Hey guys,

Thought I would do this one more time since it's probably been a while since my last odometer thread. Here's the loose guidelines:

-Year/Model
-Miles @ Purchase/Current
-Transmission Count
-Mentionable Repairs
-Next Car?

So here's the first one!...

2006 Impala SS
97k/150,103
Tranny Rebuilt @ 80k

1.) Steering creak/crunk when turning, from steering column under hood. What is that?

2.) Salt rotted mufflers. WOW WOW WOW stock mufflers are QUIET. Mine must have had holes when bought because it was never dead *** quiet.

-Probably Focus Titanium, Fusion V6 AWD, 200 Limited, or '13 Taurus SHO. (LOL I work at a Ford/Chrysler store.)

Ready Set Go!

What the hell...


2006 GP GXP
40K/ now 60K
Org. Trans, and no problems (I attribute to my overkill tune and 20K trans fluid changes)

Biggest repairs:

1 Wheel hub
1 Tie rod
1 ISS
Usual wear and tear stuff (tires/brakes)

Next car: Looking at used Acura TL's, BMW 335i, maybe Hyundai Genesis 4.6

2006 MC SS
90k/115k
Trans rebuilt at around 105k, could also have been redone before I bought the car.

Big repairs besides trans: Battery.

Next car would be the Camaro ZL1, unlikey due to price though, otherwise probably a cheap 4wd tahoe/blazer for a winter beater/tow vehicle (to the track).

Keeping the Monte so the next car will be a 2nd. Kind of up in the air.
