      Also for those in the Midwest who aren't Costco members, you can get a similarly good deal this Friday and Saturday at Discount Tire. In addition to the $70 Michelin rebate, they are running their...

      And what could *possibly* go wrong with the F-150 launch to delay the Edge further? :D

      You would actually be a good candidate for the Progressive Snapshot program. It doesn't care about acceleration, only hard braking. By hard braking, I mean a deceleration rate of 7 mi/hr2 rather than...

      Get a highly rated car seat, and don't drive like an asshat. Mazda2 and the Fit are fine, both did reasonably well in the IIHS moderate offset test and side impact test. If you were going to get a...

      Mfgs are under a huge amount of pressure from NHTSA to get every single car on the road repaired if a recall is issued. Hence their tactic of withholding payment. As such, call Hyundai corporate,...

      Probably cost major $, yes? I've read it's often a $3k repair done thoroughly. I don't love the car enough to spend that kind of money.

      Exactly, this is corrosion perforation rather than surface rust, and at a very critical part of the body no less. The hole is about 4 inches across now. I suppose I could use some bondo, but it's a...

      Our Escape is about to get unreasonable. It's developing a giant rust hole by the passenger side rear shock tower. This was picture was six months ago and it's gotten worse over the summer. I'm no...
