What Customers are Saying:

AlvinC answered a question about my Ford truck that only someone with an in-depth knowledge of his subject would have known what was going on.

Rich DUSA

Because of your expertise, you armed me with enough ammunition to win the battle with the dealer. They are installing a fuel filter and fuel pump at no charge to me.

MollyUSA

I needed help with my car on Saturday morning....got a response in 5 minutes, and it was the perfect solution. Thanks again to your service.

Jason V.Kirkland, WA

I do know, after going though this with JustAnswer, that I can somewhat trust my mechanic but I will always contact you prior to going there.

BRNew Jersey

I would (and have) recommend your site to others I was quite satisfied with the quality of the information received, the professional with whom I interacted, and the quick response time. Thanks, and be sure that I'll be back whenever I need a question answered in a hurry.

I have a 2017 Ford Fusion. When I came out from work this morning, my back lights were on and my fob would not unlock any doors or the trunk. The alarm also would not work. I tried to use the actual key as shown on a YouTube video but it would only insert about 1/3 of an inch and I did not want to force it. So I took a taxi home and got my other fob, but that would not work either. By this time only one backlight was on. Should I have it towed to a dealership, which won't open till tomorrow? Or should I have it towed to a mechanic - though not sure how they would gain access? Help please! … read more
