs that swivel in turns, $135/each. Ouch. But they lasted 185k and I drive at night a LOT) and Volvo didn’t seal the windshields correctly from the factory on these and they tend to leak, so I had that replaced as well. That’s all I can think of. Besides that, just maintenance. If you want to save some money, get a 2013 because before that, some of them had problems with burning oil. 2014 saw updates in the interior and exterior, and early 2015s were carried over. Late build date 2015s got a new 4 cylinder engine, which should be avoided until 2017 models because they suffer from oil burning issues as well. I absolutely love my Volvo. It’s fast, safe, quiet, supremely comfortable, with modern features despite being 9 model years old. Cheap to insure as well. When it was my only vehicle, I had full coverage with a rideshare extension and paid less than $100/month. It’s also unbeatable in snow thanks to it’s Haldex AWD system, and more capable off road than you think. You can have you cake and eat it too!

What is SAL?

This Swedish engineering has produced an outstanding example of a low cost, single engine aircraft equally comfortable with air-to-air engagements or close air support. It features a net-centric approach that allows Gripens to seamlessly communicate with one another or even link up with other NATO allies flying nearby. If the Gripen is called upon to do Close Air Support, it can take its cues directly from a forward air controller on the ground. While the Gripen C and D were the first major variants to fly, the Gripen E recently made its debut in 2016. It features an enhanced sensor suite, upgraded avionics deck, and the ability to take off and land on carriers. The major advance of the Gripen E/F is its active electronically scanned array (AESA). This gives the Gripen a fantastic way to track multiple targets throughout the course of the encounter. Foreign Exports: Gripens have developed a long way since their first maiden flight in 1988. The newest version of the Gripen is referred to as the Super JAS. Initial customers include Sweden and Brazil. A very small number of these aircraft exist and are in use but that has not limited their involvement with NATO-led operations. Both the Czech Republic and Hungary, upon becoming members of NATO, respectively pursued the Saab Grippen. In the Czech Republic’s case, they found leasing to be a good option. Hungary was able to procure some older models for use. Cost: In fact, the one concise thing that can be said about the Gripen is that it is a fantastic fighter jet at a terrific price. With an older model Gripen C retailing anywhere between $30 to $60 million dollars (USD), it’s a fourth generation fighter jet that is comparable to ,the F-16C Fighting Falcon,. The F-16C retails for around $18.8 million but the fly-away cost trends up to $80 million. This makes the F-16C an understandable top choice for a lot of foreign militaries. The Gripen has a better range and has a fly-away cost of $85 million according to sources at the ,National Interest,. This makes it not only competitive but extremely accessible to other European nations. With the ability to take off and land on an aircraft carrier, it’s also been eyed by India and Brazil. Powerplant: The Saab Gripen is powered by a single Volvo RM12 afterburning turbofan. The Volvo RM12 produces a dry thrust of 12,100 lb-ft (54 kN) and 18,100 lb-ft (80.5 kN) with afterburner. See Saab Gripen Specifications Length:, 46 feet 3 inches (14.1 m); two-seater variants (D/F): 48 feet 5 inches (14.8 m) Wingspan:, 27 feet 7 inches (8.4 m) Height:, 14 feet 9 inches (4.5 m) Max.

Is the Toyota GT86/Subaru BRZ a good first car?

