  • My check engine light came on in my 2000 Toyota Solara. I had it diagnosed and code P0135 was the code that appeared on the computer. That code equates to the O2 sensor, bank 1 (before the catalyst) was bad. I replaced it with a brand new one from the dealer. Now my check engine light is on after only 20 miles. I am now being told it's a circuit malfunction (apparently the circuit connection is not being completed) with the connector that the oxygen sensor plugs into on the vehicle. Does this sound right? Am I able to buy a new connector only?

    My mom is going to need to buy a car in the next few months. I think she'll end up with a Camry (given that's the car she's bought the last 2 times). It's possible she could end up with an Accord.

    Is there a time of the year that is the best time for buying a car? I'm also going to need a car in the not-so-distant future and I would love to plan my buying to get the best deal possible. Also, is it better to buy at the end of the month, or does that make a difference?

    Thanks!

    In addition to What's the best vehicle for my needs? you should browse through the individual make/model discussions.

    Looks like you found a good place to ask. Here's the link in case you need it: theessenceofla, "Purchasing Used Vehicles" #1446, 9 Aug 2008 12:46 pm.

    I haven't been on these boards in awhile, but I posted a new discussion topic on this board yesterday and now I can't find it. :confuse: I wonder if I accidentally put it somewhere else. I checked "my recent posts" and it's not showing up. Can you help me? I'd hate to think there were all these nice people out there replying to me and I'm ignoring them! Thanks! Karen
  • My employer will be giving me $600 per month (before taxes) for a car plus insurance. They will pay the gas separately. My question is...what route should I go? I was thinking Acura (used) with low miles...I'll be driving at least 30k per year? I'm so confused! Make? Year? Model? Lease? Own? What? I don't want an SUV!

    Thanks! :confuse:

    I'm not seeing any record of a new topic. Nor am I aware of any system failures over the weekend. Do you recall where you posted it?

  • Too cumbersome to navigate through thousands of posts...wanted an easier way of looking up others suggestions...
  • kyfdxkyfdx Posts: 27,885
    You don't have to navigate thousands of posts.. Just go to the last page of that discussion, and post the same question you posted here..

    Then, check back for responses....

    Here, I thought. But I don't know. I think I'll just find a thread that my question fits in and try again. Thanks! :)

    I am 7 months till the end of my lease and am not interested in buying the car, but am interested in an SUV with great incentives right now (GMC Yukon) and am afraid the incentives will not last until March. Does anyone know if you can negotiate with a dealer on price that would include the dealer helping with the final lease payments? (find a price and agree if the dealer is willing to aid in some way the final $xxxx)
  • tidestertidester Posts: 10,110
    Someone in GMC Yukon Lease Questions may be able to help you.

    Does a credit score effect the money factor when leasing a car?
  • tidestertidester Posts: 10,110
    I recommend posting your question in the Credit Scores and Vehicle Financing discussion.

  • not sure where to post this, hope its ok, i had got a dodge caliber se (basic,basic model) 2007 when they first came out and had decided to go with a lease. sticker price was 15,000. I had put 3,500 down love the low payment and i do like the car, problem is now my lease is up in march. I know chrysler is not going to offer anymore lease programs and they have sent me a letter to offer me certain "incentives" to turn it in early. my problem is on the lease it says the buyout is around 13,000, which to me is way to high being i already payed 3,500 and plus 27 months at 80.00 a month. what confuses me is on my chrysler financial site the buyout say 11,000. so does anyone know if i can negotatiate the buyout price since i am no longer to lease a different vehicle, or if the actual buyout price normally varies from the lease agreement and chrysler financial. I would like as much info as possible so i know what to say when i go in to negotiate with them, also i would like to know if they are trying to screw me over because the salesman was a tool. sorry for the lengthy post. thank you anyone that can help.:)

  • WE NEED HELP!. We just purchased a 38 foot RV and wanted a lightweight Hybrid SUV to tow, but not sure where to ask this question. Can you help
  • steverstever YooperlandPosts: 40,129
    Try posting in the Towing with a hybrid discussion.

    There are a half dozen or more "towing" discussions you can find with using the Search Forums tool on the right, and some of those post talk about the SUV being the Toad. Mostly non-hybrid SUVs though, so the powertrain options may not crossover.

    The passenger side marker light burned out on my 2004 RAV4. Went to my manual for instructions to remove and replace. The bulb was not where shown in the manual. Located the outlet, but was not able to get it out. Seemed blocked by side metal. Anyone else had to replace this bulb? Thanks for any and all help. :)

    You'll want to post that question in Toyota RAV4 Maintenance and Repair.

  • So, I looked around a little, and it seems that different people choose different options when asking the "which should I buy" kind of questions. I see in a post not too far above that you recommend the "which vehicle should I buy" group, but would that hold true if you had narrowed it down to the type, but were looking for more specific feedback?

    For us, we know we are going with a used minivan, and we have some ideas in mind (but are open). Which forum would be the best for us to post in (and should it be a new post, or add on to existing ones ... again, it seemed like there was some of each)?

    Thanks!
  • KCRamKCRam Mt. Arlington NJPosts: 3,516
    Your starting place would be the Vans Board. You'll see groups for each make/model, so look through the ones you may be considering. Check the various maintenance forums (engine, braking, stalling, interior, etc.) in each one, and see if any of the problems would concern you.

    There are also 2 discussions open for the overall subject:
    Which used minivan should I buy?
    What is the best used van?

    Hi, this is for your Suzuki SX4?

    Try SX4 performance parts and Performance Modules and Chips for starters.
