80k miles

turned over on the way home last evening.

Looked back at Quicken. Since new, I've spend just about $1100 in maintenance including oil changes, 2x tranny flushes, 1x radiator flush, and new tires.

I'm expecting to have to replace all of the steering bushings if not the rack 'sometime soon' as the dreaded steering wheel thump-when-turning-still has returned.

Raybestos/NAPA rotors are on the way for the front end and will probably put in the CT-3 pads too.

Next tranny flush coming up at 90k, at the 120k flush I'll change out the water pump, timing belt, and serp belt.

Anything else I missed?

make sure when you replace the brakes that you flush (bleed) your brake fluid until it flows clear. brake fluid absorbs moisture - turning darker as it absorbs. moisture is bad for brake components especially ABS pumps & valves. other than that - congrats and good job!
