      Scotty Kilmer, Hi Scotty, I’m new to your site. I just bought a car and after a week or so of rain off and on I noticed a few rock chips and some other small scratches showing up. I’m pissed a bit! We planned on going back there in a year ta get a couple of cars but I decided no way!!! Is there a way ta repair them? I’m an amateur.

    Buff the chalky scaled clear coat with old school $5 Turtlewax rubbing or polishing compound and a $20 buffer. You may be amazed. Then rub it with the old oil or kerosene to get the white wax out of the pores and crazing. Polish dry.

    If you just painted the old car at Macco then I assume you had a bad accident last month.

      Worn tires and wheels. Buy a set of wheels with reasonable tires from a salvage large yard. Probably half the price of cheap tires mounted and balanced. This may fix the wheel covers too.

            Check the age of the tires. Using the code on the side, even with lots of tread, they could be rotten and ready to blow.

                                        will that product work for the black trim around the rear windows of my G37 coupe? I don't think they are rubber, more like black plastic. They are getting a little faded and blotchy. I can post pics if you want but im sure you know what im talking about

                                          I drive 2011 VW Jetta and I liked it (GPS, sunroof, .... Fancy). It's getting old and I think it's right time to change it. I want something around same range in budget wise. Probably second hand with very less miles in it.
                                          I am not big fan of Honda, Toyota because a lot of people have those.
                                          Can you give me some guidelines or suggestions please.

                                                      Check air filter. It will tell you if the owner took care of it or neglected basic maintenance

It was a v-6 with a standard in it. He had bought a chrome extra package that put chrome covers on the handles and trim on the side of the car and covered well worn parts inside, the chrome cover pieces made the car pop. I passed cause I ran the vin and found out it had been in several fender benders over the years and had been totaled out twice by insurance (red flag) the odometer had consistent miles issues (red flag). The car looked like show room condition, but had well over 200,000 miles, he said just over 100... looking under the car I could see lots of new front end parts and a dripping oil leaks around the pan, Muffler and pipes where rusted worse than my 66 ford and inside the car the seat mounts were really rusted, but the carpet looked brand new. I think he bought it thinking it was good and it was a poor rebuild with lots of new parts. He only owned it 3 months. Was asking $4000 for a 2007 with title issues , odometer issues and 6 owners

                                                                                I bought a new 1999 Saturn SL1 1.9L manual with no AC and no electronic doors or windows for $10K and it was a great little car that got good MPG (29 City / 40 Hwy), but in December of 2016, it was getting rather old at 186,000 miles and I wanted to trade it in for something new. One GM dealership said it was only worth $250, but another GM dealership had a deal for $3000 for any trade-in for a new vehicle, so I bought a 2017 1.8L Chevy Sonic for $14K. I guess that was the best deal I could get for that car that I otherwise might have sold for $500 or so, but now I'm stuck with a new car I don't really like that much (Sonic only gets 28 MPG combined
