    Update: it looks like the negative battery cable on the Tahoe is corroded, but that may or may not be the only issue. Bad grounds and a bad main fuse also seem to be common problems on the GMT900. I’m going to call my local shop tomorrow to see whether that’s something they can check out.

    if we decide to splurge and max out the budget on something nice, that is why it won't be a Porsche (especially since that would have to be a used one). I assume a base Macan costs just as much to maintain as a "real" porsche does.

    I suppose the cheap cousin Q5 would be a reasonable alternative, if you got the right trim level!

    I’m getting ready to find out...hoping for the best.

    So the Elantra is gone ... but not without drama.

    They “grounded” it with the wrong miles. 8408 instead of 18408.

    I refused to sign the paperwork until it’s corrected. Apparently this is kind of a process as Hyundai has to undo the return and reprocess.

    They told me it doesn’t matter... yeah sure.

    I have all the paperwork and it appears that the dealer is buying the car anyway as they put their plate frames on it and the warranty sticker on the window.

    Guy handling the return said they love clean low mileage returns like this.

    @new York car guy. Nice on the wife finding an arcane job! Very happy for her!!! And yes I would replace. Those. Tires. I’m the pilot but don’t get the OEM ones get some other brand of your choosing.

    @tJC that’s funny on the lease return of your 2006 Toyota Avalon, and the bank came to get it at your job, and someone thought it was getting repossessed. Lol

    Ok good news. My wife found a 2nd job working at a hospital that is about a 25 minute drive from our house. She will see homecare patients a few days per week and then work at this new hospital a few days a week.

    She did get a flat tire today on her way for some pre employment testing (W2, drug testing...). With 33K miles on the (rather expensive) OEM Continentals, do I go ahead and replace all four?

    Great news on the job front.

    I’d probably be looking at a set or at least two matching Continentals.

    @ everyone above talking about the Hyundai lease returns, or my mom returned her 2003 Santa Fe, they came and got it from the house with our truck. They even came to the house two weeks prior to do the end of lease inspection. We just had it sit in the driveway for two weeks and she already had bought a 2006 same one just in black 2003 was read my favorite color on any car she’s had Tuesday nice bright red.

    Thanks for the good wishes about my wife’s job. I appreciate it. She’s still not ok. She’s developed terrible anxiety as a result of what happened.

    The flat isn’t fixable. A nice gash in the sidewalk from hitting a pothole or road imperfection “just right.” I’ll measure the tread depth, but I’m going to go with the assumption that the tires are at least 2/3rds towards the end of their usable life. With winter approaching and my wife using it more, I’m going to look into replacing all four.

    Congrats on the new gig for the better half, Bradd. Hopefully, time will heal the anxiety, or perhaps dialog.

    And, while I may not be chronic, I am (finally) a car buyer! Tonight, I became the proud owner of a 2010 Mazda 3s Sport hatchback. Bought from a long standing, family owned Mazda dealer, single owner, very well serviced car.
    Will actually be registered in my son's name, he will now have a crash course on real world finance as he'll be paying for insurance, gas and maintenance. Poor soul.

    Speaking of Hyundais, my cousin buys a late model Santa Fe every several years or so, miles it up, and gets another. 60-something year old woman, maintains it by the book, mostly highway miles, yada yada. Her current one is a 14 (I think) - at 135K miles, the engine decided to call it quits. She had some kind of warranty that expired at 120K - dealer decided to replace the engine anyway. I'm quite surprised.

    The X1 is going to BMW on Friday for it's pre-return inspection. I'm not expecting anything but you never know.

    Interestingly, BMWFS did warn me that the dealer could put up a stink about accepting the return because only the originating center has to take it. It would be a huge bummer if I had to drive this thing down to Portland.

    That seems ridiculous! What, do they expect people to just remain tethered in one place for three years? I would say, if they don't want to take it, that's fine. You can just leave it in the lot with the keys inside. Your lease period is done; it is their problem now!
    I suspect it could also have to do with whether space is available on the main or overflow lot.
    This, I believe, is the underlying issue. Also, BMW dealers have to buy a certain number or percentage of lease returns to resell as CPO units or otherwise use one of a limited number of "passes" to reject a car and ship it to auction, so this might have something to do with it. Though I did just read somewhere that a BMW lease returned to the non-originating dealer can be rejected without using one of their "passes" - maybe @roadburner can confirm?
    That's odd; we never rejected a lease return.

    A Mazda shocking? My father's past two cars have been 6s, GF drives a CX-5; I'm now surrounded by 'em!



    For a nearly 10 yo car, it's in decent shape, especially the interior. Wheels are a bit rashed though, but as I earlier noted, newish Conti Extreme Contact DWS06 tires. And, winter mats! Two sets of keys!

