The saga continues... The headlight cost me $201 plus labor of $20. Their initial estimate was incorrect. I sort of figured that. But what I did not figure is now that they have installed the new...

Ah, I thought the swivel might be a giveaway as to what type. Becasue I am sure my manual has both, so that would not tell me for sure :)

Thanks for the replies. I will need to check on which type I have.

I needed tires quick. And did not want to pay 225+ for them. I went to a local dealer who has been there for decades and we put 4 Coopers on. They were whatever size fit my car. 175 per, and they are...

Truly weird headlight issue, ever heard of this?

When I first turn on the headlights, they are OK. Then, after driving a mile or so, the left headlight goes out. If I turn off the lights (while driving) and turn them back on, they both work for a...

I went to my Toyota dealer where i get oil changes, etc. I took what he recommended that he said people really liked. BEST wipers ever! Wish I had a name. But I am forever grateful to that guy.

I am wondering about Michelin Premiers or HP Latitudes. I currently have the Latitudes, but the fronts are getting worn. I hate that, because I always have to buy 4. ADD.

The car that surprised me the most in this category is the Ford Edge and Escape. Both very nice cars. I may very well end up with a 2107 Escape.

A couple questions - My Rx350 is close to 50K miles

I figure brakes would be in order, but what other services should I be thinking about? New shocks? (I am getting new tires for sure)

Any engine stuff? Pretty sure timing chains are a thing of the...

I 100% agree. There is no magic when it comes to gas powered engines. Either they have enough power, or they do not. Or, in this case, they will wear out too fast.

They lost me as a customer. I would actually be embarrassed to drive this car. Horrible front end. Way too busy with way too many angles.

The RX350 was their best seller. They must have been bored...

I completely agree. Thigh support is lacking for no good reason in many cars. Makes a huge difference to me. It is one of the major factors as I am currently shopping around to see what is out there.
