The car forum can be a safe haven for sharing helpful advice about automobiles or it can be a place for newbs to dwell and repeat the same inquires ad nauseam. According to Jalopnik readers, here are the ten most common questions you should find at these sanctuaries of enlightened discourse, broken down by type.
Welcome back to Answers of the Day — our daily Jalopnik feature where we take the best ten responses from the previous day's Question of the Day and shine it up to show off. It's by you and for you, the Jalopnik readers. Enjoy!

What to expect: I drove the housekeeper home today, does anyone know where I can get a new set of front seats? They smell foreign now and I can't have the president of the country club be subjected to that. Also, my Porsche t-shirt, hat, track pants, jacket, driving gloves, underwear and socks all shrunk in the wash. Any idea how to fix that?

1.) VW New Beetle
Suggested By: zziro
What to expect: I think the daisy in my New Beetle is dying. I'm not sure if I watered it too much or if the fertilizer was too strong. I went to the dealer and they wanted to sell me a new daisy. I really liked this daisy so I went to a Valvoline and asked what they thought. They said they could refill my daisy fluid for $60 dollars. Is that a fair price?
