    Jeep compass any thoughts good or bad??

    I have a few Jeeps... The Cherokee and Renegade burn a bit of oil, but I'm not really concerned about that. It could be a concern for others. It's about 2qt every 5000 mile change for both, which is right in line with an awful lot of other new vehicles. The 2.4 Multiair does have a recall...

    200,000 miles is in fact rare, only 1% of vehicles reach it

    I had a little Toyota Yaris hit 201k, then I sold it to my brother-in-law who absolutely loves little cars for some reason. The guy collects classic mustangs, and little cars.

    Downgrade Windows 10?

    1. Telling a novice computer user to overclock is terrible advice. Overclocking is completely unnecessary unless you're chest-thumping over benchmarks. It's has absolutely no impact on day-to-day computing. 2. Clockspeed is not king. RAM amount and HDD speeds are. If doing something like...

    Test Drove a '19 Crosstrek

    I really don't know why anyone can make an argument against the Subaru AWD. The cars are designed from the ground up to be AWD. This isn't some bolt on PTU solution they came up with to make a FWD car become AWD. They design them from scratch to be nothing but AWD.
