    Tires for 2014 Toyota RAV4 XLE

    I hate to echo standard BITOGisms. But the truth of the matter is that the Generals RT43's are great tires if they are available in the size you need. I have a set on my wife's 2017 Santa Fe XL w/AWD are they are an excellent tire. Geat in snow and rain. Not sure about gravel. Good luck on...

    2021 Tesla Model S, is it now the best Tesla choice?

    Explain please. Here in the greater Salt Lake area prices are up 25% from 5 years ago. And we are not the only state with this increase. It sounds like you don't own a home-or are in a depressed area....

    Rental Review: 2020 Tacoma TRD 4WD

    Yeah-but you can still walk after an 8 hour highway trip w/o back pain-with any of the domestic pickups. And another thing-check KBB-the resale value is crazy on trucks. My 2018 Silverado is worth about $7,000 less than what I paid 2 years ago. Why? Because the same truck new is almost $10,000...

    Rental Review: 2020 Tacoma TRD 4WD

    The Japanese don't get the full-size SUV segment. They never have. Look at the Koreans right now-they are killing it with the Telluride and Palisades.

    2006 Jetta TDI 5-speed with 324K miles in Florida

    There is nothing easy about replacing some suspension components. Maybe to you...generally it's not easy. I see replacing parts must be something you have the time for---based on the miles you have on your vehicles. Personally spending evenings or Saturdays wrenching is not something I find...

    Rental Review: 2020 Tacoma TRD 4WD

    The ride quality has pretty much been stated as garbage by all PROFESSIONAL reviewers......A Tacoma owner on here did a cross country trip in one. He lived somewhere in the East and drove to Las Vegas (I believe). Basically-it was determined it's an absolute terrible extended highway cruiser...

    GM pickups of the future.

    The auto makers are looking to cut both weight and costs. Personally-I'd rather have plastic on the outside of the car that hard plastics at touchpoints inside the vehicle. My $54,000 Silverado's dashboard is a sea of plastic.

    I think I am done with sams club.

    True-but you get points using their credit card when you buy meds. Im not sure if Costco members get meds cheaper with the membership/credit card. But my rebate last year with the Costco card was substantial.

    0W20 shortage at Walmart

    I have seen guys wearing shop issued shirts doing exactly that. Some on here have said that small shops can actually buy oil a little cheaper at Walmart then oil distributors.

    The Silverado saga continues!

    I am wondering if the fleet owner has figured in downtime and the subsequent revenue lost when one of the trucks is down.

    Ever bought a car sight unseen?

    Not a bad looking car. Anyway-you made a little money and provided (a sought for) project. The bottom line is that it sounds that with CoPart the pictures may "leave things out"....

    0W20 shortage at Walmart

    It's my experience when they are out of stock of an item-it takes several days-even weeks for it to get back on the shelf. I have seen this on numerous occasions.

    2006 Jetta TDI 5-speed with 324K miles in Florida

    Really? The CV joints/ball joints, etc., arre not going to wear like a gas motor? Other suspension components?
