What I have seen in the industry and in private sales is people hiding the fact that car was in an accident. At least you know where the car was damaged and the work was completed to like new...

Everything is relatively the same with the Toyota engines. The newer Toyota aluminum blocks are quiet sensitive to overheating and if that happens it will melt the block. It generally doesn't happen...

Yes but she gives you a better ride. :D

I also agree that the BMW is a better riding car. I could care less about the novelties and gadgets, only about what counts which is the ride. Having said that BMWs are drivers cars not owners cars,...

Well actually I would avoid some of them money or reliability not being an issue. I would rather have more horsepower and less weight which is a double penalty for the AWD. Also the AWD doesn't have...

I wouldn't mind having options that make the car what it is but for me it was dead weight I can do without. The reliability and drivability factor sealed the deal and made my car that much better....

The dealer gets these young guys that crank on everything. You would think a high end dealership would be better then a quick change oil place but it isn't probably because the hire former employees.

As far as the front control arms go, not every car has this problem but if you do it will cost you an arm if you take it to the dealer. They now sell aftermarket arms with the bushings for a...

I will give credit where credit is due and those equal length headers are really impressive and probably tuned right. It does sound like a small LS1 and a little like a flat crank V8. Although it...

The copper crush washer is there not to seal leaks but to give tension to the bolt as it's being tightened so it doesn't bottom out. If the washer is not there or the old one is being re-used it may...

An out of pocket expense should not be entertained at any cost. If they discover the bolt leaking due to stripped oil pan threads, It's their fault for over tightening the bolt. Don't let them...
