  1. Question for insurance experts

    Q50 General Discussion Forum
    Be sure your deductible is as high as you can afford. Insurance is for disasters, so deductibles should be as high as possible to keep premiums lower. Mine’s at $1,500.
  2. Oil change

    Q50 General Discussion Forum
    5W-30, full synthetic all the way. The dealer tried to sneak in 0W-20 once during the summer. That was the last time I let them touch my car again. Zero and 20 weight are just too thin at startup and operating temperature, respectively, particularly during warmer months. Also, DIY oil changes...
  3. Dirty, Dirty Oil

    Q50 General Discussion Forum
    It was me. I don’t let scumbag dealerships touch my car, and no good Indys nearby. There’s definitely a lot of stop and go driving. Changing more frequently than every six months, < 3K miles with full synthetic seems over the top.
  4. Dirty, Dirty Oil

    Q50 General Discussion Forum
    I just did an oil change on my wife’s ‘15 Q50 w/42k miles. Mobil 1 5W-30, OEM filter. I was pretty surprised how dirty the oil was. It’s been only just over six months and less than 3k miles (you read that right) since I did the last change. Anyone else experience this?
  5. Recall - backup camera may go blank

    Q50 General Discussion Forum
    How is this not a recall for all dating back to 2014? The same complaints run the gamut for all years. Probably the same root cause. Fear of going bankrupt?
  6. 2014 Q50 Hybrid Needs Clutch Disc Replacement

    Q50 General Discussion Forum
    The air conditioning and cooling fans have clutches, too. Does that make it a manual? Of course not. Total nonsense.
  7. 2014 Q50 Hybrid Needs Clutch Disc Replacement

    Q50 General Discussion Forum
    The Better Business Bureau is a useless org. Don’t waste your time. Go straight to a lawyer to first write a firm letter, but expect to go much further.
  8. New Battery

    Q50 General Discussion Forum
    Don’t go to a dealership. They’ll rob you blind. Any big box auto parts retailer carries reasonably-priced batteries more than able to do the job.
  9. Q50s starter question

    Q50 General Discussion Forum
    Sounds like the alternator is no longer adequately charging the battery, or the battery is kaput. A quick trip to a big box auto parts store to get your charging system checked should confirm this.
  10. Dealer pushing BG oil change fuel

    Q50 General Discussion Forum
    I highly recommend NOT bringing your car to the dealership for routine maintenance. Do it yourself to ensure it gets done right. They absolutely don’t care about using the correct weight oil, overtightening the drain plug, overfilling the oil, etc. It’s total incompetence disguised by a...
  11. Qx30

    Q50 General Discussion Forum
    One often overlooked item is that they always way overtighten the wheel lugs. Anytime those idiots touch your wheels (rotation, brakes, etc), you need to loosen and properly torque them yourself.
  12. Should i buy a 2015 Q50 with 95k miles

    Q50 General Discussion Forum
    Taken in its entirety, sounds likely.
  13. Brakes grinding after replacement

    Q50 General Discussion Forum
    Check the wear indicator for proper fitment
  14. Why you should bed in new brake rotors

    Q50 General Discussion Forum
    Good post. When I replaced my pads and rotors with Powerstop from Rock Auto, the parts came with simple bed in instructions. Spending 10 minutes to do it properly only makes sense.
  15. 5 Year Old New Tires

    Q50 General Discussion Forum
    Correct. Bad idea. Waste of money no matter the cost.
  16. 2015 Q50 Premium Wheels

    Q50 General Discussion Forum
    I was able to find a set of 19” Sport wheels with newer tires for sale on here for my ‘15 Premium. The seller was fantastic, and the dealer didn’t charge too much to repair the light curb rash. Sold my old 17” set to offset much of the cost. Keep checking the Classified section.
  17. Extended Vehicle Protection from Carchex

    Q50 General Discussion Forum
    Congratulations
  18. Extended Vehicle Protection from Carchex

    Q50 General Discussion Forum
    Elaborate what? Extended warranties, particularly for Japanese cars, are a waste of money. Folks with decades of experience know this. The extended warranty business is mature at this point. My intention is to help the OP save money.
  19. Maintenance Q50 3.7

    Q50 General Discussion Forum
    I’m trying to help people who otherwise are misled by SAs and technicians.
  20. Dealership put 1.4L extra oil in my red sport

    Q50 General Discussion Forum
    After correcting just about everything the dealership does, I’ve decided just to do as much as possible myself. Oil changes are a no brainer. Dealerships overfill and over tighten everything. They don’t give a rats ass, and completely disappear if you complain.
