We had a wet and cold (for So Cal) December.

Might be that as well. You know in his new position as a big plane pilot with all those lusting flight attendants surrounding him. :innocent:

They're not mutually exclusive.

The show "To Catch A Smuggler" has the body cavity situation pretty regularly (I binge-watched most of a day away during my recent vacation week) . Usually the carrier claims fear for their life from whoever they were carrying for.

So, tried to leave work. Guess what? Firebird no start. Battery dead. Where's the frikken cameras? My Boss told me to go ahead and take the tool room truck home. So I took the battery with me to have it tested. It's junk. $170.00 for a battery. Ho-lee, Shazam! 4 year old battery. Done.
I'm a llttle worried about this car drama. I am not ready to buy anything @ this time. Not in this market, nope eff that.

If you have something to sell, it all ends up being a wash. A lot of dealers here arenít over MSRP

Probably the only reason I would do it

Which one?

Mojo31 01-11-22 03:36 PM

Rivian to make an e-bike?

Will Rivian make an e-bike? Patent application suggests so (msn.com)

It was a joke that I had to buy her a car due to my comments to her :)

It would be another MDX if I were so inclined.

"How did THAT get there? You must have planted it when I wasn't looking!" being a lot harder to pull off, given the circumstances.

Both minivan batteries died within a week of each other about a month ago. I just got a couple of $90 ones so I'm sure they'll only be good for 2 or three years.

Gotcha.

We've had our share of Acuras, and have liked everyone of them. Wife's had several MDXs over the years, and daughter currently has an RDX that she loves. I've had a number of TLs.

Just looked at the local dealer stock to see what they have - 9 ILXs, 4 RDSx, and 5 MDXs. That's it. That's at a dealer that would typically stock 50-75 RDXs and similar numbers in other models. 18 cars instead of the hundreds they used to floor plan.

While I like the idea of a new car, Iím actually a bit of a cheapskate in some ways. I mean, some of my bibs are ripping and I refuse to replace them.

My VW is 6 years old and going strong, my wifeís Acura is the same and I swear that thing will make 400k. Iíve looked at the TLX a couple of times, but want to wait another year at least before getting rid of my VW. 6 months of car payment = new bike costs.

We had one, an early Legend. Bought it from my old boss, and managed to get the smoke smell detailed out of the velour upholstery. It was great, till it started having problems related to being >10 years old, like all the hoses needing to be replaced, and then the clutch going out. Oh, and that time that the drain holes on the sunroof clogged up because he'd parked it under a tree that dropped a lot of small debris, and there was a rainstorm. Back to the detailer to get all the water out before it molded!

But I don't blame Honda for the issues we had. It was a 1986 car, fer cripes sake! For the age it was, it was very reliable!

My wife's Macan is 4 years old, and the warranty has expired. I've always been very leery of owning the Porsches out of warranty, but this one only has 40k on it and it has been problem free, so we're going to give it another 2 years at least. She's said that when the time comes to move it, she'd like to get an RDX since we don't need the size of the MDX. Since I'm wanting to slow down the work load in the next year or so, we are likely done with the price of Porsches from here on out since it's been my income funding that extravagance. :(

My wife had a similar vintage Legend when we started dating that she bought used. It was fairly beat up and a manual even. Loved the 2-door Legend in its day.

Amazing outcome. Medical helicopter crashed next to a church in Delco. Four people on board all basically ok. The pilot somehow managed to not hit the utility poles and wires that were all around.

A woman that I know with Alzheimer's was found unresponsive today. She lives in a minimum care center. Rushed to the hospital and found to have Covid. They think she fell ill and became dehydrated from not eating and drinking.
