It's getting to the point where I'm in need of using my laptop in my car and soon I will also require a printer/scanner. Wondering if anyone on here has gone down this road? I'm guessing an inverter for the printer and or scanner should suffice. Thoughts?

used car

So non-dealer used car places, are they all chop shop, salvage, etc. type places? Just looking around for a late 2000s Rav4 and there seems to be decent deals out there from a variety of used independent dealers all over Ontario. But with ads like "just arrived", what's the catch on these places? Ar...

If you have about 5-6 months of driving history and you scrape your car against a pillar so that it leaves severe paint marring (down to the metal) and metal deformation on a roughly a 0.5 square foot section of a door edge, and 0.5 square foot section on the rear quarter panel,...

Took my Mazda3 there for an oil change. Picked up the car and it's making the typical grunting sound that an exhaust makes. Pretty upset about it. Just wanted to know what my options are when I call them tomorrow morning and complain about it. Anything I can do? I guess legally I can't, coz I have n...

civic

Negotiated a nice lease price for my parents on a 2017 civic ex. 4 year lease and first 3 years are covered 100% and the 4th year only limited to coverage. The car has all the cameras everywhere and if one of those things were to go down in the 4th year I see they are pricey to fix. Dealer offered $...

I have a wheel that apparently has a bend in it. Not obvious to the naked eye but it shows up on a balancer and seems to cause noise/vibration at highway speeds. Who does the RFD community recommend these days for getting a wheel straightened out? A couple names seem to come up on Google: Lepracon U...

I have a 2013 Hyundai Elantra with 80k on it. Bought oil for life with the car.

As in they won't know enough about the...

So I got a ticket for an illegal u-turn yesterday. FYI - I am guilty, I didn't see the sign, I don't drive much and didn't know the area. However I noticed that the cop missed the day off the date - he wrote 2017/01/blank. Does this mean it's an invalid ticket? Unfortunately I also received a ticket...
