    I just turned 16 on February 10th and my parents got me a car for my birthday. They got me a 2009 Honda Accord. I know its not that old, but it has problems. When I drive it the car stops at random times, it's dangerous. And the window doesn't work. I can't even go through a drive thru because the window won't go down. What should I do? How should I tell my parents that i hate it and that I want a new car?

    Driver was late by 15 minutes (LA traffic is really bad). When my mom walked me out, she said to the driver in a stern job yelling way "ur late". When I got in the car, driver said "u have no idea where I came from this morning, blah blah blah & we're gonna have to stop for gas, is this the freeway we take to get to where u need to go?... He was already late, then we had to get gas. Then he started driving erratic, kept changing lanes. I told him I'd like to safely get home. He replied "I got this, I got this"... He knows where I live & where my mom lives, but I'm afraid to leave a negative review

  • Why did my car hydroplane?

    Best answer: Sometimes oil gets on the road and water on top of it will cause you to lose traction. You have no way of knowing if such a condition exists when approaching it.

  • Issue with the Aux input in my car?

    Hello everyone. So I’m currently having an issue and no matter where I look there’s no answer online, which is rather frustrating. Firstly, I have a Ford F-150 Lariat 5.4 Triton.

    Hello everyone. So I’m currently having an issue and no matter where I look there’s no answer online, which is rather frustrating. Firstly, I have a Ford F-150 Lariat 5.4 Triton. On the top of the radio it says “Line-In” where I’m able to plug in one of the Auxillary cord and the other end into my phone. On the radio, it has an Aux button. When I press it, it has three options labeled “Sat 1, Sat 2, Sat 3.” Though, no matter what option I choose, no sound plays through the speakers and a message is displayed on the screen and says “Call Sirius” And displays their number. When I called them, they told me to buy a subscriton in order to “activate their services.” So, does that mean I have to pay in order to even use the Aux or am I doing something wrong? I have an iPhone 8 Plus if that helps. The aux cord does work because I tried it in my mother’s car and it works fine there. Please help me because it’s rather stressful.

  • Why has no car manufacturer built a modern car with a carburetor engine? (Question continues below)?

    Best answer: Emmissions regulations forced the developement of everything under the hood. Car makers would just build carburetors and simple cars if they could. The Lada in Russia was carb until 1996, cheap car trying to stay cheap. The VW bug was built from 1938 to 2003 but outlawed by emmission laws in many countries in the... show more
    Best answer: Emmissions regulations forced the developement of everything under the hood. Car makers would just build carburetors and simple cars if they could. The Lada in Russia was carb until 1996, cheap car trying to stay cheap. The VW bug was built from 1938 to 2003 but outlawed by emmission laws in many countries in the 1970's. I think it used the carb the whole time.

    I see many people calling the carb ineffecient here. A good carb design with a good mechanic on a well designed car will not get better mileage if converted to fuel injection. There is much more going on. The computer and all it's gear got added to the carb to make the catalyst converter work. The mechanical carb parts were not fast enough or durable enough, so evolution replaced them with injection. Many advancements have been made for improved combustion and emmissions on the modern car. Only in the later half of compuer's life has performance come from it.

  • Bought a used rental car?

    My spouse and I bought a 2016 Sentra with 50,000 miles on it from a Nissan dealership. It didn’t have any scratches or anything but it was once a rental. The car drives just fine, but I am spectical of the previous rental use title.

But, my license is suspended for not paying past multiple tickets. Before you judge me for not paying, what legal requirements do I have if it was the lady's fault who hit me? I'm in the emergency room now probably with a, broken leg because she threw me off the scooter and my scooter is totaled.
