Hi, I took my Chevy Trailblazer to the dealer for a recall repair and they said my water pump also needed repair for $460.

The service advisor called me back and gave me a long list of repairs, that she said the technician told her would correct the problem. I authorized the work, for a ...
My husband worked for GM for 47 years and the GM discount that is given to everyone at this time is very unfair to those that made GM what it is today. If they treat everyone the same then they are asking for everyone to go and buy foreign cars, if they want to run a special then it should not be an employee discount for everyone. If that is the way they ...
Ah, you are a God-send! I just read about you in the Providence Journal. I*m a single woman, retired and don*t have any family or male friends to help me with car buying. I*ve been wishing there was someone I could go to to help me with this big financial decision. I looked up female friendly dealers and there are none with in 50 miles. Here*s the ...
