Biggest gripe about your car?

Shit, my car keeps blowing the fuse for the rad fans. Surprisingly the 302 doesn't overheat too easily so it usually isn't a problem and not much coolant boils over even when I beat on it. I guess that's why 184 rwhp out of a 5.0 engine isn't stressing the motor too much, haha!

Once I move my plan is to pull the rad and have a custom aluminum one made with some nice ducting and some real bad ass fans. I'm super happy with my "around the city" performance right now but this radiator situation feels like sandpaper on my testicles.

What are your pet peeves with your car right now?

Main issue I have with my car is I always have to charge the battery because I don't drive it enough. Stuck using my SUV because of the car seat for my kid won't fit in my car. Realistically I'm going to have to sell it but i don't want to, 9 years old and only 45K on it.

Gearing is way too short and mileage isn't good because of that.

My last gen Ralliart does 110km/hr at 3500rpm at 5th gear I'm practically hitting mivec on the highway. I get roughly 9.5km/L

lol even the stock 2.5L motor can pull 184 rwhp with simple bolt-on. Better put a large blower with it.

The speedometer is off by 7% and BMW says there's nothing they can do about it.

2014 focus ST

- front wheel drive sucks, no proper LSD
- can spin 1st, 2nd easily and during the winter into 3rd
- for a hatch, it doesn't have a lot of cargo space
- not a big aftermarket. Parts are really expensive
- exhaust note sucks no matter what exhaust or mods

Subaru Impreza Hatchback: Its acceleration is very slow and sluggish.

Although, it can carry three, maybe four snowboarders and their snowboarding gear up to Whistler, which was its intended purpose so I really shouldn't complain that much.
