    Here's an Accugage Dial Tire Gauge.

    FWIW, Consumer Reports tested tire gauges in their June 2012 issue. I don't remember the final results, but the Slime gauges did not score well.

    Honest, I'm not posting these just to frustrate you. Is this the second or third time? :shades:

    What do you mean? I just saw this today for the first time...right before I posted that I couldn't get into it. Really unhappy as I really like Automobile but the wife has cut me back to 2 car rags and already get Motor Trend and Car and Driver. I know they are both very similar magazines but I decided to give up Road and Track a few years ago to appease her. She just doesn't get my love for cars even after 30 something years. Hopefully this deal will resurface at some later date and I can snag a free subscription.

    Ah, sorry, I must be confusing you with someone else who kept missing this deal - it comes around every few months or so. At least you can read some of their content online.

    Hertz is trying to shuttle cars out of state.

    Great Low One-Way Rates Out of Florida

    Valid at participating locations for pick up between 4/1/2013 and 5/31/2013.

    I have a good friend on his way to Florida from Texas right now with his folks, all together in a pickup with a camper shell. I'll make sure he sees this in case he can't take it any more and has to bail out when he gets there. They left yesterday and only made 110 miles so it may be April first before they get to Tampa. :-)

    My wife got a $25 test drive offer on any Mazda.

    I may go try a Mazda6 or a 3 SkyActiv. Last time I went to drive a 3 they brought the wrong car! A 2.5l instead of the 2l.

    Here's the catch - it was a direct email to my wife. She used to own a 626 but that was years and years ago. I own a Miata and did not get it, go figure.
  • steverstever Viva Las CrucesPosts: 41,960
    Someone over on FatWallet got that offer too; no report on what they may have signed up for to get the offer. The few times I've signed up for info with various automakers, I've only gotten generic "spam" and nothing fun.

    She also got an invite for a Jaguar event and we are not sure how.

    Funny thing is I signed up to get info on several lux brands a while ago, including Jag, so no idea why it is going to her.

    Maybe because they are launching AWD and they know she has a Forester?

    One of these would fit nicely with the laptop station (that I don't have either).

    Craftsman Creeper Seat, Mechanics Adjustable

    On clearance at KMart, $79.88, down from $140. No free shipping on clearance items though and I don't see a free ship to store option.

    And there are lots of "Mechanic's Tool Sets" up to half off and more, next door at Sears online, tonight only. Deals end at 7 am Central Time Monday the 25th.

    You can save $2,197 on the Craftsman 136PC Professional Use Mechanics Tool Set. :shades:

    Have already printed mine and hopefully will go over on Wednesday for my test ride. The $25 will be nice to take the wife out for dinner with.

    Yep, my bad. Hertz has #1 Club as I recall seeing. Those "better" cars we do not transport but some of the others did drive some new Mercedes from Tampa to Lauderdale back in December and said they were so sweet! A C300 and a GLK 450 they said...just wish I had been working then! There's 3 vehicles I'm dying to try...the Verano, Sentra and Jetta but so far, these have eluded me but I've let the others know that I would really really like to try these when we do get 'em. Also yesterday I had a new Escape again but a co-worker was saying how much he wanted to try it. So I just gave it to him, didn't matter to me even though they do drive nice and he was thrilled. A little give and take goes a long way. He did have to stop & put some gas into it though which he wasn't pleased about. And I had never done a Equinox yet so I was happy. Prefer the smaller Captiva better though. But the Sirius/XM put me in a great mood and it's so much easier as I don't have to mess with cds or aux cords...not too bad but one has to be careful about leaving stuff in these cars. One lady left her cell...luckily the other group was still there so they retrieved it. One guy left a cushion, another a jacket. And we've has to go back to pick up a phone cord charger once in Orlando already. So now, we have a checklist before we leave any destination to make sure nothing gets left behind.

    I miss work today...never thought I'd ever say that again...but I do!

    YMMV.

    I just checked and Trico is the most expensive they list for my wife's van at $9.16 for the pair. Anco, on the other hand, are $5.25 for the pair.

    Its then $8.35 for shipping.

    $3.83 for me for the beam style. Don't really need them now but that is tempting.

    Ya, that's no good, shipping kills it. Don't forget the 5% discount - that'll save you fifty cents. :shades: The current discount code is 1389745411380574.
