I'm looking into buying a car that the year, make, and, model selected above and have been told that an auto technician recommended replacing the transmission because of a leak that can not be repaired. What are the approximate price ranges that can be expected in order to have this done?
The transmision will not shift. What would cause this?
Hi there,

My car came with P215/50/17 tires on alloy rims. This is a low profile tire, looks sexy but a bad idea. I live in the Northeast and in the last couple of winters the potholes are terrible and because the aspect ratio is 50, the tire does not have sufficient cushioning to absorb the impact and the rims get damaged which is very expensive to repair. I went to a tire place to ask to mount P215/65/17 tires on these rims and they refused. The only argument they had was that the larger front wheels may rub against the body during turns but there is at least 3-4 inch clearance right now, so why would this be a problem? I personally wonder if the car handling may be compromised. What do you think?
