"The Car ChickTM" is an automotive enthusiast, speaker, writer, radio & television host, and champion race car driver.  LeeAnn owns a unique, personal car shopping service, dedicated to helping women & smart men get a great deal on the Perfect CarTM without all of the hassle and frustration that comes with traditional car shopping. 

LeeAnn’s love affair with cars began at age five with her neighbor’s orange VW Bug and quickly evolved into a passion for racing sports cars and anything else with wheels.  LeeAnn was introduced to the inner workings of the car business in the late 90s as a management consultant, working with large dealership groups to standardize their business processes and technology.  In 2006, LeeAnn opened her car buying service and has devoted her life to changing the way women buy cars.

LeeAnn’s passion for educating and empowering women makes her a popular speaker with women’s business and social organizations.  Known around the world as “The Car ChickTM”, LeeAnn has been featured on dozens of national radio and television programs.  She regularly co-hosts the nationally syndicated radio show, “America’s Garage”, and the internet channel, “Car Chick TV”.

I currently have this car which I have not had for more than a 4 months. Due to circumstances that arose between family I am now trying to trade-in in order to get a newer car under a different person. More so I want to know if I would be having to pay due to equity or if it would be a simple trade in.

My 2001 SL1 sometimes won't start, I can turn the key and it just won't start, and then other days it's perfectly fine. And now today, it wouldn't start at all, no lights, no dinging with the key, it's a manual so I pushed it down a hill and nothing, no lights, no engine turn over, nothing. What could this be?
