Re: Tires

I bought Yokohama YK-520 from Discount Tire (national chain) and I really like them. Quieter than the OEM tires and no drop in mileage.

Re: HCH owner sues Honda over mileage claims

Doberwiler, I can assure you that the mileage on this website is not BS.

Re: Buying a Camry Hybrid vs. a non-Hybrid, does it make financial sense?

That's exactly correct, and what's worse it that all the money you spend at the outset on upgrades DOES NOT dollar-for-dollar translate to a higher resale value when you trade the car.
