    My son is scheduled to graduate from the USMC OCS on Aug 7. He is destined for flight school after all the initial training. He is insistent on wanting a Jeep Wrangler as a vehicle. I can’t talk him out of it. So my question is do you have any recommended dealers in the Quantico, Virginia area? Would you g o used or new?

      Please thank him for his service! I don’t have any dealers outside of the places my show airs, but I would go with a new Jeep. A savvy shopper will get a new one as cheap as a low mileage used one.

      My review of the 2015 Unlimited is up on the website, take a look!

      THANKS for listening to the show!

    What is the difference between AWD & 4 wheel drive cars.
    I’m driving a Honda Civic & weather at times when driving this vehicle is a challenge!! I drive approximately 21,000 miles a year what kind of vehicle is great to drive, has good gas mileage but is good for handling during winter & rainy weather in N. TX?
    Thanks

    I have yet to hear you recommend the Dodge RAM 1500 when asked to recommend a pickup truck. Why is that?

      Apparently, you did listen often. I recommend the Ram ALL the time, sorry you haven’t heard that.

    Now drive 2003 Olds Bravada & am very pleased. Looking to replace with newer, with something similar…short SUV with ‘direct slide foot in’ type entry. Do not want to lift foot over a ‘lip’ when entering! Location: Suburb of Milwaukee, WI. Please advise. Thank you very much.

      Diane, that is not information I can supply you, I just don’t pay close attention to which SUVs have the lips you speak of when entering the vehicle. I think you’ll have to get out and do some looking at different models. If you can narrow your list down to a couple of SUVs, let me know and I’ll give you an opinion.

      Thanks for listening.

    Hi-after 6 SUV’s (currently drive 2012 Porsche Cayenne) I’d like to try a sedan–thinking Audi A7 or LS 460. Since I’m uncertain I’ll like sedan, I’ve thought of trying CPO vehicle do if I sell in 1 year I don’t loose too much. Do you have any other cars to suggest or avoid? Thanks

      Those are both terrific vehicles, I would probably throw the Mercedes E-Class in the mix too, it’s a great car.

      CPO would work or look at a 2 year lease and see how that compares, odds are you can get out after 12-15 months if mileage is not a problem.

      Good luck!

      Sharon, good to hear from you. Not sure how I can help you. Your mechanic should be able to get parts, even if they are used, and install them. I don’t take mechanical questions on the show, I just don’t have the knowledge.

      You sound like you have a very nice car! I appreciate you listening to the show very much.

    I have a 2006 Pontiac Vibe with 180k, have had NO real problems other than I replaced the rear wheel cylinders in October 2015, I replaced the serpenteen belt a couple of years ago and I complete regular oil changes about every 4k miles at Arden Village Service.
    I understand this has a Toyota motor under the hood and I have sold myself on the fact that this car will run me for another 180k miles! Now the question is am I being realistic about this? What kinds of trouble could I expect in the next 25k miles? My son says to start looking for a newer car with less miles but I love this hatchback, it serves me so well in my busy life. But am I being real?

      Thanks for listening to the show. Every case is different, but around 200,000 is the most you can expect normally without a major problem. I think you’d be wise to start paying attention to cars you see to be ready for when something happens. AS to what might happen, it could truly be anything with the engine, transmission, or drive train.

      When something happens, contact one of our dealers at our website, they’ll take good care of you.

    Hi Jerry,

    We’re debating between the GLC diesel and the Jaguar F-Pace. What are your thoughts?

    Thank you!

      I haven’t had the F-Pace yet, so i can’t say, but GLC was excellent. I hope to have the F-Pace soon, they are just coming into the dealers now, so I hope to have one soon. THANKS for listening!

    I am the original owner of a 2005 Honda Odyssey. In 2014, while driving up hill on the Grapevine in Gorman, CA I hit the gas to accelerate, but nothing happened. The speedometer did not move. It was was stuck on 40mps.
    I tried pushing on the gas, but that did nothing. It was as if the transmission was just not working. I started to loose power as was able to pull over by divine intervention. Thank you AAA for towing me to Scott Robinsons Honda- Torrance, CA. After all of this and they said it was a speed sensor that needed to be replaced. The Dealership said that is what it was, so that is what it has to be. They never make mistakes.

    On June 22, 2016 going up hill, and trying to accelerate to pick up speed, the speedometer would not move. Pushing on the gas did nothing. I continued to move until the hill became to steep, and the car just stopped. Starting to roll backwards, I hit the brakes and held on for deal life. Once again AAA had to tow my car to Honda. Well, guess what they said this time. You need a new transmission. Yes, that is what they said this 2nd time. At 140K miles, I need a new transmission, and it is going to cost me $6,000. WFT! My 1997 Ford Windstar is still going strong with 250K miles.

    I have tried to contact Honda, but I am getting nowhere. No return calls, no communication nothing. I will NEVER buy HONDA anything again.

      I am sorry to hear of your issues. Transmissions around that time in the Odyssey often failed. I’ve talked about this on the air pretty often. I wish there were a magic answer. Save your time talking to Honda, that will only frustrate you.

      Other than Odyssey transmissions a decade ago, they make one of the best vehicles on the road, so don’t give completely up on them. I wish you the best and thank you for listening to the show.
