    My experience with these reports is that they can be missing things or depending on the way things are written up can minimize reporting.
    I had a car that had the IP replaced with one that had guessimated mileage. It was listed as 'checked'.
    Same car, a bunch of the left front suspension was replaced due to damage, but I paid out of my pocket.
    Never showed up on the report.

    Repeat post from me. Ford has built aluminum bodied vehicles since 1989.
    There was a quote in one article from a Ford spokesperson citing 25 years experience.
    That bought me around to Jaguar.

    What major tuneup? The only tuneup I did on my 2007 was replace the irridium plugs at 130k (and they still looked almost new). 170k miles right now and the only non maintenance item was an o2 sensor at 120k miles. Front brakes are still original as is the clutch. If you really like the top end stick you may need to keep it a while as they are getting rare.

    Didn't the timing belt need to be changed? Maybe that was a particular engine.
    My '02 Explorer has 138k and other than the air filter, the PCV (<$20) is the only thing touched on the engine. Other parts of it, that's another story. :p

    I'll have to ask. You couldn't have paid for better weather. Hope you enjoyed the game. I'm actually going to check out some local hockey tomorrow afternoon with the boys. As Ranger fans we are supposed to support the Hartford Wolf Pack, but Webster Bank Arena (Bridgeport) is 25 minutes from my house, so we root for the Sound Tigers (I know, they are the affiliate of the Islanders).

    If you are going to a Sound Tigers game, keep your eye on Anders Lee. Lots of talent and potential.
