    Alright everyone, I have a sales story pending that has absolutely nothing to do with cars. We've decided to add a three zone ductless A/C to our home here in Seattle (we don't have central heat, let alone A/C). Anyone have any experience with these systems? If so, what are your thoughts on Mitsubishi vs. Lennox? Mitsubishi seems to be the gold standard in ductless and priced accordingly, but I am not sure if that makes Lennox systems bad?

    Any help?

    In-laws had the Mitsubishi, and it worked awesomely. Also, it had a remote...another that you can hog from your lady ;).

    Mitsu is one of the best. Lennox is no longer the good company they apparently once were. I would look at Daikin/Goodman, Fujitsu, or LG. With these a lot depends on the quality of the installer and their stability should you ever need them for warranty in a few years.

    I'd much rather drive the road than ride the cables way above the ground! I can feel my toes curling with the sensation of height in that picture. I had enough trouble with the short tram ride up the hillside at Altoona, PA, and
    Horseshoe Curve on the railroad there. LOL

    Ahh...the incline plane. Of course there is always using the stairs. 3 gazillion steps and dodging rattle snakes all the way. :s

    Happy New Year EVERYONE!  Haven't posted in a couple of days - just haven't felt too well.  Was in to see the doctor today because of recurrent sharp abdominal pains.  So he did some blood tests and scheduled me for a CT-Scan with contrast in a couple of weeks.  I guess this discomfort is to be expected according to him.  It is what it is! ;)

    Found another feature in the new car - it can be raised and lowered to accommodate getting in and out of the car more easily. It lowers itself at speeds over 25-30 mph.  Nice feature for someone like me who has pain getting in and out of the driver's seat.  The CLS400 had become so intolerably painful getting in and out of the car that I hated driving.  The 740i is so much less stressful on my body for entry and exit.

    Stopped off at the casino to pick up a baker's dozen sesame bagels at their Deli - they make them fresh every morning.  I just put 2-3 in plastic bags and put them in the freezer.  Of course, I couldn't resist playing my favorite slot machine upstairs in their smoke-free area.  After 35 minutes, I was up $277 - so I took the money and ran.  That slot machine has been very good to me these past 2 weeks.  Sure better than working selling cars!  :D

    The new heat pump by Lennox that we installed has worked really smoothly and has features our previous model did not have. I had searched for problems with various brands when we purchased this replacement and decided it sounded like a series of coils was the problem that got some people complaining, appropriately.

    I noticed in the brochure they offered the separate units. Like was said, a lot depends on the company you have doing the installation. They stood behind the previous unit I had for 23 years and gave me little perks along the way. I know they'll be around to support this one. So it's just like buying a car, where the dealership and service make the difference.

    Isell....I remember those mid-late '90s Edmunds forums. They were a trip, for certain. Certain posters come to mind as "pot stirrers". Most of the n'er-do-wells are long gone (that includes a few mods, too). There are still some folks still around from those days...you, imid, Q, jipster, oldfarmer, PF Flyer, kyfdx, stever, Mr Shiftright, probably missing one or two. But, those are the ones I remember. At one point, all my stats were reset. But, I think I've been around since '95-96.....roughly. I originally came in here looking for info and pricing on a (then) new mid '90s Pontiac Grand Prix with the supercharged v6. Since then, I've had 2-BMWs, 3 Caddys (one of them was my late Mother's), 2 Pontiac Grand Prix (both supercharged), 2 Mustangs (one GT and one Cobra 'vert), 1 Audi, 3 Acura TLs, 1 Honda Accord, 1 Chevy Tahoe, 1 Toyota 4Runner, 1 Mazda RX8, 1 Pontiac Vibe, 1 Hyundai Elantra (in my name, but bought it for my son). So, what is that? Depending on how you count it, that's 19 cars in 20 years.....roughly! Been posting at Edmunds through all of them.
    You remember a moderator named Tidester (Tom, I believe), g.g? I think of him every now and then when I log onto Edmunds. He was a really nice, cool and very smart man. Very patient with the ole Jipster. He passed away about a decade ago. Says a lot about this site that so many moderators,and members, have stuck around these many many years.

    When this subject came up, the old players we used to have here, Tidester came immediately to mind. IIRC, Kirstie did not mention his death until after the Christmas holiday period that year so as not to ruin them for us.

    We never did find out what happened other than it was sudden.

    Tidester use to post a lot in the "Global Warming" thread, which often got fairly heated. Tidester always kept his cool, delivered facts in such a clear and precise manner, it would ruffle the feathers of those he was debating. Sad when heard he had passed.

    I also remember a member that went by the name of MadManMoo. Funny guy. Was a car salesman. Had some good stories. One of which involved rigging a garden hose in the men's room at his dealership.Think he left after about 6 months.

    I belonged to the Mazda MPV Club many years ago, as well as this site. Saved a lot of money on that minivan doing repairs myself, that I had learned about from their web site.  I remember you couldn't link here. Usually I'd just write the "Mazda MPV Club" I belong to.

    I have a Goodman that's about 5 years old and couldn't be more pleased. Lots of Carrier, Lennox and others disparage Goodman. But, I think it's because a lot of installers represent higher margins than Goodman offers.

