    Finally getting front end fixed

    Wow. That kind of sound wouldn't drive me crazy, it would scare me. You must have nerves of steel. But yeah, that's a very important of the entire vehicle.

    Key fob dead again

    Are you getting it straight from the dealer? Do you have your choice of codes to program into it, or is it pre-set. I would look into those questions first.

    Checking Transmission Fluid

    Is it really better to check your transmission fluid while the engine is running? If so, why? If you don't need to have your vehicle running when you check your oil, why the transmission fluid?

    New or Slightly Used?

    Slightly used for me. At least I know they're broken in and what could have gone wrong with them probably already did. That, and they cost less.

    Voice Activated

    I think you may be onto something there. LOL I really don't think it's all necessary. I think car makers put those options in so they can say the car is "new and improved"

    Do You Like Convertibles?

    I never really got into convertibles that much. Maybe it's because they're small cars and I'm kind of a big guy, but I've always liked bigger cars and trucks.

    Age of Transmission

    I've heard that most transmissions in both cars and trucks will need to be serviced at around 200,000 miles regardless of how well you keep your vehicle maintained. Is there any truth to that?

    Body Glue?

    I know what that stuff is, I just can't think of the name of it right now. It has 2 tubes with the stuff in them, one black and one grey, and they work very well.

    New bumper!

    I go to those places all the time too. There are some really great deals there, and even though you may go for just one or two things, you could end up leaving with 5 or 6. A lot of good deals to be had

    Z 34

    The closest thing I had to a car I could really brag about was a '76 Monte Carlo. Back in the day of course. I really hated having to give that one up.

    They probably all have Techron, but since this company thought of the marketing tactic first, it's theirs. But yeah, everyone is right. It's just marketing and nothing else.

    Sea Foam

    That sounds like some really good stuff, I'll have to try it someday. I've been using the STP brand for years though and that works well also.

    Fuel Additives

    When used consistently, yes, I think they do. It's been my experience that you can tell the difference after 2 or 3 fill-ups if your driving habits don't change.

    Specialty or general?

    If it's transmission work, then definitely see a specialist. If it's just a combination of a few minor things, then yeah, a one-size-fits-all type of shop should be good enough.

    Driving on empty

    Just like dirty fuel can hurt the pump, it isn't good for the lines either. The gunk that the fuel carries through them from the bottom of the tank can build up eventually.

    Noisy AC unit

    When it makes a noise like that it usually means it's about to go. If you can't troubleshoot it yourself I'd take it to a mechanic so they can diagnose the problem.

    How hard is it to change your car's brake shoes?

    Yes. You can safely do it yourself. Just make sure you have the right tools and some kind of step by step guide if you've never done it yourself before.

    1 million dollars

    If someone gave you 1 million dollars to buy a vehicle of your choice, including going to wherever you need to in order to buy it, what would you buy?

    Do you think the auto industry as a whole is doing a good enough job marketing itself? Many people still think the industry still needs to work on it's image. What do you think?

    Tesla 2nd Generation Roadster

    I hope it actually happens, but those numbers are a bit hard to believe coming from an electric motor. It would be better for the environment if more people bought electric though.
