Reliability or Race Worthy?

When it comes to vehicles, would you rather have one that is reliable or crazy fast? 

For my husband and I, we have completely different views. I can appreciate a fast car (and honestly love driving them) but I really feel like having a car that gets great gas mileage and doesn’t have tons of mechanical issues is far more important. While he agrees with the “no technical issues part”, he doesn’t agree that a car shouldn’t be fast. 

If there’s no turbo, what’s the point? 

And in the words of Spider-Man “with great power, comes great responsibility”. AKA, turbo=problems! Not problems like not being seen by cops problems (although that can be a concern). I’m talking about blown head gaskets, finicky exhaust valves, and low-boost turbo problems. It all adds up so fast!! 

Anyway, I’d love to hear some thoughts in the comments about your opinion. Would you pick a fast car despite the maintenance they require? Or do you prefer old reliable? 


What do you think?

As a girl who loves everything sweet and lovely, there is no surprise that I'm addicted to three main things in life: ice cream, fantasy fiction, and my adorable dogs. Growing up in the mountains, I have a natural love for the outdoors and a travel lust that can't be quenched (well it can but only because I have to save up money in between)! When I'm not busy exploring the wilderness or reading my next favorite book, you'll find me diving into video game worlds such as Final Fantasy and Legend of Zelda- exploring their vast worlds and obsession over my favorite characters :)
