  1. Hi! I am new and I know absolutely nothing about cars. My father has a Lincoln and he wants his center caps to "float" like they do on a BMW or Rolls-Royce. How can this be achieved if it can? Thanks!
  2. I am seeking advice and recommendations in my search for new (used) car that will fit my comute to my new job. I will be driving about 75 miles each way making it about 750 miles per week (mainly highway). I have a budget of about $7000. Is there any affordable and reliable brands/models that you guys can recommend I should be looking for? I’d much appreciate the help!

    any help appreciated.

    Okay so here goes. I recently acquired a second hand car radio. It has all the bits and bobs I was looking for, and I got it free from a friend who just brought himself a new radio. It's a Peugeot radio. It has bluetooth, all those nifty features and being a single din radio I assumed it would be easy to just slide my current one out and put this beauty in. However, my car is a Renault. I took my factory radio out and the cables on the back are completely different. Is there any way I can get a Peugeot radio to work in a Renault car? Thank you

    Car Seat wearing down

    Is it possible for a car seat that is 8 years old to become crooked as in that it's upper part of chair is leaning back more on the left side? I worry that this could have been caused by a few guys driving it at my dealership who were a bit heavy set. Even though they were only driving it a very short distance or taking it to get washed on premises...hmm? If they are heavy-set is this what caused this danged twist of deivers seat and also is this something that can be fixed or corrected at my car dealership? My service manager says no but really if it is fixable and a broken spring or bent part maintenance issue I think thwy should be able to help. Does a drivers seat sustain this kind of ctlrookedness over time? I am not overweight and as far as I know I do not lean on that side. I really hope this was not caused by a few heavy set men driving my car ( Cadillac CTS 2011) around the dealership a few x a year. Thoughts? Thanks
  11. If you’re a car owner, then you probably already know that having a car can be quite a commitment. After all, you can’t just let it hit the road all the time or let it linger in your garage. If you want it to run smoothly and efficiently, then car maintenance and repair are your safest bet, which means that you need to visit an auto shop or a car shop routinely. Avoid these car repair mistakes that will put your car at risk. As much as you want the best for your vehicle, there are still instances when certain car maintenance procedures can go awry, or when you forgo certain repairs — all of these, needless, to say, can be damaging to your car and your safety. In order to avoid these dangerous and costly blunders, it’s advisable that you familiarize yourself with them as early as plausible. Listed below are some of the most common car repair mistakes. What are the common car repair mistakes? Opting for a very low-cost mechanic. Filling the engine with an incorrect type of oil. Skipping the oil change. Not changing dirty filters. Ignoring scheduled maintenance. Overlooking your tattered brake pads. Forgetting to check cars. Neglecting fluids. Opting for a Very Low-Cost Mechanic Sure, you want to save some money on repairs, and your instinct might be to go to an extremely economical auto shop or car shop. Unfortunately, there’s a reason why there are low-cost mechanics and more expensive ones — that is, the disparity in quality. You don’t want to sacrifice the welfare of your car by opting for cheap services (not to mention that doing so might lead to more repairs in the future). This doesn’t mean that you need to select the priciest of the bunch. It’s safe if you veer in the mid-range. Additionally, do your homework and check some online reviews or ask for referrals. Filling the Engine with an Incorrect Type of Oil Albeit using an incorrect type of oil won’t necessarily lead to engine failure, doing so can still harm your engine and sacrifice its performance. At any rate, it’s best to be sure what sort of oil you’re supposed to put in your engine. Skipping the Oil Change In other instances, you might decide to skip the oil change altogether. As with the previous one, this might cause your engine to eventually wear out and run less efficiently. In the end, your engine might finally break down. Not Changing Dirty Filters Not changing dirty filters can lead to serious problems in the future. For one, some of your car’s sensors might fail, which means thousands of pesos of repair. Ignoring Scheduled Maintenance A vehicle’s scheduled visit to an auto shop or car shop is already listed down in the car manual, and yet, some car owners still choose to blatantly ignore it. You shouldn’t! After all, a car manual has all the information you need to know about your car, and this knowledge might spare you from expensive repairs! Additionally, following all the instructions written in it guarantees that your vehicle will always be functioning seamlessly. Overlooking Your Tattered Brake Pads Not changing your brake pads when there’s already a sign of wear and tear can be hazardous to your safety. As you might have guessed, it can lead to some accidents that you easily could have avoided if you replaced your brake pads with new ones. Some of the most common manifestations of frayed brake pads are difficult when you’re turning a corner and a deafening, screeching sound that accompanies your car every time it comes to halt. Forgetting to Check Tires For tires, you’ll need to constantly rotate them and to check air pressure. This will help you avoid the imbalanced tread wear on your tires. Uneven tread wear can lead to myriads of issues, such as vibration when driving, irregular traction, and damage to steering and suspension parts. Most auto shops or car shops will rotate your vehicle for a fee. However, if you have a jack and jack stand, then you can perform it by yourself at the comforts of your home! As for air pressure, you can just have it checked at a nearby gas station. Lastly, air temperature also disturbs tire inflation. So even if your tires don’t have air seeping out of it, you might still need to have your tires checked, just to be sure. Neglecting Fluids These fluids are there for a reason — that is, they ensure that your vehicle will be running smoothly and efficiently. If you want to be sure about the fluids that your car will need, then your car manual is your best friend. Key Takeaway Being a car owner isn’t simple. There are tons of things that you need to know and need to do, and one of them is the necessity of regularly visiting an auto shop or a car shop. After all, you need to ensure that your vehicle is always in its prime condition. Unfortunately, there are times when these repairs aren’t really helping. On the contrary, they can be detrimental to your car. There are also instances when you might deliberately ignore certainly. In order to avoid these car repair mistakes, it’s wise that you familiarize yourself with them.

