-s/c coupler...that and the fluid hasn't been changed in 4 years. I've had a ZZP one/GM fluid in my possession for a couple years now.
-misc trim that is deciding to crack and break, CD drive in the radio freaks out on occasion, and sometimes the key doesn't come outta the ignition until I can get the shifter to click.

Actual bad things:
-needs struts like a year ago.
-Front rotors are just beginning to warp after 2+ years of awesome life. Need to do that before winter hits.
-needs front sway bar bushings and driver's side LCA.

Good stuff. Still need all of this

Man why did I never see this thread? My in laws seem to have a habit of driving their fucking cars till they have a backing plate for a pad go in the hat of the rotor. Ended up dropping calipers on 2 of their vehicles. I had one where the fucking piston fell out when I was removing it.

my GF's car... 1998 Honda Civic, Odometer has 237K but has said that for a few years now because the spedo doesn't work either.. lol. Oil changes?? bahh.. the blown head gasket slowly slowly fills the cooling system with oil so we just drain the oil out of the coolant tank and top it off with used oil from the Mustang and Camaro. I change the oil filter once every 6 months. Oil has never been changed since she bought it. we literally never fix anything on it if it costs money. Honestly I don't know how the car keeps going.

yeah there will be no oil changes.. just keep the fluids topped off and empty the coolant tank which looks like this most of the time... Actually if I didn't get a random box of oil filters for honda's at a garage sale last year for $5 I'd not even be changing filters on it.. lol.



Drive it until it blows up!

That's what happened when I changed the oil on a camry.

The car leaked oil at the rear main seal, about 2 qts a month. I made it a habit of adding a quart on the 1st and 15th. And did that for 2 years. One day I bought like clearance oil for $1/qt, I got 50qts. So with 50 I figured I'll do a nice oil change. Boom 2 week later the motor kicks the can.

This is my right rear tire

I chose not to rotate my yokohama s drive directionals on the fiesta . Still got 30k out of them . Fronts I'm still running . For whatever reason on the fiesta , it eats up rear tires. I don't know if it's from the - camber from the height I ride at , the lightweight back end , the no rotate , or a combination of all. Both sets of tires I have ran so far have literally eaten the rear tires twice as fast as the front .

The final month or two on this tire the belt shifted . I believe it's from driving on such low tread . Anyways , once it happened I got lots of road noise . And it quickly ate up the rest of the tire the last week . You can kind of see the belt shift . Actually the worst shift I've ever seen , it's hard to get a picture of the huge cupping and belt shift . I do not blame the tire though . Very good tire in my opinion .

It's weird how a tire can wear like it is . If you look on the left side you can see the huge wear marks on the edge of the tire . Yet a few inches above it you can still see one tread rib untouched.

This is what a new tire looks like . You can kind of see the belt shift and large cupped flat spots it made on the tire in the last picture.

It looks like this is from a bit ago, but what would cause this? Failing caliper?

Looks like the pad material cracked down the center , then broke off on one side . Probably couldn't take the heat.
