Any time there's precipitation the temp jumps above 40 in VA. The weather is toying with us.

You just saved yourself $607.81. You can guess how I know that number precisely...probably because it was recent

Rinsed all the salt off of it.


Won't get a thorough proper spit shine inside and out until all this snow and road grime goes away.

True that. Supposed to be in low 40s this Friday - just 3 days after 2F.

Not really sure what I did... it was a lot of drifted snow, and I was wearing my big -70* rated boots while I was mashing on the pedals... I guess anything is possible??

I called a dealership's part's department before I had arranged the tow truck... they indicated $920 CAD with taxes for the driveshaft. I figured better to use my CAA/AAA towing to get it back to the dealership instead of fixing it myself!!

Wow! Now that is expensive. It makes my front drive shaft replacement look like quite valuable. I get home tonight and will post the breakdown of what mine cost.
