is it exactly safe to drive without a singular lug nut? it’s got 5 lugs
If its just missing one, it should probably be fine for a little while if you take it easy. I would get it fixed though. The previous owner snapped a wheel stud off of the Suburban and it hasn't had any problems. So on the rear right wheel it has 5 lugs instead of 6.
I would strongly advise against it. This is a business where manufacturers haggle about the 4th digit behind the comma.... if it has 5 lugs... it needs 5 lugs.
A coworker of mine lost a tire at 160 km/h.... he assured me it is not a fun experience..... not that you would expect several rollovers and cheating death by probably centimeters at most being fun in the first place.
Yeah, for sure don't go high speeds. It should be fine to get to the mechanic shop or auto parts store as long as you treat it like you would a spare tire.
Yeah, I've been on the interstate with this thing and the local mechanic told me "it'll be fine" after he showed me the missing lug nut.
In a Reddit discussion I decided to tackle the claim that in the days of simpler cars like the boxy Volvos, W123/4 MBs and old Lexuses reliability was better.
So, here goes...
In the 1951-1991 period of Popular Mechanics owner surveys, the most reliable car was the Lexus LS400, which had 10% of owners reporting failures in that ~1 year.
Now, when What Car asked about the same metric last year, all kinds of cars ended up beating the LS400 - Suzuki Celerio, Skoda Rapid (which had a twice-as-good score), Toyota Auris, Kia Soul (literally none broke down), Mini Countryman (once again, twice as good score), Suzuki Vitara, Kia Sportage, Toyota RAV4 (twice as good), Lexus CT and Toyota Yaris Hybrid (both trouble-free), Lexus NX (three times as good), and even the BMW M4 and Mazda MX-5.
On the topic of old Volvos' reliability...
Someone cut me off on the expressway today... Anyone got a hemi jeep for sale? Mine's totalled...
I am sorry to hear that and hope that you did not get injured.
No, not me. Sorry. I hope you can find one, though.
I'm all right, just shaken up. Mental toll is certainly worse than the physical. Not sure how I'll afford a new car, my '05 wasn't even worth the insurance deductible, but I absolutely adored that thing. Too bad the brakes weren't good enough today.
Cops said the car on the expressway doesn't exist and they don't believe my story, even though that car was clearly on my dashcam.
Doesn't it feel like cops have absolutely sucked lately?
Glad you are ok. You can probably get an attorney and/or go after the other car's insurance company. Not sure how it works exactly cause I have never been in an accident (and hopefully never will be) but I would talk to your insurance agent and find out what you can do. If you want help looking for a donor car or another Jeep then maybe we can help search craigslist and facebook.
Well I oversimplified "I got cut off" for the sake of not writing an essay. There was a guy stopped in the interstate and a bunch of us had to stop short, it was really messy and involved a lot of cars. As far as the insurance company is concerned, this is between me and the guy I directly hit, not anyone else involved (including the guy that was stopped in the middle of the road that started the chain reaction). So, no point in dragging this out with them, especially over a 2005 Chrysler.
Concerning my replacement car, right now my dad's gonna drive me to work until I can save up for something, my cousin has a brand new Jeep that he doesn't want and will give me for a so far undetermined price. Only problem is that it's 600 miles from me...
At least you seem to have a few options and a plan worked out. I hope you find something.
1/4 open wheel jeep. I really did love this car...
So, uh... I found another 2005 WK but this one has low miles and the hemi (mine had the 4.7), and it's only 3700...
I want it...
Went for a brief drive and hang out in the endless fog we've been having lately.
The problem is most newer cars are only reliable as long as the electrics work fine if they die its game over for them
And the old cars were OK for the short time before engine wear or rust got to them.
In other news, I managed to find a June 1981 Polish car price guide.
First column is model name, second is new price in PLN, third is new price in USD, and the next are the values by year.
As you can see, a car would appreciate as soon as it went off the lot, due to car shortages.
(Yes, @Youngtimer, Zastava cars and the Fiat 132 are there).
Made a slight miscalculation here and put the Soul in the cabbage.
