    Would mobil1 0w40 be too thick for a 09 sonata?

    Would mobil1 0w40 be too thick for a 09 sonata?

    My wife drives about 100 miles a day total to and from work. I was useing castrol edge 10w30 until they changed to this new titanium version so the last oil change was M1 EP 5w30 and the motor seems a lot more noisy. I'm kicking around the idea of useing M1 0w40 but I'm not sure if that would be...

    Deal-breakers when you're dating

    If you plan on getting married the most important things in my opinion are: 1. religious beliefs 2. Morals/values 3. Someone that you would want to be a mother to your future children 4. matching intimacy interests/amounts 5. This one is a must for me but maybe not for others nice teeth and...

    Is Triple AAA a good deal?

    My AMEX platinum card gives roadside assistance plus gives me a ton of other perks so I see that as a better value than AAA.

    Gasoline Cash Back Credit Cards

    The AMEX blue cash preferred gives you 6% on groceries, 3% on gas and 1% on everything else. It has a annual fee of $75 I believe but if you just bought gas and groceries with the card it would more than pay for its self. The Blue cash card gives 3% groceries and 2% gas and that has no fee. The...

They get roughly the same gas milage, the VW is about 5k more, the VW has free service till 36k, the VW has better resale value. The Cruze parts are less expensive and easily availible, its 5k less, its made in America. What...

    Anyone have a GM OLM or OLM I/II plan?

    I'm going to buy a Chevy Cruze eco with the 1.4T and they mentioned throwing in one of these plans. My only concern is if they use synthetic or not?? I would think that the 1.4 would need synthetic with the turbo. Does anyone have these plans? How has it worked out? link to what I'm talking...
