Ask AutoGuide No. 40
We’re thinking small on this week’s installment of Ask AutoGuide, where value reigns supreme. Are cheap and cheerful mutually exclusive traits or can they really coexist in an automobile? We aim to find out and help one faithful reader in the process.
Ask AutoGuide No. 39
Midsize sedans represent a massive slice of the automotive pie. These four-door cars almost single handedly (or wheely?) form the backbone of America’s personal transportation network, shuttling people practically everywhere they need and want to go. Yeah, they’re kind of a big deal, and as a salute to these hard-working automobiles they’re the subject of this week’s installment of Ask AutoGuide.
Ask AutoGuide No. 36
Unlike past installments of Ask AutoGuide we’re taking a moment to help one of our own this week. Don’t like it? Well then, how about you send us some car-buying questions then? How’s that sound? In any event road-test editor Mike Schlee could use a new ride. He’s the proud owner of a first-generation Mazda Miata that’s sitting just shy of 200,000 miles.
It’s a new week and that means it’s time for another installment of Ask AutoGuide. As the Motor-Vehicle Problem Solvers we never stop working for you, our loyal audience… as long as we’re punched in and Samantha down in HR has approved the overtime. In any event, small cars are becoming the automotive industry’s next big thing as people trade in their first-generation Toyota Sequoias for more efficient transportation, and that’s precisely the theme of this week’s episode.
It’s Christmas time and depending on where you live, snow could be falling and carolers calling. However, depending on your outlook, frozen precipitation is either a beautiful natural phenomenon or a dreadful sign of frigid weather; holiday singers can be a festive reminder of bygone times or guilty of trespassing.
What do Abraham Lincoln, Shaquille O’Neal and Chewbacca have in common? Truth be told, not a whole lot. Honest Abe got capped, Shaq can’t shoot free throws and Chewie is hairier than a herd of yaks… or the filter in a Econo Lodge hot tub. This trio’s differences abound, but one thing they all share is height.
As you know, (or at least you should) our (usually) weekly feature Ask AutoGuide is all about helping readers in need (or for our own amusement). People require vehicle-buying advice and we provide guidance (it’s in our name after all). Give and receive, that’s how it works; it’s just like Christmas except Old Saint AutoGuide shimmies down the chimney 52 times per year not just once in late December.
