One time last winter, we had an ice storm (I live on a "mountain" and we get some bizzare weather as compared to the rest of my town) and my whole road was literally an ice rink. there was about 2 inches of ice between the road surface, and anything with 4 wheels. My dad came home from work, came over the hill, and the car started to slide and lose grip a bit, but it corrected itself, and he got in the driveway safetly.

-2 minutes later I saw our neighbor skid into the sidewalk, then spend a half hour trying to get up his driveway.

-A pontiac aztec tapped the brakes at the top of the hill and spiralled the whole way down the road, I have no idea what happened to it.

-the only other person I saw conquer the road that night was my gf's dad. He came to pick her up because she couldnt get out of our driveway with her beetle cause of the ice. He came in his 6 speed Passat wagon 2.0T and picked her up. He went to the bottom of the hill, turned around in the cul de sac, and beasted it all the way up my road in one smooth, slow, fluid shot, and got home safe. german engineering ftmfw.
Yeah the only problem my dad had with the car is that the gas level sensors kept breaking and his guage didnt work at all. He didnt notice it and ran out of gas twice. He took it to them 3 times and they didnt fix it.. I told him to claim it was a lemon and stuff but he sold it to carmax and got the BMW

haha, i just got my dad to co-sign on my gti so i could get the 0% apr, screw paying more than i need to. other than that the gti is all my $$. my parents aren't big on cars/driving, so my dad drives an 07 honda CR-V and mom has an 04 acura TSX. my dad had an acura mdx before, but sold it because they didn't need anything that big.

So now you're just saying they can afford to throw money away or are attempting to look like they have more money than they do.
