    My car wash guy is 100% accountable for all damages.

    Of course, it happens to be me.
    I used to have a car wash guy like that... but, he is too darn lazy to wash the car, so I had to go back to getting it done at the car wash.

    Falken Sincera SN828 is what's on there now.

    Bought them on 10/10/14 and my car had just over 18K on the clock. Now I'm at 30,5xx miles. These had a 50,000 mile treadwear warranty.

    Sheesh.
    You needed tires at 18K miles? And, now again at 30K?

    Hey Mario, ease up a little... ;)

    Anyway.. is this on the Elantra?

    Luckily my VW store is less than 4 miles from where we live, so stopping by isn't an issue. If it were where the Honda dealer is, then I'd not be real happy as it is out of the way for the majority of trips we take. Luckily, all our dealerships are within a few miles except the Nissan store.
    Must admit that the Hyundai's we've owned have been pretty stellar with the Accent having one warranty issue and my Tucson being almost perfect save for a piece of door trim coming off. Japanese/Korean brands tend to be pretty cheap to keep but the driving experience is pretty boring...I knew after driving the wife's A3 that I wanted that same driving thrill. The first drive of the Golf was so similar that I just knew the Tucson would be gone within the month...and it was. Would I do it again knowing what I know now? Absolutely but I'd have waited for the 2016 model to come out as I really want the usb ports and the android radio that the new models have...consider this a major faux pas on VW's part. Why not put these two things on a new model but wait till the second year of production to add them!! Really pissed off about this as I would've liked both things in my Golf.

    The Sandman :@ B)
    I bet the VW store wishes you lived farther away.. ;)
