Pep Boys now has the Pennzoil Ultra that is specific to MOPAR engines. If there is a "Buy 5 quarts get a filter" sale, you could save a good deal of money. When those sales go on, any extra quarts of oil are discounted. Or, just go to Wal

Yea I noticed that it was more of a netbook than a full laptop after I looked at it more. I am very happy with my SanDisk ultra plus 128gb SSD in my laptop. Really fast, cheaper price than a lot of the other brands, 3 year warranty.

Good job. I don't let tires sway me from a car purchase as I can get 'em cheap enough and any idiot can immediately judge their condition and wear level and cost to replace. In fact someone who's "had it" and doesn't want to shell out $30
