  • Why are people so against leather seats in a car?

    I seriously don't understand why people hate leather so much. I often hear these things. -"It smells like old shoes." -"It holds smells." -"Too hot in the summer on too cold in the winter." -"They're difficult to maintain." -"They don't last." -"They stain easily." The majority of these facts are wrong. A couple are opinions. I've heard these things and none of them make any sense at all. I have 2 cars with cloth seats and never again. If I so much as look at them the wrong way, they become stained. Leather is a lot easier to care for if it's kept up on (clearing them off and conditioning). Why do people hate leather so much?

  • Will my car survive a short road trip?

    Best answer: I am 71 years of age. Asking a 190K mile old car to go 60 miles more is like asking me to live 8 days more longer.
    Ask me next week, if I respond, your car will probably last 60 miles also.

    Steady 55 mph highway is being gentle on a car. Stop and go is the killer.

  • Clutch safety switch question?

    When did this become mandatory, or should I say when did it start being installed on every standard transmission vehicle from the factory? Also, how does it work? I don't mean like it stops the car from starting that's obvious. What does it disable? Does it stop fuel from going to the engine? Does it... show more
    When did this become mandatory, or should I say when did it start being installed on every standard transmission vehicle from the factory? Also, how does it work? I don't mean like it stops the car from starting that's obvious. What does it disable? Does it stop fuel from going to the engine? Does it disable the ignition system (spark)? I've seen vehicles crank over perfectly fine without the clutch pushed in, on older vehicles. But never knew what exactly is disabled to prevent the vehicle from starting.

    I was driving yesterday, the roads were HORRIBLE! I was taking my time and as I was coming down a slight hill, a car pulled out in front of me. Thankfully I was driving slow enough that it wasn t a big deal. Then all the sudden we are still on the hill and he stops to turn on a side street. I was slipping and I knee I would hit him I could not stop in time. So I saw that the other side of the road was clear and I went around him. I know not a smart move. But it was fine. But idk if the car behind me hit the car I was trying to avoid. If they did, is it my fault?? Idk if there was an accident I slowed down but I couldn t tell. If they have my plate number, I m afraid I might have a warrant for my arrest for leaving the scene of an accident (if one happened) answers please ?

  • Car was hit in a parking lot, should I contact my insurance?

    Best answer: There's no way even your insurance agent could figure that one out, however because it was something that happened in the parking lot that wasn't your fault it probably won't increase much if anything at all. Insurance companies are more concerned about things that make you look like a riskier driver... show more

Insurance companies are more concerned about things that make you look like a riskier driver for the future. Don't worry about any type of increase. Get your bumper fixed.

    Hi everyone, how are you? Recently I bought an imported Morgan 3-wheeler at an auction for a pretty fair price. The only issue is that my license plates won't fit on the front of the car as UK plates are very wide, whereas US ones are not so much. What could I do? Do I have to get custom plates made, or am I out of luck. I live in Ohio if that helps anything. I'm also NOT going to drill holes for new US plates as it would ruin the car's value. I just wanted to legally drive my new car around.
