  • Re: Is an old 60s truck a good first car?

    For an older ride, I'd want to get something relatively "common" where I lived so I could hopefully find someone to work on it and be able to find parts.

    Do you mind me asking where you live?

    camping makes for a fun adventure.

    One of the best cruises we did was living out of our canoe doing the Nahanni over 3 weeks. Just one portage. ;) Talk about being "disconnected". It's not really about saving money, it's just being outside so much.

    Took the Subaru in for an oil change (yep, actually paid for one for a change - $20 for the oil and filter, $5 for labor). Got them to rotate the tires too and asked them to check the left front for a slow leak. Typical Subaru alloys you know. Well, both front wheels were leaky so they dismounted and cleaned the rims, so it should be good to go for another couple of years.

    Total bill was around $52. Gonna miss Dave and Chris when we move. Still thinking about a new car this year though.

  • Re: Subaru CVT vs 5 speed manual?

    @jfl, I went back and fixed those posts; quite a few of those "codes" got inserted when the forum software was imported. Usually they were in news article quotes - maybe you composed in Word or something and pasted them in. Here's the link for the first one. If I missed another one to edit let me know (I'm a bit OCD too, lol).

    2012 Jeep Wrangler: The Big Loop

    Los Angeles, Sacramento, Reno, Virginia City, Bishop, Panamint Springs, Death Valley and back. Looks like fun.


    And yeah, that's a windshield crack on Edmunds' long term Wrangler tester.
  • Re: Trade-in for better fuel mileage

    You can buy a lot of gas for what it'll cost to get another car - there's not just the price difference, there's taxes and new licensing fees and your insurance could go up.

    Is it worth trading in your gas guzzler?
