The Breeze, depending upon how it is optioned, is a pretty low-tech car. My mother has one, still drives it. Nearly 200k on it and its also like new. My concern would be more about AC system seals than batteries. Even if you replace the battery

I don't fear the riots as much as I do the MOB RULE mentality. A grand jury consisting of black and white Americans heard evidence (from black and white witnesses) and found no cause to indict the PO. The mobs rioting in Ferguson and elsewhere don't

'Cracked head', maybe, so far he's honed in on it being a head gasket. Maybe it's not an actual 'Tacoma' . I was thinking it was, maybe before the use if that name.

A little off the wall here but I have had RMS leaks with these motors as well as a friend with a 99 Trans Am that also has done a few RMS as well. I would try a MaxLife 5w30 HM and just a n ACdelco filter.

No, but it's not like you never use such food. You buy a little extra and rotate your stock. So if I buy five weeks of food over four weeks time, I have some extra food and have bought at today's prices, not tomorrows. With inflation, stockpiling