the, ToyoBaru, is a great car. The ,Scion FRS/ Toyota GT 86/ Subaru BRZ, is a join venture between Subaru and Toyota. For the most part they are the same car with slight differences in price and spec’s. the Subaru for whatever reason has a 1,200 - 1,600 lower MSRP price, and includes more equipment at it’s basic Trim compared to a Toyota ( scion is now a Defunct brand.) the Subaru also has slightly better Suspension and is equipped with different suspension parts then the Toyota sold variant. The suspension on the Subaru is better for sporty driving on a track compared to the Toyota but just as good for normal daily driving. The flat four engine used in the cars is derived from Subaru and is a huge draw for any Subaru fan or even some Porsche fans who liked the older air cooled boxsters. they engine is good for 197/200hp and provides 150/151 lb per foot of torque. this puts these cars only slightly ahead some common Sedans like a VW Jetta or ford Focus. where numbers like 160–180hp and 140–150 lb’s of torque is the norm. What the Toyobaru makes up for it’s lack of power however, is superb handling. it’s a RWD car that is built to handle, this thing is perfect for Drifting ( dont do that in your first car.) and is very easy to drive. it’s the kind of car that will make any owner become a driving enthusiast. it’s like when my GF got a Golf, it’s been a year since then and she still makes up excuses to go out for a drive because she loves how the car responds and handles. this car is essentially a larger ,MX 5 Miata, from Mazda with a slightly more powerful engine ( unless you got the more powerful Mazda engine then it just feels like they added a lot of weight and 20hp to make up for it somehow. But, i would not get this as a first car. a first car is important, it can set up how a person is with vehicles for the rest of their life, that's why so many people who started out with a Camry or corolla suck at driving. the other problem is somewhere around 90% of new drivers, crash their first car at some point. and once that first car is crashed the numbers Drop hard down below 30% in this case i would suggest something else to start with. My first choice would be a, Subaru Impreza,.some points it’s Very safe and well equipped. Handles like a sporty car with a decent ride and is decent on fuel efficiency. the hatchback version ( the hatchback is always the best version of a car come on) has lots of room in the truck and will fit you and your friends on whatever shenanigans you get into. flat 4 engine is still there just not as powerful, still a peppy car and with minimal modification will sound very nice. (insert clip of flat four engines on a rally stage) VW Jetta/Golf, ( the golf is just a hatchback Jetta, but both of these cars handle fantastic, are peppy, come equipped nice and are a lot more affordable then people might think of a German car. as well as reliable.) the now deceased Ford Focus,( under neath shared many similarities with the current Mazda 3, had tight Go kart like steering and handling and a nice engine. since they stopped production in the U.S. you’ll probably be able to find used ones for a good price. but parts will still be easy to get because now the Focus here in the states is the same one sold world wide. it’s a fan favorite and a best seller over seas.) Ford Fiesta also i think deceased ,( if you did.. im just saying… get a Fiesta ST. oh man, you dont understand how good these things are. especially the newest ones. a 200hp engine in a tiny little hatchback like that is already a blast, make it handle nice and give it one of the best manual transmissions available and it would have been a best seller like overseas if only.. Americans knew how to drive a stick… You could go with Mazda, a ,Mazda 3 or 6, is also a decent car with similar aspects to a impreza above with the exception of the safety not being as good, really very few cars beat Subaru at making safe vehicles, the exceptions being Mercedes and Volvo. car’s to steer away from. Honda Civic ( we know the guy who talks about V-tec right? anyone told him other’s have it too they just dont call it something silly.) Honda accord ( best seller yea, also has the drivers feedback and gas pedal from a fisher price kids toy.) Toyota Camry ( lets be honest, the only reason anyone gets a toyota is because they dont are about their car and want something they can be lazy and not take car of but continue to use.) Toyota Corolla ( same as above, although funny enough that Hand brake it has is pointless, does not work until you’ve pulled it 90% as far as it can, then it ‘kind of brakes’ utterly useless.) Muscle cars like a Camaro or Mustang ( remember that stat about people crashing their first car? that increases to nearly 98% when it’s a powerful RWD car.) any used car with more then 100K miles on the clock, you’re already going to most likely crash the thing, dont get a complete junker. going in hand with the junker thing, when you look for a car, if it’s a used one try not to get anything close to 60K miles unless it’s already had it’s 60K service done. most cars have a maintenance schedule and one of the most important visits is the 50 or 60K mile service depending on the car. that's when the most work goes into it before people sell it or go on to get a new one. if it’s missed that service you’ll have to get it done if you want the car to last you at all with few problems. this goes doubly for any amazing German engineering, miss out service on a German car and it’s going to hate you for it. Car fax and similar reports are your friend here and most dealers will have it available. if it’s got under 80K double check to see it’s service record. if the record is not available, it’s like making a bad bet at a casino. Honorable Last minute mentions of some good cars that are out. Hyundai Velostar N, 270hp fwd hatchback that was developed by Former BMW M divison tech’s. handles very nice. Kia Stinger, sounds like a name that should have been used by now, essentially Kia making a car that competes with a Audi a7/Porsche Panamera ( nearly the same car as it is) for 70 grand less. still a more adult car then the others but none the less a recommendation. and you can spec it with 365HP in a RWD ,KIA

What amazing feats of engineering goes into making a full-size hauler like Volvo/PACCAR/Kenworth truck engines?

