Subaru used 3G modems in its cars for their starlink system

3G is kill, in USA

so the modem tries to call home and fails. infinitely. this drains the car's battery. there have been multiple recalls about this and it is comically bad for Subaru.

new phones are 5G, which gives you brain-aids and butt-cancer, but before that was 4G, which replaced 3G, so this really is the fault of the government trying to activate the covid-19 vaccine KILL SHOT with 5G radiation, if you think about it.

Actual serious commentary and proofs are in the autopian writeup.

Airport transfers are more cost effective than taxis by Saynnm in cars

[–]EsterVacero 1 insightful - 1 fun1 insightful - 0 fun2 insightful - 1 fun -  (0 children)

When it comes to getting from point A to point B, we all want a hassle-free and cost-effective solution. While taxis have long been the go-to option, there's a modern alternative that's making waves - InDrive. Unlike traditional taxis, InDrive offers a unique people-to-people model that brings back the feeling of control and fairness in every ride.

One of the standout advantages of InDrive is its transparent terms. There are no hidden algorithms or price manipulation. Drivers have the freedom to see the exact route before accepting a ride, and passengers can choose their preferred driver. This level of transparency is like having a clear roadmap for your journey, ensuring you're always in the driver's seat.

Speaking of fairness, InDrive takes cost-effectiveness to the next level. Their people-to-people model allows users to agree on a price that satisfies both passengers and drivers. It's a win-win situation, making your journey not only economical but also equitable.

Direct payments are another feather in InDrive's cap. Passengers pay drivers directly, reducing costs and maintaining lower fares. This streamlined approach ensures that your hard-earned money goes where it belongs - to the driver who provided you with a safe and comfortable ride.

InDrive's reach is impressive. It operates in bustling metropolitan areas with stiff competition and even in small villages with limited internet access and no maps. Their adaptability knows no bounds, making them a go-to choice for people worldwide. The app's popularity is skyrocketing, thanks to their unique people-to-people model and Human Driven approach.

So, the next time you're considering a taxi or a modern alternative with fair prices, think InDrive. It's not just a better alternative to a taxi; it's your ticket to a cost-effective, transparent, and user-driven ride experience. Explore InDrive for yourself at https://indrive.com/locations/en/aus/brisbane, and take control of your journey like never before.

What is the point of stating the obvious? Is the plan to stay on gasoline for longer? Burning fuels is bad for the environment and that alone is enough reason to stop with it. (If the mining isn't environmentally friendly, that too can be solved.)

If humanity had something even close to a brain, it would just build the charging infrastructure into the road such that you would never have to think about charging in the first place. This would make the cars much lighter and thus more energy efficient. A battery with a range of 50km would already be ridiculously overpowered, which means that we could have switched to EVs a few decades ago. This also works wonders for law enforcement, because a criminal literally wouldn't be able to escape because of range anxiety problems (you would just turn off the charging grid along the path of the criminal).

In short, there is no real problem, because if there is a real problem the government would just allocate 5,000 scientists/engineers/technicians on the problem like in the Manhattan Project.

Designing a modular unit that could be placed under or over roads doesn't even require a fucking PhD; it just requires the government to mandate every car maker to support that technology and a financial structure to incentivize people to build such invisible chargers. Additionally, a design could probably be made that would sit in the space of where battery packs are in old EV designs such that they can be cheaply upgraded to work with such more advanced infrastructure.

[–]zyxzevn[S] 4 insightful - 3 fun4 insightful - 2 fun5 insightful - 3 fun -  (0 children)

From the article:

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration published a "Do Not Drive" warning for 90,000 BMW vehicles built between 2000 and 2006 with Takata airbags, telling owners to immediately park sedans and SUVs due to an increasing threat the airbags might explode.

"These vehicles are 17 to 22 years old, and the risk to vehicle occupants is dire. These are some of the oldest Takata airbags under recall and have an extremely high probability of failure during a crash. If the inflators rupture, the metal fragments ejected toward the driver's face could kill or leave them with devastating, life-altering injuries," NHTSA wrote.

The warning covers the 2000-2006 BMW 3 Series (E46), including M3, 2000-2003 5 Series (E39), including M5, and 2000-2004 X5s (E53) equipped with faulty Takata airbags.

In other words both trucks had to sit charging for almost as long as they were driving. This also does not account for initial charge, meaning the trucks actually had to charge for nearly twice as long as they were driven.

Anyone who thinks this is acceptable is fucking retarded. Especially when it comes to commercial trucks which drive cross country.

Yes, there are times when a transfer is actually more profitable. I remember a taxi driver refusing to drive my dog, but that doesn't happen with transfer services. I think that in these uncertain times regarding fuel prices, the best option is to drive at a fixed price, which again, taxis can't do, but shuttle services can.

