My main battery was 80% the rated CCA so I decided to replace it. Finding an H6 was no dice after visiting/calling 7 stores. But a 94R (H7) fits like a glove after you just pull up on that plastic tab near the front of the tray. Auxillary batteries seem plenty but I bypass mine.
My Miata had a Panasonic AGM in the trunk that lasted 9 years and I had a wet cell on my riding lawnmower that lasted 6 years. Every other battery I've owned usually dies at 2 - 3 years regardless of the name stamped on the side. Load test them and plan on replacing soon once they drop below...
Not sure of the normal inventory but where I purchased claims to have 22 on the lot in the $50k-$61k range except for a couple. They have one two door and one 4xe on the lot else it's various versions of the four door Willy's, Sahara or Rubi.
Ha! Mine is nearsighted and not farsighted. She thinks the tank needs to be filled once it hits just below half! We've been married 35 years and I still get a kick when the fuel warning alert chimes when I'm driving and she panics.
Yes, learned about that when we bought a new minivan back in 1990 and the first vehicle we'd owned with all the electronic gadgets for that period in time. The battery went bad and the low voltage lit the dash up like a Christmas tree. It still had enough juice to start the car but the door...
True! Back in my youth you could buy/install sunroofs in your vehicle. Someone tried to pry open mine with a crowbar which busted the glass but also bent the frame and ripped some of my top. Luckily I found a slighter larger sunroof and just cut my roof a little larger.
There's a general shortage but one model might have a chip that's even further back in the pipeline or in higher demand across the overall marketplace.
Nobody has a crystal ball and the shift of finite production to consumer electronics when auto plants cut back may last 1 or 2 years. At least...
Mine has been down for the past 3 weeks as we move. Soft top has been down too so I just throw a cargo net over everything to keep it from flying away. I made 3 trips with a Home Depot high-sided 5x10 trailer too. Thank goodness for Home Depot since UHaul bans soft tops.
Journey was way outdated 5 years ago when we briefly looked at them. Only two new vehicles I've ever test drove that I thought were a joke compared to their competition. The Journey and an Astro back in the day.
Nope. I need someone to crawl back there and find it when driving under the right conditions. Oddly enough, it also depends on which way the wind is blowing at highway speeds. I've had the windows out and/or top down for the past 4 weeks.
