      Did you try searching local junkyards through car-part.com? I think the right price for good used OEM ones is about $40-50 per wheel. New OEM ones are available for $91 shipped:...

      I think you have some valid points, but it's not just about the availability of jobs. Let's take me as an example. I'm actually doing very well financially; more so than almost everyone my age that I...

      According to the diagram, it looks like the ALT-S fuse, and the entire length of the white wire from that fuse to the alternator, should be hot at all times. Meaning even if the key is off, if you...

      Actually, I think he's been (for a politician) relatively upfront about the fact that he's going to be raising taxes on more than just the 1%. I think some people on the right are a little...

      I think if you take polling data literally, it's safe to say that Bernie is unpopular with minorities. But that unpopularity may turn out to be a mile wide and an inch deep. It may just be...

      With these Iowa and NH results, I think things are about to get even more interesting. Sanders didn't just win NH, he dominated. It's going to be hard for the Clinton campaign to dismiss that as...

      I think Autoblog has the best summary of this issue so far, including a response from the EPA:

      I don't have any leads for you, but I'm happy to see someone in my age group take an interest in an obscure '80s car. We need to save some of this stuff before it's all gone. I don't have personal...

      Not according to all the information I can find. I'm not too familiar with the Series III, but apparently it switched back to an aluminum intake. The ones with the plastic intakes were the ones with...

      I think the Series II 3800 (starting around 1996) was the one with the intake problems. The Series III was the final generation from about 2005-08.

      My 1990 Olds has an LN3 3800 with a one-piece...

      Same here, I could take pics of a few A-bodies on the road in a half-hour drive around here. They really are a tough design, almost the American equivalent of a Lada or something. Parts are cheap,...

      Well, I think there's a reason why the Soul has been successful. They managed to make it cheap enough and cool enough to win over American buyers. A true MPV like this Lada has more usable cargo...

      The problem with the 500L is they're trying to sell it as a premium product, putting it up against RAV4s and CR-Vs in pricing. I'm thinking of maybe an Indian or Chinese (or Russian...) automaker...

      I love this kind of stuff. In a rational world, this would be the most popular vehicle form-factor on the market. All the benefits of a small crossover, with no compromises in usability caused by...

      If they decide to rebrand the iA as a Yaris Sedan, maybe they'll try to revitalize the whole Yaris line in the US...possibly by replacing the hatch version with a Mazda as well. I've been puzzled by...

      The Iowa results are really making things interesting, if you start to play out the possibilities. Rubio's strength should be keeping the Dem strategists awake at night. I think a Sanders vs. Rubio...

      Thanks for going to this level of detail. If I understand you correctly, you're saying that each automaker's 2025 target was actually set in stone in 2010. Let's think for a minute about what that...

      What I'm asking is, is it even a CAFE violation at all, if you miss the 54.5 MPG average but are compliant within the tiers where you actually sell vehicles? I got the impression that the tiers were...
