Monday, April 26, 2010, the free online guide for car owners

My husband loves his Saturn. He says it's arguably the best car he's ever owned. Like many Saturn owners, however, hubby is grieving because GM decided to discontinue the line. But that's another story for another day.

As any car owner knows, auto parts wear out – even if you’re good at performing scheduled routine maintenance. Repairs, such as brake rotor replacement, are sometimes necessary. If you’re like me, you hope that the mechanic does the job quickly and professionally – and that you don’t have to sacrifice your next two paychecks to pay for the work.

My husband and I are in the market for a second vehicle, and we try to make informed decisions.

With a few mouse clicks, you can learn common problems associated with the vehicle. You can even check for automaker recalls.

A salute to spring

A salute to spring

To walks
To strolling
To kicking rocks across the street
To holding hands
To silly jokes
To laughter for no particular reason

To incredibly blue skies
To astoundingly white clouds

To nights so black
To stars so twinkly
To the man in the moon smiling down

To clearing a patch and planting seeds
To tomatoes free from tomato rot

To rainy days
To stormy nights
To cold mornings

To hot coffee
To bologna sandwiches
To chocolate chip cookies

To happiness
To spring
