      I really like your content but I don't know if it's ok how you treat safety equipment like ABS and airbags. I think an airbag can make the difference between you dying and not dying in crash. It's the same as saying it's ok if the seatbelt doesn't work anymore.

      You should use seatbelts anyways even if the airbags work. Extra so if theres 10 airbags and they work. They're designed for occupants to be belted not for occupants flopping around(braking, spinning) with their face on the panels the bags bursts out from

      @nobodys baby Well not variable enough for Scotty. His been saving up his winter vocabular for this one day or so, of snow. Move to Canada next, Scotty. I'll be thrilled to see you in freesing cold, well below zero. Six feet of new over night snow and hard solid ice on the windshield. I am only joking. Myself I come from Norway, but now it is more snow in TX than here.

    My 2019 Buick Encore accumulates condensation in the charge air bypass valve that can freeze below -18°C / 0°F. When it freezes, it increases crankcase pressure and blows your PCV valve leading to a ton of white smoke, a loss of power, and ultimately an $1,100 repair if it’s not under warranty. I live in Canada and it has happened to mine twice in 31,000 km. GM’s solution was to provide a silly little winter grille cover that you need to take off when the temperature goes above freezing or your engine will overheat. Trading it in for a new Mazda CX-5 tomorrow.

    Hey Scotty, Every Hawaiian island is a melting rust pot. It is Essential!! To have your new vehicle in Hawaii to be rust coated immediately after purchase. Otherwise, the cars rot as fast as cars in the northeast or Chicago. Obviously the new owner in Hawaii was pretty sharp. Nice vehicle-

    OMG, where to begin... 1, airbags are designed to work with seat belts, not instead of them. Saying you don't need airbags because you have seat belts is like saying you don't need seat belts because you have brakes. It's an extra layer of safety, not a replacement. 2, AWD does not increase safety on ice and snow. It just prevents you from getting stuck. Not slowing down because you have AWD is dumb because, last I checked, 2wd cars still have 4 wheel breaking, exactly the same as AWD cars. AWD cars also have the same 2 wheel steering as their 2wd counterparts. The only difference between a 2wd Highlander and an AWD Highlander is which wheels are connected to the engine. There is no difference is safety because all the safety systems have the same part numbers in both.
