  1. Yesterday
  2. Today, the Supreme Court of The United States ruled that states can charge online sellers sales tax even if they don't have a physical presence in their state. For years, online retailers have been able to sell without charging their customers sales tax, which gave them a leg up over traditional brick and mortar stores. This is a big win for retailers that have a store front and could never avoid charging sales tax, it evens the playing field. How states enact this on a state by state level is still to be determined. Many states today have put into legislation affiliate nexus laws, and the states that haven't will soon change to collect tax revenue. Small online retailers stand to take the most hit on this. From small website sellers to Amazon and eBay marketplace sellers, they'll soon have to charge sales tax. This will affect all kinds of sellers, including those that sell auto parts and don't currently charge sales tax. States will be able to charge sales tax on online purchases thanks to the Supreme Court
  3. Last week
  4. My other 2014 chevy equinox stared to make noise and after about a week or so it good enough of a hum to be able to identify what wheel was making the noise. I looked around online for a replacement but ended up going with the AC Delco OE from rock auto because the price was less than some of the aftermarket moog and second like versions at the major retailers. Replaced and working good. If you do one of these, you need a slide hammer to get it out, even though it's bolted in.
  5. Got 4 tires mounted and balanced yesterday at a local tire store.They did a great job. I ended up going with a middle of the road all season tire. They sold me 4 a Kelly Edge A/S 225/65HR17 for $100 each plus mounting and balancing. the tire itself seems to have good reviews https://www.goodyear.com/en-US/tires/kelly-edge-as
  6. So a quick update on this, I still have not received this order and got a couple of emails saying they are out of stock. Supposed to ship today from the manufacturer.
  7. If the vehicle maintains its speed or accelerates despite attempts to deactivate the cruise control, there would be an increased risk of a crash. NHTSA Campaign Number: 18V332000 Manufacturer Chrysler (FCA US LLC) Components ELECTRICAL SYSTEM, VEHICLE SPEED CONTROL Potential Number of Units Affected 4,846,885 Summary Chrysler (FCA US LLC) is recalling certain 2014-2018 Dodge Journey, Charger and Durango, RAM 2500, 3500, 3500 Cab Chassis (more than 10,000lb), 4500 Cab Chassis and 5500 Cab Chassis, Jeep Cherokee and Grand Cherokee and Chrysler 300, 2014-2019 RAM 1500, 2015-2018 Dodge Challenger, 2015-2017 Chrysler 200, 2016-2018 RAM 3500 Cab Chassis (less than 10,000 lb), 2017-2018 Chrysler Pacifica and 2018 Jeep Wrangler vehicles.

    Tire Rack

    Tire rack has some good deals but you have to really look around I find when it comes to tires. You may find the same deal or better going to a tire retailer when they run promos..
  20. When selecting parts for a car repair, it pays to know the differences between original and aftermarket parts. Whenever possible, get estimates for both. Choosing between original and aftermarket car parts — and even used parts of either type — is all about squaring your priorities with your budget. You’ll have different options depending on the part and the shop. And the best choice will depend on whether you’re trying to keep repairs cheap, restore your car’s appearance after a wreck or soup up your ride. » SIGN UP: Find savings on your car expenses Before we get into that, here are the key differences: Original equipment manufacturer (OEM) parts match those that came with your car, and are of the same quality as its original parts. They’re also the most expensive. Aftermarket parts are cheaper, and made by other manufacturers — often several, giving you more options. Used parts may have a bit of wear and tear, but should be inspected or rebuilt to ensure they’ll work. These are the cheapest option. Choosing between aftermarket and OEM parts Your decision will depend on the type of repair and the quality and price of the parts. Always look for parts that come with a warranty, even if they’re OEM, so you’ll be protected in case they fail. Auto body repairs Some aftermarket parts may be OK for auto body repair, but others won’t be as good, says Michael Calkins, manager of technical services at AAA. “There’s a lot of variation in quality.” For example, he says, aftermarket parts often don’t have the same level of rustproofing as original parts, fit and finish don’t match, or panels don’t align properly. If OEM parts are used in auto body repair, the car should look and work exactly as it did before the damage, because everything will match up. OEM parts are also crash-tested, unlike many aftermarket parts. Aftermarket parts come at varying price points and levels of quality, but because they are cheaper, insurance companies often prefer them. If you want OEM parts but are dealing with an insurer that wants the shop to use aftermarket parts, ask to pay the difference. “There’s also the option of used parts, depending on the age of the vehicle,” Calkins says. “It may be cheaper than an aftermarket part but still have all of the original quality.” Mechanical repairs A used part, whether it’s OEM or aftermarket, can really save money on repairs under the hood, so long as it’s inspected first and warrantied. And some aftermarket companies reverse-engineer their products to be even better than OEM versions. For example, many car buffs will tell you that you can get heavy-duty shocks and struts or brake pads that are made of stronger materials. Scan some reviews online, or talk with your mechanic if you’re not sure whether an aftermarket part could be an upgrade. Adding some extras If you’d like to modify your ride by adding something like a backup camera or back-seat TV screen, you’ll probably be looking for aftermarket parts. Certain aftermarket upgrades could increase your car’s resale value. This is especially true for improvements like a better sound system or alloy wheels, rather than mechanical repairs. Who provides OEM or aftermarket parts? The options you’ll have for parts depends on the nature of the repairs and what type of shop you take your car to: Dealership repair shops will offer only OEM parts — they have no reason to offer a cheaper product from a competitor Independent mechanics may be able to offer you a choice between OEM and aftermarket parts Independent garages that specialize in your type of vehicle will likely have both, but with quicker access to OEM parts, including used OEM parts, which can really save you Auto body shops can offer both, but if your collision repair is part of an insurance claim, the insurer will likely prefer aftermarket parts to save money Depending on the job, the cost of OEM versus aftermarket parts varies. Whenever you’re given the choice, ask to see estimates for both so you can weigh your options. Source: https://www.nerdwallet.com/blog/loans/auto-loans/oem-vs-aftermarket-parts-car-choose/

    Know it all. Just 'cause you have a cool 'stache don't mean you know everything.
  22. That's got to be your exhaust rattling more than likely. Take it to a meineke or local shop that has a welder to see if they can weld a hanger in place for you.
  23. I just ordered this again and its still 3.99 a quart. I ordered enough to get free shipping and used code SAVE30 for another $10 off. Came out to like $3.63 a quart after tax and free shipping. Can't beat that!
  24. Thank you for the information, Alex! I have noticed a rattling lately, but it didn't look like it was hanging low.
  25. Take a look at this diagram: https://www.cheapestgmparts.com/auto-parts/2008/saturn/vue/xr-trim/3-6l-v6-gas-engine/emission-system-cat/emission-components-scat

    Tire rack has been in business a long time. You can buy tires from them and have them shipped to a certified repair shop. https://www.tirerack.com/content/tirerack/desktop/en/deliver_installation.html
  27. That's an exhaust bracket that looks like it rusted off. It's either part of the body/frame or your actual exhaust. You'll have to take a look and see where it rusted off. Is your exhaust pipe hanging low or rattling?