These engines are really high performance engines, and while the horsepower rating may not reflect it (though many of these engines are rated at 500+ hp), it is the torque that truely sets these engines apart. Prime example, a 550 horsepower C-15 Caterpillar engine can put out 1850 lb-ft of torque. But these engines are as finely tuned and well built as any race engine. I’ll mention a few features that many engines have. High compression,. Diesel engines do not use spark plugs to ignite the fuel, they use only the heat from compression. While most street cars run 9:1 compression ratios, and full race engines will see 12:1, diesels commonly run in the 16–18:1 range. That’s a lot of cylinder pressure, and the internal components are built strong to deal with them. Boost. The diesel industry embraced the turbocharger and forced induction long before it became common on gasoline engines. Today, it is far more rare to see a Diesel engine without a turbo then with. Compared to most gasoline engines, we run very high boost pressures (this, just like the compression ratio, is mostly because of the issue of detonation in gas engines with high cylinder pressures or lean mixtures). Your average turbocharged or supercharged performance gasoline engine will be lucky to see 10–15 psi of boost while most of our engines run in excess of 30 psi boost pressure. Now with the high boost, we’ve also embraced technology with the use of intercoolers and aftercoolers and cold air intakes. We have also pioneered new technology like the variable geometry turbo as well. Fuel delivery Diesels have pretty well always used direct injection, something that gasoline engines have only recently embraced. Today’s engines are seeing better electronics, pumps and injectors that allow us to run higher fuel pressures, and allow for better control. A high pressure common rail is becoming more and more common in the Diesel engine community, and they can see some ridiculously high fuel injection pressures. The rail pressure on today’s engines can exceed 30,000 psi. Strong parts built to last. Today’s Diesel engines are built to last, with everything you can see on any high performance vehicles. We run forged rotating assemblies with 4 bolt main and rod caps, and many are cross bolted as well. We use sleeved iron blocks with wet liners. Roller camshafts, roller rockers, double valve springs, 4 valve heads, deep sump oilpans, high volume gear driven pumps, and oil to water coolers. These are all things you can find on a high performance engine, and will be on any large Diesel engine. Like I said, these engines are built as tough, if not tougher, then any race engine around. We need it if we plan to plant 1800 ft lb of torque on the highway and expect it to last 1,000,000 miles. That’s just some facts I can think of.

What is the worst car brand you can buy?

Toyota. Between January 1 and July 13, 2020, a total of ,13,362,759, as in ,MILLION, vehicle units were recalled to garages around the world for technical checks that mainly related to safety flaws. Japanese automaker Toyota issued the most recalls in 2005 (,3.9 million,), well ahead of ,Ford (2.9 million),, and ,Volvo (2.8 million),. A Gallup national survey in late February 2010 found that 31 percent of Americans believed Toyota vehicles were unsafe; the percentage among Toyota owners was only 14 percent, but for non-Toyota owners, the figure shot to 36 percent. In May 2011, Automotive News reported that ,more than 20 million Toyota vehicles had been recalled since autumn 2009,. In 2009, Toyota had 101 problems per 100 vehicles; in 2010, the number of defects increased to 117. Not picking on Toyota, but perhaps the company has been veiling the facts? That is quite shocking since Toyota has carried a terrific reputation for reliability for many years, particularly in the US! Below is a list of the most unreliable cars in Europe, partially by whatacar.com Jaguar E-Pace (2017-present) Reliability rating: 88.4 percent: E-Pace owners reported that one-quarter of their cars had suffered mechanical breakdowns, with the motor and being the worst fiend. There were also non-engine electrical systems, including the a/c, infotainment, brakes, gearbox/clutch, and fuel system issues. Although two-thirds of the afflicted could still be driven, a full one-third sat in a repair shop for more than a week. Despite the warranty, some owners were forced to cough up $1,000 US. BMW X6 (2014-2019): 31 percent were delivered with several concerns, the gearbox being the most typical, followed by the exhaust, infotainment, interior trim, and non-engine electrics. All of these could still be driven, but one in