    When I have Honda Accord parked next to my Tacoma. Both vehicles rush me on the amount of time I have to go open the doors after I unlock them with the remote before they lock themselves up again. Vice versa. Then I have to go back inside the house for the key to unlock them because I didnt know they would lock themselves up again. -.-

    Dang! Scotty was right. I unplugged the phone charger in my Acura TL, and the car immediately turned into a 94 Toyota Celica! Thanks for the tip, Scotty!

    Is Scotty slowly moving the camera to hypnotize us into buying a Toyota?

  • J Kidd (15 hours ago)

    HAHAHA! Maybe so. I'm just a girl who doesn't know hardly anything about cars. I started watching Scotty when my BMW wasn't working out for me anymore. I found a 2011 Toyota hybrid and paid cash for it. I have never been happier! I don't miss my beamer at all. And my toyota has over 200k miles on it and literally have not had a single issue with it!

    Hey Scotty! My car won't start. What's wrong?*Scotty:* Have you tried driving a 90's Toyota?

  • Arkansas Man (5 days ago)

    I'm guilty of using the cheapest ones. Never had any problem though. My car has a built-in factory installed 110V outlet so if I don't win, I'll be using that from now on. My TPI works from a sensor that monitors the rolling difference in the tire. Lower pressure changes the circumstance of the tire. It lit once and one tire was about 1 to 1 1/2 lbs low so I guess it works right. Tire pressure can change due to loading difference in cargo from side to side and I was on a trip when it came on.

    I have some USB power adapters that emit RF at the same frequency as my favorite FM radio station, making it unlistenable. Those were supposedly good ones, too. Might be a knock-off. Time to investigate a little more.Thank you, Scotty!
