Haggling With Car Dealers Is Great, Say Car Dealers In Grating Cartoon

Should I Repair or Just Replace My Old Car?

Dear Lifehacker,
I love my car, but it's getting on in years. It's paid off, which is great, but even routine maintenance now runs me a few hundred bucks, and the mechanic is always upselling me on additional repairs that are hundreds more dollars. Is it time to just retire my ride and buy a new car, or should I stick… » 4/29/13 1:22pm 4/29/13 1:22pm

Ten great cars from the Edmunds '100 Worst Cars of All Time' list

Edmunds Gaming Google On Chevrolet Traverse CUV?

Google's a mysterious thing in the auto webiverse. If you've got a good story it doesn't necessarily mean you'll end up on top of the search giant's search pages. Sometimes it's so important to get ahead of the rest of the pack, you'll do some very strange things. Like for instance Edmunds. Edmunds is totally the… » 8/14/07 4:30pm 8/14/07 4:30pm
