I test drove a 2011 Buick Regal today and noticed that the steering wheel always turned to the left when I put in park or turned it off. It never came back into proper alignment as all steering wheels do. I really loved the car so I went ahead with the purchase because the sales person said it was not a problem and they would check it out. But it's been ...
Jody Devere, I enjoyed your Forbes article about women and car manufacturers.I drive a 2014 Ford Fiesta and As a woman, I would like cars that have seats that go all the way back for resting. When I commute long distances, I like to pull over and rest. I feel safer when I have the option to stay comfortable in my car. I would purchase a car that has this ...

I drove about 8 miles heading home when I decided to stop ...

The Chevy dealer includes a free oil change and tire rotation for 2 years with my purchase ...
Recently I purchased a 89 Jeep comanche 4 cylinder 2.5 l engine 5 speed manual 73k. Runs well cold but after it warms up it Boggs, stutters, chokes, and fails to respond to the gas pedal. Tops out at 40 to 50 when this happens. The idle will drop very low when I pull to a quick stop and sometimes it dies. Otherwise, the idle rests reasonably well at around ...
