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 this 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.

      Why?
      "Quite often you see people that will turn right in front of you cutting you off when you are going some insane speed." The problem is your driving at an insane speed. It's insane aa you say.
    • Vic on:
      Why?
      Who the hell do you think you are thinking like you own the road driving dangerously fast, putting lives in jeopardy? Slower, law abiding drivers also have a right to get in the fast lane if they need to switch freeways. I hope they install cameras to get all these potential murderers.

      Don't piss off the truckers
      I have lived in cali for about 5 years now, originally from the mid west. one thing I notice is truck drivers are complete asshloes here. they always drive in the far right lane, don't even slow down to let cars merge. they act like they're driving minis and not an 18 ton car crusher.complete disregard for safty and totally unprofessional. maybe we need another way to ship goods!!!
    • Shijian zhang on:
      Why?
      Hey, bro. I think you might be one of those bad driver! Many people said most left lab is a express lane! Who tol you that? Is there any different limit speed for different lane on the free way? Limit speed for any of the lanes on the free way! Of course I agree that slower traffics are better to stay in the most right lane but it is doesn't mean that you can go over speeding in the most left lane on the free way! I am a California driving instructor and owner. I believe that you need to learn driving again!
    • Dur on:
      Why?
      California drivers 80% are stupid drivers,they are reckless, careless drivers and bad attitude.
    • Kendrix on:
      Why?
      I agree and I have lived in California for the last 3 years. And yes, thus is the worst state i have yet to see in the US. There's so many people that drive here with no licenses and no insurance. And people who need to really go through drivers ed. My husband was rear ended on Highway I5 by a van with an illegal driver, my husband pulled over so did they but once my husband got out of the car they sped away. We got the license plate called the cops and they were able to track them down, but they used the excuse that the owner did not drive that day and that he did not know who drove his van that day. Our insurance took care of everything after finding out that the driver was indeed illegal, have no license. Again this morning this guy (if you can call him that, cut me off from a non passing lane and proceeded to slam on his break causing me to almost rear end him. And the jerk had the audacity to flick me off and cuss me out! He even went as far as telling me to get out of my car and Duke it out! What? So I did, I opened my door and guess what? The idiot ran a red light just to get away! Haha haha! Guess he was afraid of getting a beat down from a female! Which I'm glad it did not go that far as he's not worth going yo jail for! So, whoever you are black mini Cooper license plate 6XYK224, calm down, lay off the steroids and take anger management class along with driver's ed to learn how to drive properly!
    • Cliff Thompson on:
      Why?
      LA drivers truly suck. I have been around the world and most of the other states. This is I notice for LA: 1) pass at the right drive slow on the left. 2) Weave in and out of lanes. This causes traffic for no reason. 3) ride ass. This also cause traffic for nothing. 4) drive too fast or too slow. Drive the speed of traffic. 5) not allow merging. The merger needs to drive the speed of traffic. The existing just needs to drive the same speed and make slight adjustments. 6) stupid lights. What is this blinking green left turnin the middle of rush hour. Do this at night. 7) stop driving like assholes. In most places thugs drive this way.
    • Name on:
      Why?
      In Cali slow drivers cut off fast drivers, the exiting lane is now the passing lane to the point where they go on the exiting island. Not saying it happened once or twice. No, you'll watch 5 cars do it in 15 min. Everyone's on there phone. I almost get hit 3 times a day. And I just commute around my own city. It doesn't help that new drivers are given bmw's ether. They should have a license retake test every 4 years or so to get rid of some crazy drivers.

      Watch These Army Humvees Violently Crash Into The Ground After A Failed Airdrop
      I've lived in CA all my life. In 1987, the traffic in Orange County was gettin horrendous. In '91, I moved to San Diego and it was so much better. But, that was a long time ago. The County/City allows excessive growth, we have illegals driving here uninsured and with dangerous driving habits, and now a larger influx who drive here legally. It feels like I'm playing bumper cars at a Fair, going 70 mph! Not to mention the texters, cell phone users, tailgaters, weavers, and slow pokes. Seriously. If you are driving 45-60, stay in the SLOW lane. If 75-80, stay in the FAST lane. People forget there are consequences to driving like fools. Vehicular Manslaughter for one..PRISON. Maiming a person. Losing your license. Citations, which are one wks wages, here in CA. If you missed your exit, don't cut off 3 lanes of traffic! Get off at the NEXT exit and circle around! These things are such basics. And if CA DMV continues to hand out licenses like candy to uninsured, incompetent drivers, they are due a massive lawsuit! Gov and Employees! I think if SD continues to add more businesses and housing in already congested areas, they are due a massive lawsuit as well! One time it took me 45 minutes to drive 3 miles! And they're adding MORE business buildings to that area!? So, why do I stay? FAMILY. I appreciate that we have various cultures here, lots to do, decent weather, but we do have a lot of people here who are clueless about personal space! Some people are snooty, have a sense of entitlement and some are just plain ol' mean and act like elitists. There are pervs all throughout our neighborhoods, sex offenders. Yeah, that gives me a GREAT sense of security. And people are messed up with addictions of all sorts. THIS is what Boxer, Feinstein, Brown and the Liberals have done to this beautiful state. Not to mention introducing sex ed at Kindergarten on up. Which has led to sexual harassment in the schools...."boys" pressuring their classmates to sleep with them. What a travesty! Now Obama wants to allow males in all Girls and Women's Restrooms?!? Do you not see the MADNESS of this political party? "Bad is good; good is bad." Forcing Nuns to cover insurance which covers abortion??? When he said Americans would not be forced to pay for abortions. This nation was founded with the Declaration of Independence, "Rights to...LIFE, Liberty and the Pursuit of Happiness..." We protect unhatched Eagle's Eggs. They have more rights than Humans, by Hillary's estimation! Children born here by illegal parents are given Constitutional rights as US citizens, even before birth. The illegal mother gets free medical assistance, as well as the unborn and newborn child. It's a farce. Hillary is just trying to buy votes....or she has lost her soul. Don't you see, as we elect godless leaders, who have no conscience, we ALL suffer the consequences. Are you paying more taxes? More out of pocket for medical care and insurance? I AM. $3000 per yr out of pocket, plus premiums. "You will not pay one more dime when Obamcare goes through." LIE. Honesty, integrity, value for Life, protecting those who are WEAK, who have no voice, treating others as YOU would like to be treated. Would you have wanted to be murdered in the womb? Torn apart in a painful abortion, so your cells could be used in experiments (btw, which so far has not yielded one cure)? Vote your CONSCIENCE. Vote with the values instilled in your soul. Drop any candidate who is self seeking, miopic, blind to the state of the nation, perverting our land. Drop any candidate who is an iron fisted bully or a spineless blob. 1 chance, the you're out! If they fail to live up to their promises. Recall them. Impeach them. Stop the senseless spending.

  • 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.
