While not a particularly great vehicle by design, the 2001 Ford Explorer XLT I had was, and shall always be held in the highest regard. It was the vehicle I had during the worst of the worst of my drug days, and it never let me down. I drove it drunk, high, nodding off, all of the above, and somehow...

They seem to be less high strung than the S54. :iono: They have even more issues... look up what happens with the carbon in that engine ... They still spin the rod bearings... and they still use that epic 10w60 $18 a quart oil And 8 throttle bodies :thisisfine: Oil test is a thing, there's an after...

Bought it in 10/17 with 3/36 So a little more than 1 year, and 16k miles. Looks like no real reason to do anything for a year or so, just ride out the majority of your warranty, unless the deal of the decade shows up on your doorstep :dat: It's highly unlikely I'll make a move soon, unless I just g...

I feel you on the comfy shit. And the space. While I love my Silverado, the only thing I don't like is the gas mileage and shitty gearing. The cargo space is pure awesome tho, it's the reason I need a crew cab in my next truck because when I haul my bass gear to gigs and there's a chance of rain I ...

RAM lease is the most attractive option for me, NFG trukin' I don't want to say "need" but I do use the fuck out of my truck. I tow to TN, I haul motorcycles, I move shit, I tow utility trailers, so having a truck around is nice. Also, a luxo truck is super nice when towing to TN, it's a fucking ca...

E39 would be C5 replacement. The S62 is pretty bulletproof doe. I'm not giving up on the truk life yet, it's a meh daily, but it's comfy as fuuuuuk I'm hoping the fluid flush does the deal and I can move on, or it's a bandaid that works long enough for a GM recall/solution to appear or for the afte...

SS's are still over 40k used.

:nope:

Honestly, I'd E39 M5, they're seeming to be around 20-25k, and that's one hell of a V8 under the hood.

Take them out every hour religiously for the first week. If they're not potty trained by then, you're doing something wrong. A crate shouldn't be used as punishment, you want them to consider it their safe place. Be sure to schedule daily exercise and training activities. Also handle their appendag...

Any Lemon Law rights in the moist south? I'd get a lawyer for that, should I go that route. The Louisiana “lemon law” provides remedies to those consumers who purchased a defective new vehicle, personal watercraft, all-terrain vehicle or motor home. Under the “lemon law,” if your vehicle is out of ...
