Good evening Scotty! My father is offering me 400 for a 1995 Nissan Altima 4cyl with 111,068 miles. It is in fair condition (cosmetically) but every thing else is fine. It drives great too! Is this a great buy or should I stay away?

Hi Scotty! You’re my favorite youtube car guy!!!! I have a 2003 Honda Accord EX V6. I had only 2 occurrences in the few months where after putting in gas my car hesitated to start. — I have an AEM cold air intake, cleaned the throttle body, has a new battery (that I have a subwoofer wire connected to), & fairly new spark plugs. Why do you think it does this? Should I change the Fuel Pump? I have no fuel filter to change, just the fuel strainer...

Hey Scotty,

gotta 2017 Malibu having key fob issues and “remote not detected” warning. I know this is common but I can’t find anyone online that fixed it. The dealership cant fix it and my 2 year warranty just ended. Ive tried replacing the fob and battery. Issue happens intermittently.

Thanks!

Hey Scotty I just replaced my rotors and pads on the front of my 2014 Hyundai Sonata 2.0T. I can hear a grinding sound when I release the brake pedal whenI’m at a full stop and sometimes when I press it, I’m not sure what it is.

Thanks Scotty

Hey Scotty, got a 2008 Lexus LS460L, been having a problem when trying to floor the throttle , the car doesn’t transmit the torque gently and it shakes hard. Also, if i lift my foot off the pedal , the rpm doesn’t drop smoothly, it will drop to 3k rpm and stops there for a second , then drop to 2k and stops there again then drops to zero. What could be the source of this problem?

Hi ya doing Scotty Is buying the 2020 toyota RAV4 Worth it since on average its only $800 more?

With the release of the 2020 (2019) Toyota Rav4 hybrid only costing around $800 than it's similar gas counterpart. over 10 years you can save $4200+. (using a hybrid brake even calculator) Even if the battery didn't last after the warranty you would have saved up enough to get a new one. and still break even.

Hey scotty,

what’re your thoughts on bmw motorcycles? are they as unreliable as the cars? what’s your opinion on a very cheap motorcycle that’ll have low maintenance? looking for my first bike.

Thanks

Jack12345

hey scotty,

what’re your thoughts on a 07 prius with 92k miles for $3.4k? Its 1 owner and the only issue is fuel gauge light sometimes not working. seems like a good deal but should I worry about the hybrid battery going bad?

also looking at a 94 miata, manual, 76k miles, one owner, seems very well maintained, for $3.2k.

would either one make a cheap daily that I wouldn’t have to worry about breaking down?

thanks!

Hey Scotty, my mother has a Ford expedition and she wants to know why does her SUV slow down when going on inclines (highway inclines) could it be a dirty fuel injector or what can it be? Thanks for the help!

Hey Scotty,

curious about your thoughts. what would you say is the most affordable and reliable exotic/supercar, not counting purchase price. what supercar could you daily drive and expect to last if you drive it modestly. I’m thinking maybe Lotus Evora 400, Ford GT, Shelby GT500, Acura NSX, a McLaren, AMG GTR/S63 or maybe even Noble M600.

Just really curious on your thoughts.

Thanks!

Hey Scotty, what do you think of a 2020 Toyota Corolla XSE Cvt automatic for a first high school car, or should I go for a 2014-17 Corolla S cvt automatic I’m looking for reliability and a good ride and looks

hey scotty,

went to mechanic for tpms light on 2011 accord. gave me a quote for $900 for the sensor, anti seize, 2 hubs, outer & inner bearings, wheel seals, and brake clean.

should I trust that I actually need all of this or should I only get the tpms sensor changed? if just the sensor, should I just try to change it myself?

Or, is all of this work unnecessary? If so, I'd rather put the money towards fixing the vtc actuator to get rid of the cold-start rattle.

thanks!

Hello scotty, I was looking at a 2003 Ford expedition 4.6 v8 with 152900 miles. It burns oil. Not too much though. For 2500 is it a deal or should I look elsewhere?

hey scotty,

found a dealer selling a 06 civic hybrid with 135k for $2400. clean title and seems good. i know the big thing with those is the hybrid battery so i was wondering if there is any way to test it. i dont want to put any money into it other than regular maintenance and want it to last a few years through college.

thanks

Hey Scotty, sorry if i ask so many questions, hope this doesnt annoy you But my car, 2003 Micra 1.5 dci, recently started to rev to 1000 or 1200 rpm, one case even to 1700 rpm, when my car was standing still, better said when i slow down than it stays at those higher rpm's, ideling sometimes when i push the accelerator a bit, in neutral, it goes back to normal, to 900 rpm Why does this happen and is there a fix? execpt selling the car, which i will probably do i think in leasing a 2016 toyota avensis 2.0D, but i was also thinking in buying it later if i like the car and it holds up well, if you dont mind i can give you the details about the car in a respond after you answer.

Good morning scotty, one of my friends drives this Ford explorer 2006 around with a rebuilt transmission. It jolts at 3rd to 4th gear. He told me that he got it fixed for 1600. Do you think the transmission is gonna hold up?
