ok, i will be the first one.

I have a KIA K3, dark cherry, just a half of year old. No repair till now, but car paint is waiting for repair. However, i got to know the color of White about the same car brand and model that is easier to be broken.

'02 VW Golf- 13 years old and 132,000 miles on it.

I wish it was a GTI but it's still a great car. 5 speed manual, fun to drive. So far all I've had to do is replace all the belts, none of them failed, but I just didn't like the look of them, so I figured it was time. Right now I'm considering (and dreading) doing the ball joints. They look a bit worn, no surprise considering my hard driving style. That's about it, my Golf has been good to me for the 3 years I've had it. Also, surprisingly good in snow.

Golf series are considered to be the best sellers among VW other series and have seven-gen till now. Yes, it is relly a good car. A good car condition is based on drivers' style and car maintenance, i think. Well, so, it is smart for you to check or replace the auto parts in time. Good luck.
Many thanks for you to share your car information!

Hi. I love Lotus. To be honest, i just know the brand but it is with a long history. How many seconds does your V8 speed up to 100km/h?

Wow! Fantastic! You have really good cars and maintained them well. I like people who really care about cars like you. I like Mercedes Benz GLK 350 4Matic and 1948 Chevrolet Fleetmaster. One of my friend had 1948 Chevrolet Fleetmaster but he sold it many years ago.

4 seconds or so. Installed an intercooler kit and upped the turbocharger boost--so who knows?

Thanks, oh,, runfaster...
For famous main brands, such as AUDI and BMW, whose repairs commonly are very expensive. Did you have repair in 4S stores or outside? I do not know the situation of your country, but in China, for most of repairs and mantainance have to be made in 4S stores, of course for new cars, and the price will be much higher than outsides, but owners have no choice and have to bear the cost.:frown:

My personal vehicle is a 2015 Mustang, yes it is a V6 but I still enjoy it and save a lot of money on insurance since I am younger.
Both the lower and upper control arms and steering rack were replaced about 4 months after owning it.
After I would make a left turn my steering wheel wouldn't return to center and would "stick" at about 45 degrees. There for, I would have to manually turn it back to center.

I have a 1989 chevy astro van with 117k miles. I also have a 2005 mitsubishi lancer with 110k miles. The van i have i bought for $500. Running and drives. It does need little work to it but nothing i cant tackle. The Lancer i paid $200 for it it also runs and drives great. The only thing wrong with it is the thing looks like a golf ball. So many dints in it. And the infamous hanging front bumper.