five took more than a week to repair. Vauxhall Insignia Grand Sport (2017-present): A quarter of Insignia owners reported a fault on their car, with the gearbox/clutch causing the most concern. Mercedes C-Class (2014-present): Of executives car aged up to five years old, the C-Class was the lowest-rated for reliability. A third of them have developed problems from a wide range of mechanical issues. One in four cars was off the road for more than a week Nissan Qashqai (2014-2021): 40 percent of this model have problems. The battery and non-engine electrical systems caused the most of them, followed by the brakes, exhaust and interior trim. Most of these could still be driven, but more than a quarter spent a week or longer in the shop. Jaguar XJ (2010-present): 43 percent of XJs had problems, as noted by owners, with the battery and infotainment systems being the most troublesome, followed by bodywork, engine, interior trim, non-engine electrics and suspension. Suzuki Ignis (2016 on): For a company that manufactures some of the best motorcycles in the world, a quarter of the Ignis had issues and nearly half sat in a garage for more than a week. The complaints were with the gearbox/clutch, infotainment/sat-nav, and the suspension. Tesla Model S (2014-present): The S model has been rated as the least dependable electric car. 61 percent of them had significant issues. The most common are bodywork and non-motor electrics, followed by brakes, motor electrics and suspension. Although all of them could still be driven, half were out of action for more than a week. Porsche Panamera (2016-present): 47 percent from this model possessed problems with nearly half of them from the bodywork. Other areas included the a/c, brakes, engine, exhaust and interior trim. All of them could still be driven, and most were fixed in less than one week. Although most repairs fell under warranty, some owners had to pay up to $1,700 US for those repairs. Volkswagen Golf diesel (2013-2020): Diesel Golfs suffered double as many issues as gasoline models, with 36% of them worse. The most common issue is re to bodywork, followed by the battery, engine, infotainment/sat-nav, gearbox/clutch and non-engine electrics. A quarter of the problem models couldn’t be driven and took up to a week to repair. Peugeot 308 (2013-present): A third of the 308s suffered from mechanical distress from the get-go with non-engine electrical issues, including faulty infotainment and sat-nav systems, accounting for 20 percent of complaints, followed by bodywork, interior trim and suspension. Range Rover Evoque (2011-2019): 35 percent broke down in the past year. Most complaints were with the bodywork and brakes, followed by engine and non-engine electrics, a/c, and the motor. Around a quarter of them were undrivable and as many as a third took more than a week to repair. Seat Leon diesel (2013-2020): Nearly half of this model has problems qualifying it as the most unreliable family car. The battery was the biggest fix, followed by the a/a, bodywork, brakes, engine, infotainment/sat-nav and interior trim. A third of cars sold were rendered undrivable within a short time of purchase. Range Rover Sport (2013-present): The Spor model is the least dependable luxury SUV. Owners report that close to one half of their vehicles had gone kaput, a large majority of them with engine issues, followed by bodywork, electrics, brakes and suspension. Land Rover Discovery Sport (2014-2019): The Discovery Sport is the most unreliable large SUV. A whopping half of the models suffered a number of problems in every aspect. Seat Alhambra (2011-2020): A third of their Seat models had problems covering a wide range of components including the a/c, battery, bodywork, brakes, and engine. A quarter of them was not driveable, and over half took longer than a week to repair. Audi A6 (2011-2018): Overall, the owners reported that nearly a quarter of this brand had broken down within the first week. More than half couldn’t be driven and repairs lasted more than a week, and although 40 percent were fixed for free, some owners faced bills of more than $2,000 US. That's why the used A6 is the least dependable luxury car and the most unreliable car in the survey. Most unreliable cars in North America (2020 - 2021): Volvo XC60 Users noted trouble with this Volvo’s in-car electronics, brakes, power equipment, and emissions system. While experts commended it for its advanced safety features and well-organized interior, they also said the vehicle’s controls are a little stiff. Ford EcoSport While the Ford was “surprisingly nimble” on the road, drivers said there were issues with the transmission, as