I finally got a correct ABS module (three prong plug) and hooked it up. No dice. Still throwing these codes:
Shows maintenance records and such based on license plate number and DMV records. Except the new Mazda dealer I went to recorded my car’s mileage WAY wrong, so I had to submit a correction to Carfax.
Mmmm water beading.
Both snooze-fests in their own ways.
In my friend’s Fiesta ST. It’s not as difficult as I remembered from the last time I did it a few years ago.
Put a tad over 800 miles on it. I didn’t hate it, other than the herky jerky transmission and the fact that (compared to my 6) it felt like driving a bus. The Pentastar has plenty of oomph to move the van even with it loaded down to (admittedly slightly above) the maximum recommended payload. Averaged an indicated 23…
I survived the half mile climb. My fat ass was exhausted. But the view was worth it.
If you turn off “Econ” mode, the transmission acts a little less stupid but still jerks and clunks awkwardly. It seems permanently confused.
Technically, I drove half and my wife drove the other half. Anyway, the transmission is goofy. Pentastar V6 is nice, though.
The van blinked “low tire” at me this morning. Three tires are overinflated. They’re between 40 and 46 PSI and the door sticker says 36. One tire, the right front, is at 30.5. Hence the TPMS light. Sigh.
Getting a 2017 Dodge Grand Caravan instead. This Quest has 51,000 miles on it and is ROUGH. It even stinks. Has 3 different brands of tires on it, too.
Enterprise just called and they have our van ready. It’s a...
Wanna take bets on what we get? I’m sort of hoping for a Kia Sedona, because I like them and want to see how they drive. But, I figure we will probably get a Dodge Grand Caravan.
I’m nervous with new people working on my car, but oh well. The dealer I bought the car from was a Mazda/Kia/Volvo operation, but they sold off their Mazda and Volvo franchises and now they only sell and service Kias.
My grandma had a stroke yesterday.
Please keep us in your thoughts/prayers/whatever.
These are not in channel units so they won’t press on the weatherstripping and bother me like my WeatherTechs did. They have good reviews and a one year warranty.
This time, it’s so tiny that I am surprised I even noticed it. I wish I hadn’t. Because now that I know it’s there, it’s bugging me.
My anxiety and depression were hitting me a little hard today, so off I went.
