      I bought one that way in December. Didn't check the title when I test drive it, and then found out after I took the bus 3 hours to go pick it up that it was 1) a rebuilt title and 2)he had never...

      I'm in Nova Scotia and got some quotes when I was looking at '80s sports cars. Seemed to be around $200 for 15k agreed value no matter which car I put in.

      That's funny, because I hate how wide my '09 Civic turns compared to my '00 Impala (w-body). The Impala could turn in 3 lanes easily, the Civic needs 4.

      My Civic hybrid uses the high voltage battery. The last time I started it before the battery got replaced it used the 12v and the noise startled me. They use the electric motor instead of a starter...

      Most hybrids use the electric motor and the high voltage batteries to start the engine normally. At least some of them do have a backup starter that uses a 12v starter /the 12v battery, but that's...

      Don't assume that because you have home and auto combined that it is the best deal.

      My '09 Civic original battery lasted 120k kms. The car had sat for 6 months before I bought it, so that was kinda expected. Warranty cost including labour, diagnostics and tax was a hair under $8000....

      Here it's book or actual, whichever is higher. They will charge you for amount paid when you register it and then look it up later and send you a bill. If you disagree, you have to get an appraisal. ...

      A friend once disputed a speeding ticket on the grounds that his name was very wrong on it. The judge's only question was something like "if it wasn't you, how come you have the ticket?" I'm...

      How wide are your 17's? If they are right sized for a 205 or 215 I'd go that way. If they are better suited to a 225 or wider, you'll have to go that way.

      I thought this would be dumb. Searched province wide and got a Liberty Diesel followed by a Peruvian Supercar. Searched the city and hello!

      I get a discount for snow tires. I also get one for driving a hybrid. Which kinda makes sense for my Civic, but none for say a Prius. How are they calculating that discount?

      I was told that the company in NB that made the fiberglass bodies for these is now part of the fiberglass pipe company I work for. Sorry, they don't still make spares :D

      I've started my car just fine at -40C. Didn't sound happy, but started just fine. That's the coldest I've ever tried.
      Some of the things I've learned about driving in the cold are:

      I just picked up my own E36 a few weeks ago. I was shopping 944's, E30s and a few other similar cars. Turns out I don't really fit in an E30 with a helmet on. I do autocross, and am planning on doing...

      I've heard other hybrid owners online mention the same thing. It's like driving into a strong headwind all the time. It gets even worse with snow tires. I went from 5L/100km (47mpg) when I bought...

      Try and find a better performing tire that is also LRR, or a tire with a 30 day satisfaction guarantee. An Si rear sway bar helped the highway stability too. If I didn't drive 80kms each way to...
