    What Does Your Favourite Car Say About You?

    5 Ride-Share Horror Stories

    Ride-share services have become quite the norm. People would much rather call an Uber or Lyft driver than an old fashioned taxi. However, Uber specifically does not do a background check on their employees or meet them for an interview prior to hiring them (currently).

But how safe really are these ride-share services? You decide.

    New or Used? What You Need To Know Before Buying Your Family Car

    New or Used? What You Need To Know Before Buying Your Family Car

    The benefit of purchasing a fresh new vehicle is you buy a vehicle that usually comes with a certainty. In the first few years, most fresh vehicles will have very few renovations, so you can only concentrate on vehicle servicing. The retailer may also give reduced interest rate funding, which may lower the quantity of interest you receive over the loan's lifetime. These are the most fundamental benefits. Another benefit is that the new vehicles will be equipped with the recent technology, meaning you can discover vehicles with further gas mileage and reduced emissions.

    Rag in the Gas Tank

    So, back in the eighties, a contractor I knew bought a truck from the auction. He did a lot of driving in remote areas, loved his newer model truck, took good care of it, and it never gave him any problems. He had a small crew; guys came and went, but at a certain point, he ran into financial difficulties and had to lay a couple guys off. He had trouble making payroll. Eventually, he got back on track and his business expanded.
