Just prior to Ocean City did front struts/inner tie rod bushings/upper and lower isolators (KYB). Old mounts/bearings cleaned/greased reused. New Continental Extreme Contact DWS06 sneakers all corners.
Continental Extreme Contact DWS06 is UHP all season. 1000 mile round trip out the door to Ocean City. Initial impression QUIET tires. Almost thought about finding an autocross course!!
Have 3,000 miles on them now and was waiting to see how they handle rain. Got the firehose test last night with the remnants of Patricia passing through. Mucho standing water, overflowing storm drains and leaves. GREAT tires for wet! Next test snow. They are rated M&S as well so we'll see. Hope they are as good at 15-20K or 30-40K.
Last ride on Rt2 with old tires in light rain felt a bit skittish to say the least. Loving these.
23,000 in 6 months? wow. i used to do about 25k a year when i worked for myself. that was enough.
although i'm impressed by the casinoes vans out here. they go up and down the highway all day ferrying people to the casino from alexis.
the early 2014 has over 500,000 km on it. we do the services. it doesn't stop too often.
184,000 timing belt, tensioner, water pump (Continental) and new MOPAR belts/hoses and KOYO radiator.
Going for the long haul!
Damn, gassed up last night and saw those chewed leaves and green inch worm caterpillars all over back of car. Hate to but probably have to park out on the street until those bastards chew through the yard. Driveway will be covered in caterpillar tiny balls of **** soon.
