auto dealers in chicago

A: http://seized-car-auction.info

Q: I am in the market to buy a 2008 MINI Cooper. I hear MINI rarely negotiates. How do I get best price?
$21,600 w/ auto trans and options
$625 for destination charge (I’d like to get waived)
Four dealers in the state
I am in Chicago

Any suggestions on negotiating tips?

A: There really is no bargaining with Mini dealers. The best you’re going to get, is MSRP, and maybe a couple freebies thrown in, like floor mats. None of these dealers care if you go to another Mini dealer. Mini sales salaries aren’t based on commission, so if they don’t sell to you, 15 other people coming in will buy from them.

Demand is outweighing supply, and Mini keeps it that way.

Q: more than just buying a car?
So, again i bought this car in amy and was wondering if it was new or not. All my paperwork said 20 miles when i finally took delivery of the car it had 3100 miles on it. Well, to my amazement i think i can prove that it was used, i had just found registration to a couple in chicago with the same vin number. The dealer world hyundia in the matteson auto mall just sold me a new car thats been used. What is everyones opinion on this?

A: take it back and politely tell them you bought and paid for a new car not a one owner used car. If they won’t work with you call the attorny general in your state and ask them how to proceed as they will most likely give the dealer a visit

Q: I am having a problem with the rear window on my 2002 Mercury Mountaineer…?
It is below freezing today here in Chicago, and I rolled down my power window on the rear passenger side and to my dismay it would not return up. The car in kept in a warm garage (~50 degrees F). When I try to lift the window, I can hear the motor hum, but it will not go upward. My question today is twofold. First, can I get the window in the up position manually by removing the interior so the car is serviceable for the next week or two? Second, is this a job for the dealer or can any mechanic/auto body place take care of this? Is it something that I can do on my own? I am fairly handy as I have tinkered on car engines. I have never done this before. I would appreciate any assistance in advance!

A: More than likely the regulator broke, you can unbolt the glass from it and use a block of wood to prop the window in the up position till repairs can be made. A glass shop is probably the best place to go for repairs but body shops and many mechanic shops can fix this as well.

A: You could try placing your hands on both sides of the window with the door open and oulling it up that should work no problem, I have to do that with my back passengers window at times too lol
I’d check to see if there are any relays in the window system but it sounds like either a bad switch or mptor or motor ground to me.So yes you could fix it yourself but be sure you try each window switch the master beside you and the door window switch too.I’d take the door panel off and check the grounds , plus use a 12 volt light probe and see if the motor gets power for up and down modes but if it’s humming then more then likely it’s the motor , if you call around to the big do it yourself auto wreckers you might find that several different models or different years of that vehicle use the exact same motor and it be a lot cheaper to take one out at the wreckers then buy one new too.

Hope that helps and best of luck.By the way some of the parts outlets have diagrams or instructions on replacing that motor , plus if you go to a wreckers you can gain hands on experience by removing them yourself too.Really there isn’t much do the job remove a few screws , remove door weather stripping , remove a few bolts and unplugging the motor assembly but be sure you check the ground on yours for rust or corrosion before replacing it bec it may just need a new ground connection or for it to be cleaned with a wire brush , sand paper or file etc.Also a good service manual should give you some testing steps and info on that job too.

On the Second Amendment, Don’t Believe Obama

The presidential primary season is finally over, and it is now time for gun owners to take a careful look at just where nominee Barack Obama stands on issues related to the Second Amendment. During the primaries, Obama tried to hide behind vague statements of support for “sportsmen” or unfounded claims of general support for the right to keep and bear arms.

But his real record, based on votes taken, political associations, and long standing positions, shows that Barack Obama is a serious threat to Second Amendment liberties. Don’t listen to his campaign rhetoric! Look instead to what he has said and done during his entire political career.

“They will need to pry this rifle [and handguns] from my cold dead hands.” They literally will need to, I will never give up my guns unless I am dead.

