"IMHO, virtually everything on wheels built in the past few decades is mechanically, "like a swiss watch".  It's a trade off.  40 years ago, cars were mechanically far simpler, but needed a whole lot more routine maintaining…"

"Hmmm.  Let's see.  First off, unless you have mechanical or other issues with the car, it's going to be likely lots cheaper to fix it.  Uneven tire wear?  You need to get a four wheel alignment and a new set…"

"If you haven't been keeping up with this car (even if that just means keeping an eye on the tires) and are not already mechanically inclined, why would you be able to keep the replacement car running?  You certainly can learn, and…"

"Reading through the post, it appears that the liquid oils are expressed in fluid ounces (olive oil is commonly sold in 51-ounce bottles), and that author had already pre-calculated the amount of lye needed for that particular recipe.  But if…"

"Cool :) . I guess I have a question about the above recipe posted on AoM.  When it mentions ounces, does that refer to non-fluid ounces?"

Rick Shelton replied to Andy's discussion Would like some input on an automotive dilemma
"Conflicting requirements. Cheap to purchase, good on gas, can do most of the repairs myself.  You can have two of those three but not all three.  Example 1: a $10,000 Civic, cheap to buy, good on gas; very difficult to maintain. You can do…"

"My wife and I make soap from time to time. It's a fun hobby the important part is making sure you mix the right Orontes of fats with the lye and water. This site has a ton of recipes and also a lye calculator. You just enter in the fat amounts…"

"Boy, you really have to abuse a subbie to get it to the point you would consider getting rid of it. For what you are wanting, i might recommend a 05-10 Jeep Liberty. I have a 2012 myself, but that may be out of your price range. Rock solid, easy to…"
