Q. In July I bought a low mileage 2015 Nissan Rogue SV. After a month or so, I started to notice a vibration in the steering wheel, primarily when driving between 20 to 45 miles per hour at a constant 1,250 revolutions per minute. I took the vehicle back to the dealer, and they looked at it for a few days. They told me they found and replaced a bad exhaust mount and that the vibration was virtually gone. Unfortunately, that didn’t take care of the vibration. I took the Rogue to a second dealer and was told that transmission is designed to cause the vibration. I asked them why I didn’t feel the vibration in any of the other new or used Rogues I test drove. They just answered that the car is supposed to have a vibration and suggested that I call Nissan if I wasn’t happy. I can’t believe that Nissan has sold over one million Rogues, and all have a built-in vibration in the steering wheel. I really like the vehicle, but the vibration is annoying when driving on … [Read more...] about Why does my Nissan Rogue have an annoying vibration?
Why does neulasta cause bone pain
Keith Roach To Your Health Published 12:02 AM EST Dec 16, 2018 Dear Dr. Roach: I’m 70, Caucasian, slim and was diagnosed with osteoporosis five years ago. Before that, I took Fosamax for five years. I take 1,000 mg calcium citrate, 3 mg boron and a multivitamin containing 2,000 IU vitamin D. An X-ray showed three compression fractured vertebra. I read that taking more than 1,000 IU of vitamin D can cause bone mass loss! I started crying thinking that I caused the fractures from taking too much vitamin D. I’ve stopped the multivitamin and just take 500 IU of the vitamin D. I’m outside an hour a day. Do you know of bone mass loss from too much? V.W. Dear V.W.: Low levels of vitamin D are a common and treatable cause of bone loss, which can lead to fractures. It’s a good idea to check the vitamin D level in people with known osteoporosis. There remains controversy about the optimum level of vitamin D, but a level between 30 and 50 ng/mL is generally … [Read more...] about Doc: Does too much vitamin D cause bone mass reduction?
Yes, that’s a lovely Saab 96, so why does the look on that Meeths-shopper look so terrified? That woman looks like she’s using all of her might not to lose her shit. Whats’s going on here? Is that Saab the ghost of her former Saab? I’m confused. … [Read more...] about Yes, that’s a lovely Saab 96, so why does the look on that Meeths-shopper look so terrified? That wo
In the process of testing the 2019 Toyota Camry Hybrid, the car actually managed to hurt me, a little bit. I’m not talking about the existential soul-bruising kick that every painfully rational and practical and boring car like the Camry gives you, this is an actuall, physical bit of pain, imparted by the car to me when I operated one of its controls. You know how, on many modern cars, if you open one side window at speed you get an annoying thrum thrum thrum wind sound? Car engineers call that “side window buffeting” and it’s technically known as “Hemholz resonance.” I did a whole explainer about this phenomenon a few years back: “Air passing over an opening forms tiny tornadoes as it moves past the front edge of that opening. When those tornadoes, or vortices, reach the opening’s back edge, they make a wave of pressure that pushes air into and out of the car. Since sound is nothing more than waves of pressure, this makes noise. If … [Read more...] about The 2019 Toyota Camry Hybrid Can Actually Cause You Pain
When it comes to purchasing a new car, fuel economy is always important. Manufacturers are required to test their vehicles in line with a mandated procedure (which is detailed under the Australian Design Rule (ADR) 81/02 Fuel Consumption Labelling for Light Vehicles). We get a number of e-mails from readers each week complaining about their vehicle's fuel consumption and we thought we would answer the question posed by reader Tanya. Tanya asked how the fuel consumption figure on the vehicle's label is determined and why her car uses more fuel than the figure on the label.This article was first published in September, 2015Q: I bought a Toyota LandCruiser Sahara a few months ago and I'm finding that I can never get close to the fuel consumption figure listed on the windscreen sticker. Is there something wrong with my car? Why can Toyota claim the car is using less fuel than it actually does? How do they come up with these figures?A: Great question, Tanya. The figures listed … [Read more...] about How is fuel economy tested? Why does my car use more fuel than the fuel label?
