Never, never buy a car with a salvage title unless you have a clear understanding of what caused the salvage and you never plan to sell the car. Because no one else will want it.

Oh hey, my BMW specialist once suggested that I use Chevron, but he cautioned that I shouldn't use it too often. Using too much cleaner can cause damage. That may not be the cause of your...
