No DIY??

As they say deepinahearta TX, "that dog won't hunt."

Wilt is absolutely right^^. It takes a few minutes but you can often get enough charge into the battery to help, provided that you are patient.

You should have it checked immediately - in the meantime, keep filling it, because driving it dry will fry the power steering pump. This is an urgent issue to avoid further damage.

Milage is totally individual and based on traffic and driving habits. I have never gotten less that 50K miles on brake pads, front or back.

Never tint head or tail lights. Unsafe and unwise. You always want more visibility, never less.

Well, if you just brush gently along a curb while parking, if you're paying attention you can feel it before the rim hits.

I do admit there are a lot of "if-then" statements in that.

Yup. Also selects between warm and cool air. Want heat out of those vents in winter? Don't leave it turned to cool.

Depends on what "refurbished" means. If it means holes have been repaired, no thanks. If it's a used fascia in good condition and is painted to match my used car, I'm OK with it.

There are tires that have a rubber ring protruding slightly past the rim; in the case of rubbing a curb, they help to prevent rim damage. Sounds like they might be a good choice.

That's another reason to stay away. If you ever have one go bad and need a replacement, your car could be high and dry for a long time before one arrives.
