Re: Oil change

Thanks, guys! That does clear it up a bit. Our last car was an '07 Corolla, and the light came on every 4,500 miles to change the oil. I just went with that, as it was easy.

I like Paul's idea, I think I'll change it every 5,000 just to [more]

Oil change

My wife and I just bought a new (to us!) 2003 Hyundai Sonata with a 2.7L engine. Reading the owner's manual, it appears that the oil only needs to be changed every 7,500 mikes or 6 months. That seems like a lot to me- what do you guys think? [more]

Old gas

I have about a half gallon of oil/gas mix for my weedwackers and chainsaw, but it is about 2 years old. I am not sure where I would have to dispose of it, but would it do much harm to simply dump it into my truck's tank? It's about a 16 gallon [more]

Re: Car accident

I heard back from my claims adjuster on this, and he said we should call the other company as it would speed up their processing and maybe get our deductible reimbursed faster.

It was explained to me at the beginning that we had to pay our [more]

Re: Car accident

In other words, they are trying to figure out if we are going to sue?

The thought hasn't even crossed our minds, to be honest. No one was hurt, our insurance paid up pretty quickly and we had rental coverage, so we weren't terribly [more]

Car accident

Hi all-

My wife was in an accident a few weeks ago, where the other driver rear ended her and totaled her car. We have since been paid for our car and our claim is settled. However, we have received a phone call and a letter asking us to [more]

Re: Need a car

We finally settled on an '03 Hyundai Sonata with 78K miles- it's a pretty sweet ride, no issues that I can see/feel except that the brake pedal seems to be a little hard. My wife loves it, and we got it cheap enough that I had some cash leftover from [more]

Re: Need a car

I thought so too, but he said he had just listed it and he wanted to see if he got any better offers, which I don't blame him for. I just told him that I would continue to search for other cars as we need one pretty soon, and left it at that. [more]

Re: Need a car

It was an ok car- it had a clicking noise in the dash when we turned the AC off, and I called my mechanic who told me it was probably the motor on one of the doors that controlled air flow direction. I offered the guy $5K, but he balked and said he'd [more]

Thank you all, you've given me stuff to think about. Qazulight, I hadn't even thought of the Vibe, but what you say makes sense. After a quick perusal on Craiglsist, I came across this:

Anyone here make it before? Was it tough to do?

I believe you have to have wine bottles to put it in, but I am not set up to do wine. Can you do it in beer bottles?

My sister recommends I use Carsense, although she herself never has.... I used to just browse Craigslist ads, but I want a little more assurance these days on what I'm getting...

Re: Gun Owners Refused Service in TX

That's surprising.

Not really, unless you are the type that feeds into stereotypes- like, people who own guns are violent, etc...
