smartphone holder suggestions?

Any recommendations for a holder out there? I would rather not have one that attaches to the window, or that is too far away from the steering wheel.

Thanks, Dieter

Re: Spare tire shake

I just got a flat and put on the spare tire and the messages and various symbols came on as well. I thought the car was possessed. Thanks for the post Africa_FS_07

Re: ABS Grinding? 2005 Freestyle

I have owned a vehicle with ABS before, except it didnt sound this ugly. Good to go it appears.

ABS Grinding? 2005 Freestyle

I have had a 2005 Freestyle and when i attempt to stop quickly on snow/ice/wet roads there is a big grinding sound and it almost seems like I lose my brakes? It may seem strange but it feels like through the brake pedal, and sounds like, Im trying to stick a metal pole on the ground to try and stop ...

Re: Stripped oil pan 2005 Freestyle

well my brother changed the oil and there was a gap between the double oversize oil plug and pan? The plug was snug though. 2 copper washers were added to fill the gap. It has stopped leaking, yay!

Re: Stripped oil pan 2005 Freestyle

Im going to try one more thing first, a rubber coated washer. Lets see if that works? for now anyway. A new pan would be the way to go, but I dont have the $ for it now.

Re: Stripped oil pan 2005 Freestyle

I dont have the opportunity to measure the double oversize plug right now. Is the thicker metal around the standard plug size just enough for the standard plug, or is there quite a bit more? I know im not specific here. I just stopped at 2 shops, and got estimates for $620 and $680 for new pans inst...

Re: Stripped oil pan 2005 Freestyle

I dont know how much material is left right now. Would there be enough after using a "double oversize" drain plug. Is the spot for possible re-tapping really tight? I would rather not go the replacing the oil pan route. It would appear that there would be quite a bit of labor involved. I did see the...

Stripped oil pan 2005 Freestyle

So it seems like I have bad luck with oil change places. It started when I took my 96 Ford Ranger into a place, and they didnt put the oil plug back in. probably a scam though for that one. Anyway, concerning my 2005 Form freestyle... I took it to a oil change place, and when they were done, they sa...
