      Ok. Then I'd just shop around, then undercut it buy 10-20% (assuming you aren't buying supplies). I used to detail, but one year was for a dealer (ie. no customer pay, so no idea of rate. I got...

      The guys doing it get minimum. It really depends on your area. Check the sites of local detailers, call them for quotes, or check your local craigslist and get the going rate. If you're willing to...

      Yeah, I think you're right about this. I'm 280 (and dropping) and the bolsters on my seat bottoms are pretty much flat after just under 3 years. There is also a dent on the window frame where my...

      My first battery died at just under 80k miles. The 2nd one is now noticeably worse than when it was installed, and I am at about 137k miles.

      I know you said below that that you aren't interested in the Hondas anymore, but I found a brochure that says 12 ft^3 for the regular sedan and 10ft^3 for the hybrid. That's 340L vs 285L.

      Make sure you like the seats. I didn't take a long enough test drive, and now both my fiancée and I hate the sport seats. Most uncomfortable car seats I've ever been in (for me anyway). I'm...

      I always figured VW did well up here because of the rust warranty. I know very few people who end of life a vehicle for mechanical failure. It is always rust. VW has a very long rust warranty (12...

      Go test drive a USED CRZ. Get the battery low (shouldn't be hard). Turn on the AC. Now try to accelerate and merge going up hill. If you can handle that, go ahead and buy one. Also, do a quick...

      This is why I got rid of it. I spend 2 hrs a day in the car, and have 3 local radio stations. The sound quality was so bad I decided I would rather listen to Lady Gaga for free on FM than pay for...

      My '09 Civic has none of the (in wheel anyway) hardware for the TPMS. I think there is a spot in the cluster for it, but no bulb. We got heated mirrors instead, per the owner's manual. Makes it way...

      Just buy 3 more classic Ferraris with different plates. Or buy 3 different plates.

      The problem with the 8th gen Hybrids, and it may happen to the 9ths soon enough, is that 0-60 is possible around 10 seconds only WITH A FULL BATTERY. Most of the time, especially with the AC on you...

      When mine was done under warranty, the part cost was $6500 and 4 hours labour. I believe you can find refurb packs for around $2-3k if you avoid the dealer though.

      They handle well (like a...
