RE: Actual cost of repairing aluminum F150

I wonder if it is not going to cost more to repair and the parts are about the same why is there an increase in price for the aluminum version as has been stated many times.I also wonder which metal is more expensive to produce and which has higher environmental impact?Nothing against aluminum just the advertising about the use.So Ford is using the aluminum weight reduction to be more economical fuel wise,Ram and GM do as well if not better using less al.What will Ford do when and if Ram and GM also drop 700 lbs.adding to the already better fuel economy they have without it.Interesting subject to watch repairs etc.A better truck is good for all of us for sure.Insurance pays of course and the more expensive the claim the more the premiums go up.

RE: Left over 2014 purchase?

The only thing holding back would be my money.Give them an out the door price period end.Don't be coming with all these idiot reasons and more to get more money.Who cares how the dealer got the truck and where.

RE: Actual cost of repairing aluminum F150

So now if you buy a new aluminum Ford you have married the whole Ford system family and relatives.No thanks,I prefer where and when to have my vehicles repaired.Nothing against Ford but you can also kiss many family body repair operaters good bye,as I doubt they will have time and money to become one of Fords family.We ran Fords as lease vehicles but used the independents for all non warranty repairs to support those who supported us.I see Ram and GM family do a competitive job of economy as is.

RE: Help! buying used RV in Vancouver BC Canada

I guess my main concern would be, ok,it has been maintained,but how much has worn out in that mileage,not to the point of failure yet.Just way too much useage for me,like I said I would sooner have 80,000 kms less and I will put that on myself.You will lose your butt because of the extremely high mileage when you trade or sell,if you plan on keeping it forever,making low use,who knows.Lease or rental companies only dispose of an inventory item when it no longer makes financial sense to them,does it to you.Have fun in your venture.

RE: Help! buying used RV in Vancouver BC Canada

And if there is no water damage visible with that huge amount of travel you can bet you are not far from problems all over.Maybe if it only had 70 or 80,000 klms.You really need to have a full inspection of every thing.People who rent these things are usually inexperienced and don't know how or care about looking after the unit.I won't comment on the price due to reasons above. Why do you think they are selling it?It is still rentable hopefully,a company policy about maintenance costs?

RE: Boy, if I was in the market to buy...

Not anymore with the Canadian dollar exchange rate and extended stay regulations.Pretty sure the Canadian buyers are going to become less active.The other mitigating factors are more snowbird Canadians are aging into very expensive medical insurance,and the younger group are not very interested in that style of living.They want to see the world and more exotic places then as was put to me "sit in the desert"every winter.

RE: 2015 Lincoln EcoBoost vs the Ike Gauntlet

Question.Isn't there a lot more stress and and wear on a 6 cylinder motor putting out the same power as an 8 cylinder motor?I know my 6 cylinder cummins were a lot beefier then the 8 cylinder diesels but that was years ago.

RE: New Skylight: Dicor, or Eternabond, or both?

There seems to be a range of opinions. Thanks for all comments. If your new skylight is polycarbonate (Lexan?) do not use Dicor. There is a different caulk that is recommended, but I can't remember the name. I did some searches regarding polycarbonate skylight sealants and found mention of Surebond SB140 Skylight sealant... here's a link:SB-140. SB-140 specs state it is compatable with rubber - like my EPDM roof. So this is the correct sealant.... Right? This product works super.

RE: 2015 Ram 1500 a Contender? Not.

Yes it is a troll post. Now look at my seniority date and tell me that I haven't earned the right to call you out If you don't want to buy a Ram eco diesel then don't. The Eco Diesel fills a niche, just as Chrysler designed it to. The vast majority of half tons no matter the capacity are sold as passenger vehicles with a utility component,(the bed). Do you remember in the '70's the only multi door trucks were special spec military or government fleet? Now a days a two door pickup is almost as rare as a 4 door was then. If you are looking for a towing or loadbearing platform, you will look for the proper tool. Just a side note, My wifes Nissan Juke has a 1200 pound limit Very good post,don't buy something that doesn't do the job you want.They all make good trucks,why all the whining and bashing.

RE: Canadians and Americans living in Mexico

After reading some of the comments I also started having doubts, not being a mathematical genius I told my wife the figures, she's an accountant today, worked in Mexico as an executive secretary, etc. She laughed and said you and those sites are way off and to re-word the questions in Spanish and not in English, well after 4 hours more or less I finally got more correct figures than the original ones. I am old school when it comes to computers and such, I am trying to learn, all of this info comes from the INEJI sites. Here hare figures that come up more than all others. U.S.A. 738 103 Canada 7 943 navegador Good job,thanks Doug

RE: Canadians and Americans living in Mexico

Good afternoon Navegator and thanks for sharing. I gotta agree with the rest of the canucks. There is something off with those numbers. Were the numbers written as figures or words? I would think the Canadian number would be off by a factor of 10. I would be surprised if that many Canadians visited Mexico in 3 years. We just don't have a lot of people up here. Regardless, its interesting that there is a website out there that has that info. A quick google came up with a counteracting number of just under a total of 1 million foreigners total living in Mexico. http://geo-mexico.com/?p=4031 Gotta love the internet for providing reliable info. (sarcasm mode on here) J and A Saw this site and it makes a whole lot of more sense.Those other numbers seem to have a Putinish spin on them.

RE: Question for the electricians out there.

When in doubt or even having to ask questions about electical codes and installation call an electrician and be safe and insured.We used to tell people who came to the office or called how to install the material they had purchased from the local box store how to install it, to call a certain number for advice.The number was the local electrical inspector who then became aware of unqualified individuals doing electrical installations.General electrical fixing is fine,doing anything more is dangerous to others and expensive on denied insurance claims.More then one electrical worker and utility employee have suffered due to uninformed DYI.work to save money.

RE: Canadians and Americans living in Mexico

Wellll I can't find any source that comes even remotely close to those numbers and frankly am in doubt about them.that would mean that in 2000 12 to 15 % percent of Canadas population lived in Mexico??? Our population in 2014 was under 40 million I believe.Does it make sense to anyone or am I missing something.
