      '18 Camry SE - Primary: throttle/converter lockup at slow speeds makes it tough to drive smooth. Secondarily, it bugs me a little that the SE is just an LE with snazzier clothes -> not much else in...

      Don’t confuse “roadworthy” with being able to survive a cross country road trip. Roadworthiness is provided by the letter of the law whereas surviving a road trip is more rooted in mechanical...

      We took a gamble when we moved to our current house, which was 15+ minutes farther up the highway than our old house was from my job, but more depressingly it eliminated my backroads 'fun' route...

      Yeah we had a similar incident with our friend's 2-year-old stepping onto our solar cover (when it was on the pool) thinking it was going to be solid surface and he went right under. Thankfully we...

      I'll admit that when we bought our house, the pool was not on the 'pro' list. It's an older pool, but it has been taken care of and the liner was <5 years old. No heater in it, either. I was...

      I'm guessing either a house with space for the Mazda to be parked, or a garage/workshop/some type of outbuilding

      Good on you for not settling, and hope it hits all your must-haves, both the ones you knew about and ones you didn't.

      Back when we were house shopping, one of our first visits was to this really...

      That sounds like something that my wife would be interested in. She had an MPG readout in the secondary display on the Mazda3 (the one right in the driver's viewpoint) that couldn't be shut down, so...

      I'd probably do a 225/45-18 if that's a common enough size.

      I know that on my M3, 225/45-17 is a common replacement for 245/40-17 rear tires (225/45's are up front, so it makes it 'square'), and...

      If it's a gasser, then you need not worry. The issues with the 4L60E transmission don't apply to HD's. They all came with the 4L80E (much tougher and more durable trans) behind the 6.0, or the...

      That's a tough one. As I mentioned before, GM 4L60E's tend to be hit or miss around that mileage, especially when they're on 3rd/4th owners with no good gauge of prior history, usage, and...

      Some say to stay away from the 5.4's because they eject spark plugs or snap off in the heads when left in too long. I'm of the opinion that most of the defective head/plug combos have already [email protected]

      IMO aluminum wheels don't fare much better either. I have an older set of aluminum wheels with snow tires that came with my Subaru. They look like garbage since the clearcoat is peeling and they...

      From firsthand experience, shopping for a truck in the Northeast in your budget is going to be tough.

      If bed size is important, but style of cab isn't necessarily important, you can't go wrong...

      I actually have the same hose reel, had it set up in my old garage before I moved to my current setup. Since I haven't had my compressor set up for the past few years, I haven't installed the reel....

      They didn't go out of business, they were bought by Bendpak. I imagine you should still be able to get parts for it through them. I also imagine that if there are some serious design flaws, that a...

      On the subject of TFL, keep in mind that when doing 25K-30K miles per year you will torch a lot of money in depreciation in most (if not all) newer cars.
