I am hearing a chirping noise from the engine or belt.
My friend is blaming her mechanic for her transmission going. She says he should have changed the fluid when he did the oil change in august. He said he checked the level and it was fine. He has not serviced her vehicle in two months and she has driven several thousand miles. Can he be blamed? I trust him because he is my mechanic too.
Had this problem since we had the car. Sometimes, the security system will fail safe and car will not start. Recently it will not start...just a humming noise at the beginning and nothing. Tried several times. Car shop said its the starter...I think its something else...what do you think?
Are there finance companies or car dealers that can do provide low cost financing for vehicles to transport mobility carts?
When my car hits a bump, the steering wheel shakes violently. It has since disappeared, but a mechanic noticed that a piece of what looks like the suspension is disconnected on the passenger front side (under the car) and connected on the driver side. Any idea what may be the problem? I just had it towed a week ago because the alternator died.
when does Gmac offer you to buy the car. I think the price at the end of the lease is 17,500 but as a used car it is more around 14,000. will they negotiate with me? Should I buy the car it has very low mileage on it. I have not got alot of cash to buy a car and/or a big down payment . Please advise me...I need your advice. thank you so much
