4:49 pm
can they do this? >> most of them will. it's a contractual agreement that you made when you bought the car, so you need to take a look at it. normally when they have that kind of deal, they make a very big deal out of it. fiat did it for a while. they may still be doing it. but yeah, they do not have to give you a loaner car even when fixing a warranty problem. >> john says, i've heard that owners of timeshares can donate their homes for fair market value as a tax writeoff. is this true? >> it is true. the problem is, you have to have somebody that will take it off your hands. right now timeshares can be a real liability. so you have two ways to go. some charities will take your entire timeshare off your hands. you've got to do real market value, not what you paid for, not what you owe, what the real market value is.
4:50 pm
and they have to be willing to take it from you. what is much more likely to happen is you can donate one week of it that you have per year, give that to a charity, offer to auction that off. you have to do it every year, but at least you're getting some use out of it. >> we have an e-mail question from jeanette. she says, i lost a money order. can i get it replaced or is it like cash? >> if it hasn't been cashed yet, you can go down to the post office and give them $6.10. you fill out a form, and if it hasn't been cashed, they reissue it. >> thank you, michael. >> good information. it is that time of year again when beer lovers gather in the north bay to get a special brew. every february, the russian river brewery company sells this
4:51 pm
beer for just two weeks. hundreds lined up for hours this morning just to get a taste. brewery owners say the crowds are smaller than last year, possibly because super bowl crowds scared them off. "abc7 news" at 4:00 continues. the big question for former 49ers coach jim harbaugh. >> when you look back here at the 49ers, is there any satisfaction seeing what happened last year. swh >> that's just ahead. then at 5:00, right in front of a bus stop, an outdoor bathroom? the san francisco view that no one wants to see. and the bay area company leaving a blood bath on wall street. that and more on
4:52 pm