    OK....need some advice (again) from the peanut gallery. Called the dealership yesterday about the status of my CTS. Seems the wiring they need for it is still on back order. Doesn't make much sense to me...how can wiring be so difficult to get. Dealer service manager doesn't think I should drive it as it may be a safety hazard.

    Given they're letting me drive some very nice, brand new vehicles as loaners (an XT5 and now a CT6), I'm not too off put.

    But, the CTS has been in their shop for 2 weeks. Another couple of weeks and that's a month....when lemon law kicks in.

    Not wishing that will happen, but what if it does given past history? Go through the hassle once again?

    Yikes. Do you really want to go through that nightmare again? As long as they kept me in nice vehicles (maybe even nicer than your CTS?), I'd probably just go with it. If nothing else, it is keeping miles off your car. Of course, there is a limit. I guess if after 1 month, if there is still no end in sight, I'd be talking buyback.

    GG - IMHO, it's time to make the move away from Cadillac.  This is the third one with some major problems in a row.  You have just been unlucky to have the ghosts of Cadillacs past haunt you.  There are many posters on Edmunds who "swear by" their Cadillacs where you have been forced to "swear at" them!  How much more does a human being have to take?  Not much more - for your sake!  :'(

    You seem very expert on that process, so that makes you different from most of us.

    This strikes me as not at all the same as before. It is a single problem, not a series of mysteries. They are simply waiting for the part. Why that it taking so long is certainly a black mark for them. I would advise them to kick it up a notch given that there is a time limit on such things.

    WHEN I HAD A HVAC SALESMAN OUT ABOUT A MONTH AGO, I ASKED FOR A QUOTE FOR A GOODMAN FURNACE AND A/C SYSTEM. HE SAID I DIDN'T WANT TO GO WITH THAT BRAND, AS THE COMPANY IS POOR IN PROVIDING PARTS IN A TIMELY MANNER. HAD ONE OTHER SALESMAN "DISPARAGE" THE BRAND AS WELL. MOST OF WHAT I'VE READ IS THAT GOODMAN IS COMPARABLE TO THE OTHERS. FINDING A GOOD INSTALLER THE KEY.

    I don't recall the origin of this problem. BUT the dealer is waiting for a part that Cadillac may have changed specifications on and needs many units produced. I wonder who supplies the harness since I used to go by the Yazaki Headquarters in Canton frequently and suppose they have plants in MI as well as around the world back to Japan.

    The dealer is giving you great loaners. If this were another brand of upscale vehicle people would be urging you to be patient, so that's my 2 cents worth. This dealer is taking good care of you unlike previous problem dealer that sent you back out with your own car that was still stalling, losing steering assist, etc.. Wonder whatever happened to those two previous exemplars? We know one went to WI--is it still on the books there?

    What do you think of the CT6?

    If I were younger and more prone to conspicuous consumption I would do some shopping, especially when sedans aren't selling as well as SUVs. Do a GG or Jipster offer on something they have on the lot. I actually still love my 14 Malibu. It has a lot of premium features on it that most people would not expect, perhaps because it's an LT2 .

    So, what is that? Depending on how you count it, that's 19 cars in 20 years.....roughly! Been posting at Edmunds through all of them.

    You remember a moderator named Tidester (Tom, I believe), g.g? I think of him every now and then when I log onto Edmunds. He was a really nice, cool and very smart man. Very patient with the ole Jipster. He passed away about a decade ago. Says a lot about this site that so many moderators,and members, have stuck around these many many years.
    When this subject came up, the old players we used to have here, Tidester came immediately to mind. IIRC, Kirstie did not mention his death until after the Christmas holiday period that year so as not to ruin them for us.

    We never did find out what happened other than it was sudden.

    RIP Tidester, you are still missed by the old gang.

    Speaking of those who passed, I remember Mako1a who gave me a lot of Mustang info and who was it who gave us TO BE CONTINUED...?

    Isell....I remember those mid-late '90s Edmunds forums. They were a trip, for certain. Certain posters come to mind as "pot stirrers". Most of the n'er-do-wells are long gone (that includes a few mods, too). There are still some folks still around from those days...you, imid, Q, jipster, oldfarmer, PF Flyer, kyfdx, stever, Mr Shiftright, probably missing one or two. But, those are the ones I remember. At one point, all my stats were reset. But, I think I've been around since '95-96.....roughly.

    I remembert when Kirstie was "new" here.

    I'm sure there are more that I'm forgetting from the '90s.

    Stop sayin' stuff that make us sound OLD ;)

    LOL. HEY PF! Didn't you host "Mazda Mania"... about 2 decades ago? ;-) Owners of Mazdas had a weekly  one-hour rolling discussion, of the Mazda they owned. That was fun. Think it was cancelled after six months due to lack of participation. Zoom. Zoom.  :'(

    Yep, I was a host for weekly chats. Mazda Mania, Subaru Crew, and let's not forget the guest chats. One I particularly remember was the president of Kia. He was a great guest and really got into the spirit of the thing.

    We should do that again ;)