FACT: Obama has only supported one gun bill. At the time he was heavily vying with a GOP candidate forthe backing of the Illinois chapter of the Fraternal Order of Police. This was during an Illinois Senate race. (link below)

A: Probably a realistic offer — good luck to you

Q: Do you think this story is sufficient for an eighth grade essay?
“Eric!” a shout came ringing out, and I started shuffling towards my boss, on the other side of the isle of the auto repair shop I worked at. As I got closer, I saw he wasn’t going to give me a raise, he looked more furious than I had ever seen him.
“Yes, sir, what is it?” I replied, pondering why he was this angry.
“You remember a customer that came in with the black Ford pickup truck?” he paused a moment, expecting me to answer. After a second he continued, “State Farm just called, representing that same customer, whose brakes you were supposed to fix, by the way, expecting money because his brakes gave out at an intersection!”
Ouch. This was big. I did fix a guy’s black pickup trucks brakes a while ago, or so I thought. I would definitely be fired for this one, and it would be near impossible to find another job. My head started to pound, and I felt like the world was collapsing in.
“You’re fired, Eric.”
I walked out of the open garage door of the shop and started to think. Without a job, I had no income, and without income, I had no house, no food, no anything. I had no way out. I kept walking, thinking until I came across something; another auto shop, this one called Pro Parts. I casually strolled in, looking around. I quickly realized that this shop was nothing like my old one. It was filled with body parts, under lights, rims, and things like that. This place didn’t repair cars, it customized them. I looked for the owner, and after a second I noticed someone in a back room, working on a car. I hit the service bell, and he rolled out from under the car and headed towards me.
“What do you wish to buy today?” he inquired, looking for something in my hands.
“Are you hiring right now?” I asked, hoping to get another job fast as I could.
“No, I’m not. Sorry about that, but I don’t need help. Do you want to buy anything?”
“Not right now,” I stated, disappointment heavy in my voice.
Trying to make me happier, the guy said, “Did you hear about the race at Resco yet?”
“No,” I said. “What’s Resco?”
“It’s a raceway. I’m surprised you never heard of it. They’re having a tourney soon, in two days. The entry fee is fifty dollars, but the winner gets fifty grand and a new car, too.”
I drifted into a daydream. I could do a lot with fifty grand, all right. However, I had no car. I lived in Chicago, right next to my job, and had no need for one.
“Bye, then,” I said, strolling out the door, and once again onto the sidewalk, happier than when I came in.
I needed to win that race, and I had a plan. I had good credit, so I would just loan money for a car, about thirty thousand, and when I won, I could just give thirty thousand back, and have twenty to spend as I please.
Five hours and a cramped hand later, after filling out tons of paperwork, I had thirty thousand in my account now, to spend as I please.
The next day, my goal still clear in my mind, I walked to the first dealership, this one for used cars. I looked around, and after making five rounds around the entire parking lot full of cars, I walked inside, where they kept their “showy” cars. And that is where I saw it, the car I was going to get. A used 2005 Mustang GT from Ford. A nearby dealer must have seen my look of awe, because he strolled over and asked, “Would you like to buy that, sir? Twenty five thousand dollars, plus a small fee.”
I had a quick wave of doubt, how this was laying all my cards down, taking a risk that could send my life to the fast track, or destroy everything. However, this quickly passed, and then, I took the jump.
“I’ll take it, right now if I can,” I mumbled, sounding like an awestruck child on Christmas.
“Yes, I’ll get it right away!” The dealer was overjoyed that he made a sale, and he probably earned commission, so I could see why.
I watched them bring it to the garage, where I hopped in, and my heart was racing, beating faster than I could ever remember. The car smelled of leather, and the overall feeling was phenomenal. I would have gone home and celebrated, but I had an idea for that last five thousand.
Five minutes later, after having the best drive of my life, I was in front of the same place I had been before, called Race, Rims, and More. As I was walking up to it, I saw the same guy I had talked with before. I walked inside.
“You’re back again, huh?” the owner seemed happy to see me. “I’m still not hiring, if that’s what you’re wondering. By the way, call me Norman.”
I wasn’t really listening. I was obsessed with the things around me now, now that I had a car. I had five grand in my pocket, and I was going to spend it right, at least in my view.
“What would you think I would need to enter the race, I mean, if I want to win.” I said, completely off topic, but important.
“Oh, you’re entering, are you? What are you using in the race?” Norman was scanning the parking lot, trying to find my car.
“That green Mustang, that’s mine. I just bought it yesterday.” I boastfully told him

A: Is that the whole story? If so, maybe I’m not reading hard enough, but I don’t seem to get the moral or theme of this story. The best stories and the ones that usually get the highest grade are the ones that have an underlying theme or moral. It’s a great start, but think about it a bit.
