That's good advice, Andrea. Another thing that helps somewhat is to get one of those windshield sun shades to put up whenever you are parked in the sun (I believe the metallic ones work the best, but a white one would be pretty decent also).These also help somewhat to preserve the interior of your car from extreme heat and damaging UV rays.As for the mechanic problem-- that is a tough one. If you can find a mechanic who worked in a dealership for a long time (and thus knows the brand very well) but then started a shop on his/her own to get away from the bureaucracy and hassle of the dealership service depts, that can be great for your peace of mind. He/she might not always be the cheapest mechanic around, but "good" is better than merely "cheap" in my opinion.I can recommend both a Honda guy and a Toyota guy that fit this description for the Knoxville, TN area, but unfortunately I don't know any in Bethesda, MD.--JGBFool
