Subaru WRX Repairs

By expectnothing on in News

Forever, my car has been smoking or smelling after I drive. Last time I had the headgasket replaced. Then I had some cooling hoses replaced. This time my axle boot was leaking and my radiator was cracked. They also put in a new timing belt. I had $400 Subaru bucks so the end price was about $520. 🙁 I only have 64k miles but the car is now 10 years old in a few months.

  • New Radiator : $299
  • 2 Hoses
  • New Timing Belt: $150

Asian Drivers

By expectnothing on in News

Irvine is something like 35% Asian. And they’re rich. So that makes Old, Asian, Female Driver in Mercedes/BMW, the worst driver on the road. Now of course not all Asians are that way, it’s a stereotype, but some stereotypes are true when you’re dealing with 35% of the population + female + sometimes old. We have plenty of dear Asian friends and family but just don’t drive anywhere near their moms or grandmas. Now I could make a thread on every crappy driver but I need to gather the biggest groups of the same driver for a post.

See these for an example:

Stories

  • 12/12 – We have this dangerous crosswalk near work. They put a crossing guard out there at night who was so bright and visible, you could see them half a block away. Well an old asian couple decides to head right into him at full speed, until they swerved out of the way at the last minute. A friend chased them down and forced them off the road and yelled at them.
  • 12/12 – Asian lady, Handicapped, Mercedes, driving with her lights off in complete blackness. Had no clue either.
  • 11/27 – We’re entering the freeway on the onramp, accelerating, when this asian lady does a COMPLETE STOP on the onramp. I think she thought she had to wait for the freeway entrance light. But it wasn’t even on, and the sign way before it, showed that it was off. So I haven’t flipped anyone off in like 2 years but I kept air horning her and flipping her off. She passed me again when I exited later on and I did it one more time. She was wearing a stupid barret too.
  • 11/27 – Asian lady drives off with her van door open. Her kid goes running after the van, jumps in and closes the door while the van was going.
  • 11/27 – Asian lady tries to make a turn, then drives up the sidewalk, then keeps driving in circles.
  • 7/8 – Asian lady in BMW tries to ram my friend. He spilled his bike over. She asked him if he had a problem? She meant are you ok?
  • 7/8 – Asian female decides to change lanes, but she does so at a 1 mile distance. She just kept driving forever in the middle of two lanes. I air horned her.
  • 7/8 – I was going through a mall main road and this Asian lady decides it’s her turn to pull out into the line, even when it wasn’t. She had to wait but decided not to. So I aimed my car right at her, and threatened to ram her. She freaked out and stopped in the middle of the road and properly waited for her turn as I went around her. Old, Rich, Asian, Mercedes.
  • 7/8 – Asian male, gets on freeway at 40 mph or so, holding us all up. I drive by and identify him.
  • 7/2011 – A week ago these 2 ladies in a BMW pull out of the parking lot and proceed to drive down the middle of two lanes way down the street before finally turning right.
  • 7/2011 – Yesterday guy waits until I’m doing like 30-40 right in front of his face, then pulls out. Luckily my car could brake enough. I air horned him for about 10 seconds. I didn’t flip him off because I probably work with him on who knows what.
  • 7/2011 – A week or so ago my friend is driving his motorcycle and he gets right up to a person waiting and they pull out in front of him. A motorcycle is really rough to stop when someone pulls out like that.
  • 4/2010 – Reader Story: “I saw the greatest Asian driving screw up this weekend – This Asian husband was driving a mini van and had taken an on ramp to the freeway, he realized that he was going the wrong way and I watch his wife convince him to turn around on the on-ramp! The stupid assholes were now facing the wrong way on the on ramp and trying to drive back into on coming traffic of people trying to get on the freeway. The sad part was that if they just got on the freeway like normal they could have exited 1 block up from where they were and turned around the right way.
  • 1999 – An Asian female in a Honda Accord rammed the back of my car at a stoplight. I was stopped for minutes and she just plowed into the back of my car at the light. Barely spoke any English. Had difficulty even giving me her information.

      OMG - I haven't laughed so hard in a long, long time!! This was brilliant, JDP 2005!! I realize it's from 2014 ... I'm only now seeing it. Loved it!! Totally relate to all!

      Hey, I'm liberal, but I'm an intelligent, east-coast liberal who moved here and I agree with everything you posted except the liberal part ... they are mostly mindless morons - but this goes beyond politics. I too have driven in just about every state in the Union and overseas. Although most states have their fair share of asshole drivers who have many of the bad habits listed above (FL especially), CA seems to have them ALL, and then some!! Ugh.

      Why?
      I wish that Cali drivers would stay in California and not come to Las Vegas, Nevada! They are some of the worst drivers I have seen and generally make driving on the I-15 miserable. They seem to think that the speed limit signs don't apply to them. When they leave Vegas and head South on I-15 they jam and back up the Interstate near Primm for hours because all these morons all leave at the same time on Sunday. When it gets backed up they act like the emergency lane is their own private express lane and utilize it illegally. Truth be known, here in Las Vegas we hate people who come here from California. Do us a favor, stay where you are and don't come here. Trust me, we think of you as the a-holes you are.

      In Oregon it's the California drivers and tourists that drive me insane, like no, it's not OK to drive slowly in the left lane when there is only two lanes.and one lane is pilled up with semi trucks, My town has been invaded with s.Californians and have ruined the driving experience. They'll stop in the middle,soft he road to take pictures of deer. They'll take up literally every parking spot down town, cut you off on the freeway even though no on is behind you. Use their phones because they for some reason think it's legal in Oregon, as if we are that backwards and behind in times. Text and drive. And drive like complete a holes because they can't figure out how to bet around in a small town where literally every road gets you where you need to go.

      Why?
      THANK YOU!! I couldn't agree with you more! I just moved here from Kirkland, WA last July and I'm already thinking about moving back. I'm already sick of all the people here in California that have such self entitlement attitudes and such disregard for life they think the traffic laws don't apply to them. Since I've been here I've almost been in several accidents and almost been run over in a crosswalk but these people don't care! They are reckless A$$holes!!
    • Laura on:

      Totally agree!! I moved here not even a year ago and I'm already thinking about moving back!

      I DO LIVE IN CALIFORNIA AND I CAN HONESTLY SAY THAT YOU ALL COULDNT BE MORE RIGHT. CALIFORNIA DRIVERS DO SUCK AND IF YOU DONT LIKE IT MOVE, CAUSE THEY ARE HERE TO STAY.
    • BT on:
      Why?
      Hey, I'm stuck in CA driving with these idiots all the time. But you can't complain if you're from TX about CA drivers, although it is the only TX place I have been, Houston drivers are just as bad.

  • About

    I’ve driven in California since 1991. I’ve spent many trips running up and down the state as well as driving in many other states. After all of this driving, I became fed up with how bad California drivers on. I wanted to point out what they do to either help change a few drivers or at least entertain the rest of the world with Californian’s horrible driving.

    I’m located in Orange County in a couple of the richest areas. I see every type of car that is out there in this area. It’s like a car show. Going to a car show isn’t exciting anymore because you see most of the cars driving around anyway. I also work at a place where people buy all the different types of cars. We have Lamborghinis, Ferraris, Lotus, etc. So you can even see a lot of the cars in the work parking lot.

    Disclaimer: You’re on your own with these tips. They are not the official law and in no way represent what you should be doing should a cop pull you over.
