I'm a little frustrated at the moment with the users of Craigslist, and by that I mean the entire population of this country. Its bad enough that when placing an ad we all have to worry about the flood of spam we know is going to come, and don't want to list our phone number lest we get robocalls. Then when the shoes on the other foot we have to call and call or email again and again and get no response. So I figured I'd set out a few guidelines, and also vent my frustrations.

As the automobile industry radically works to reconstruct itself in
order to save itself, the fallout has included the demise
of a beloved brand of car or two. While the departure of a major
car brand may feel alarming, this is nothing new to
manufacturers and consumers.
On Monday, December 19, Saab -- the unconventional, yet charming

Greetings from sunny California where today it was about 80. I used to be like you, I used to live in the Great White North, and I'm here to help. Unlike you, I've never gotten my car stuck in the snow or ice. Sure, I've lost traction and had the tires spin and been unable to proceed momentarily, but never was there a time when I had to give up and call the tow truck or walk home.
What does this have to do with saving money? Well, it may save your life, it could certainly save your job, and at the very least it will save you time. If I can help you avoid damaging your car, then that is an extra benefit. I promise the few minute you spend reading this in the warmth of your house will be worth it when time is ticking and your wheels are spinning in the snow.

I don't know much about fixing cars. For this reason, I always take my vehicles to the dealer for service. Many people don't believe in this, but for the most part, things have always worked out for me.
Unfortunately, I had a bad experience last week which changed the way I feel about car maintenance from the dealership.

Last time we talked about increasing fuel efficiency I gave you a whole lot of advice about how to adjust your driving habits in order to maximize your money. This time I've got some concrete suggestions about how to make whatever you drive more efficient, no matter how you drive it. Put these things together and you should be able to get 25% better mileage than someone doing everything wrong in a car that's not been set up properly.
And I proved it yesterday, besting the EPA highway rating in my truck while driving a course of mostly surface streets.
