A banner weekend for my S10. Tailpipe finally rusted through and fell right off. I’ve got to get that fixed because the exhaust fumes (of which there are plenty) come out right behind the cab. Hoping I can find someone to weld something back on there for cheap.
2012 SRX Performance Collection. Bought it in May 2014 with 30,000 miles. It now has just over 49,000. So, they’ve put 19k on it in four years. Needless to say, it spends the majority of its life tucked away in the garage.
These were taken by the detailer. He spent all day on it. Did lots of paint correction, too. Thing was FULL of scratches and swirl marks.
Washed, clay barred, and waxed. Do you think it’s shiny enough?
As some of you may remember, we took a Little Tikes Cozy Coupe and painted it up to match our Mazdas for our pregnancy announcement.
2019 Corolla hatch. Looks nice. I wouldn’t get this smurf blue color, but I digress.
Hauled two couches and a chair - not all at once, of course, but still. She has about a million things wrong with her (suspension is worn out, exhaust is rotted away, valve seals leak, etc.) but she just keeps on chugging. Comes in handy for days like today!
I brought my S10 home. She had 168,000 miles then and now has 171,500. She is in retirement and enjoys relaxing time parked in front of my house.
To no one’s surprise, they’re “declining assistance” on my seat problem.
I really like it. And, I never thought I’d say that about a Corolla.
February 2016: Four months and 4,300 miles after I bought my 6, I discovered the driver’s seat upholstery was peeling and flaking.
Got a Nest thermostat tonight. Install with my friend took 15 minutes. My house was built in 2001 but the wires from my old thermostat hooked right up to the Nest’s base.
Changed the CX-5’s air filter yesterday and managed to break the housing. Now, the corner of the air filter is exposed. The car still runs fine and hasn’t thrown any codes or anything, but I went ahead and ordered the part anyway (it was only $24.00). Fail.
You can add navigation to a 2016 Mazda6 just by purchasing the required SD card (on Amazon for $65.00) and inserting it into the slot in the center console?
Ours is a 2013 CX-5 Sport (base model), so all the hookups for a camera are there. Just no wiring. I bought a kit on Amazon and my mechanic and I are installing it today.
My wife and I headed two hours south last night for a Valentine’s getaway in Nashville. Left my son with his grandma and the dog with my grandma.
Specifically, Mazdas. Yay, Chandler. :-)