well as with the brakes. Consumer Reports notes that the backseat space is tight and the gas mileage is nothing special. Jeep Wrangler Though its off-road capabilities are impressive, the 2021 Jeep Wrangler is built to excel on trails and only on trails. The Wrangler’s on-road behavior is still not on par with that of a modern SUV, the report warns. Problem spots included steering/suspension and in-car electronics. Tesla Model S For all the company’s hype, it seems the Model S will send you to the auto body shop frequently over repairs to the body system, steering, and in-car electronics. Consumer Reports also predicted issues with the range, especially in the winter. Chevrolet Colorado While the diesel engine of this truck is stellar, Consumer Reports claimed that that also causes it to be pretty noisy. They also said it’s a fairly rough ride, and there were issues with the transmission and in-car electronics too. Volvo XC90 Yes, Volvo again. This one boasted a better score—and a snazzy modern design that wowed Consumer Reports—but its gas mileage, brakes, and steering/suspension left something to be desired. Plus, it’s definitely not worth the nearly $60,000 price tag. There are certainly better car options for less than half of this car’s nearly $60,000 price tag. Jeep Compass The 2021 Jeep Compass was the lowest-rated small SUV that Consumer Reports ranked, because of its awkward seating configuration, engine noise, drive system and transmission issues, and steep price tag for its class. These cars guaranteed to last over 250,000 miles may be more reliable than one with transmission issues like this. Volkswagen Atlas This German model scored low due to its engine minor, emissions, exhaust, and more. More concerning, though, is the five recalls that have already been issued on it, for its backup camera, headlights, and more. Maybe skip this one! You’d likely be better off with what Consumer Reports found to be the best cars of last year based on their reliability. Subaru Ascent Major and minor transmission problems, issues with the electronics, and steering are some of the things you may encounter with this Subaru. Its brakes and climate system were also trouble spots. Voted as the number one worst car in the USA Chevrolet Silverado 1500 Users found this car takes the cake when it comes to unreliable vehicles. Its fuel economy is poor, its transmission is iffy, and Consumer Reports predicted issues with the engine and brakes. And it seems they were onto something—the vehicle’s already had a recall issued for sudden loss of air in the tires. Source: Reader’s Digest The most reliable cars ever made: Mercedes-Benz W124 E-Class (1984–1995) If you listen to the internet, you would believe that all German cars are money pits. The vast majority of that reputation comes from the cost of ownership, and second and third owners deferring on maintenance. Of course, not all German cars are born equal, and the W124 generation stands head and shoulders above the rest. The E-Class is known for going anywhere up to 500,000 miles with just minor repair issues. Nowadays, if you can find one with just 100,000 miles on the clock and all its maintenance records, the 4.2-liter V8 has only just been broken in. Just remember, luxury cars cost luxury money for routine maintenance. Toyota 4Runner (2010 - 2021) If you want something newer, and even off the dealer's lot, you can't go wrong with a Toyota 4Runner for longevity. The current generation has been in production since 2010, so it's a proven platform, although not the cushiest and most tech-laden SUV on the market. If anything, it's low-tech level can only help in the long term as there's less to go wrong. The 4Runner's 4.0-liter V6 is a relentless little workhorse making 270 hp and 278 lb-ft of torque sent to the dirt via an uncomplicated 5-speed automatic transmission. Mazda MX-5 (1995 - 2021) When it comes to the MX-5, just pick a generation and go with it. It's the little sports car than can, and seemingly forever. We've seen examples that have been beaten on through three or four owners and keep going well over 200,000 miles with little complaint. Part of that is down to maintenance being cheap, and the rest is down to the MX-5 being so well built in the first place. Initial reports on the 2020 MX-5 model are looking good, and we see no reason to doubt that this generation won't keep on going like every other model since 1995. Toyota Camry (2000 - 2021) The Camry has achieved legendary status for its dogged reliability. Anecdotally, we have neighbors with his and hers 2004 models showing over 250,000 miles on one and 300,000 on the other. They only change