Nokian WR-G3 Tires: Opinions On, Please by Bob[_53_]
Hello, Live in New England. Fair amount of Snow and ice during the winter, but nothing like, e.g., Northern Maine. Considering the Nokian WR-G3 (shown on their site as "all-weather") as a compromise, as I do not want to take on or off seasonally.

jack pad slot height by micky
What good is a jackpad with a slot if the slot is not deeper than the thing it holds? Isn't the idea that the weld area fits completely in the slot and the car is supported on either side of the slot? I accidentally came across a jack pad with a slot in it, so the weld line on unibody cars...

Antifreeze brown sludge by Tom Del Rosso[_5_]
What's the story with this brown stuff that, I was told, must be used with my 2002 Buick? It has solid particulates for some unfathomable reason, which clog the cap and stick to the sides of the overflow tank. When I needed to fill it, Autozone only had the green stuff, which seems to have a...

Do the Toyota Camry headlight polishers actually work well? by Danny D.[_4_]
Overall, do those yellowed polycarbonate headlight deoxidizing chemicals or 1600-grit polishing solutions actually work well enough to be indistinguishable from new? We bought for a college kid an older Toyota Camry of the early 2002-2006 model vintage where the polycarbonate on the headlights...

Does Armour All cause damage to the dash and other plastic parts ? by [email protected]
About a year ago, I got a 2006 Buick Terazza, 140,000 miles. It was in good shape, but it needed to be cleaned. I Armor-All'ed the dash, and 2 days later there was a 6 inch vertical crack. I bought a 2014 Chrysler 300 yesterday. The salesman told me not to use Armor All as it will crack the...

2nd copy of car keys and fob? by micky
How many of you carry a 2nd copy of your car keys and fob, when you're in town? When you go out of town? Before I had a fob, I carried a second car key for 10 or 20 years, but I stopped a while ago. I have a spare housekey and carkey buried in my yard somewhere, but I've never trusted magnetic...

Junk/salvage question by Michael[_23_]
The used car dealer tells me that the 4 junk/salvage notes in the car's records are because it went through an insurance auction. Could this be the case, or should I run from this deal as fast as possible? Thanks, Mike
