    Rear View Camera

    You will fall in love with cams, I bet. Why? You can not see a toddler or small kid stand behind your vehicle or can not turn your head over your shoulder to look out (if you reach senior level). Silly, rear view or full 360 degree view cameras are your best insurance. Go with cameras

    Rear View Camera

    True. For my older truck with few modules such as PCM, ABS or HVAC, I can get it and install it myself. For newer vehicles, don't buy aftermarket rear camera, better leave it, buy a vehicle with factory rear view camera or full 360 degree view camera

    Rear View Camera

    I've seen a built-in small screen in a rear view mirror in early 2010 Ford and GM. One negative is too small screen, hard to see.

    Jiffy lube scam caught on tape!

    Oh no. Maybe he never replace valve cover gaskets, just add coolant/oil. What.... if your car have 4 cylinders, he would finish v/c gasket in less 2 hours but $910 is crazy or he misunderstood it for V-6 DOHC in Mazda vehicle. Nothing new to me. I remember I saw a repair invoice paper that a...
