      It's because of mechanical precession. Modern lugnuts are tapered to prevent this.





      Same reason as lug nuts - has nothing to do with friction but rather due to the radial forces of a round...

      I think there is no way that the money will only be good for another VW. That's a trade-in, not a buy-back. Most VW buyers bought their cars because with the TDI it was a vehicle with a unique set of...

      Why will they be forced into a car payment? The idea is they'd take the buyback amount and wait for it, buy something else. Whether that something else is more expensive and requires a car payment is...

      Oh, I'm well aware of the differences. That might of applied to a rather base model C5 but certainly not to the Allroad. Not to mention few if any of the issues I had with my S4 were engine...

      Coming from a W8 owner. Of course! :D

      Seriously though. There are a number of other European wagons of that vintage from Volvo, BMW, et. al that meet the requirements and are significantly more...

      Yup. This is why I love Volvo. They actually consider how a car will be serviced when designing it. On the XC90 it's two pins per side. :D

      15 years ago or so my friends and I got a flat tire somewhere in TX and stopped in to one of these places - I think it was Rent a Tire like above. We never even considered that there was such a...

      I bought the Topsider based on a recommendation in another thread like this here recently and have been very happy with it. Yes, you still have to put the car up to pull the filter on most cars...

      I actually hope that Volvo continues to be profitable as a niche brand. Nearly every other company has turned into a virtual carbon-copy where someone who doesn't follow the industry closely can...

      As I understand it, the casing cannot contain the propellant indefinitely as it will very slowly leak out over time. That's why they expire. Generally, though, it seems the manufacturer's are very...

      There's a ragged Volvo 740 wagon parked on my street with Antique VA plates. In NY there are strict limits on how and where you can drive a vehicle with historic plates. Not elsewhere?

      Expenditures like this typically happen because the maintenance has been neglected for so long that it all comes due in a big bunch. With a funded 'car' account, you'd have money available to do...

      Yes, an aging vehicle needs some maintenance. Few will need hundreds of dollars a month, thousands of dollars a year, year over year which is what you get with a lease or car payment. For someone...

      Leasing may feel more appealing because it's a fixed amount per month, but let's say she leases something for $200/month everything included - which would be pretty good in non-TCL world. (well...

      As irritating as it is to have to deal with any of this over a relatively little amount of money per month, I'd be much more peeved that the dealer was treating me this way, and I'd be really tempted...

      What kind of connection do they provide at what kind of output? The standard J-1772 charger will only do 25mph charge. Are compatible DC-chargers widely available?