    Of course, getting a hold of the boy to finalize the sale (register in his name & insurance) is like trying to wrangle sheep; "Saturday's no good dad, I'm going to U New Hampster to visit a friend..." Dude, we just bought you a car! Friend must be a girl...

    @tJC sorry to hear about the mixup on the mileage when you went to return the élan truck, it happens probably like mentioned above, someone wrote it on a piece of paper, and then couldn’t read the handwriting when he went to go type it. Or whatever the case may be.

    @ Corvette, yes I hope the shop can you use is able to diagnose the problems with the Tahoe, and yes you have to replace that battery terminal, I was the one on the other side in good shape? Good thing you look up common problems with those just so you have an idea. Every car has its common problems if you look ha ha Ha.

    Work just called, home for the holiday and had my cell sound turned off. Another 6 am run to Ft. Myers tomorrow, my n/s day. Had to postpone my dental appointment and the 4 wheel alignment but told them I'd be there. Already at 36 hours for the week so looks like I'll hit at least 45 or so, first time ever! Don't want to work full time anymore, don't have to which is nice, but since they need another body, just said yes. The extra income won't hurt and it's a real nice drive across Alligator Alley/I-75. Rained 90% of the trip back yesterday but the 2018 Kia Forte held the wet roads pretty nicely. And my iTunes worked flawlessly, so all was good. Was supposed to get a Chevy Camaro but traded for the smaller Forte. And since the Camaro was no where to be fond, they substituted a Chevy Equonix. Not as sporty as the Camaro but a nice driver to begin with. We also have a lot of GMC Acadia's in the fleet which is basically the same vehicle.
    So looks like another 4:45 am day tomorrow!

    8 cars? I had more than that by the time I graduated college! Well, maybe a couple less. but close.

    I had to do a spreadsheet to remember them all. But I didn't bother to add in what happened to them. Majority were private sales. No totals. 1 to Carvana. and I think just 2 traded in. A couple lease returns.

    that is out of 40+ cars.

    Good luck on the Q7. Sounds like almost a twin to the one I just traded. The adaptive suspension is a great and fairly unique option - you’ll love the 4 wheel steering. I was always amazed at how maneuverable it was for its size.

    For reference, I got $46k trade on mine, which was consistent with Q’s estimate. It was also an ‘18 Prestige with the adaptive suspension, but it had significantly more miles at 37k miles.

    I would have likely bought an early 3, but I could not get comfy enough in the manual driver's seat. Was not for a bit I think that they came out with a model with a power seat, and that at the time got kinda pricey. And I needed something a little roomier.

    Sounds like I’ll be in good shape then assuming it passes inspection. Agreed to $48825 which they said was a “pricing mistake”. It was changed to $50722 today but the sales lady had screenshots of the original price.

    Thanks, @marcogallo1986 ! It has come back, but it's not as frequent, so I think I'm going to try to change the pipe supports to something more shock absorbent and try a couple of other things before calling for backup.

    And, I dropped the Tahoe off this afternoon. The guys at the shop immediately said they suspected a bad battery cable. I told them I could see corrosion on the negative cable, but didn't know whether it was bad enough to cause a problem. I told them to go ahead and change the oil (using the second and final one from the Groupon package I bought), since it will expire in a couple of months anyway.

    @laurasdada - mazel-Tov on your punch! Those Mazdas seem to hold up well. There is a salesman I do business with who has a ‘14 or ‘15 Mazda 3. It’s a base model. He keeps up with the scheduled maintenance, but doesn’t really care about cars like we do. The car has well over 150,000 miles on it and still runs very well.

    Good luck on the Q7. Sounds like almost a twin to the one I just traded. The adaptive suspension is a great and fairly unique option - you’ll love the 4 wheel steering. I was always amazed at how maneuverable it was for its size.

    For reference, I got $46k trade on mine, which was consistent with Q’s estimate. It was also an ‘18 Prestige with the adaptive suspension, but it had significantly more miles at 37k miles.
    Sounds like I’ll be in good shape then assuming it passes inspection. Agreed to $48825 which they said was a “pricing mistake”. It was changed to $50722 today but the sales lady had screenshots of the original price.

    Let me know if you notice anything that looks wanky in the pictures

    Yep-it’s an 8 hour drive but I’ll stay south of Nashville TN and hopefully get out early- again assuming inspection goes ok
    Hell, they probably paid 48825 for it. Great deal. I would have said even the 50.7k was more than fair.

    '10 Equinox LS; '08 Charger R/T Daytona; '67 Coronet R/T; '14 Town&Country Limited; '18 BMW X2. 49-car history and counting!

    They said that was their trade in amount and it was inadvertently pushed to the website
