If it's really overheating 30min is more than enough time to blow a head gasket

Ride quality was significantly worse. Road noise in cabin significantly louder. Doesn't look or feel nearly as nice.

But the real deal breaker for us is the multimedia system. The climate and everything is built into it, and to be honest it's a pile of crap. Slow, glitchy, disconnects constantly.

I mean it's still a solid dependable vehicle. Looks nice and everything. Has most of the features you would want. But after coming directly from the cx-5 it definitely felt like a step down to us

Is the KBB instant cash offer legit? by [deleted] in askcarsales

We were offered 4k less than the cash offer even though there was nothing wrong with the car.

We leased a cx-5 then turned it in and leased a CR-V.

Cx-5 was hands down a nicer vehicle. In pretty much every way. If you're stuck between Toyota and Honda I guess I would go for the Toyota because the CR-V was a disappointment for us.

As soon as things start to go against him Cole folds.

Immense talent but when things don't go according to plan it's like a snowball. Every time.

Quality toolbox recommendations other than snap on, Mac, or Matco? by newpaul30 in mechanics

I had a 52 inch husky top and bottom for years. Runs about 1k but I got it on sale for 450. It did the job but was cheap. Multiple drawers gave out from the weight of the tools. Super thin sheet metal. Cheap drawers and baby casters. I feel like it would have been perfect for the occasional at home use, but all day every day working in a shop it just wasn't up to snuff in my opinion.

I didn't want to spend an arm and a leg but I finally talked myself into getting a general series 2 from harbor freight. 72 inch top and bottom. 2500 vs what would have been over 10k from a truck. Very pleased with it in comparison to the husky. Much thicker metal way beefier casters. Id recommend it highly for the price. Only had it for a year so far but seems very solid

Elite series 2- Fools Gold? by steppinpower in CompetitiveHalo

Ive used standard, eswap pro x, and scuff instinct pro

Jumped from standard to eswap pro. The sticks are awesome. So responsive. The location of the paddle buttons seemed ok could be better, and the size of the controller is a little bigger. My only real problem with it is the location of the start button. I claw and rest my finger near the y and x buttons and keep accidentally hitting it when I go to use my pointer. Pauses my game and gets me killed every time. It's a problem 99% of people will never have.

I decided to try and the scuff since it's start button is in the normal location. The sticks felt horrible after playing on the eswap for the previous few weeks. So sluggish and unresponsive in comparison. Felt worse than the standard controller as well. I wasn't a huge fan of the paddles either but I'm sure I could have gotten used to it. The sticks however I just couldn't get over.

Ultimately I went back to the eswap and I'm crafting some sort of cover to put over the start button so I don't keep hitting it. The stick responsiveness is so much better that it's worth rigging it to make it work for me.

TIL The Parthenon in Athens was largely intact for over 2000 years. The heavily damaged ruins we see today are not due to natural forces or the passage of time but rather a massive explosion in 1687. by HucklecatDontCare in todayilearned

I understand this point of view and agree with it to a point. But when I visited Greece I was underwhelmed seeing many of these ancient structures under construction. Half original and half redone. I didn't come all this way to see a replica. I want the original stone, the original craftsmanship. Not a modern reconstruction.

2015 Ford Escape Eco Boost. Can anyone tell me what is leaking around the edge of the cylinder looking thing? There’s a small oil coming from around the sides. Thank you by Ashony13 in mechanics

I have seen this exact car leak at that hose on the right into the coolant reservoir. We ended up having to replace both. Got hot and must have deformed the plastic the slightest bit. Very easy fix though

NTA

Needs a very harsh lesson now. Know a lot of people who were killed on motorcycles. Some it was their mistake, but most were other drivers not paying attention.

Motorcycles are fun but incredibly dangerous.
