    I ran across this article and thought it might save someone some money. The warranty fliers many of us get in the mail are a scam, so do your homework on these companies so you don't get ripped off. After 2-year fight, she got a $3,000 refund - The Red Tape Chronicles -

    :cheer4: I was thinking while I was getting my oil changed today, is this Frugal? I got the synthetic, I want my vehicle to last awhile, so my cost was $63. Then I used a $10 coupon to bring my cost down to $53. Plus I got a free car wash. This was done at a Jiffy-Hoffman, in upstate NY. I...

    As of today we are now the new owners of a 2005 GMC Yukon. It's a purty purty blue green with gray interior and fully loaded. I can't wait to take it for a drive when I go get papers in the morning.:yippee: Cat

    I recently returned my leased car and bought a bus pass. I live in a very urban area, and work downtown, so this was more financially responsible to do until we find we can actually afford a car. The only problem I'm having is keeping my grocery budget under wraps. When I had a car, I would...

    How do you keep your vehicle? Is it nice and tidy or does it look like you live in it? Mine is nice and tidy. I have a couple friends that have cars that are full of clutter. If more than one person rides with them they have to move stuff over before anyone can get in. Why would anyone need to...

    I cleaned my car really good yesterday, It was way past due for a cleaning. Which got me to thinking….How often does everyone clean their vehicles? I would say I clean mine about every 2 months. It feels so good to get into a clean car!!

    Does anyone know how the insurance works when the car is totaled and you have a loan? Do they pay only the amount that the car is worth or do they pay the loan off? I don't know how this works. I called insurance comp Saturday and the local office will be calling me today to follow up with...

    I need some objective BTDT suggestions on this topic. DH's truck, which is now 14 years old with 150k+ miles on it, has apparently died (cracked head, from the symptoms). So now we're having to decide whether we'll be worse off repairing the truck, or buying another vehicle. The truck is a...

    I'm a non-driver and dh a long distance truck driver is rarely home to drive his car, so we don't spend much on gas for the car each month. He usually fills up once a month for less than $40. We get 10 cents off a gallon of gas for every $50 we spend at the local grocery store. Our last receipt...

    Well.. we're going to need a bigger vehicle. WE have an alero right now and when this new baby comes there will be 5 of us (two in car seats) We can't get a new car right now.. but will probably do so at tax time. We will get back probably about $4000-5000 - I haven't figured it up yet (dh...

    Right now we have a 2006 Nissan truck. It gets about 20mpg. Our monthly payment is $404.00. I have been considering trying to sell it (Blue Book value puts it at $21,000 and we owe $19,000 -thanks to paying extra) and buying a cheaper car that gets better gas mileage. Something that we could...

    Or does your dh/so do that. I have in bits and pieces. When it comes to changing the time on the radio, looking to see what size tires we need and the different types of oil. Otherwise dh does most of the reading.

    Yup with no problems.

    Yes, except I think I'd have a hard time getting the nuts off. They tighten them so tight when you get new tires put on.
