  1. How do you like it? We wanted a larger size wagon with AWD, and choices were basically the Outback or this, and we didn't like the Outback. We like it, Buick reliability rates high these days, and the year end incentives sealed the deal.
  2. Hi All, It's been a long while. I hope your holidays are enjoyable! I have a situation that some of you guys and gals may be able to shed some light on. An elderly couple that are long time family friends have a 2002 Grand Marquis with a significant water leak on the passenger side of the windshield cowl area. An online search shows me that it could be debris clogging drains, the gasket for the HVAC inlet, or the right side of the windshield seal. Does anyone with a Panther platform vehicle have more insight/suggestions for me/them? They are on a limited income, and I would like to prevent them from spending too much/being ripped off. On another note, things are good, the fleet is larger(up to 7)(see attached new 2018 Buick TourX picture), and our daughter is already 3 1/2. Time flies.
  3. 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?
  4. 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...
  5. Thanks for the thoughtful words. She was laid to rest today.
  6. My mom passed away early this morning after a long illness. She was 92.
  7. 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 :).
  8. 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.
  9. Nothing! I've done nothing. But tomorrow I plan to change the timing belt on the Mazda. Should be easy-knock on wood...
  10. We shall see, it's only 130 HP. It's not registered yet, so I only drove it around the neighborhood.
  11. I saw your post, but we wanted AWD for the winter.
  12. 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.
  13. Auditioning to replace Chris Evans on BBC Top Gear?
  14. 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!
