How to Check Your Tire Pressure

Checking the tire pressure is one of the easiest and most-important maintenance items vehicle owners can perform themselves.

The expense of keeping good-condition tires on your car could as much as double if you fail to give the tires the love and attention they deserve. The primary causes of rapid tire wear are improper inflation, incorrect wheel alignment, incorrect wheel balance, wrong size for car and load, defective shock absorbers, and poor driving habits.

What was the Envoy XUV?

Offered for only two years, the GMC Envoy XUV afforded owners an amazing amount of cargo-hauling flexibility, along with a slightly awkward profile.

It wasn’t a dream. You didn’t imagine it either—there really was a GMC SUV equipped with a retractable roof. To the uninitiated, that might not sound too odd, except that the roof didn’t retract back from over the passengers, sunroof style; it pulled into the center of the vehicle from over the cargo hold, creating what more or less amounted to a handy pickup bed.

$300 Car Payments, Crossovers for $300 a month,

If you’re willing to live a little frugally, there are plenty of crossovers, new and used, available for around $300 a month.

Fact: Vehicles today are outfitted with more “stuff” than ever before. Standard safety equipment, sophisticated infotainment/connectivity systems, and a general desire for luxury features have combined to drive the average transaction price on new vehicles sold in the U.S. to almost $34,000. More sobering: The average transaction price on a new pickup comes in around $43,000.
