Well, I've been handed another basket case. This time, it's a family heirloom! My parents purchased this particular car in the spring of 2008 as a CPO with something like 23k miles on it. My mother drove it for the next 9 years or so, and my aunt has been driving it until now. I'm the only one who's serviced the car it's whole life up until my aunt got it, she took it to a small, reputable shop. Well, I've got a bit of a project on my hands. It's currently sitting at 180k miles, and it needs some love. The rear brakes were metal on metal when I got it, that's been handled with some cheap rotors and semi-metallics. The front rotors pulsate, both outer tie rods are shot, and the right front bearing is humming. The transmission is definitely showing it's age, however once you get moving it feels fine. I'm going to do a suck and fill with Trans Tune, run a couple hundred miles, then do another suck and fill. It'll either kill it or refresh it, either way I'm not too worried about it. It's got a vibration at idle in gear, I'm pretty sure the oil pan leak has finally taken out the motor mount on that side. Again, oh well. Aside from that, everything seems to be in order. The CEL is on, I haven't scanned it yet. I plan on doing that tomorrow when I throw the winter wheels on it. I want to get that figured out, as the remote start doesn't work if there are errors in the PCM. Other than that, it's a... well it's a 2007 Impala LT. It's about what you would expect, all things considered. I find it incredible that the W-body has been around as long as it has and still just works. Talk about solid, if not boring, transportation.
