    Took it to Budds' last weekend for the 6-yr/144K service (even though I'm at 7 years and 83K), tire rotation, oil change, and fuel injector cleaning.

    Turns out the battery is bad. I only got 3 years out of the battery? My mother got 5 out of her mITSubiSHIT RVR oem one.
    RVRs are great cars and their OEM batteries are fine. My dad got nearly 6 years of stock battery out of his 2011 RVRs, just to counter your anecdotal evidence.

    Generally tire rotations and oil changes are fairly reasonably priced at dealerships. I stopped going to my dealership for service after the warranty was up. Cost a lot of money for the other bigger repairs.

    My 2009 Mitsubishi Outlander is still on its OEM battery. Added some distilled water to it a few years ago and still going strong.

    Default What Did You Do To Your Car Today?

    So, on the weekend I decided that a tank of Premium fuel every 4 days was too expensive, and I decided that I needed some more old school Cavalier in my life, so I spent a whole $406 on buying and making this thing drive decently.

    Itís got all the nice speed holes in it, itís got 302k on it, and itís a great little car to drive around. I owned a couple Cavaliers before my Mazda, Iím familiar with it, and pretty cheap so far.



    Not pictured, my speed, because it stayed at work for me to drive that home.

    Tinkerbell, hahaha, You're funny

    I am just figuring out the sound system for it. Tried to run a factory 2009 Versa Rockford Fosgate with a regular amp, and it kept protecting, probably cause it was WAY to hot when it went into protect.

    Found some issues with the car. Clamp on ewg was too big = leak, positive terminal clamp on battery was stripped = wires were loose, bov was leaking at base = need gasket. 2 hours later all fixed.

    Review of 3M headlight restoration kit on my parents 2010 Legacy yesterday & then used the remainder to do my car as well.
    It's hard to see from the first picture but the headlight looked much worse in person and was pretty foggy.

    Mask, 500 grit sand, 800 grit sand, 3000 grit wetsand, polish using rubbing compound & wax to seal.

    This kit works well for 2 years, then the lenses begin to go fog/yellow again. I would recommend it for the good instructions, good price on Amazon and the results speak for themselves. You just need a drill, microfiber cloth and extra tape with it as the supplied roll is quite small.

    Have a clunk on initial acceleration so swapped the rear motor mount. Think the shoulder bolt isn't large enough for the Damond mount. Tried my old Cobb but still have the noise. Bought a Vernier caliper so I can do some measurements and get the proper bolt.

    Ordered a new bolt from Mazda but it was the same one I already had. Ordered the the other one and it's also the same so not sure what bolt is shown in the Damond instructions.

    If that's not it I'll be trying to figure out where it's coming from. Maybe a ball joint on the lower control arm...

    At the cottage this weekend so it'll be a few more days until I can do more diagnosing.

    Glad it fixed all your noises. And now you can drive without the gauge pod falling over all the time.

    Got it on clearance at Racseng. A Translucent Blue (almost skyactive blue) Shift knob called Slammer.

    Let me know if you like my knob.
