    I agree with you guys for the most part. I think it needs to be a lot closer to $4k to be a good deal. Not sure I can talk him down $800 though. Maybe it isn’t worth the hassle.

    My mistake, it’s a rebuilt title car. In Minnesota that means it’s been inspected by the state after being fixed. I may be limited to only liability insurance on it but I know I can insure it without...

    I'm not following the logic of how you're out money. You pay for car A, insure it for value A and expect value B (higher) when it's totaled. It sounds to me like you got a good deal on a car that...

    Just to clarify a bit, I'm not stating that factually the spark is a better vehicle than the mirage. More that it has some superior features that mean something to me. I really like both cars which...

    A little clicking around wikipedia and i cant say you're wrong. The lineage is a little convoluted. There seems to be no more daewoo matiz once the spark started in 2012.

    I think some people are confusing the spark and the aveo. The spark in the US was never affiliated with daewoo. Also the gen 1 and gen 2 cars really have nothing in common.

    Interesting seeing analysis from a car running 5w30 and 0w20 side by side. It seems like the 5w30 is providing no more protection than the 0w20 (contrary to many people thoughts). Granted there are...

    From what I've heard those stainless lifetime filters are really just rock catchers. The filtering efficiency is supposed to be terrible. It really makes sense as its just overlapping stainless mesh.
