    Rental Review - 2019 Nissan Sentra SV

    So recently spent a few days out at the beach in Florida - had a bunch of airline and Expedia credits due to two cancelled trips so decided to get myself and my other half out of the same 4 walls we have been living, working, eating and sleeping in for the past 3+ months. Flew into Tampa...

    Mercedes E350 4 Matic Owners ?

    Had a '12 E350 4Matic sedan for a short period of time until it met an early demise. Engine mounts are an early failure on the E350, my prior C300 mounts were going bad so seems MB engine mounts are just weak. Dealer quoted me something ridiculous like $1600 to replace the engine and trans...

    5 Dollar A Month Cell Phone Plan

    Another alternative to the big carriers that I have had very good experience with is Xfinity Mobile - only bad is its only available if you are a Comcast/Xfinity cable customer. Have been with them for almost 2.5 years now and never an issue and service and coverage has honestly been better...

    Ridgeline VCM = Oil consumption?

    I'm actually very curious how the newer VCM 3.5's work out. My parents are on their 3rd Pilot (one of each generation - first two gens were EX with no VCM and their current 3rd gen is EX-L w/VCM), they do 95% rural (55 MPH speed limit) driving so it is active pretty regularly and they just...

    Car brand that burned you so bad on reliability you'd never buy again?

    For just being overall garage queen but not leaving me stranded - Chrysler (both Daimler era and Fiat Chrysler era). In Daimler defense my '99 Neon was engineered and designed prior to the merger. For leaving me stranded and spending a significant amount of time on the back of a tow...

    Power washer

    I have a Greenworks 1600PSI (very similar competitor to Sun Joe) - that I have had for ~2 years now. Use it to clean a small patio (vinyl siding and roof and concrete floor) about 3-4x per year and it gets lent out regularly to friends and family quite regularly for whatever they are using it...

    Nissan Kicks 89 octane

    Yup - Nissan 1.6 needs premium all day. The 1.6 they put in their price leader $9,900 Versa needs highest dollar fuel to perform because that is what their customers demand. <img src="/forums/graemlins/LOL.gif" alt="LOL" title="LOL" height="19" width="15" />

    2015 Chevy Sonic - Check Engine Lite

    Yeah give it 80-100 miles before you start celebrating. Had a Fiat 500 with an evap leak and even after new gas cap it took somewhere near/north of 80 miles for the CEL to which point the Chrysler dealership proposed replacing the tank and all the lines to the tune of almost $1,000.
