Who here knows cars? I'm in a difficult position and need to replace my 1999 toyota camry engine. 2.2 L 4 cylinder fed. I dont know much about cars and its hard looking for a reliable engine. Any sites online that any of you have had a good experience with? Also too any car people can a 2.0 engine from japan replace my 2.2?
my family bought a hyundai sonata for the fuck of it (to replace our second car) last june and i gota say im pretty impressed with it. pretty good gas mileage, hyundai has a pretty decent reputation so far for the car being durable, low maintenance and the style, comfort, look on the car is actually pretty solid.
elantra is great also if you have a smaller family (Just the 3 or 4 of you). two of my cousins have bought elantra/sonatas, 3 of my friends also have elantra/sonatas all from the 2011-2013 years and they all have 0 complaints.
personally im not a fan of mazda or mitsubishi because neither of their reputations are all that great. Mitsu's lancers have a nice exterior look and all but honestly the gas mileage isn't great.. and gas is expensive as fuck nowadays. Also a lot of my friends with mitsu's say theres a lot of small maintenance problems. doesnt cost a lot but it happens frequently enough that it adds up. The new skyactiv technology on Mazda is pretty sweet i gotta say. Mazda has had a pretty shit reputation in the past few years but every single person i know that owns a new 2014 mazda fucking LOVES the car and mazda has been hyping their 2014 cars especially with skyactiv for so long now.
also hyundai is cheap as FUCK. my fam bought the sonata (one up from base model), with tinting and the final price we paid for the car was 25,500,000 CAD. Yeah my mom ripped the fuck outta the salesman but still, hyundai is cheap as fuck because Korean cars are trying to break into the market.
Ik a lot of ppl in the states though enjoy driving american cars over japanese/korean cars though
