I’ve put about $6k in to my $2500 car, but it now has a new transmission, fully refreshed front end suspension, overhauled cooling system, new timing chain guides and both camshaft variable valve timing units have been rebuilt, along with all the minor maintenance things taken care of as well (fuel filter, o2 sensors, fan clutch, a/c, etc). All parts used are oem or better. It’s at 200k and should easily go another 200 from here on out with no foreseeable major problems in the future.
I do all my own work though, so i know it’s an exception rather than rule, but it is doable to have a basically new car for ~$8500
had Champ for about a month. i know its supposed to be a chick car but coming from a yaris then 2 corollas im pretty much a lost cause
This^Meh on the Jetta being a girls car. That's an outdated way of thinking about a Jetta.
Nice car. Drive that shyt proudly. That Nardo Grey'ish color looks good on it
