I was informed that I was not at fault as I was going straight, and a car making a right turn peaked and we collided. Now after the police reports, I was told to tow my car as the right headlight and bumpe...

my friend from London UK will drive a road trip for about one week from Tor to kingston, ottawa, montreal. She asked me to find a premium SUV car for rent like BMW, Acura, LExus or the like. But when searching, the only suv i have is RAV4 or Dodge, or CR-V. Do you know where to get those?

I have noticed that the engine seems to have more play than what I used to during acceleration and suspect that the motor mounts may be getting worn replacement. What would it cost to change them using the original parts on a 2012 Camry 4 Cyl? I am not very handy so comments like "watch a youtube vi...

I'm looking to get my hood repainted or replaced and paint to match my factory paint. I've talked to 2 people so far and they both advise me to get a new hood instead of a repaint.

used car

I'm pretty sure what people are going to say, but browsing ads and found a 2013 Audi A8 for sale. Clean carproof, but the rear image of the car shows only the Audi rings, no A8, no 3.0T where they should be located. Usually for me that's a sign the car has been rear ended and re-painted. Thoughts?

Like the subject line says: when buying used - is it too much to ask to have a mechanic look at the vehicle? I found 3 vehicles on Kijiji this week that I was interested in.
