    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 on...

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

    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 we...

    Car Recommendation

    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 Android...

    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...

    Any one had/has Plantar Fascitis?

    I used to have it when I worked as a consultant and was constantly standing up all day on hard data center floors. I now have a job where I can wear sneakers everyday and the plantar facitis is gone. I hope your surgery goes well.
