Hi, Patty-- A couple of months ago, I had a problem with a routine oil change. It was a "double gasket" error which led to oil covering the entire bottom of my car. The oil light went on, I got to the closest service center, they took me out into the service bay and explained/showed me the problem. I got the underside power washed, oil changed again, ...
I have a 2006 navigator in great condition. 24" custom rims, 4 high performance new tires low miles mid 30k. I have only had this for truck for 1 yr. My spouse was paying the note. I'm about to go through a divorce and can not afford the note. Therefore what would be the best way to sell it for the balance that's owed 34k. Help please!
I would really appreciate some help deciding which type of car would I be better off buying this year. I am in sales and drive between 70 to 100 miles a day and about 25,000 miles a year. It is probably a 60/40 split highway to city. I usually buy a slightly used car with low miles so I don't "take the hit" on a new car and keep a car 8 to 10 years. I would ...

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 ...
I have a used car-buying Q for you: We have about $14K in hand. If we are looking at two otherwise identical cars, but Car A has 50K miles and costs $12.9K, and Car B has 80K miles and costs $10K, what do you think? Are the 30,000 fewer miles worth $2,900? Of course we will try to bargain, and maybe we can get A for 12, but the same can be said for ...
I am thinking about buying a 2004 Mercedes E-Class 500 wagon, one owner, 47,000 miles. perfect car fax and service records. I have the car on hold while the dealer is performing an inspection and determining what, if anything, needs attention. It is very clean and will be my second car. I live in Colorado and drive a Mini Cooper in the city. The Mercedes ...
