I have a much loved 1996 Toyota Corolla with under 160,000 miles on it. Recently the automatic transmission had to have an overhaul, and searching http://repairpal.com/toyota-corolla-1996/problems I found information about that issue. I then found a tab called just for reported problems. You search for your make, model and year and it lists repairpal verified known issues. Who knew that my car's automatic transmission has problems shifting at high mileages?! That sounds like it might be just a little bit important to know when driving on the highway!
I then searched for my boyfriend's car, a 1999 VW Golf at http://repairpal.com/volkswagen-golf-1999/problems. Geez, his car has some known issues, too. I told him some of them, like issues with his engine overheating, and also difficulty when shifting at high speeds. I read these aloud to him, and he agreed that those would be very good to know about! I am going to forward this website to my friends and family members.
