I just want to come out in support of Genesis. If these had been around when I was purchasing my Q7, I would have pulled the trigger in a heartbeat. I loved my G80. It never had a problem, and it was a perfect freeway machine. Read more

Michelin TRX was a high performance tire from the 70's. These were designed to be superior compared to the regular tires. Their most notable difference to the regular tires was their metric wheel sizing. So they required special sized wheels (diameters 315, 340, 365, 390 and 415 mm). Wikipedia:

Well, at one point in my life I was ‘blessed’ with a ‘91 Escort wagon. There was a period of a year and a half where I replaced the heater core 10 times. Not kidding. I had three cores in rotation, and each time I took one out, my uncle would resolder it back together. I had bought all three new, but intentionally Read more

Yup. Call me a commie all day long if you like, but in a country as rich as this one every single person should have access to the basic necessities of life. That means food, water, shelter, education, healthcare, and mobility. Doesn’t have to be fancy, but nobody should be hungry, thirsty, homeless, ignorant, sick, Read more

Well, you have to take the dash half apart to change out the heater core in a Fox body Mustang. Ask me how I know. I think book was around 10 hours.

You can’t think that way when you’re dealing with an engine cooling system.

I always make it a point to replace my water pump, thermostat, fan clutch, and any hoses when I buy a vehicle with an unknown service history. 

A failure of any of those components could yield disaster, and quickly (okay, the bad fan clutch Read more

To be fair, often the engineer knew about it and made it as good as they could, but the program manager/person with the money told them it was good enough. Read more

I used to have a ‘98 Sebring JXi (my wife’s car). I changed a battery in it once. Removing the wheel was the easy part; there is next to no space in the battery compartment and you have to get it lined up just right in order to slide it home.

I’m not a professional mechanic, but when we had my wife’s ‘98 Sebring JXi I invented new curse words almost every time I wrenched on it.  At one time I remarked that if I ever met the designer of that car, I would kick him in the crotch so hard his testicles would leave an exit wound.

Please give us a poll to vote on writer submissions so we can figure out how many people have kids that are about to start driving but also need to dig a trench and are also hopefully immune to tetanus.

I’ve changed one of those batteries on my brother’s car. I was like, “sure let’s swap out your battery, I can do that”. He brings it over, then tells me the wheel needs to be removed to get to the battery. Took us about two hours to swap the battery. I’ve never had to deal with so much bodywork while changing out a Read more

Most of those will probably still at least run with minimal work, air cooled engines seem to be fairly tolerant of neglect. Though, I'm sure the cars will crumble to dust if you actually tried to move them
