Re: So it finally happened

Don't jinx yourself!! :D

A Subie is a great choice, in my opinion. We went with a 2014 Kia Optima that was heavily discounted. I have almost no regrets - in fact, my only regret is not making...

Re: Transmission oil contamination

Re: Suspension/steering advice

Re: what's the right power steering fluid - 07 grand cherokee

Re: This thread mentions oil!
