Can you search for exact phrases?

Is there a way to search these forums using an exact phrase match? i.e. If I'm searching for "drive computer", I'd like to see ONLY posts that contain that exact phrase. So far, I can only seem to do an "AND" search, meaning it returns posts that contain "drive" and "computer" somewhere in the post. Not super helpful, especially when the phrase contains common terms.

Re: Can you search for exact phrases?

Forum search engines are poor, and this one is no exception. Use Google instead

'drive computer' site:mynissanleaf.com

Re: Can you search for exact phrases?

Besides Google, also trying doing the same query on Bing.

FWIW, until today, I've never searched for "drive computer" here on MNL via any means...

'22 Niro EV
'19 Bolt Premier (bought back by GM)
'13 Leaf SV w/premium (former)
'13 Leaf SV w/QC + LED & premium (lease over)

Please don't PM me with Leaf questions. Just post in the topic that seems most appropriate.

Kind of a bootstrap thing when first learning about something without even knowing the terms to search on. Possibly they're looking for "VCM"?
I noticed you're still working with polymers.