  16. In the quest to simplify your car, automakers are probably going to make life more annoying and difficult, at least for a while. At CES in Las Vegas this month, four automakers announced they're inviting speech-activated virtual assistants -- Amazon's Alexa and Microsoft's Cortana -- to become your driving companion. One who might pester you to buy things, tell you you're driving the wrong way or remind you you've left your house unlocked.

  18. Hello, I recently bought a 2011 Hyundai Sonata GL. The car is currently in perfect condition and I really like it. However, I discovered that the 2011 can have serious engine seizing issues. There has been many complaints at carcomplaints dot com. I am curious if this problem is very common and bound to happen to me? Also, does this affect Sonatas in all countries? I live in Ontario, Canada. The car currently has 55000 km on it. I am trying to decide if I should sell it or keep it. Thank you

  21. Korean Brands Lead Industry in Initial Quality, While Japanese Brands Struggle to Keep Up with Pace of Improvement Press Releases: June 17, 2015 http://www.jdpower.com/press-releases/2015-us-initial-quality-study-iqs I own a 2004 BMW 540i and I'm in the market for a new luxury sedan. I will most likely buy the 2015 Hyundai Genesis. I test drove one 2 weeks ago and the handling is top-notch, pretty much on par with my 540i. I consider Hyundai a high quality brand (although maybe not "premium" yet), and the 2015 Genesis is a very high quality vehicle. However reliability matters the most to me, hence why I'm going with Hyundai. I've seen way too many Mazda's and Subaru's break down all of a sudden with no explanation other than poor reliability. I don't trust Lexus anymore after the braking scandal and now the Takata airbag scandal which has recently killed 8 people in the US and injured thousands others. What do you guys think? The IQS study may not truly indicate future reliability, but it's the most objective assessment of vehicle quality with no driver/external biases.
  22. Im looking for car to buy, and i want the nicest looking car for under 10000$ I dont care if the motor is big and have a lot of horse powers, it just have to look good. it could also be a car that i could modify, and in that way make it look good.

    Just a question

    so um, my mom has a chrystler right now, and she was wondering what the most affordable car that she could get that has bucket seats(7 seats) and maybe around a 2011-2014 model. Does anyone know or can maybe give me a list of cars that meet those requirements? thanks , btw it can be in any price range....she usually buys used.... but if its cheap enough, she may let me have her old car, which would be awesome since i dont own one.
