Are you a current or recent car shopper who bought an EV and then installed solar – or who had solar already, making the decision to go electric easier?
Are you a recent EV buyer (past 3 months) as a result of manufacturer incentives and dealer discounts on these vehicles, including year-end deals? Were you convinced to buy an EV after finding a good end-of-year deal, or due to uncertainty around which EVs will no longer qualify for full/partial EV tax credits in 2024? A national business reporter is interested in speaking with you. Please reach out to [email protected] by 12/15 if interested in sharing your story.

    I am having a problem with my 1998 Dodge Grand Caravan Sport. My oil light is coming on and the oil is not low. The oil light does not stay on all the time, it comes on once I have driven the van approximately 12 miles or so, then it comes on when I am no longer accelerating. Once I accelerate again, the light goes off. Does anyone have a clue as to what this could be? Please help!!!!

    I was driving my truck yesterday and it died. I had between 1/4 1/8 tank of gas. I put more gas in and it started right up as always. Then the next time I went to start it nothing. It turns over fine. I dont hear the fuel pump buss when I turn the key. and the guadges are very dim.
  • steverstever Guest Posts: 52,454
    There are several engine/dying discussions over in the Chevrolet S-10 & GMC S15 Sonoma group. Pick one that seems closest to your problem. Good luck!

    How do I ask a question that doesn't really apply to any of the current threads or, better yet, how do I start a new thread? I have a serious problem about my new Toyota RAV4 that I would like to see if others have experienced it or heard of something similar.
  • Kirstie_HKirstie_H Administrator Posts: 11,135
    Hi rray49,
    Visit our Toyota RAV4 group. Have a look at the list of existing discussions, and if nothing seems appropriate, hit the "add discussion" link at the top of the list (it's on the right).

    Go to the Toyota RAV4 Group main page. Above the list of existing discussions, on the right side, you'll see an Add a Discussion link (right next to a link about tracking).Just click that link and the rest will be self-evident! ;)

    I've noticed that the fastest way (for me) to get to the make/model group main pages is to use the Browse By Board search in the left sidebar. Just choose the board that fits the body style of the vehicle (Rav4 is an SUV) That will get you to an alphabetical listing by make/model of vehicles in that body style.

    If anyone knows of a faster way there, please let me know! :P

    Here's the details (I hope)

    I'm an eligible GM Supplier
    The car has the luxury pak and dealer is installing DVD entertainment system. Also has side air bags & roof rack. The MSRP on Buick web site comes to $28,374 (on Kelly, it's $25,970 but I think that excludes many taxes/fees)

    Based on the dealers print out:
    MSRP $28,245
    LEV% = 51
    LEV = $14,404.95
    12k miles per year
    48 month lease
    Down Pmt = $1,000
    APR = 5.9%
    Acquisition Fee = $695
    US Luxury Tax = $110.40
    Window Etching = $149.
    Security = $375
    MV & Doc Fees = $545
    Rebate Amt = $2,750
    Adjusted Cap Cost = $27,144.02
    NJ Sales Tax (7%) = $1,340.62 (based on down pmt + monthly pmts + incentives)

    Monthly Pmts w/Tax = $368.91

    Bottom line: Did I get a good, mid or bad deal and was the LEV% reasonable?
  • PF_FlyerPF_Flyer Member Posts: 9,372
    Go to the Buick Rendezvous Group and check for the leasing discussion you will find there.

    I am having a problem with my 1998 Dodge Grand Caravan Sport. My oil light is coming on and the oil is not low.

    I had a very similar problem with my 2000 Intrepid, and it was covered by a TSB. Email me if you want (email's in my profile) and I'll see if I can dig up the TSB and info.

    This is my first post here. I have been selling cars for a little over 2 years. I had a gentleman come in to buy a car from one of our ads. He and his wife went to F&I and all was fine. They bought the car sight unseen. When they went to leave they go to the impala and he says "Oh I didn't realize this car had leather." Thank God he liked leather or that was a for sure deal breaker.

