    Every day I get into my car and every fucking day, I hate the retarded motherfucker (me) who got talked into signing the contract for this piece of shit.

    Every goddamn month, this unreliable hunk of metal takes six hundred bucks out of my paycheck. For what? Cheap plastics and a car that's like playing roulette every cold morning. Just so I could drive something different from all the plebes.

    I oughtta get my head checked.

    Don't get me wrong, when the car is actually running, it's a joy to take out on the mountain twisties and hear the tire squeal, but half the time, the fucker aint actually running.

    Which car have you bought or leased where you've thought, "I am never doing this shit again."

    G37 Coupe.

    I wanted one for a while, and I suppose the test drive was a bit too short.

    Ended up hating it.

    - Transmission felt like it was straight from a Frontier
    - Seating position only made sense if you were 5'2
    - Gas mileage was awful even if you drove like a grandma
    - The car felt bigger than it was

    Overall, out of the 11 cars I've had in my life, it's the most hated.

    2001 passat, bought in 2010 for $3000. It`s had electrical issues with the door lock system (cost $800 to fix), and I personally replaced both front axles as the cv joints were busted since it has god awful turning radius. The airbag light is stuck on and now it needs a new water pump since the stock one is a cheap piece of plastic shit. With all the overheating it now may need a new head gasket, imma do a compression test to be sure.

    Suffice to say I`m never buying a piece of crap vw again. That whole `german engineering' thing is marketing bs. My mom has a tacoma from the same year that has over 200k miles and hasn`t needed any repairs ever

    My very first car that I purchased myself (2005 Chrysler Sebring) broke down on the way home from the dealership.

    I spent $1000s of dollars in repairs in the few short years I owned the car before the wheel well broke.

    I was starting grad school the next week and was desperate for a car. I basically bought the car on impulse with no research what so ever. My mistake.

    lol. I thought I'd hold off on mentioning it till later in the thread, but my daily driver is this, right down to the stripes:

    Only I've got black rims.

    This is (hopefully) the last time I choose style over substance. :(

    I have had good luck so far(knock on wood) with vehicles. Aside, from a POS Pontiac Sunbird back in the day. Didn't buy it myself though.

    That said, I've never really bought a vehicle I liked or really enjoyed. Always have gone the safe route and got a reliable daily driver. Really want a Jeep wrangler though.

    First car was a Chevy Corsica. The paint peels off of them after a few years. Mine wasn't this bad, but it's common to see this on any older Corsica models driving around.

    2000 infiniti g20 for me. Turning radius was garbage and the cup holder was useless. Other than that it was pretty quick, reliable and got good mpg.

    I had to pay for two new transmissions, and the headgasket blew at 128,000 miles. Junked the car and never looked back.

    Jeep Compass one of the first years they came out. Was a terrible car. I live in country in Upstate NY and it was fwd. Two wheeling bearings went, cost 1000 to replace. Traded in that junk in 2011 for cherokee.
