  1. Maintenance & Care
    http://www.thefinancialword.com/9-things-you-should-never-do-to-your-car/3/ Is this advice reliable? I have a car driven not often (less than 3,000 miles a year).

    Anyone who ever used Mobil 1 synthetic engine oil EP (extended performance)? The manufacturer guarantees the oil life for 15,000 miles. It's hard to believe that engine oil can last so long without causing engine damage.
