  1. I have a 2006 Chevrolet HHR and the passenger back wheel is bent inwards...does anyone know how I can fix this? It looks like 1-2" inwards, no wheel damage and no subframe or lower control arm damage. I replaced the back wheels with the front ones to check if it made a difference, it didnt. It makes a weird rubbing sound when turning to the left only, not when going straight and not when turning to the right. As if the wheel was scraping metal. My steering wheel is off a bit too, 15 degrees clock wise. I installed new tie rod ends and did the front alignment. It wont allow me to add pictures over .98mb (my 1 picture is 6 mb)
  2. I was reading (Read here) about The Technology behind the 2015 Lexus NX Models and personally I think they did a good job with the series. What do you think of the new Lexus crossover the NX series?
  3. Hi, my name is Jack and I have just turned 17 and am going to be buying a car soon. I am considering either a VW Golf or Mitsubishi Colt (I'm not sure which just yet). When I get a car I would love to modify it. However, I'm struggling to find a job to pay for parts, so whilst I look for one I'm trying to make a little money to go towards the modifications. I just set up this store on redbubble.com called Jaxx Apparel (I'll attach a link) and it would be great if you saw this and bought something from the store so I can raise enough for a few mods! Right now it is just JDM car designs on there but if you would like to suggest something that isn't on the store please go ahead and do so and I may add a design based on your suggestion. There are all sorts of products ranging from T-shirts to stickers to shower curtains 😂. If this works I might make an Instagram page dedicated to my journey. Also if anyone is willing to help me in improving my understanding of cars please let me know and I'll add you on Instagram or something. Thanks for reading and I hope you consider helping me out.😁 Some examples of what the store offers are attached. Store Adress: http://www.redbubble.com/people/jaxxapparel
  4. There is no need to repeat the importance of tire pressure monitor sensor(TPMS), it has been a mandatory standard for years. So it would save a lot of time and money if we could replace the sensor on our own. The first thing I want to emphasize is that replace sensors us not purely mechanic, just disassemble and install it. The sensor transmit data to ECU so a very important step is let ECU recognize sensors in the correct position. The car in this case is Lexus 2014, and replace the front right sensor. Tons of car tools come with TPMS function can do this, the tool I use to sensor matching is Topdon Artipad. Steps: 1. Ignition ON 2. Toyota V48.50 3. Chosse “16 PIN OBD(European and other) 4. Auto scan 5. In my case, I choose ES250, before 2014 6. System select-->chassis-->TPMS 7. Read live data-->manual 8. Select all registered ID, so we only read the live data from those sensors. 9. And the next page on screen is actually the ID for those sensors. I would recommend take a photo or screenshot, we will use that later. 10. Go back to Special functions--->auto scan--> mark registration 11. This car need to input 5 tire sensors’ ID, input the ID one by one, use the photo you took before if you can remember the ID, the new sensor ID is print on the sensor. 12. Tap OK after all are input, and go to the live data to confirm the new IDs. When you register new sensors in ECU, you can check tire pressure data by indicator or ECU display.

  6. I drive a lexus rx 300 1999 SUV with 160000 miles..when it was purchased there was always a transmission sensor problem but it has driven well until recently. Last December it started to buck while in drive and this week it happened again after driving for 20 minutes. It felt so bad on the car I had it towed to the mechanic. The tow guy put the car in neutral and I picked the car back up the following day. I was told the reverse was gone but I would be able to use other gears. The mechanic also drained fuilds out and refilled. The engine runs good and I checked the transmission fluid level before pulling off. It indicated a pink color and on the cool line. When I pulled off the tires did seem to rub a little. I reached 3 blocks with no bucking before the car just stop moving. None of the gears responded. I remember hearing crackle and loose sounds on and off while driving the 3 blocks. I called for a tow truck and when he tried putting the car in neutral it did not respond. He tried going forward and the car drove backwards as well. He said my transmission locked and it will not be possible to tow. With effort we were able to tow home. Is this common?????? Did my transmission just randomly fail?? What are the indication of a failing transmission ?
  7. I found a car on Copart that is said to have only Hail damage. I checked the auto check that was provided and hail was nowhere to be found. Also no other damage. I then ran a Carfax and it came back with structural damage but no accidents. This is the line of the carfax. Damage reported Structural damage reported Damage to front Damage to left rear Damage to right rear Damage to left front Damage to right front Damage to rear Damage to left side Damage to right side Can hail cause structural? This was all from the same day. The pictures of the car look brand new. I want to get some other input from other people. I have attached the Copart link.

  9. I have a simplest question for all of you. Can anyone here answer that why are not automakers challenging Tesla?
  10. Hi I desperately need help choosing between 5 cars. First off. gas mileage and the price of the vehicle itself isn't a factor. Interior materials and things like that aren't issues for me either. However reliability and sportiness/power do matter to me. I have done my research and found 5 seemingly reliable cars/trucks that are sporty and that I like very much! PROBLEM IS... I CANT CHOOSE WHICH ONE TO BUY! I like how all of them drive and I like how all of them look! Each one has a major selling point to me and here they are: LEXUS IS300: tiptronic with sport mode and paddle shifting buttons that are fun to use. Also reliability from the 2jz engine. 0-60 in 7.4 seconds isn't bad at all. PONTIAC GRAND PRIX GTP SUPERCHARGED: LOVE LOVE LOVE the supercharger whine! The boost is addicting. Performance shift mode. I personally love how the car looks! 0-60 in 6.6 seconds. MAZDA 6s: nice reliable 3.0L V6 with the 5-speed shiftable automatic! Beautiful blue color with spoiler and "body kit" a website says 0-60 in 6.3 seconds. Infiniti G35 sedan: I like the fact that this car is essentially a Nissan 350z in a dress... 0-60 in 6.1 seconds Chevrolet Trailblazer: I understand that this is an oddball based on the group just given, however... This one is just a feel thing I've always liked the look and feel of the trailblazers but I've been looking more for a sporty car. 0-60 in 7.6 seconds. Any help would be appreciated! I just need someone's opinion who won't say "the Lexus because it's a nicer car" I would appreciate some good solid reasons based in reliability and performance. Thanks again! -Alex

  13. Hi, My dad's looking at Lexus SUVs for around $15k (dealer price), but around that price you can only find older 2004-2006 SUVs with 130k+ mileage here in Alabama whereas for the same price you could get a 50k mileage 2011 RAV4, CRV, or other Honda/Toyota SUVs. But he still thinks that even older Lexus SUVs will still have better reliability, will last longer with less maintenance, have better features, have better parts like engine/transmission/suspension/etc than newer Toyota/Honda SUVs. How can I convince him otherwise? Like, are there any good sites/resources/articles with comparisons or sites where I can get detailed car specs as proof? Or am I wrong here, and older Lexus SUVs actually are better buys than newer Toyota/Honda SUVs at the same price?
  14. hey guys im new here and i wanted some peoples opinions on these 3 cars! so i planned on getting a salvage title acura mdx (07-), lexus isF(08-), mustang gt(11-) so which one does everybody think i should get? thanks for the help!
  15. I'm going to get my first car soon and I'm looking for either a BMW, Honda, Lexus, or Mazda and I wanted to know which years each company has had its best year and its worst year. From the years of 1996 - 2001, so I can decide which car I want to pick. All feedback is appreciated.
  16. I don't know what it is but i'm really liking the new styling from Lexus. Especially in the new NX Crossover: http://www.wheelsonedge.com/Article/72/Theres-A-First-For-Everything--2015-Lexus-NX What do you think?
