• How often would a $500 used car break down?

    Best answer: Since we cannot see the car to evaluate it then we can't give you much good advice. Everything depends on condition, how it has been driven and how it has been cared for, but it is unlikely that a $500 car would be worth buying. Repairs costs can pile up quickly.

    Best answer: Since we cannot see the car to evaluate it then we can't give you much good advice. Everything depends on condition, how it has been driven and how it has been cared for, but it is unlikely that a $500 car would be worth buying. Repairs costs can pile up quickly. A new set of tires alone can cost as much as the car. So can new brakes or a pair of CV joints. A new or rebuilt transmission can cost 2-3 times as much as the car, and the list goes on and on. If you don't have any tools or repair experience knowledge to fix things yourself, then I'd certainly advise against it.

    And don't forget about insurance. I can pretty much guarantee that if you can't afford more than $500 for a car then you cannot afford insurance for it either. You definitely cannot afford the fines if you were to get stopped and couldn't provide proof of insurance. Get in an accident without insurance and you'll probably feel like ending your life. Sorry kid, but it's a bad idea to waste your money. Buy a motor scooter, use public transport or get a decent bicycle,

  • Can I buy a car with bad credit?

    I’ve failed my road test twice and I am so disappointed in myself. I’m already 23 and I don’t have my license and decided to try get it so I can have car and be able to be more independent but I guess I’m just not meant to drive. My brother whose 26 is teaching me and I’ve been driving with him for a whole month and still could not pass. He’s had his license since he was 18 or 19 and has only been in one very minor incident so he’s a great driver and I just feel like I’m wasting both mine and his time. I know anyone else would have passed the first time with all the driving I’ve done with him. I really thought I was gonna pass the 2nd try but I had so much confidence until I made my first mistake and then my heart started beating so fast and I was just a nervous wreck and made some more errors. I don’t understand why am I such a failure in everything I do. Both my brother and sister got their license the first attempt with less driving practice and here I am failing . We even went an easier testing place the second time and I still managed to fail. I just wonder what my brother would say if I tell him To just stop trying to help me because I’m not cut out for driving out for since I can’t even do well on a simple test.

  • Will driving a car become illegal?

    I’ve read a lot about the self driving car thing and all the car companies are very optimistic about it obviously. But will society actually allow this? Will driving a car manually become illegal? How long until this happens? Will hacking self driving cars become a thing?

  • Is there a way to declare abandoned cars?

    If you see a car that has remained someplace public, or someplace that isn't a house (side of a road, or in a parking lot) for a year plus, and has not been moved or anything to the point when dust is accumulating on it.

    If you see a car that has remained someplace public, or someplace that isn't a house (side of a road, or in a parking lot) for a year plus, and has not been moved or anything to the point when dust is accumulating on it. Is there a way to claim the car? I'm asking because at my apartment in the visitor parking spots there are 3 cars that have been sitting for a year plus. 1 doesn't have a tag, another does, and the last one has a test drive tag on it. These cars seem to be in a visibly good condition. Is there a way I can claim these cars. If so how?

  • What's it like to get hit by a supercar at full speed?

    Now this is probably a brutal question. What's it like to get hit by a supercar when it's travelling at it's maximum speed? It usually depends on the car's top speed and the car's weight but any supercar/hypercar can go well over 200 mph. And they're mostly over 1 tonne in weight. Take... show more
    Now this is probably a brutal question. What's it like to get hit by a supercar when it's travelling at it's maximum speed? It usually depends on the car's top speed and the car's weight but any supercar/hypercar can go well over 200 mph. And they're mostly over 1 tonne in weight. Take for example the Bugatti Veyron SS, which has a top speed of 268 MPH and weighs almost 2 tonnes. Can you imagine getting hit by that when it's travelling at it's maximum speed? Well believe me, it's not pretty. In-fact that amount of force could splatter you! Also how much force does THAT deliver?

  • How do you stay still at traffic lights with your automatic car?

  • Which car should i get? Need opinions.?

    I couldn't decide on which car to get and needed some opinions on which car you think is better. I wasn't sure between the 2017 honda accord touring or the 2017 acura tlx? I love both of them and have no clue which one to choose.

    Best answer: Park the car on a flat surface in a parking lot. With the parking brake applied, put the transmission in first gear. Slowly let the clutch out until you hear the engine slowing down. Push the clutch in and put the transmission in second gear. Repeat the slow letting out of the clutch. Move through all the gears with this exercise. When comfortable, release that parking brake during the first gear run-through. This helps you get a feel for the whole thing.
