DON’T BE THIS PERSON? Her auto technician told her 3xs that she should get the timing belt changed on her 2002 PT Cruiser. But she kept putting it off – because she did not want to spend the money. While driving to work – the timing belt broke… and because this vehicle has an interference engine, the engine is probably toast. The vehicle got towed to Auto Craftsmen.

This is why I highly recommend MICHELIN’S new Smart J ... read more
