Jackrabbit wannabe

I distrust this person’s motives: Do all cars take off slow when you first drive them?

Oh, sure, you gotta go through the motions:

I went to this car lot I fount on Facebook, I’ve been having some doubt about going through with the buying. It’s the only car I can afford out there, it’s an 09 Accord 120k miles. My current car does the same thing and has other issues. So I really need a car, but I don’t want desperation to have me broke an carless. The Accord is also 13k total . Should I go elsewhere, and also when I got to the lot the lot was named a total different name then what it’s called on Facebook.

If you asked me “Is there a worse place to buy a car than craigslist?” I’d have to say Facebook.

And truth be told, if what you really want is to burn rubber with each and every start, I think “broke & carless” is exactly where you need to be.

    The trick — learned with my first car, a carbureted ’71 Vega, but apparently good with new fuel-injected cars — is stop short of flooring it. Each car has a different sweet spot, and some respond better than others.

    I can screech a bit, despite a car with wrong-wheel drive.
