Luckily, the truth got you a more lenient treatment from the officer this time. However, I've heard many lawyers advise that you tell the officer nothing incriminating - it's your right and the only way to preserve your innocence should you choose to fight the charges in a court of law. I hope you g...

It looks like they even put a synchro on reverse on the MT variety.

I wonder how well it will do...is this the beginning of the revamped PT cruiser era or is Chevy putting their money in a total fluke?

Happiness and sadness are emotions that are terribly hard to control and have too much of an effect on our daily lives to ignor...

That's why we need to do away with the DMCA - it allows ridiculous things like that and discourages people from fixing them.

For mtx drivers - fall or not?

You know, -40 is the only temperature that is the same in Fahrenheit and Celsius.

Just out of curiosity, why do a great deal of the links on this forum go through anonym.to ?

05 sxt mtx reverse

My 05 SXT, of the MTX flavor, has 1600 miles on it, and I've owned it for over a month. On occasion, when I put it into reverse, the gear doesn't set fully. I can tell because when I gently let out the clutch to the friction point and give it a little gas, the car grinds and doesn't go backwards. It...

Re: 30 Ways to Help Save on Gas

6. Buy gasoline during coolest time of day - early morning or late evening is best. During these times gasoline is densest. Keep in mind - gas pumps measure volumes of gasoline, not densities of fuel concentration. You are charged according to "volume of measurement". This won't get you much. The g...

From what I heard on the news today, it will get worse before it gets better. They say prices will continue to go up for about another month. Then they should fall a bit. I think it will go a little over 3.00, then drop back to about 2.20-2.50 for the winter, then go back up over 3.00 next summer. ...
