I have a 2002 Saturn that all of a sudden started chugging like its out of gas which its not,someone told me it could be my fuel intake valve?
While out and about tonight my turn signal (shifter) just broke. At least it is not tight in the column. Is this a fairly easy fix on a Chevy Corsica or is just cheaper to take it in to be fixed? Approximate cost/time for repair??
My front brakes were noisy and I took my 2002 Jeep Grand Cherokee in for a look. What was supposed to be a "99.00" brake job has suddenly become a $600+ brake overhaul. The service adviser is telling me I need calipers, hoses, brake rotors, and pads. This sounds extreme for a vehicle with less than 50,000 miles. What do you think?
I will be buying a car soon. I have been driving my current car for 8 years. I have a credit score of 775. How can I make sure the dealership does not send my application to 10 different banks. They will pull my credit and my score will be reduced greatly. I do not want that to happen. Thanks
What is the safest family car in 2007? And is there any statistic for that information?
is the Chrys. Pacifica a good choice in maint., cost, mileage, and purchase? does it have any bad..press?
How do I get the lowest interest rate possible with purchasing my used car? Are there any lenders you may know of, besides going through the dealership's financing? My credit score is 680, and the salesman says he can give me 7.5 on a 4 year loan for a 2003 vehicle. Thank you!!!
