Q&A: Can anyone recommend a good key finder? Something that will beep to help you locate them?

December 10th, 2013 Filed under: Used Car Finder — Car Author Many of you might be asking this same question so I'm posting with the answer here. Enjoy. The question is from pnotchr73

My husband is constantly losing his car keys, cell phone charger, etc. I would like to buy him a "key finder" that can help locate them from long distances. I have found a few through internet searches, but would prefer to go by personal testimony rather than just product descriptions and blind faith. Thanks!

Answer: If you buy him a key finder, he will lose that, too. Get him a key ring with a retractile cord (either a coiled cord or a wind-up cord) so he can't lose his keys in the first place. I've seen them at office supply stores. They are commonly used for corporate identification/access cards.

Q&A – Since we own(Taxpayers&Government)80% of GM,why can’t we start making an Electric Car?

December 6th, 2013 Filed under: Car Tips — Car Author I was looking through some old posts and found this question. I thought it was a good one so I wanted to post an answer here. The question comes from 'Out of the Blue':

I asked a question earlier today about watching"Who Killed the Electric Car" on the Green Channel.Let me know what you think about the movie,if you watched it.We are polluting "MOTHER EARTH" quicker than we thought,and I live on the Northern California where gas is $3.40 a gallon-I think higher than any place but Alaska.We are being ripped off and it time to do something different,you think?

Answer: Because there is too much money to be made. End of story.The gas/petrol we pump into our cars is making someone an absolute fortune. When someone has an absolute fortune they have absolute power and total control. They will bleed the earth dry before they make changes.(ED - below)Running your kids to school and driving to work does not require 0-60 in 3 seconds. You have no clue what you are talking about. Also, what the hell does climate change have to do with peak oil? Doh.