Subaru legacy 3.0 2005 by grassfed in cars

[–]EsterVacero 1 insightful - 2 fun1 insightful - 1 fun2 insightful - 2 fun -  (0 children)

I recently made the decision to switch from my rusty 2005 Subaru Legacy 3.0 to a wrecked 2014 Toyota Camry that I bought at a car auction for around $3,500. There were a few reasons why I made this choice. Firstly, as my Legacy was approaching its 16th year, I knew it would soon need costly repairs and maintenance. I decided that it would be more cost-effective in the long run to switch to a newer car that would have fewer issues. Secondly, I wanted a car that was more fuel-efficient. My Legacy had a 3.0-liter engine, which was great for power but not so great for gas mileage. The Toyota Camry, on the other hand, has a smaller 2.5-liter engine and is known for its fuel efficiency. Lastly, I was looking for a change and I found a great deal at the car auction. I found the link https://abetter.bid/en/car-finder/type-automobiles which helped me find this deal. I was able to get a newer car at a fraction of the cost of buying one new.

Actually I'm really happy with my decision to switch to the Toyota Camry. It's been a great car so far and I'm confident that it will serve me well for many years to come 👍

Good thing they have coal fired power plants to charge them back up.

tl;dr: the trucks run out of juice in 4 hours instead of working a 12 hour shift, when doing plow duty. Plus they're expensive and the charging infrastructure needs more inve$tment.

Just a few tidbits of major FUBAR glass jobs of the planet = (1) most often fuckup is at glass processor (the factory that takes giant stock sheets and converts those into glazing lites to be installed) and they can do that several ways. (2) Then major fuck #2 is architect who draws something fancy but fuck Engineer (people like me) and Glazier have no damn idea how to pull it off. (3) #3 then is glazier who installs and not much brighter than a smart monkey. Axiom = "glazing is a very angry trade" and I so wish I had never fallen into it for now for me at 44 years of it actually just past 20 years there's no turning back.

Assume you mean mine. 44 years insanity now of "glass" around the planet and my MSge PH.d from Manchester (UK) of Materials Science glass engineering quite real. Far too few call on me to get it right 1st time but I sure do get lots of jobs to figure out how to unfuck a major glass job.

Indeed funny. 100% every front windscreen of the modern 1st world is laminated annealed meaning 2 lites of almost-always bent/curved (it's stronger and more aerodynamic) and most always each layer just 3mm thick so a bit less than 1/8th ". Annealed is not strengthened in any way by laminating it it simple means upon break - it tends to stay in place unless catastrophically impacted. "Crack propagation" is quite a thing as annealed glass has very consistent lattice-work of micro-strands so upon initial crack it wants to crack further and not a damn thing can be done to stop that. Sometimes a "shell or ball-peen" impact can be fixed via an autoglass shop with vacuum applied resin and that actually does work. But not on cracks as they tend to "run" and not stop.

Fun fact: I got a stone chip on the way to church one day, figured I'd get a DIY repair kit and fix it after church, and the crack had run across the whole windshield by the time church let out. Glass is funny stuff.

It's called thermal shock and glass does not like that. Can also happen when a portion of glass is in direct solar light and the balance of glass shaded. That's called a heat break.

I know there's not enough minerals to make batteries for everybody to have electrics, but this is possibly a game changer until we run out of battery materials, and the batteries are only getting better.

Yeah the trade in value of electric cars is gonna suck when people realize they are about as good as a pre-owned cordless power tool. It's all about the crapped out battery and the prohibitive cost of replacing it.

$14k battery if you could find one but you can't

If you buy an electric car used, you are practically begging for exactly this to happen to you!

A junkyard engine will run with no modification after sitting a few years. A junkyard battery will be possibly dead and irrepairable just from sitting for too long.

Thanks. I have finally have my big garage and have put together a decent tool collection. I am also in a place financially where I can outsource parts of the job that I probably don't have enough practice with, like the body work. I have had too much on my plate at work this year, so as things settle down, I will hopefully start back on this project. Seeing so many old cars on the road as the weather warms up makes me itch to get going.

Frontier head gasket update by Zapped in cars

Got this far last Sunday evening. It's on hold for another week while I have other stuff to do. I had to unbolt (see: shear off bolts) downstream exhaust to slide the catalytic converter back enough to reach the last two exhaust manifold bolts. Now that it's out, I am thinking about trying to install the exhaust manifolds on the heads and then put the heads on the block. The cat-to-manifold nuts/bolts are easy to get to.

I get it. They wanted over half the cost in labor alone to do some repairs on mine a bit back. Outside of getting an alignment there and something else I can't remember, we ended up doing everything at home. If you've got the gift of figuring out what to do, there's pretty good rewards to diy'ing it.

Yeah, with the price of used cars right now, I find repair can be cheaper than getting something newer. It hasn't always been that way, though. Plus, you don't always know what the newer car has been through or if the previous owner did the routine maintenance.

I got the driver's side head off the block without having to take the catalytic converter out. It looks like coolant was blowing out the two end exhaust ports. I'll check the head for square and decide where to go from there. It also looks like the previous owner knew it was leaking and used some sealer that has gummed up some of the coolant holes.

Dude, starters aren't shit compared to head gasket replacement. Working on cars is rewarding as hell though, especially when you realize how much money is being saved from paying labor.

I guess I should stay and pay attention since our other car has a leak in the headgasket, despite not being the same make/model.
