OK, so your loved one has finally been able to wrestle that DuPont Registry away from you and demands you find suitable transportation back here in the real world. After spending hours perusing the Auto Trader and Craigslist, you find yourself with more questions than answers that are perhaps keeping you from signing on the bottom line or plunking down that hard-earned dinero.
For some real world advice and assistance, you might check out realworldautomotive.com, run by ASE-certified master mechanic Alex Steele.
In his words, “RealWorldAutomotive.com is a network of consumer-technical car and truck information.
We provide an archive of auto repair questions and answers by an ASE certified master technician/journalist, plus a variety of articles which are more than relevant to automotive consumers.
Access to important data and expert opinions on reliability, maintenance, fuel economy, and other significant topics to help car owners stay on top of their investment.
Included are forums by make, model and subcategories to discuss anything automotive with people like yourself, and qualified on-staff technicians.
This is unbiased, real-world automotive information. We’re not trying to sell you a car, but supply no-nonsense knowledge to save you money and avoid aggravation.”
Steele goes beyond just providing the latest new car or truck review. He works more in the technical and auto repair aspects of the business writing for publications such as Motor Trend’s Truck Trend magazine, Dallas Morning News, Minneapolis Star Tribune, Crain News Service and others, and says his specialty is a question and answer column called “ShopTalk.”
