My favorite is my AUDI.... superb car... all time favorite. I got it as a gift from my father for my wedding. Trust me the car is simply superb.
Audi produces 100% galvanised cars to prevent corrosion, and was the first mass-market vehicle to do so, following introduction of the process by Porsche. Along with other precautionary measures, the full-body zinc coating has proved to be very effective in preventing rust. The body's resulting durability even surpassed Audi's own expectations, causing the manufacturer to extend its original 10-year warranty against corrosion perforation to currently 12 years (except for aluminium bodies which do not rust)

@cunlay
Battery chargers connect with the red
clip to the positive (+) and the black
clip to the negative (-) battery post.
Hook up clips to battery first, verify
correct installation and then plug in the
charger. I would have your battery load
tested to verify it is in good working
order and will hold a charge. If you
have a good battery go to a shop that
specializes in automotive electrical
systems and they will be able to locate
the power drain. Do not rely on your
alternator to fully charge a dead battery
after the jump start. Only a battery
charger will fully charge a dead battery.

Hello house, i drive a Honda Accord 1998 model but i discovered that after decelerating or braking, the car jumps forward even when my leg is on the brake. can u please tell me the likely solution cos my mechanic recommend that i replace one of the engine seat but problem persist. What do u recommend?
Re: Car Talk Chat Room by kingschild123(m): 3:26pm On Nov 01, 2013
ALIGNMENT:
That might be an alignment problem
(which also might irregularly and
prematurely wear your tires).
Maybe an alignment would solve that
problem, or you might have worn
steering parts (such as a worn ball
joint).
You can check the alignment parts
yourself, by jacking up the car and
wiggling the tires (but be aware that
tires should wiggle a bit anyway). What
you are looking for is unusual
movement in any steering part.
GRABBING BRAKES:
It is possible that the problem is in the
braking system (something might be
sticking). Perhaps you have a warped
caliper (which can warp from heat if the
rotors get too thin to properly dissipate
heat)?
You can test which brakes (front or
back) are causing the problem by
applying just the rear brakes alone
using the emergency brake (but just
slightly apply the emergency brake so it
doesn't grab). The emergency braking
system is by cable, not hydraulics, so it
isolates the problem to the brakes, not
the hydraulic system.
You can also jack up the car and rotate
the tires to see if there is a caliper.

Guys, there is a 2000 model Nissan maxima I was thinking of buying naija-used, prob is the owner says it has key-coding issues, is this a serious matter? can I afford to fix it?
Re: Car Talk Chat Room by kingschild123(m): 12:37pm On Nov 02, 2013
@ninz It is a bit technical you need to have the original keys programmed to your car.
Get in the car and lock the doors. Have
all remotes in hand. Insert your key into
the ignition and out, in/out, in/out until
the hazard lights click twice. Turn the
key into the "on" position, do not start.
At that time press unlock on each
remote 1 at a time. The hazard will
click for each one it takes. When you
are done turn the car off, unlock
manually and get out. You are done!

Hi all.
Just got a ford focus 2006 at 92,000miles.
People felt the cost of maintenance is not friendly in Nigeria.
Please i need experience to be shared about this car. It appears cool to me though, need your advice on maintenance.
Thanks

@zion247 I would suggest you use the car AC less frequently.
Re: Car Talk Chat Room by kingschild123(m): 12:37pm On Nov 06, 2013
@phyla
"Scraping" sounds like brake pad wear
strips - "grinding" sounds like the
calipers have gotten into the rotors. If it
just started you should be alright - do
not continue driving the car without
having the brakes inspected and the
necessary repairs done. If calipers are into the rotors
expect to pay quite a bit more. Lesson -
pay attention - when the noise first
starts have your brakes inspected and
pads replaced!
There are brake pad wear strips on your
pads that are there to warn you when
the pads are worn - when you first start
hearing that noise the rotors are still OK
- they are designed for that purpose - to
keep you from continuing to drive the
car until the calipers get into the rotors.

@kingschild123,tnks a lot sir.I might have no reason to doubt you cause I did something of recent which I have never done b4 nd that is the fact that I changed my break pad with an old one I've used before because I usually wait on my cousin to help send from the US but the one I removed was flat and I thought whilst waiting,the old one wld would serve me.Of a truth it never sounded that way until I got the pad changed and serviced the car as well.All simply because I hvent found the break pad here b4.Would try and change it.Thanks once more

Hi everyone,
Here is a new member. I drive rover 620Si 1994 model. After a full tank, I drove for 435km and my fuel caution light comes on. The car is a 65litres capacity fuel tank and I read that when the light comes on, it means I have about 9litres left. That is about 55litres for 435km. Please is this NORMAL for fuel econmy.
Thank you
