Really? Do pickup truck owners drive them 300-400 miles per day? If not, then recharging at home or the workplace overnight while you and everyone else is sleeping is what the plan is. That way, you leave home every morning with a “full tank”.

The factory code was put in the owner’s manual. If you don’t have that, you have to ask on a forum where the code is. On my Grand Marquis, it is labeled on the driver’s door control module.  Some, depending on the year, had it on one of the trunk hinges.  Once you find the code, you can program up to 4 or 5 of your Read more

When I drove cab, the usual “secret spot” was on TOP of the left-rear tire. Nobody could see it. Only people who knew it was there could find it and use it.

Almost right. The default code is set at the factory, not by the first owner. You can program your own 5 digit code. You can also delete them (except the factory code, which will never erase or change.

Loved the article, Raphael! I especially loved the timing of it. I just bought a 2018 Rav4 this past Tuesday. And yes, now that I’m driving one, I’m seeing them all over the place too.

Not a ‘63.  We used to have a ‘63 Comet convertible back in the day, and it didn’t have the huge fins in the back.  My guess was ‘60 thru ‘62, but I’m too lazy to look at a bazillion pictures to be sure.

This is what I paid yesterday,  just down the road from my house. $1.199 but with a car wash, it drops to $1.099 (lets just cut the bullshit and call it $1.10, ok?).

I think it’s only the signal lamps that have to be on a non-moving surface so the signals and 4-ways can be seen if the hatch is up, such as while changing a tire on the shoulder.

The Tiguan has been at the top of my ‘short list’ for a long time, and in my research, I found there is a part number that you can see from the outside (though not easily) and that part number will tell you if the tensioner repair has been done, or not.  A little research (go to the Vortex) should bring it up.
