    Goodbye high dollar phone bill - Trying Mint Mobile

    You can go up in the canyons around the Salt Lake Valley here. The only phone that will work ALMOST all of the time is Verizon. You know "you never really need your cellphone to work"-until you really need it to work..................does your vehicle break down when it's convenient as well?

    China’s electric car strategy is starting to go global

    It's things like this that bring out the worst in people. What is it that makes a vehicle owner park where others could TRULY NEED IT? This is pitiful................low rung on the food chain. Obviously-the laws are lagging behind the morons.......................

    There is always someone who posts like this. Impossible to know if this is a good buy unless you want to go look at it. On edit-after following the link obviously a SCAM.

    Hyundai Motor shares dive after engine woes prompt third-quarter profit warning

    Sure it is. I had a expensive Subaru with terrible paint. Requested a $600.00 repaint for a couple of panels on the car-under OEM warranty BTW. Subaru told me to pound sand. SO- a few months after that-got rid of the Subaru and we will never own one again in this household. So-I bought the...

    New Cars and Financial Ineptitude

    No-an exaggeration. As much as I hate Costco for tires-due to their extremely long waits for install and rotations on tires-even for 18 or 20" tires (for trucks) you can get tires for much less than $2,000.00. You can't buy a decent used car for that. For most-we all know new OEM tires are...

    Treadwright - 235/80R17 - Winter Kedge

    Treadwrights reviews are more negative than good. Yes-I can think of at least three Chinese tires (or other country of origin) that get decent reviews over the OP's choice. Glad he won't be on the road anywhere near me.

    That's a cop out about stealing technology. It's not like each car manufacturer dissects each others cars....right?

    Long distance rental review - 2020 Volvo V90 Cross Country

    If I short trip my Silverado-it gets 16.5 mpg. It's a $54,000.00 (MSRP) truck. I knew going in it wasn't an economy vehicle. It would seem gas mileage info of potential vehicles out there one whats to buy-is readily available. If you want good mpg-there are Jettas, Elantras and the like out...

    Long distance rental review - 2020 Volvo V90 Cross Country

    If you can come up with the cash for one of these-I don't know why gas mpg would be a concern. I just went on Volvo's site and built one-not fully loaded but very nice- $57,000.00. griping about gas mpg by owners.......................really?

    China’s electric car strategy is starting to go global

    The 10 speed (and nine speed) were jointly developed by GM and Ford. I guess each put their own tweaks in it.

    2021 Durango R/T Tow and Go package

    I towed a 25 foot travel trailer with a 4Runner that had the V8. It did OK. Not a very stable rig with crosswinds. I guess you can tow anything with any vehicle-but you get a couple of semi trucks passing you-creating a vortex-thus a sway situation that's when you want a pickup truck.

    China’s electric car strategy is starting to go global

    Good point! However-I expect more " mass production" vehicles like the Tesla model 3 by the Chinese coming. Let's face it-they are not as complicated and have far less moving parts than their I.C.E. counterparts. If they can meet crash standards the Chinese will import them over here.

    2021 Durango R/T Tow and Go package

    Boats are a whole different situation than towing a boxey travel trailer. With that being said-a short wheelbase tow vehicle IS NOT IDEAL whatever one tows.

    2021 Durango R/T Tow and Go package

    It has a a wheelbase just shy of 120". In comparison a 4Runner has a 109" wheelbase. While the Durango has plenty of power for towing-a trailer much over 25 feet would result in "the tail wagging the dog". Shorter wheelbases not good for towing any length.

    7-11 motor oil by Lucas (pics)

    You have to understand the "mindset" of those who would buy a quart of oil for a 20 year old car at 2 a.m. in the morning-along with a six pack and a hot dog.
