First of all, I want to say how EXCITED I am to see that there is a website for women about automobiles. I did not have a male figure in my life growing up (and don't currently have a husband or boyfriend who can teach me), so this is exciting for me to learn about automobiles. I have a question but I have a story to the question first... Last year, ...
My VW EOS won't start for the 3rd time in the past 2 months . During the first time, thank God I was at home. The car would click but would not start. The dealership replaced the battery. A few weeks later, the car would not start again. Same symptoms - clicking noise but this time would start but would cut off immediately. The alternator light appeared ...
I own a 2008 dodge avenger! I have had a slew of problems with this vehicle but its paid for hence the reason I keep fixing it!

Would you say the the year & mileage that the car is worth it? Thanks, I'm having really bad anxiety from ...
I recently bought a bunk car at an auto dealership. I drove it the first day, and after that the vehicle wouldn't start. The dealership mechanic said it was a dead battery due to a drain by a crappy factory radio. My first question is, why would the factory installed radio do this now in all its 10 years of life? Before buying the vehicle, I requested ...
This may not be in something you deal with but I need some support about a bad car repair I had. After the shop worked on my intake manifold the engine started to whine, clattering like little hammers in the engine, speeding up and slowing down , the check engine light was still on and the car was still leaking oil When I took the car the only problem I had ...
