My old vitaras neutral battery terminal was touching the bonnet not letting it start. i only found out it was that because with the bonnet up it was fine and there was a hole in the bonnet where it contacted.

51:23 - ".... they've got a top speed of around 20mph........" I have an electric scooter in China (stand on, not like a Vespa, although I have an electric Niu scooter too) that does GPS verified 52kph (32mph). It can genuinely be a bit scary! 😂

Don't dress like a dosser and expect somebody to treat you like you're going to drop a heavy bag on a car. The amount of time wasters out there is unreal, don't dress like you are one.

Back in the early '90's I was a salesman for a car company. An elderly, scruffy looking gent came in & was looking at a new 4X4. My fellow salesmen totally ignored him. I took an interest as I was young & eager & thought I could improve my sales technique just by talking to the man. To cut a long story short he bought the Landcruiser in cash & that's when I found out that Scotland did a £100 note! not judge! All the best...........

One old lady owner, only ever driven to church on Sundays. (The stupid Landrover has spent so much of its life broken that the milage is incredibly low) Genuine milage, runs well (We've just spent thousands getting it working again, please buy it before it breaks) Becoming very rare (running examples that is, immaculate broken examples are still very common) Recently had big money spent (just had a lot of money spent so we can sell it) Superior English engineering (inferior reliability) Genuine reason for sale (genuinely over it, this car is cursed) Come grab a bargain (come buy a lemon)

i would go to a car dealership, wearing what ever the hell i wanted to, picked up my most recent car in a full blown tracksuit as it happens. Still drove away in the car....silly really that people will look at your choice of clothing that day and assume your social stature or wealth small fathers friend was 19, going back 33 years ago, 2 men came onto the forecourt, he was a car sales man. Guys came in, old jeans, tee shirts...trainers....older guys in the forecourt where like, you can have them good luck getting a sale....he sold 12 ford seirras as a fleet sale. I dont know if my old man, told me this story, to make me think to never judge a book by its cover, or to never judge a person by their appearance (if so it worked for me) or if it actually happend...but it made me believe that everyone, regardless of looks, wealth, or anything else, deserves as much a chance as a guy strolling in with a suit my two pence for what its worth

I guessed cappuccino as soon as you said japanese and rwd 🤣

I got Cappuccino. Not too many rear wheel drive Suzuki. I initially thought Vitarra but then when you said its not 4 or 6 cylinder I automatically thought 3 cylinder rear wheel drive. Cappuccino obvious answer.

Someone tried to pull that "headgasket failure" scam on a friend of mine. He also smelt a rat and got his wife and daughter to keep them talking whilst he checked his CCTV. You should have seen their faces when he showed them the footage of one of them pouring something in the exhaust and then my friend telling them that if they really wanted it, the price had now doubled. They went away empty handed.

The problem with being able to hear a bike coming while in your car, is that everyone else has to hear that bike for half a mile around.

my uncle went to a Porsche dealership a couple years ago and began to look around and decided on a 911 and when he wanted for someone to offer their services so he could by the car they wouldn't go near him, so he went to Audi ttrs (manual). I'm not rich enough to own an Audi or porsche. Just a story.

Jeans are workwear typically used by construction workers and trades people. Joggers, slacks and shorts are leisure wear - you are going to buy a car in your leisure time. Makes sense to me.

Most idiots arent using the electric scooters on the roads, they're using them on pavements.

Also, regarding electric scooters, only the schemes run by local councils in city centres are legal. The ones you buy yourself are still illegal to use in public places.
