Did buy of Caravan at 3k over phone with salesman saying it is getting oil change now as we speak . Picked up seen oil change sticker and drove home. Looked at sticker later on and noticed it was to changed in 6 months or 21000 miles so I knew I was lied to. I just ran to 4500 miles it dropped a quart so I changed it. Knowing it was factory oil I didn't worry about it. Such a good deal so why get stressed over an oil change on a demo.
The Latitudes are good, but dang they are expensive.
Don't get that much severe Winter weather down here in NC, so I just buy their Weatherbeater line. I can buy them at RuralKing for $6.49 each. Have a set on my Olds that's slightly over two years old still getting the job done.
Well... 248kiles... And no issues with mine like that... Maybe something happened here... And it could possibly be something other than a part failure. Not saying that is the case in this instance. But it could be..
Agreed. I tried searching on the Altima forums and did not find anything. My parts guy also msaid he keeps multiple pairs in stock and sells them quite regularly, so...
Nice you could do that for them, you saved them a lot of money. If the parts dept is carrying multiple pairs then its a common failure without a doubt.
If I have my mechanic's shop change my oil I bring my own oil & filter, he doesn't care. Recently he charged $31 labor for the oil change but only $20 to balance and properly rotate the tires on our 2005 Explorer, one charge balanced out the other. Other times he's charged $16 labor for the oil change and other times he's charged $15 for a tire rotation and oil change. I can't complain because over the years he's done quality at very reasonable prices. He's also done work like tire rotations and didn't charge me. Recently he fixed an over $3,000 wiring harness problem on my 1996 Contour for $260 because he used his skills and looked beyond just replacing a very rare complete engine wiring harness. Over all I come out way ahead.
My way of thinking is that a snow blower has to be able to handle the end of driveway (EOD) plow mess without bogging down too much. If it handles that for you, then it’ll handle the rest of the virgin snow on your property with ease.
So with that in mind I’d recommend anything from the Ariens Deluxe line and upward. Good power and the only frill is “power steering”. Starts at around $1,000 I believe. I have an Ariens Deluxe 28 since around 2011. It does the EOD mess and also about 60 extra feet along the curb all covered with plowed snow with no trouble. https://www.ariens.com/en-us/snow-products
I still have this classic from my youth. It was fun listening to radio from around the world. I also did HAM radio back in the 70's, but never went beyond my novice status and morse code on a Heathkit.
What I'd like to see is the highest mileage car with no engine rebuilds whatsoever. Once an engine needs a rebuild imo it's no longer the original car with the original mileage,after all,the engine is the "heart" of the car. I remember people in the 80s driving pos cars that started knocking way before 100,000 miles. To me,that's when the car is toast and no longer its "original miles".
I will add that yes you should cooperate with police and disclose as required BUT keep your fool mouth closed when it comes to intent, what are you doing here, where are you going, beyond "I am a traveller passing through." Don't give in to fishing and if you start quoting laws by chapter the cop may start looking to mess with you or at least delay you for a bit.
The ones who respect the disclosure, locked box in trunk etc aren't the ones you want to worry about. They can tell from your mechanical (locked up) compliance you respect the law. It's the ones that start off looking to be your buddy then turn sour that you should worry about, and you can spot them after you've answered 5-6 questions in a minute or two.
I appreciate the effort to be 100% compliant to demonstrate to a state that has a hostile environment so that they won't trap you, but quoting law and verse is better saved for the courtroom. The less you say roadside, the better. "I am a traveller, passing through."
Another reason I want a Vette is because of their rarity. Not that C5s are rare in that they demand a high selling price, that's not the case. I mean rare as in I don't see them on the streets every day like I do Mustangs, Camaros, and Challengers...I can't drive anywhere without seeing these cars everywhere! They're as common as a penny...
