    Carfax-like app

    Over on the Corvette Forum, a member posted a free app that was similar to Carfax for vehicle history. I tried it on my vehicles, and other than it not giving mileages at services, it is pretty accurate. It is called "orto". I am unsure just how many vehicle searches you can do for free...

    Need some advice on car-buying/selling sites

    My Dad wants me to sell his Beetle convertible, as he can no longer drive. I figure it would be smart to wait until April when people start looking for verts, but in the mean time Ive been valuing his car on the different sites that buy cars. Carvana, Carmax, Vroom, Cargurus, Drivetime, etc...

    Trilingual Cluster?

    Well, this is a new one.... Last week, completely out of the blue, the cluster DIC started rotating between English, French and Spanish. Mileage is still correct, all other gauges work correctly. Disconnected both batteries over night to see if that might help, no luck the next day. Anyone...

    2020 work truck fueling issue

    My brand new work truck has an issue when trying to fuel it. Can only input 1/2 gallon at a time, at very slow pump speed. Mechanics are stumped. Its a 6.0 LS with an Allison, so the drivetrain setup is very similar to a regular GM pickup. Fuel pump in the tank does work as it should. Tank...

    How did you get into your career?

    The "What did you do at work?" thread got me thinking about this. How did you fall into your job/career? Family? Luck (good OR bad)? Forced to? Skillz? Me: July 1985. I was 21, failing in college (damn Calculus! I cannot do theoretical math!) and going nowhere as a shift mgr at...

    Front bumper/grille recommendations?

    Need a new chrome oem-style bumper and grille for BBT. Do you guys have any recommendations of vendors to look into or stay away from quality-wise? I wouldnt mind buying GM OEM replacements if I can find the parts for a realtively decent price.

    Buick Regal 2.0T opinions?

    Hey guys, I'm going to be looking at a 2017 Buick Regal premium 2 with the 2.0T in it. Full boat, and comes with 1 yr gm b2b warranty. Has 31500 miles. Opinions good or bad? I understand the 2014/15 2.0s had piston and rod bearing issues. Did they resolve those in the later years?

    Recommendations for replacement front bumper/grille?

    With absolutely nothing better to do, Im looking at the rusted front bumper and wrinkled/chipped grille chrome on BBT and thinking they finally need to be replaced. Have any of you had any luck with replacement parts other than OEM? Im staying with the stock 2003 look, too. I found a few...
