    I think I'd start in the Got a Quick, Technical Question? discussion. Someone there can probably help you or give you a better place to ask.

    does anyone have the latest money factor, residual and incentives for a 36 mo lease on a 2007 tahoe?

    The place to ask this would be in the Chevrolet Tahoe: Lease Questions discussion.

    The Browse By Vehicle search tool in the left sidebar is a quick way to find discussions about the vehicles you're interested in. Just select the make and model and you'll be taken to the list of all discussions about that vehicle.

  • Hello,
    I have a unique question. Does anyone know of a website that posts the best available leases for all vehicles? My current lease is almost up and I am not married to any vehicle in particular and would just be looking for the best lease deal I could get. Thanks in advance for any info anyone can provide.

    I just purchased the cross bars for the luggage rack but have no idea how to install them. Can someone give me some direction on this topic?

  • I have replaced the starter three times in the past two months. The truck will start fine, but once in a while I have to go underneath and bang the starter to get it going.
    I have explanined the situation with a couple of mechanics and both seem to think it's a starter issue. All three starters have acted the same way. They are re-built starters that I purchase at the auto parts store. Since they come with a one year warranty, I have been able to return the previous two. I would like to nip this issue in the butt already. I want to think that it is an electical issue, but i'm not sure. What is my next step? thank you in advance.

    Take a look around in Electronic Gremlins: Electrical Problems That Are Driving You Crazy and check out the "No Start" Problems discussion too.

    Someone in the 1st Generation Toyota 4Runners (84-89) discussion may be able to pin it down to something model specific so that may be the best place to start posting.

    Getting the run around from Audi Customer Support on my mom's 01 A4. Had the "ignition coil" replacement" during 2003 at 12k miles; now, the "ingition coils" are bad again 20k later. Very inconsistent with "Vorsprung durch Technik" or any notion of dedication to quality. Where can I solicit some help in finding a sympathetic ear at Audi (including in the EU)?
  • tidestertidester Posts: 10,110
    You can talk with other A4 owners in Audi A4 2004 and earlier and you may find Audi A4 Maintenance and Repair helpful.

    Is there a site that tracks average selling prices of used vehicles throughout the country....or at least what models are in demand and what are not?

    I became interested in this when I sold a sentra (or at least tried to) in Las vegas...I had an ad running for two weeks, during that time I only had one call....I then took the car to Salt lake city , same car, same price, both advertised in local papers, two weeks later....first day of the ad I had 15 calls, could have sold the car 5 times over on day one........the difference was mind-boggling!!

    Now in south florida , I have a 03 dakota, I bought new for $1500 below invoice...it's been in autotrader for 6 months now , competitively priced, and I haven't gotten a single call yet!!...is the used pickup martket in south florida dead? I tried the local paper ...and if i want to sell it here, looks like i'll have to take a $9000 loss....would i be better off selling it somewhere else?

    Thanks for the suggestions; it may seem like obvious to you, but I wanted to post in the right place.

    You can use our TMV new car prices, used car pricing, used car values at Edmunds (True Market Value) to get local prices. Just pick out the specific model and enter a zip code.

    A Cadillac dealer has offered me a "Trade-One Pay Lease" on my 2005 Acura TL for a 2007 CTS(sticker price $37229). To sum it up they'll give me a trade in on my car with 3600 miles for $25,000 (NADA Guides values at $29,450) and they'll give me $7800 cash. No up front cash from me. A 3 year lease, no payments (thus, the One Pay Lease). I paid $34,000 for the Acura. I'm stymied as to whether this is a good deal. I've read all the Tips & Advice by Edmonds (THANK YOU) but no where is anything like this mentioned. Your opinions please.

    Can anyone tell when you buy a vehicle in another state, do you pay for that state tax or pay for your own state tax?

    also when a vehicle is delivered to you from another state, is it dropped off at your attended destination?
  • steverstever Viva Las CrucesPosts: 40,826
    I'd start in the Cadillac CTS: Lease Questions discussion.

    Check out the Vehicle Sales Tax Questions discussion for your tax question - be sure to mention the states involved.

    Try the Internet vs. Traditional Car Buying discussion for your buying out of state question.

  • I have been reading many post that dealers can charge there own money factor as long as it is not lease then the financing company. My question is when negotiating a lease and the dealer gives you a money factor how do you know if it one from the finance company or the dealer inflating it? Are there any printed information on money factors chharged by the finance companies?
  • steverstever Viva Las CrucesPosts: 40,826
    There are some threads about money factors in the Leasing vs. Purchasing discussion, so I'd try in there. Check out the leasing discussion for the make/models you are shopping in the Prices Paid: Buying & Leasing Experiences board too.

    Hello,
    I have a 2004 Pontiac Grand Prix. I am thinking about changing my factory installed Cd player with after market cd player. I have heard that that would damage car's alarm system.Has anyone changed their Cd player, ran into any problem? Any help would be appreciated.
    Thank you

    Need help from the experts! I can't seem to find positive identification on my engine. The casting date is Aug. 22, 1975. casting # 355909. Numbers on front engine pad in front of head 16W108727 - T0829CPB. Head numbers are 354434 which shows it to be 262/267/305. This appears to be just a standard engine but has the double humps on the heads. I would think maybe a Z28 but I have heard they didn't make a Z28 in 75. If anyone can figure this one out I will give you a gold star. Thanks guys
  • tidestertidester Posts: 10,110
    You can discuss it with other owners in Pontiac Grand Prix - 2005 and earlier.

    I have taken my Crossfire back to the dealer three times to try to improve AM radio reception on the stock radio. All I can receive are high power local stations and when I say local I mean local. They can't find anything wrong but admit that the radio does not work properly. My guess is that it is an antenna problem but they say that it checks out OK. Anyone else have problems with reception? Otherwise I love the car!

  • :cry: Hello all, I really need some fast help. I am trying to get out of a 2006 Mercedes-Benz C230. Because of a great promotion on my job, I now have 22,000 miles on the car and I bought it new in July 06 and the miles will keep coming. I found several dealers that are offering incentives one of which is Volvo on the S60. After offering $30,000 on the S60, the dealer said he'd only give me $19,000 on my trade. The payoff is $35,000. :cry: . Should I just give up and live with my huge Mercedes mistake, or is there someone who can give me advise on this issue. My credit score is 679 -711. Help please.
