If they are both in great shape, buy based on what you want, not based on what you fear. Either one could break down tomorrow, or run for another 10 years problem free.

Now if only we could retrofit a Tesla 100Kwh pack into the RX, and reprogram the battery usage. Then, mmmmm, then we'd have something really nice.

In Canada, -20 fluid is what we use only in summer just in case of a cool morning. ;)

If you have mud flaps at the back, contact between a flap and a curb can easily cause the panel to pop out of it's clips. If that's the case, just give it a shove to pop it back in place.

The inflator wouldn't help much if a tire is badly damaged in the process of going flat. Might need to include a road side assistance plan with that inflator.

Snow mode is like having two guys get out and push. It's not going to win you any hill climb competitions, but it's a nice little kick in the rear when you need it.

Looks to me like some kind of grommet, to protect wires passing an edge, but whether it actually belongs to the vehicle or not, I don't know.

Not sure how to define a few months, but the discharge rate is higher in warm temps. My own personal thoughts is every 45 to 60 days.

Mine is stamped 190509, and since mine entered service in August 2009, I'm assuming the battery is dated May 19, 2009. If that's true, your battery is dated March 17, 2010. Does that make sense for...
