Hey Scotty, What do you think about a 2006 Acura TSX with 175000 miles. Do you think this car can last to 200k or maybe even 300k miles? Is there any problems I should expect at this mileage? It has been very well maintained.
Good morning scotty! What do you think about a 13 Nissan Altima coupe (2 door) for 5,000? It has a standard transmission and it was driven for 91,000 miles. Is it a good buy? What should I watch out for?
Hi Scotty, the radiator reservoir plastic cap popped off while I was driving. Thankfully I was able to put it back on, but the covers edge look melted. I also noticed the top hose (2000 Ford Ranger XLT) was hot, and when I open the radiator cap, the coolant spits out some. I also noticed some micro bubbles on the oil stick. What should I check for, because I want to save the engine while it’s still possible. I’ve got 7.4 miles to make it home. I’ll stop halfway to check again. Thank you! -Rick Ford
Hey Scotty, I have a 2000 Honda Civic value package. It’s has about 214k miles on it. Recently it’s been loosing power, I had to jumpstart it and now the radio has no power. The starter, alternator, and battery are all fine, the car was running two days ago. Could this be an electrical issue or something ?
Hey Scotty, Found a 05 Acura TL with 150k for $1600 that i’m considering buying. Wanted to see if you could tell me anything I should watch out for. Also, is it okay to use regular instead of premium on those? if so, would it effect gas mileage?
2019 Audi A4 2.0T 4,000 miles on it. Hey Scotty. Does it harm a vehicle to leave the wheels turned while parked or should the front wheels align with the rear wheels? Also, when trying to get the car out of a tight spot, does it wear out the tires prematurely to turn the front wheels while not moving?

Hi Scotty, I have a 2007 matrix and the interior lights don't work (lights for the radio, ac basically the backlighting for the instrument pane) i was thinking that I might have unplugged it somehow as all of the instruments work just the backlights don't.
Scotty, I'm not a mechanic but have been around cars for over 50+ years...cars are my passion. What I do know are cars and which ones are good buys and which ones to stay away from. I travel extensively and rent a lot of cars including high end vehicles. I would be more than happy to assist in answering questions about best cars to buy, ones to stay away from and when to lease and when to buy. If that sounds of interest, let me know. Cheers!
Scotty, I have 2006 Hyundai Sonata with a 3.3L engine. The engine temp rises from mid-gauge to 3/4 when I turn on the A/C. Why would this be? I have changed the water pump 6months ago (leaking) and thermostat as an additional precaution.
Hi, Scottie and Friends. I'm looking at buying a 2007 Camry SE, 4 Cyl. Owner says dealer rebuilt engine at 116k miles to fix a recalled oil consumption issue and he has paperwork to verify the work done. Odometer currently reads 146k. KBB range is $4125 to $5400. It seems to me that owner's asking price of $6200 is high. Does the rebuilt engine add that much value?
