My car (a 2006 Kia)will soon have 30,000 miles on it. The dealers cost for check up far exceeds what I can afford. Exactly what is covered in the 30,000 mile check-up? can I trust auto repair shops to do proper maintenance?
In 2009 I was financed for a 2009 Honda Civic coupe. In April of 2010 I was in a car accident that resulted in the total loss of my car. My insurance company has stated that I never had comp or collision insurance on the car. I was never notified by the dealership or my finance company that my insurance was not sufficient. Legally can you leave a dealership ...

I have a 77 Corvette that has a small hood light that is on when the hood is up. It is been too hot to drive it lately, as the A/C does not work.

I guess I did this time ...
I have a 1993 Jeep Grand Cherokee & have replaced the fan relay switch for the 4th time. The switch seems to last about 4-6 months but this last time it lasted 1 week & there is a black mark on one of the connectors. Is there something I can do to figure out this problem(sounds like a short to me) or will I have to see a professional? Thanks so much
