What brand of motor oil do you use for your daily driver and why? In doing research they all claim to be the best. I haven’t found a consensus from online reviews on which one is preferred/recommended

I use Liqui-Moly from FCP Euro. Buy it once - they do lifetime warranty on all parts including fluids and consumables (read: brakes, filters, light bulbs, etc.). You have to ship them back the old oil and filter, but if you pay with PayPal, PayPal covers the return shipping.

For a daily, whatever the dealer uses

There is typically some SAE or some standardized rating you should look for in the oil you buy, and that rating should be found in the owners manual (I’m not talking about the Weight btw).

40 or 50 weight. Whatever sounds nice to Lance Tran.

Any fully synthetic in the right viscosity is fine. They almost dont wear out compared to natural oils. -long time racer and abuser of cars.

The daily car gets the Mobil 1 the mfg recommends. The diesel truck gets the MAF recommended oil. The weekend toys get racing oil as recommended by the engine builder.

Very torn on leasing vs buying. Wife is frugal and wants to buy used SUV cuz we don’t rack up a ton of annual miles. I like flexibility of lease as I don’t want to deal with repairs and have 2 kids under four who will get vehicle messy + northeast winters. With budget around 30K if buy would prob go used Toyota Highlander Hybrid. If lease open to a lot of other options. Any advice?

How do my fellow automotive fish feel about buying a used 911 4S convertible ? About 10 years old, maybe like 60k miles and up to 3 owners. Always wanted a nice car and honestly can’t afford a new 911 so thinking about this. Seeing some around 60-70k and plan to use for 5-7 years and hopefully then sell for about half (30-40 k). Is the idea feasible and anything I should be concerned about? Any tips (like model year / trim) would be greatly appreciated. Thanks
