How can Jill get one very stubborn stink out of her '87 XJ6 Jaguar?

11.01.2008

I was given a 1987 XJ6 Jag. She's one fine-looking lady. But she smells. I recently spent $1,100 of my government stimulus check having the car completely cleaned on the inside. My mechanic (a very honest, small-town guy) took out all the...

Will shifting to the highest gear as quickly as you can, save gas?

11.01.2008

I have a son who has "gone green." He is passionate about the environment, recycles religiously and is very focused on gas mileage. He owns a '98 Honda Civic. He shifts to the highest gear possible, as soon as possible...

Was Jan's neighbor just on the receiving end of one of the biggest rip-offs, ever?

11.01.2008

My neighbor is an elderly gent with fairly advanced Alzheimer's disease. His wife was called out of town and left both of their cars disabled (disconnected the batteries, probably) so he wouldn't drive off on his own. Well, he did...

Does a car ever really need to be washed?

11.01.2008

My husband is completely opposed to ever washing our car. I'm not sure why. It's a 1996 Camry, and it's been washed about three times in its life. I wouldn't care so much about the shame of riding around in the...

Is two years on the lot too long, for a new car?

11.01.2008

I'm interested in purchasing a new, 2006 Dodge Sprinter with a 2.7-liter diesel engine. It has 75 miles on it, and has been on a dealer lot, unsold, for two years. The dealer offers a full three-year/36,000-mile warranty, and it is...

Can Kelly de-waxify her car's insides?

11.01.2008

I did something that was, at best, careless -- and at worst, really, really stupid. So don't tell anyone! When I turn on my 2006 Jeep Liberty, the vents emit a "not so nice" smell. So, I put a very pleasantly...
