Dysfunctional search?

I have been trying unsuccessfully to use the search function today. I enter the phrase "used car" (I am looking for posts to see if there is a formula out there for odometer miles vs. price off list...basically what each mile on odometer is worth in used car price) and the "New Posts" list comes up! Grrrrr!!!

I have successfully used the search function in the past, so cannot figure out what I have done incorrectly this time.

I don't seem to have that result. When you search "used car" the search engine ignores the quotes and will search for "used" OR "car." If you want the results to show both search used AND car.

No more lawyer stuff, no more political stuff, so no more CYA
