• 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?

  • Does a mechanic pay for damage caused while fixing something else?

    My boyfriend had a belt break in his old rusty car, and since he wasn't near enough home to get it back here, and he wanted it done quickly, he took it to a shop that was right there.

    My boyfriend had a belt break in his old rusty car, and since he wasn't near enough home to get it back here, and he wanted it done quickly, he took it to a shop that was right there. While he was waiting and trying to keep the dog calm (our pup was with him), they put it up on a lift. He didn't realize they were doing that until after it was done, because he wasn't looking through the glass into the shop, but when he saw he commented that he had been going to mention that his car probably wouldn't do well on a lift, but thought they would know that from the state of the old car. The belt is accessed from the hood of the car. We don't know why they lifted it. Anyway, they fixed the belt, but he got in and started driving and basically had no breaks. The car is old, but they did break it by needlessly lifting it. Are they likely to pay or should they, or is this just kind of a thing where if the car was that rusty, it's not on them?

    My 2000 Buick century has no headlights. I was driving the other night and I had my brights on. I turned them off and then my low beams went out. I googled it and everything said it was the multi function switch. So I replaced that and now I don’t have any lights, hi beams or low beams. I’m not sure if there could be another problem or if the new switch is broken. Anyone have any experience with this?

    So I left my house and went to the gas station to get gas and I normally get mid range and I left the gas station and got on the highway. When I was on the highway and I started accelerating my whole car started shaking and was cutting out and my check engine light came on. So I exited and took an emergency route to get back home ASAP and tried to let the car idle and not give it much gas. I also noticed the car began shaking again after I came to a stop and started when I accelerated. Recently I had my hoses detach from my radiator and my car overheated and leaked out antifreeze. Since then its been smelling weird and then this happened today about 1-2 months after the hose incident. I really hope my engine isn’t ruined someone who knows or has experienced this please help.

  • Hi car mechanics:) I have another question.. please be patient .. I drive mostly on freeways everyday like 48 miles a day. Do I have?

    Best answer: Highway miles are generally less harsh on any automobile. Therefore, both oil changes and tire rotation can be stretched out a bit, at least to a point. If I was in your situation I would simply have both the oil/filter and tire rotation performed approximately every 6 to 8k miles. That would cut down on trips... show more

That would cut down on trips to the automotive service center as well by having them done simultaneously.

    I bought a 2005 nissan almera 2 weeks ago . After 4 days it started playing up after driving 20 mins driving it hesitates and loses power , and sometimes stalls when waiting at traffic lights . I took it back to the car sales and they said to take it to the garage they use to have the car plugged in to see if any faults show up . So i took it in yesterday and they said its clear and to see how it goes the next couple of days . I was dissapointed as now nervous to drive the car as surely the problem will still be there . I drove the car again last night and the problem is still there . Went to cat sales again just now and he wants me to take it back to the garage to have the car plugged in again and faults re read ! . Does this sound right ? I feel like im going round in circles

    My car is weak, it does alright with just me in the car but it needs more power so i can carry passangers and things in the trunk with out losing so much power. I enjoy driving fast and all though i know i dont have a race car or anything i enjoy upgrades because its more rewarding to customize a car then to buy it already done. Ive already added a cold air intake but it only added like 15 to my HP and i was looking to bump it up about 150 more. My car is currently at 155 and i think 305 would be satisfying to me plus give me the pick up i need when i have passangers. I do enjoy a more throaty sound and the cold air intake made it sound more so, im bot going to rice it out but i would enjoy hearing my engine more.
