    Put $800 down on my car back in November and since then Ive bee paying $225 a month for it with a total of $3600 (and a few couple bucks) im still paying it off but since Ive had its been nothing but problems and Ive been paying for all repairs I signed my papers as is with no warranty. Ive replaced back brake pads which I asked them to look at for me and they said they did and they were fine but these pads were so worn out that one of my rims is a brownish color from the intense metal on metal and with that I had to replace a rotor. Ive put in a new battery when I first bought it and the "service engine soon" light has been on since I bought it and the car lot said not to worry about it. The car broke down in May b/c the AC compressor had started smoking and eventually locked up I paid for a refurbished one and also bought the frion. My car broke down again yesterday b/c the alternator went out I had to buy another one. Well the "serving engine soon" light turned off after that was replaced. The tires are bald and I had to put the spare on a week ago b/c wires were showing in one of my tires and the spare is a bad tire it only holds air for one day at a time which is costing me money b/c the gas station closes to my house charges for air It had 2300 miles when I paid for it and now has 2700. I still owe a little over $1800 on it and kelley blue book says its only worth $1400. Does the lemon law or anything related involve this type of situation

  • Why do I have to turn my car key to 'ON' (click before start) to roll my power windows up or down?

    Best answer: My old car had auxillary controlled (key turned back toward you) windows, my current car had auxillary controlled windows when I first bought it but it's not like that anymore
    If that is true, the wiring for the AUX position has failed.

  • Should I have insurance pay for fixing the dent or should I have a friend help me fix it?

    Best answer: If you go the body shop route it's going to cost you $1000 out of pocket no matter what shop you take it to. So no need to get a bunch of estimates. Most any reputable shop is going to do a great job and it will look just like brand new car when they get done. You don't have to demand anything, they... show more
    Best answer: If you go the body shop route it's going to cost you $1000 out of pocket no matter what shop you take it to. So no need to get a bunch of estimates. Most any reputable shop is going to do a great job and it will look just like brand new car when they get done. You don't have to demand anything, they know how to do it right.

    If you let your buddy do the work, he may be able to improve the looks substantially or it may end up looking like crap. Either way you will still be able to detect that it was dented and repaired.

    What you should do depends on you and whats most important to you. Saving money or doing the job right.

    While driving home yesterday the battery light came on, i did not notice any loss in power. I had to run an errand so my wife stayed in the car with the car running not wanting to risk the car dying out on me. I was inside for about 10 minutes and when i came back out the air conditioner had stopped working, radio shut off windows wouldn't roll down, etc.. but the car was still running. When i excellerated the system picked back up and i was able to make it home with no problem. This morning I attempted to start the vehicle and it did not start, however all of the electrical turned on. i jumped the vehcile and everything seemed to be fine. i took it for a short drive up some hills and no light came on and all electrical work (music,windows,AC, phone charger) i figured i would give it a couple hours and see what happens after i drove it to see what happens with the battery. Does anybody have any suggestions?

    I love my Focus but it has had more than a couple issues, but it is ten years old and running higher mileage. I did buy a Focus because they have a reputation for running longer than other cars ( in general comparison). Recently it deaccelarated while I was driving it. My mechanic asked me to take it to the dealer because my coils were full of oil..so the coils have to be replaced and a cover gasket...grand total $1,100 to fix. Is it worth fixing or should I get a new car? This is a pretty penny to me.

  • Is it bad to leave your car in reverse?

    Best answer: I think some answerers are misunderstanding what you are asking. Or I am. With your engine off, you turn the ignition switch to on, but you do not start the vehicle. Then you put the automatic transmission in reverse, to make the back up (reversing) lights illuminate. You also engage your parking brake. If you... show more
    Best answer: I think some answerers are misunderstanding what you are asking. Or I am.

    With your engine off, you turn the ignition switch to on, but you do not start the vehicle. Then you put the automatic transmission in reverse, to make the back up (reversing) lights illuminate. You also engage your parking brake.

    If you are on truly level ground, your vehicle won't roll or move.

    You will put a load on your battery. If it's only a few minutes, the battery won't mind.

    The transmission won't mind being in reverse with the engine off.

And why is insurance so expensive for a 18 year like I just don't get it. Even my grandmother said the same thing. Like why can't I drive the car?

  • Can you test cat convertor by removing o2 sensor for air flow and seeing if power is restored?

    Best answer: Yes, you can remove the pre-cat O2 sensor and install a gauge or drive the car this way. It will be loud but there will be an improvement if the cat was plugged. The difference will be more noticeable with a severe restriction.

  • Should I leave on or take off overdrive when at low speeds?

    Best answer: Turn it off at highway speed when towing or in the mountains and pushing the car in high gear too hard.

    It isn't even engaged at low speeds, so turning it off is pointless.
