  1. I don't visit too often, life happens I guess. From time to time I browse for possible replacements for our Audi A6 wagon. It's still going strong, but it's a 2000. Someday it may get too old and there are not many similar vehicles. Last week I noticed the Buick Regal Tourx. It looks like a similar size with AWD. I think it looks great, and it seems the GM 2.0 turbo is good now (2013-2014 not so much). Seems that Buick depreciation could make it a nice deal in a few years. Any thoughts?

    Congratsâ˜ș. Yes, I haven't been here in a year or so, but your post came up in my email. AWD Mazda Tribute w/5 Spd still going strong...

    Sad day here.

    Thanks for the thoughtful words. She was laid to rest today.

    Sad day here.

    My mom passed away early this morning after a long illness. She was 92.
  5. I applied some plastic protector on the interior of the Mazda. Looks nice. My wife has been practicing manual trans driving with it. Nothing broken so far :).
  6. Mazda timing belt kit, drive belt, and coolant change done. Lubricated the drive belt tensioner and idler too. Sure missed the Galvanized fasteners that Audi uses on their cars(that actually come apart after being exposed to salt), but it was relatively painless.
  7. Nothing! I've done nothing. But tomorrow I plan to change the timing belt on the Mazda. Should be easy-knock on wood...

    Back up to 6!

    We shall see, it's only 130 HP. It's not registered yet, so I only drove it around the neighborhood.

    I saw your post, but we wanted AWD for the winter.

    My wife wants to learn to drive stick, so I bought a semi disposable car for her to practice on. It's high mileage (170K), but has been maintained. Runs well, everything but the power outlet in the rear works. Has a few rust spots.

    Auditioning to replace Chris Evans on BBC Top Gear?
  12. How quickly the fleet changes when you look the other way
  13. Dropped of the wife's A6 wagon last night for inspection. Shop calls today to say it's not due 'til November. They are correct. Oops!

    Just dropped in for a visit after a long time. The site looks a bit different:) The bull is doing well down in North Carolina, and the rest of the fleet has been fairly maintenance free(knock on wood). I think it's time to fix the rust at the front of the drivers side rocker panel on the Jeep. Maybe I'll get to it this fall. The family is doing well, my daughter is almost walking, and saying lots of things, but not yet in English...

    Trimming The Fleet

    I recently watched the Taurus get loaded on a car carrier headed for its new home in North Carolina. It was an adventure to improve it and drive it. I learned more about automatic transmissions than I ever thought I would. I also joined 2 Taurus sites in the process, and had many interesting discussions. The car is now with my nephew. I recommended he join this site and become involved. I will still check in from time to time.
