This Site Was Built With You In Mind!
I had an idea to build an automotive website, but I really didn't think anyone would read it. It all started when I saw someone driving down the road with the windows in their car so fogged up; I could barely see who was driving. So my thought was, "if this person was smart, they would go online and find a solution," then the lightbulb went off!
So I went home to search for the problem, the information I found was misleading and confusing, so I wrote my first article and made my first video on how to defog car windows. You can click this link below to read the article and see the video. (http://hubpages.com/hub/clearfoggedcarwindows). I had no idea that it would get as many views as it did. In fact, it's still my most watched video, still to this day.
Without boring you too much, the ideas kept coming, so here we are! I built this site with you in mind. Most sites charge money to ask a question; I don't; if you want to donate, write a great comment below and tell me what you think I can do to improve the site.
So, I have made it very simple for you. On this website, you can post pictures, ask me questions, write a review about a shop that does great work, and you would like to give credit where credit is due, but please don't promote your own shop because that's misleading.
So while you're here, click the Facebook Like button and share the opportunity with your friends and family to have their car questions answered, or click the Twitter button to share it on Twitter. It will benefit everyone, so just do it; it's a win-win!
I just had one of my followers the other day get a quote to replace two wheel bearings for $1300. I told her not to walk away from the quote, but to RUN!!! I recommended she get a second opinion. She made one phone call and cut her bill in half. Don't take my word for it; see the conversation yourself at http://hubpages.com/hub/4-Common-Car-Noises, and her name is Kasha. Our conversation was close to the bottom of the page, but by now, it's buried deep in the abyss. (Updated 10/30/20)
So go ahead and ask away; I may not have all the answers for every question, but I'm sure I can send you off in the right direction, so take care for now, and I hope to talk to you soon.
