  • 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?

  • Why do people immediately think I'm financing when I say I want to buy a new car?

    I'm 20 years old and I'm saving nearly every penny I get so I can get a new car. I make $300-$600 a week. I'm not going to spend all my money on it. I want to have a little bit left over in case anything goes wrong with the car. The car I have now is getting ready to completely give out. I've had it... show more
    I'm 20 years old and I'm saving nearly every penny I get so I can get a new car. I make $300-$600 a week. I'm not going to spend all my money on it. I want to have a little bit left over in case anything goes wrong with the car. The car I have now is getting ready to completely give out. I've had it since I was 18. I've kept it up nice and taken care of it. A car for less than $1000 doesn't usually last for 2 years. I want to get a newer full size sedan (2010 and up). Literally everyone I talked to has said "Just drive an old car. You don't want a loan at this age. The interest will be high and so will the payments." I tell them that I will only ever pay cash for a car. I will be going back to college when I do get a new car and I think it's best to not have to worry about if it will break or if I can afford the payment this month. If it's paid in full, I won't have to worry about payments. I'm wondering why do people immediately jump to the conclusion that I'll take a huge loan for some expensive and flashy car? I always thought it was stupid when someone does that and then complains they can't afford it. Why do people always think I'm going to take a loan? I know a lot about cars so I know what to look for when shopping.

  • 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

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 to the automotive service center as well by having them done simultaneously.

  • 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?

  • Do I need a drivers license to be an Uber driver?

    Best answer: to legally drive ANY vehicle ANYWHERE in the USA, you need SOME level of driver's license. Even non professional drivers who do not work for a living driving such as trucks, busses, taxis, etc. still NEED to be licensed.

    Best answer: Have you read your insurance policy? Probably not. None of us really do. I haven't either. But I do know what goes on in these situations only because I work for a law firm that does insurance defense litigation. Part of the time, I field calls from insureds who are pissed off too because they think the insurance company is pointing fingers at them. Some of these callers are innocent and some of them are the biggest frauds ever. By law, there are certain conditions in your policy with which you must comply in order for them to consider your claim. Perhaps they took your examination under oath at which you provided copies of those phone records and receipts you mentioned? Or perhaps they just requested those documents and have not taken your EUO yet. I am not in Virginia but the law on insurance claims is pretty much the same in the 48 contiguous states.

    While three months from your perspective is "freaking long," from the perspective of the insurance company, and from the perspective of the law, it is not. Your insurance company receives thousands and thousands of insurance claims - many of which are fraudulent. It may sound surprising, but lots of people actually make a living off of insurance claims. Some are very good at it. Cars that are stolen and totaled account for a large number.

    I am not saying you are fraudulent. What I AM saying is that by law the insurance company is entitled to investigate any and every claim they receive. If there are red flags to a claim, they will investigate further. If, on the other hand, the claim is simple, straightforward and does not even hint at fraud, they can, and often, issue a check in a matter of days. I had a hail damage claim for my car once. Walked into the claim office, and sat. I thought I was waiting for them to call on me. They had actually pulled my car around already. They examined my car, examined all the hail damage, calculated the amount to have the hail damage repaired and cut me a check on the spot. Took an hour.

    Insurance claims vary from claim to claim. You have suffered a loss but it is one loss. The insurance company receives thousands of claims and they actually pay thousands of fraudulent claims that they did not know were fraudulent to begin with. By law they have a right to investigate each claim. It's in your policy. I'm sorry for your loss. Truly. But just hold on until they're done.
