With the freezing temperatures my emergency brake froze during the night. Now my car will not go, is there anything I can do other than wait and hope it warms up?
Hi Patty, When I go around corners I feel like I do not have full control, it almost feels like when you drive on ice you have no control of the steering. Does this sound like something serious? Jennifer
Hi Patty, I have a 2007 Honda Accord with about 31,000 miles. It will be 2 yrs in Feb. 7 that have had this car. Can you give me some advice if its a good idea to trade it in. I still owe about 19,000 on it. Can you advice me if i should consider trading in for new one. Janie

My dream is to one day own my own junkyard and body shop sitting on my own land. I wanted to know if there are any female owned junkyards? How they got started? How I could get in touch with them for some advice?
We purchased a Ford Edge 2008, in June 2008. Sometimes the foot brake works when depressed and sometimes it does not. What is the cure? thanks
I have a 1997 Jeep Wrangler (just a basic Wrangler; not an SE, Sport nor Sahara). The windshield fluid dispensers on the hood often get clogged/frozen in the winter. Is there a way to prevent this or fix it when it happens? I tried poking a pin into the holes of the two dispensers but that rarely works.