the oil when one of them remembers it has been a while. There's also a high chance that you'll see an old nondescript Camry today if you live somewhere busy. Consumer Reports has had the Camry's reliability ratings at the top of its charts since the early 2000s, but this generation is still new. It's unlikely Toyota isn't going to be anything but careful to keep building on the Camry's reputation, though. Honda Civic (1991 - Present) The only reason the Honda Accord isn't on this list is that the Camry has a bigger reputation. The Civic has built its reputation for frugal reliability since 1972. However, talk to a connoisseur, and they will likely point you to the fifth generation built from 1991-1994 for longevity. At 150,000 miles, the engine is only just broken in, and It had an EPA fuel economy rating of 44 mpg in the city and 51 mpg on the highway, although horsepower was only 70 to 125. The Si version was available in the US with all the glory of its single-overhead camshaft and VTEC power. The Civic is still noted for its longevity, and the fact you see so many around who's first owners learned to drive in them is a testament to that. Volvo 700 and 900 Series (The Volvo 900 Series is a range of executive cars produced from 1990 to 1998. The 900 Series was introduced in 1990 to replace the 700 Series from which it derived.) In reality, any rear-wheel-drive Volvo deserves to be on this list. The 700 series is probably the most easily identifiable as you'll still see them on the road today. Not just as old beaters, but as tuner cars as the chassis are ridiculously stout and the engine bays so convenient for engine swaps. Volvo didn't use to care about being sleek or fashionable and just built the most solid, safe, and dependable cars it could. Going back in time, there's a 1966 Volvo P1800 in the Guinness Book Of World Records. It was owned by Irv Gordon and hit 3.2 million miles on the odometer before he died. Lexus LS 400 (1999 - 1994?) The very first Lexus has a legendary status for reliability. When Toyota sent its luxury brand out of the gate, it did so after a long development period and a massive budget. The result was a V8-powered sedan that intruded on Mercedes and BMW's hallowed ground. Recently, auto journalist Matt Farah got his Lexus LS 400 up to one million miles by loaning it out to friends and other auto scribes. However, the Japanese luxury sedan does have a few common issues that can crop up. One is an exhaust leak that isn't a big deal, but if the starter motor starts to fail, that means there's an expensive visit to the shop coming up. The part isn't expensive, but it's buried in the V of the V8 under the intake and fuel injection components, and labor costs will mount up. Toyota Corolla (1999 - Present) The Toyota Corolla matches its larger Camry counterpart for dependability. It's one of the best selling cars in the world and reached its reliability peak in the 2000s. From 1999, Toyota's 1.8-liter engine was a mainstay in the Corolla and remained in the Japanese automaker's range for 20 years. The engine has its own reputation for reliability but helped make generation nine, ten, and eleven of the Corolla as close to indestructible as a car can get. Saab 900 (1978 - 1998) While college professors favored the Volvo 740 at the end of the last century, the Saab 900 was the choice of yuppies that didn't want a BMW. Like Volvo's cars, Saab built its cars to last and if you see a Saab on the road, then chances are high that it's in excellent condition. There's a 1989 Saab 900 SPG that was donated with over a million miles registered in the Wisconsin Automotive Museum. Anecdotally, there's a 1983 900 Turbo in Maine that's reportedly driven across the country twice a year. It was last seen with over 400,000 miles on the odometer without much more than regular maintenance. It's just a shame Saab itself didn't last so long.

Januar 1943 - 10 Jahre nationalsozialistische Aufbauarbeit UBz: Blick auf eine Autobahn, auf der eine andere Errungenschaft des Nationalsozialismus, der deutsche Volkswagen, fährt. Atlantic, 19.1.43 /C. /Scha. E.M.) The original Volkswagen Beetle is still a common sight in some parts of the world. The main reason is that when one of the few parts on a Beetle does eventually fail, it's easy to fix. While it went out of production in most of the world in 1978, it carried on in Brazil and Mexico. The last one of a 30,000 unit batch rolled out of Puebla, Mexico, in July 2003 as a 2004 model year vehicle. Even in worst-case scenarios, a good home mechanic can pull the air-cooled engine out of the back in an hour, and an experienced shop in as little as 20 minutes.
