This board is dedicated to education on buying, maintaining, and repairing your private automotive vehicle. We invite all of you out there in the automotive sales or repair industries, or those of you in related fields, to come in an join this discussion.

The Motley Fool Community is built around the free flow of information and cooperation among users, in fact that's the thing that distinguishes our community from others. However, while you may in fact believe your statements on the board are helpful to others, please be cognizant of the fact that:

(1) Automotive maintenance codes vary from jurisdiction to jurisdiction.
(2) In some jurisdictions it may be a violation of the law to render professional advice in this type of forum.

Furthermore, it's possible that someone who renders wrong advice on the boards could be subject to legal liability in the event the advice is heeded and damages result.

Should these issues (or will these) issues inhibit the free and open discussion that are held on this board? If you have an opinion on someone's question on the board, by all means respond, but please make clear that your response is in no way intended to be construed as professional advice. For people on this board who are looking for advice please remember that a message board may not be the best place to get advice on repairing and diagnosing the problems of your vehicle. Like any of our other message boards, we encourage you to use them as a resource, but do your own research and your own homework before making a decision and if that means hiring a licensed professional, by all means please do so.
