  2. 2006-2012 Eclipse (General 4G)
    Hey all, So shortly after my first post my eclipse (GT V6, 6 Speed Manual, 204,000kms) was in an accident. Instead of buying the necessary new parts (over $4000 worth) I decided to purchase a second eclipse (GT V6, Auto, 85,000kms). As it turns out the engine on the second eclipse has very low...

    I was on my way home from a buddies house and was grabbing my books for a linux class I had in about an hour. I was running a little bit late and was feeling very confident in my driving skills, so I started passing everybody I saw. I saw a truck coming up, as well as a very sharp turn, and...

    I'm gonna start this by saying that there were no major injuries. Thankfully we both had our seatbelts on, and weren't speeding. Ok, show and tell time. Yesterday my girlfriend and I were in a car accident. For it to happen a lot of stupid things had to happen, but the kicker of it all: She...

    I was driving home from work one night when an 18-wheeler side-swiped my car. The appraiser hired by the trucking company considered my car a total loss. They paid me "fair market value" for the car which of course means that I cannot afford to buy a car just like mine or even a GS for what they...
