    Hi Everyone! I have been deciding on whether to get a car or not for about a year--wife and I both have licenses, but really have wanted to be able to take day-trips out of the city--and rental cars are such a hassle. I settled on about ten different models of car--something that's comfortable...

    What many miles do you recommend between oil changes with full synthetic oil, with a V6, 150,000 miles, driving 80% city streets, 20% highway. Also, does the weather affect things, like a cold winter in Minnesota? I always change the filter when I change the oil.
