He said that he doesn't have a check engine light on in the original post. With only 88k , I would look into transmission and or engine mounts because these being bad can cause a super rough feeling...

Anyone hear from him lately? Seems like it has been awhile since I've seen him around. He has helped me quite a bit since I started my jouney, I'd hate to see his good insights leave this forum.

Legender that sounds like a heck of a problem, mine with the car off would fall into the appropriate range but only overcharge when on. Yours is high even with the car off that seems really weird.

The weird thing is that it wasn't overcharging before I took it apart to do the bearings. I even ordered a new regulator because I thought that might be it. Maybe the new regulator was bad as well?...

HA-HA. Yes, you will probably enjoy this car very much. With 88k and from a dealer - most places I see charge closer to 10k. Sounds like you got a rockin' deal.

As far as I know, this is not true. Although it does make a fun fairy-tale. If I had to guess, even with perfect maintenance and easy driving I'm sure that car is on its 2nd transmission at least. As...
