Most new cars have warning buzzers for half a dozen different things. Just not for the important things. Like, for instance, total loss of engine coolant. A friend told me her car’s heater wasn’t working so I went outside to have a look. Sure enough, no heat — but the engine was making plenty of it. The […]
