    UAW to Congress: Get a deal done

    Perhaps the union could offer loans from their retirement funds. If they don't think it's a good deal, then it wouldn't be a good deal for the taxpayers either.

    GM CEO, Rick Wagoner: Why GM Deserves Support

    The auto makers are disconnected from their customers. I don't deal with Chevy or Cadillac, instead the face of GM is their dealers. Now our local Cadillac dealer is excellent, but I simply won't return to the dealer who sold me the Vette. For anything. In fact, I have a long list of...

    The cost of GM's death

    There are a lot of assumptions in that article I don't agree with. First, if jobs just disappear, they probably weren't needed to begin with. They are more likely to just move instead. I think the worry about warranty and parts could be overcome by price. Their may be a period of fire sale...

    How can President-elect Barack Obama best help the auto industry?

    No matter how your dollars are scaled, the only thing that reliably and permanently affects living standards is productivity. The more efficient a company or an individual becomes, the higher standard of living they can enjoy.

    How can President-elect Barack Obama best help the auto industry?

    Run Flat Tires????

    One other factor that is important to me is Murphy. It isn't so much the fact that you may one day get a flat, it's WHERE. I must drive through a couple areas of town where I would not feel comfortable waiting for flat-top. For me, the XLR is a daily driver. I will keep run-flats on it. If...

    Run Flat Tires????

    I purchased the Michelin's on line (Tire Rack I think) and their site also has a local installer search... turned out to be a near-by Firestone store. Same day I ordered them, the Firestone store called and said they were on the way from their local warehouse and could be installed the next...

    How To Use A Clay Bar

    You can tell when you're done with an area when moving the bar doesn't make any more noise and has very little resistance. When it is removing contaminants it will make a little swishy sound and doesn't move quite as easy. Subtle but easier to tell than it seems.

    Dancing Shoes & Cracked Rear Spring

    You might also have a complete alignment done; all four wheels adjust and the rear alignment is as important as the front. It could be a contributing factor (along with the anti-slip rear-end).
