I swear to God, go to Costco. They have an all aluminum jack with about a 3" stack height, and it weighs nothing. I've been using it all year, probably about 20 times with no issues. I also couldn't get any other jack under my car, but I found this one. Plus, it's only $99.

with a more expensive floor jack you get a better pump. a good jack should only take 4-5 pumps to reach full height.. the POS. canadian tire ones take like 39 pumps. that's the only difference i know of other then the larger more expensive ones are less likely to twist and fall over crushing you under the car.

Princess Auto has some nice jack for a decent price.

why you have problems jacking up your cars? Dun y'all have those lil holes on the side where the jack goes in? It can practically be resting on the body and still be able to jack it.

my walmart jack takes 20 - 30 pumps. haha.. and then it slooooowly comes down on its own ... i HAVE to use jack stands :-) ..

what would be useful... is to have 2 jacks with some sort of ramps you can put on them.. the car drives up onto the ramps... and then you can "pump" the car up in the air... cheap mans solution to the $2000 jacks :-) .. only problem is you'd have a 2 man jack not a 1 man jack.. which is a little dangerous if you're not co-ordinated

vinay, my guess is u have a trolley jack. and the bolt/screw at the back that u use to release/ lower the jack is a bit loose, maybe try to tighten it a bit more b4 each use and your jack shouldnt start to slowly lower itself....
