If you do not agree with these Terms, do not use or access the Site. It is your responsibility to check to determine if any changes to the Terms have taken place.
RideFix is designed to allow people to view, edit, and add information related to vehicles and transportation. All information is accessible by the public and editable by registered users. This information is not intended to be a substitute for professional advice.
If you are trying to determine what is wrong with your vehicle, using the Diagnose Car Problems Interface (also referred to as the Doctor), or other portions of the Site, keep in mind it is meant for informational purposes. Users are to consult an automotive expert to determine what is actually wrong.
Information comes from and is edited by the community, so there may be factual errors at times. Such disputes are intended to be resolved by the community.
Some information may be uneditable at times. We have selected a very small amount of information to remain under our control because we feel its permanence is necessary to the integrity of some portions of the Site. These uneditable portions mainly include Introductions to Problem Articles in CarPedia, that are directly tied to the Diagnose Car Problems Interface. We do allow most of the portions of the Articles to be edited, but we restrict what We feel are the most crucial elements to maintain the general, informative nature of the Site.
