    If manufacturers could ever come out with a sub-$20k EV with a 150 mile single-charge range, I'd buy one in a second. But I simply can't spend 1-2 hours 'refueling' an EV when I can refuel my Mirage...

    I have long believed that most 'car guys' simply can't wrap their minds around the idea that there are people in this world who just don't care very much about cars.

    I know lots of these people. ...

    Most exhaust pipe and muffler rot occurs from the inside out, with exhaust gases combining with water vapor to create a weak sulfuric acid. With today's ultra low sulfur fuels it isn't as much of a...

    Daewoo certainly isn't dead. GM bought them when they went bankrupt, and they are now known as "GM Korea". Daewoo America closed up shop in 2002.

    For some reason, the Mirage hatch ALWAYS seems to be the last model to hit the lots for the new model year.

    Around 2000-2001, my buddy was looking for a new car. We were at the local auto mall near closing time. It was after dark, and in the dead of winter. We rolled onto the Daewoo lot as a couple of...

    Bill the town, find a replacement at a junkyard. It will probably even come with an Enasave. Take it to a tire shop and have the TPMS sensor either swapped or reprogrammed. Keep the old tire as a...

    It is 60,000. :)

    I did mine at just a shade over 60k, and it didn't look like it even needed it. That made me pretty complacent about doing it again at 120k. I am at at 129k now, and will...

    This is absolutely correct. How tall the tire is versus how tall the wheel is matters very little as long as the overall height of the tire/wheel assembly is basically the same.

    The first thing I tell people to do in this situation is try their headlights, as the headlights will draw an amount of power similar to the power draw of the starter. This will allow you to get an...

    Exactly what I was thinking. I had to replace mine, but for the opposite reason. The gauge would read one or two bars...as the engine was running dry and sputtering to a halt.

    Good functioning wipers are pretty important here, as it rains 2/3rds of the year.

    I gave up on 'premium' wiper blades years ago after I had an expensive Bosch blade literally fall apart and come...

    The passenger side lock on FAST key cars is there in case the key fob battery dies. There is a metal key contained within the fob. I have to assume the driver's side keyhole on non-FAST key cars...

    Yep, you can already order these kits from Mitsubishi. I did. Kits aren't cheap, though, and are somewhat tedious to install.
