To echo another poster, I don't think it matters. These cars usually have poor air filtration/no air filtration too and don't get driven a whole heck of a lot. These aren't cars that are being DD'd to work and racking up hundreds of thousands of mile

You may find it amusing but my .308 has a brake too (10 FCP-K) and for some reason the PO put one on my .223 LOL! The .308 is deadly consistent at 100 and 200 yards. It is more accurate than I am.

My buddy's 2008 Impala V6 only holds 4 qts - he's paranoid about letting it get low and he only uses full synthetic. 4 qts doesn't seem bad in a small 4 cylinder, but it does seem low in a V6.

I've only been at for about a full year now (sprayed my truck last year, then all three this fall). Once rust starts all you can do is slow it down--IMO the big thing is getting oil onto unrusted metal so it won't have a chance. But in the rust bel

I'm contemplating selling my Jetta due to a bad manual transmission. They do wear out. At least on my Jetta I should be able to find (easily) another transmission. My Camry might be a bit harder to source a trans if/when it dies.
