    Thank you, I drive about 5-6 k/year at most. (I'm disabled due to severe spine issues) I've been looking tonight on car guru, and there are several 13-15ish with under 80ish for 14-16,000. Need to check things out. Fortunately I've got coverage for substitute transportation. I got hooked up with a 2019 Hyundai Tuscon. Nice ride.

    I believe you are too late, Enbloc got that earlier, but if you guys want to go to the bone yard, buff away!
    Naw, really I'd like to buff out the last 20 hours.

    You guys are all so great here, a little levity and genuine concern has made me feel so much better! Thanks to all. G'nite!

    THAT must be why you haven't been coming to the NES meetups!

    Hope you are feeling better.

    I do have the ok to drive short distances now, 15 min or so, wearing my back brace. Maybe a Dunk run soon.

    Thanks, his concussion is getting better every day.
    Today I found a 2013 RAV4 XLE today 30,200 miles. I'm bringing it to (my neighbor) the mechanic tomorrow for a thorough evaluation. Fingers crossed, sounds too good to be true which usually means just that, lol

    You'll need at least a dozen NES ovals to repair that.

    FIFY.

    I just bought a Rav4 from Bernardi Framinigham. The salesman was very professional and didn't pull any of that Zig Ziglar crap on me.

    The closer in the little office was a slimey as they come. Even after I said "I respect your job is to take as much money from me as possible, but I know the markup on these extras is at least 300% and I am not interested unless you will show me the dealership cost and we can talk percent over cost", he continued the hard sell and even used the classic Ziglar "Fear of loss close" talking about how unreliable modern Toyotas are and that I will go broke unless I buy the overpriced post warranty service contract. It had all the class of a timeshare condo presentation.

    He even thought I was stupid enough to fall for his line that the $500 doc fee reflected the actual cost of storing the sales records for 7 years.

    Wow. Our Dunk's delivers. I hope you at least have coffee at home? I can't imagine going more the 6 hours or so without coffee... tops...

    Do not be tempted by Hyundai Santa Fe. I just had to rebuild a transmission and replace a catalytic converter at 137000. Now the AC is broken.
