Re: Thinking of dropping my Jeep

Re: Ecodiesel Lifetime Oil Change Contract $1200. Deal Or No Deal?

Read the contract. Up to 3 a year won't mean a thing if the contract specifies every 10,000 miles. That would give you 3 every 2 years, or 12 oil changes over your life with the Jeep, if you keep it...

Re: Lease vs Run into the Ground vs Replace every 1.5 years

I haven't purchased tires nor done a brake job since 1990 on an '87 Bronco II. I have had several vehicles that have had nothing but a single oil change. My current vehicle will be one of those.

Re: Best snow driving techniques and modes

The lower torque helps keep the wheels from breaking free and start slipping when pulling out from a stand still. It feels different, but it is the way to go.
