      That's a bummer, OP. I don't blame you for being upset.

      FWIW, where I live in the far western suburbs of Detroit, approximately every third vehicle is a Ford F-150, with the 2015+ aluminum bodied...

      Why not just get some inexpensive steel wheels for the winter tires? That avoids the need to swap tires twice a year and it won't ruin your day if she hits a pothole or kisses a curb in the snow.

      I understand there can be a difference between the "right" and "correct" answer but it would have to be a very special car for me to go through all that. My response to the call where she claimed...

      Exactly. And if the person never sends the email confirmation, you don't have to give them your business.

      I'm also curious to know what the OP does for a living. He must live a charmed life if...

      I wouldn't say mileage is irrelevant when talking about a 4Runner or GX, but mileage in the 150-200K range definitely isn't the same indicator of remaining service life as it might be for another...

      That's what I'd do. No need to buy new with such a short commute.

      People will steal anything that's not bolted down if it's worth even the tiniest amount of money, and always have. Back in 2008-09 people were breaking into old houses in bad neighborhoods in...

      That's nuts. I'm currently under 7% of gross and I already feel like it's a lot in the context of real life, where I pay taxes, other bills and need to keep some cash on hand for emergencies. I...

      You don't find it shocking someone is able to make $3000/day from the garbage he churns out?

      One could argue this isn't even a question of slicing and dicing the data but rather that the data set itself is fairly meaningless because it doesn't even differentiate between loans and leases. ...
