I have recently been doing more work on my own vehicle and have been using random websites in order to find the information that I need to fix the car. I have ran upon many sites that want to charge you for the answer that you receive, are these sites something that I should be considering or are they just another way in which people are taking advantage of Internet users?
Best Answer Chosen by Voters:
There are many sites out there that want you to offer money for the answer that you are receiving. These sites promise that you are getting to talk with a trained professional in the maker of your car brand. However, there is no way to guarantee this. Therefore, for those that are wanting to protect their privacy and their banking information, it may be best to stay away from these sites. Instead, consider that there are many forums in which people are talking about the same problems and giving the same advice that a paid professional would give. Being a member of one of these sites can be just as helpful, if not more, than paying someone to give you an answer.
I have a car that I have been trying to figure out what is wrong with it, there seems to be lights coming on the dashboard signaling a bigger problem, does anyone have any idea of how I could go about getting an idea of what is really wrong?

One of the first things that you should do is reset the computer and see if the problem is not something that is in the computer. You can do this by removing the battery cables and simply waiting a few minutes before you hook these back up. If the lights do not come back on, then you may simply have been due for a check up and the repairman would have done the same thing. If the lights come back on, then you should look through your owner's manual and find out just what the light means. From there, you can take the car somewhere, or if you are wanting to do it yourself, consider going to your local auto supplies store. Those that work there are usually pretty knowledgeable about how to do things, and worst case scenario look online for how to fix the problem since there are so many sites dedicated to car repair.
I am getting ready to have my car fixed for some major problems and am unsure of just where I should go to get this repair done. Should I go to the dealership that deals with cars of my brand or choose someone that has their own repair shop?
Best Answer Chosen by Voters:
When getting a car repaired it is important that you choose the right technician, after all, you want to make sure that you are getting the car repaired the first time and getting it done right the first time. Otherwise, you are wasting your money. In terms of whether to go to a dealerships or to an independent repairman, the person should check to see if their car is under warranty, if so then the dealership is going to be the best bet since warranties are voided if the person chooses an independent auto repair technician. However, for those that are paying this out of their own pocket and do not have a warranty, then they should shop around for the best rates and service in their area. They should keep in mind what the reputation of the technician is and ask them if they do work on the brand of vehicle that they are bringing in, since many technicians have a niche brand that they work on.
I recently bought a used vehicle and have found that the car is nothing but trouble. I have had it in the shop on numerous occasions, is there any way that I can get back the money that I spent on it since I do believe that it is a lemon?
Best Answer chosen by votes:
The lemon laws in every state are a bit different from what people are used to, and they are going to find that in some cases these laws are not covering used cars. The main question to figure out is if you bought the car 'as is'. If this is the case, then the dealership can simply state that you knew the risks before buying the car and this is something that you are going to have to deal with. Overall, most people are going to tell you that you are on your own when it comes to the car that you purchased since it is used and you may have purchased this 'as is'. You can try to see if the dealership would work with you on the issue, however, the person should not be counting on this to save them from the deal.
