Re: Car Repair [Maintenance vs. repair costs]

This thread is now in the Personal Consumer Issues forum (car costs). I also retitled the thread. I think you are looking at 2 separate issues- First, normal maintenance costs which must be done at the specified intervals. Those costs are known in advance, so you can predict what's needed. Second, r...

Re: Vanguard Managed Payout to add new fund

From the follow-up posts, it sounds like Vanguard is trying to be competitive in this corner of the market; which are customers defined as high net-worth individuals or institutional investors. Key to their planned approach is that the...

Re: Buying a used motorcycle, borrow to avoid scam

You're over-thinking here. Consider that the bank is a commercial institution that deals with many kinds of titles on a daily basis. I'm guessing they use a 3rd party service to check the title and probably have insurance to protect themselves if anything goes awry. The by-far hands-down best pr...

Re: Buying a used motorcycle, borrow to avoid scam

I suggest you research the process on the transfer of title, which is what happens when you purchase a motor vehicle.

Google "how to check if motorcycle title is clean". The magic happens at the DMV (or Notary tag place) where the title transfer is certified.
