    Car Recommendation

    Thanks. Can't fit 3 car seats in an econo box. They barely fit in my wife's sonata. Also, I still have a loan on the Yukon and don't have cash to buy said econo box.

    Car Recommendation

    Ok the Yukon is worth about $13K. The replacement will cost about $13K. The outcome will be an even trade. The only money lost will be sales tax but insurance will be less because Yukons are expensive to insure. Also, with better mpg I will be spending less on gas. Thanks for the opinions...

    Car Recommendation

    Verified and you are correct about runflats for all model years for this gen AWD Sienna. That stinks.

    Car Recommendation

    Thanks for all the replies. I'll try to answer most of the questions. Excursion...because we like trucks. But it probably isn't in the cards. There are a few in our price range but they're of Y2K vintage. Minivans...sorry, I just don't like them but I'll probably be driving one again. Yes...

    Car Recommendation

    I currently have an '05 Yukon XL. The tranny has started slipping a little and I want to get rid of it soon. I think I'm going to be stuck with a Sienna mini van due to our requirements list: AWD or 4WD Seats 7 2nd row captains chairs Better gas mileage than the Yukon Under $13000 used I'd...

    Exxon Profit surges 55%.... And gas prices are up.

    Ok so in 09 when prices dropped below $2/gal because demand was low, that was a conspiracy too? Oil company profits are always going to increase as long as demand increases....

    Droid Incredible vs. Samsung Fascinate Opinions

    Go and play with all of the VZW Android phones and see which one you like the best. I have the Inc and love it. I think the screen size is perfect but if you want 4"+ then go with another phone. One thing to consider is that each manufacturer has their own "launcher" that sits on top of...

    Extractor for differential?

    I tried a mityvac extractor on the rear diff of my Yukon. The fill hole was in a place which made it pretty much impossible to get more than 20% of the oil out. I ended up taking the cover off. So it depends on where your fill hole is located.

    Craftsman trimmer issues

    I have a 5 year old model similar to yours. For the last few years it would pick up RPMs randomly. It was kind of a pain in the butt to use. This year I started it up and it was barely running. It was real rough and would die if I tried to trim anything other than light grass. I bought a...
