  • Is it wrong to test drive cars with no intention to purchase?

    I have a new car so I don't need a new car but I want to go test drive the new Honda Accord, Civic and CR-V. Do you think it's wrong to waste the salesperson's time knowing I won't be buying anytime soon?

    I got a call from the car dealership that I got my car from. They said that they were giving me a call from the manager of the dealership, that he wanted to see about putting me in a newer car since ive had mine for over a year. The lady said that I have gotten into a better financial place and that they wanted to help me get into a car that has a lower payment or on that is the same payment. I told her what I wanted for a payment and she said that they could definitely get me into a car with that payment. 1st I dont know why she said that Im in a better financial place im going in debt with this car and for the last 7 months ive had to call the bank to make payment arrangements so that it dosent show up as a late payment. 2nd she was asking about my car and damages and make sure that there wasnt any body damange to my car and see if i had to replace the tiers. 3rd they should know that I cant trade in my car because I went to the dealership about 2 months ago to see about lowering my payment and they said that they couldn t help me because my car wasnt worth what I owe and they didn t have a car that would cover my cost. 4th she really wanted me to come in today but I wasnt able to and wanted to make sure that I could come in some time during the week I told her thursday and she said ok and kept making sure that I was going to come in to have the car looked at. something to me dosent seem right especially since they couldnt help me a few months ago.

  • Can my this 4 cylinder truck sustain these speeds or will it overheat the engine?

    Best answer: Overheat is a small problem. If it even happens. 2 things to know. Is it the long stroke or short stroke engine? If long stroke. 1/2 of red line rpm. Short stroke 2/3 rpm of red line. Over that is when you loose a timing belt. When that happens you can often view a rod end threw the side of the block. Or less... show more
    Best answer: Overheat is a small problem. If it even happens. 2 things to know. Is it the long stroke or short stroke engine? If long stroke. 1/2 of red line rpm. Short stroke 2/3 rpm of red line. Over that is when you loose a timing belt. When that happens you can often view a rod end threw the side of the block. Or less often a rod just lets loose. Then you look under the vehicle were the last oil is dripping from the pan to see it. But over heat normally happens when you are doing 2 to 3 mpr. Pulling a 10% or better rubble grade up a mountain side. In low gear. Coming down you check for brake overheat. Often it pays to stop & just let all cool off. Above 45 mpr you are into hard wind. Hard to over heat a vehicle above 45 mpr. Unless pump is out. Or no fluid in it.

  • Driving without car insurance?

    Best answer: If the car is registered, you must have insurance. If your insurance lapses and you do not turn in your tags, the DMV will fine you (doesn't matter if you don't even drive the car - you must be insured to register the car and have tags). There is no grace period. If you turn in the tags and drive only on... show more
    Best answer: If the car is registered, you must have insurance. If your insurance lapses and you do not turn in your tags, the DMV will fine you (doesn't matter if you don't even drive the car - you must be insured to register the car and have tags). There is no grace period. If you turn in the tags and drive only on your private property, then there are no fines, etc. since by turning in your tags, you basically unregister the car.

  • Is it hard to work on a classic car?

    Best answer: No they are not hard to work on- they need to be worked on more frequently! Take the ignition. It will have a coil, cap, rotor, spark plugs, wires and points. The points need to be cleaned and set every twelve thousand miles or less. Plugs need replaced or gaped every six thousand miles or so. The cap and rotor... show more
    Best answer: No they are not hard to work on- they need to be worked on more frequently!
    Take the ignition. It will have a coil, cap, rotor, spark plugs, wires and points. The points need to be cleaned and set every twelve thousand miles or less. Plugs need replaced or gaped every six thousand miles or so. The cap and rotor need checked and or replaced on a semiannual basis. The heads need to be done about every 50,000 miles.
    Then there is the carburetor- which needs adjusting every time the engine is timed. I forgot to mention they need to have the timing set any time the points are messed with.
    As for books- official service manuals can be bought. Often all the cars were covered by one single book. Motors Manual or Chilton's. These books can still be found at old book stores, e-bay and places specializing in classic cars.
    What I would suggest is checking out the on line ads at Hemmings Motor News. (https://www.hemmings.com/)
    Expect to pay 6000 dollars for a decent 56 ford (a lot more if it is a t-bird).

    Best answer: I am truly surprised Toyota would state such. The late model Camry 3.0L is neither a premium recommended or premium required vehicle.

    https://static.ed.edmunds-media.com/unversioned/img/pdf/premium.gasoline/premium.fuel.recommended.080817.pdf

    https://static.ed.edmunds-media.com/unversioned/img/pdf/premium.gasoline/premium.fuel.required.080817.pdf

    Even the larger 3.3L is not a HO engine. Simply not necessary.

  • Should I trade in a car that gets 50mpg for a gas guzzling SUV?

    I have a Honda Civic that gets incredible 50mpg on the freeway which I love since it doesn't need much gas and gets 600 miles to the tank.

    I have a Honda Civic that gets incredible 50mpg on the freeway which I love since it doesn't need much gas and gets 600 miles to the tank. But I hate that the interior is cramped especially since I travel often and end up sleeping in my car. The rear seat folds down but there's still not enough room to sleep comfortably. Forget about 2 people sleeping in it. So I am thinking about trading it in for an SUV with plenty of room that gets 20mpg. So do you think I should do it or keep the 50mpg car?

    Long story short I went to trade in my car (at a well known dealership [not crappy buy here pay here]) I was having my mom co sign but she was not with me during signing they told me no problem she can come whenever its convenient for her to sign. Well had the car for 5 days and it was having problems (was a used 2017) so I decided to take the car back since the deal was technically "not final" since my co signer had not signed they let me take my car back and took the new one back. Well then they give me a bill for $387 saying I have to pay this. It was from where they gave me car an inspection, oil change, etc as it was a new trade in the recieved and to see if it was ready to sell. I said can you tell me where I signed that I HAD TO PAY THIS? He says well no but someone has to pay it because we thought this was a done deal and we were ready to sell your old car so we put it thru this inspection etc this doesnt happen usually so someone has to pay it. I basically told them to give me some time and I would get back with them. Everyone says that its BS and they cant make me pay as they are the ones who jumped the gun to the inspection on my car. I just dont want them trying to take me to small claims court trying to get this money...Thoughts??