    First time poster here...couple of quick questions...any answers/ideas?

    Debating on the 07 Touring vs. EX-L w/NAV and RES. I've read a bit about the PAX Tires and it concerns me. Has Honda/Michelin improved this on the 07 model? We think we want Touring for the memory seats, better stereo, auto liftgate, etc...may not be worth the extra $$$ though! Can anyone tell me what they have paid recently OTD on an EX-L with NAV and RES or a Touring with NAV in North Carolina? Thanks in advance for any help at all!
  • Kirstie_HKirstie_H Administrator Posts: 11,135
    Check out our Honda Odyssey Group. There are a lot of existing discussions where you can ask questions, and other owners/shoppers will give you feedback.

    I recently bought an 06 Civic hybrid. About a month later, my dealer mailed me a letter, saying that I owed them an additional $182.45 since the tax and title fees were higher than they had quoted me. My question is: Am I obligated to pay them? Which forum would be the best place to ask this?

    Thanks for your help!

    My 2006 Toyota Rav 4 only has one problem. The tire inflation light won't turn off. My tires aren't low and even after adding air to them the light will not turn off. I've only had it a few months and find this very irritating. Any advice would be very appreciated.
  • jaygee4jaygee4 Member Posts: 1
    I own a 1990 Grand Prix, 3.1 engine, 4 speed tranny and have recently experienced a periodic stalling problem.
    Whenever the gas pedal is pressed after stopping at a light or stop sign, the engine tends to stall or bog down. Engine is restarted with no problem but again stalls when gas is pressed. This problem lasts for approx. 5 minutes
    then car returns to normal operations. Problems may reappear days later. Has anybody experienced this? Any ideas where to start and check for problem?

    I have a '93 Silverado with all options except power seats. It has a remote starter but I don't know it that was a factory install or after market. No antenna like the after market ones. Anyway. I have something draining the battery within 3/4 days. I have pulled every fuse in the fuse box and still read voltage across battery terminal to ground. I don't find a fuse for the remote start and wonder if it is located under the hood somewhere. How would I go about disconnecting the remote start to see if that's the problem? I assume it's connected to the starter relay but I'm guessing. I want to sell the truck but not to someone who is going to get stranded with a dead battery. Help is appreciated.
  • PF_FlyerPF_Flyer Member Posts: 9,372
    That's the type of question that would be better answered on the Smart Shopper Message Board You'll find a wide range of topics on the sales process there.
  • PF_FlyerPF_Flyer Member Posts: 9,372

    I have a 2002 accord which I recently purchased with the right headlight is very high. Is there an adjustment, or if there is not is there anything I can do to lower it? Ps: I just replaced the bulbs with the halogen lamps, is there anything I could have done to put it out of whack?
    Thanks, LarryT
  • steverstever Guest Posts: 52,454
    The Honda Accord (1998-2002) Maintenance & Repair discussion would be one place to start.

    I just bought a 2006 Honda Civic Coupe 6 weeks ago. I absolutely love it. Last week, someone keyed my trunk. I'm completely disgusted about it. This being my first new car (I've never cared about my car's paint job before) I'd like to know what my options are for repairs, and price range if anyone would have an idea.
  • patpat Member Posts: 10,421
    Ouch!! That's terrible - you have to wonder what is wrong with some people. You can find other Civic owners hanging out in the Honda Civic group, but you may also want to check out the Paint and Body Maintenance & Repair discussion. Good luck getting it fixed up.

    One of my best friends had a computer module go out on her 2005' Chevy Impala. From my understanding this computer module, due to it's not working has cut out her ABS, and traction control system. The dealer is charging her $800 total for the installation + part, and wanted to ask the edmunds experts if she is getting ripped off ? It just seemed a bit high to me. :surprise:

    Thanks in advance, for y'alls help :)
