I've always liked Jeeps but wanted one that's a little bit more substantial than the Wrangler, like with a roof and doors. I have a pretty tight budget, but I found a newer Liberty with low miles and some nice options. My only concern is that Jeep stopped making the Liberty and I'm concerned that fact will make the vehicle a really bad investment. What do you all think?
I have a 2009 Toyota Prius that I love and plan on driving into the ground. Where I live, most people don't have a garage and so must park out in the open. There was a hail storm a couple of weeks ago, and the big hail stones did a lot of damage to the body panels on my Prius. None of the paint was damaged, but there are a number of dents all over, especially on the roof and hood. I just got a big check from my insurance company do fix the dents but am considering just pocketing the money. I really don't care what my car looks like (it's a Prius!) but am wondering if there are other problems that could crop up from the dents if they're not repaired.
I like to autocross my Mazda Miata, but it means I go through tires a lot faster. I have a way to buy good tires for cheap, but they are shipped to my house and I have to have them mounted. Is that something I can do myself? I'm a little nervous that shops won't mount tires I bought elsewhere, or that they're going to charge me a bunch of money to do the work. I would rather just take care of everything myself at home. Is that even possible?
I usually change my Wrangler's oil in the morning after the engine has cooled down. I don't want to get burned, that's why I do it in the morning. A Jeep fanatic friend of mine found out what I was doing and he told me I was being dumb for not changing the oil right after I've drive the vehicle hard. I don't think it's that big of a deal, but he insists it is. Who's right?
I've noticed that a lot of kids these days are putting moustaches on their cars, which I guess is a cool thing to do or something. I remember in the past that people had problem putting Christmas wreaths on the front of their car, so I was wondering if this is just human stupidity repeating itself with another thing that shouldn't be put on cars. Will car moustaches create problems?
I have a 2009 Honda Accord that I used to commute to and from work every day. The seats aren't as comfortable as I'd like, even though I love the rest of the car. I was thinking of getting some seat covers to make things better, but someone told me that since I have side bags in the front seats, I can't install seat covers since they won't work right. Is that the truth?
how many cubic inches is the motor? mid engine? hp? turque?
I found a 1985 Jeep CJ7 for a good price. I'm going to drive out to see it in a couple of weeks. As I was poking around to find out more about what to look at on the vehicle, I found on some forum people talking about how one of the biggest problems is that the CJ7 has a plastic valve cover that cracks, warps and leaks like crazy. The engine is the 2.5-liter four-cylinder. Does anyone know if that's true?

I have a Shelby GT500 that is the coolest car I've ever owned. The engine sounds so throaty, I can't help but rev it up at least from time to time and hear the thing really come to life. I guess I could hear it come to life while driving down the road, but I don't want to be arrested for reckless driving. I had a friend tell me that revving the engine is going to damage it, like throw a rod or something. I think he's wrong. What do you all think?
