I’d like to start with a huge thank you to everyone that watched and commented on my video debut last post. So far the view count is 1620, which to be honest, is about 1500 more than I expected. It was a lot of fun to make & I may be doing more videos as a result.
I followed some advise and emailed the video to Some Acura & Honda Execs. I’m not sure how they felt about the video, because I never heard anything back. I did hear back from one PR person with a “Thanks”. But other than that, crickets. Needless to say I was pretty bummed out. I’m not sure what I was expecting, but a little feedback would have been nice for my efforts. Oh well.
So we have finally arrived at 490,000 miles with only 10,000 to go! I have a feeling these last 10k miles will go by pretty quick. At least I’m hoping they will. The princess is getting nervous and will not drive the TSX anymore until I hit 500k. It seems every time she takes it out to run an errand, some one almost plows into her & she doesn’t want to be the one that is responsible for the TSX not reaching it’s lifes goal. She rarely drives it any more any way since she got the RDX.
I finally got the front end vibration taken care of. Sure enough it was the AM axle the shop put in for repairs on the last wreck. So at this point, everything that I got either used or aftermarket in the right front suspension, has since failed and been replaced with OEM. The lesson here I guess is to just step up and do it right the first time. Using AM ended up costing me more in the long run. I still am a big supporter of used parts though. They are still OEM parts & can save a lot of money in the right circumstances. Using used for suspension or safety items can be risky though. So be careful with what you’re replacing. Sometimes it’s just worth stepping up & getting OEM for certain parts.
I love driving through Utah down along the mountain ranges. It’s just beautiful!I spotted this little trike cruising around town a couple weeks ago. I’ve never seen one before & tried getting ahead of it to get a glimpse of the front end, but this guy was ripping around pretty good. It was a neat little 3 wheeler with a “Stallion” badge on it. So I checked it out online when I got home. When I did, I realized why I’ve never seen one before. They start at $34,000! Yikes.
Personally, I think I’d rather have the Slingshot. Starting at $25,500 it seems to have more bells & whistles & looks a hell of a lot cooler.
Well guys, I’ll be posting every 1,000 miles from here on out. Lets hope that no one plows into her for the next few months! See you again soon!
