    I spent the 16th, 17th and 18th in Tampa myself. On the 17th the heat index was 110F. My son's 2008 RAV-4 handled it like a boss. But it's silver inside and out. Lots of stop and go on the highway,...

    Couldn't an excess of refrigerant also be the problem? I seem to remember an older post where a little under or a little over affects these tiny systems.

    Smoother ride and protects the wheels better, for sure.

    Welcome! Yep, if those qualities are your ideal, the Mirage is the car for you! Plus you get reliability!

    Thanks. I was looking forward to meeting you and Dirk, but I just couldn't justify the extra time on the road and miles on the car. Maybe another time!

    Long road trip canceled. Thanks to rising gas prices (for unknown, mysterious reasons), it's only $164 more to fly, and shaves off 16 hours on the road. But I am taking Delta, and I have a 1 hr...

    Don't forget ethanol pulls away from the food supply of corn, and is more expensive to distill than it is to refine gas.

    The steering feel (or lack thereof). Granted, I run the 14's, but you just can't feel the road like I could in my Fit.

    I actually think cylinder deactivation makes good sense in having the displacement available, but only using what you need situationaly. I was surprised to learn GM didn't invent it, and it dates...

    I thought it already was R134a on these things? At least up to 2020 models

    It's up there, but I'd rather be with an infantry platoon (or assault squad in my case) than in a sub. Or working the flight deck on a carrier. Hats off to those guys/gals.

    Yep. Core Temps are the most accurate. As a corpsman at Parris Island, had recruits drop out of PT all the time in the heat, had to take rectal core Temps and if high enough, rush to battalion aid...

    You could try it. I don't know how low those read, to be honest. Never crossed my mind, because, well, "ew". BUT (lol), theoretically a brand new one might work. You need it to read down to 40-50...

    My 2017 manual doesn't address it. It only says if needs towed, use a professional tow truck, then illustrates 4 ways to tow, none of which are flat towing.

    More likely to see a limit to how much you can purchase, if history is any indicator. I'll leave the rationing history lessons for Dirk, that's his specialty.

    Have you checked the other end? I know some of them got power off the stereo; could be loose?

    I'm sure she'll be good to go after this. But you still have the option to trade in later. Another 100k miles sounds very doable. I know you'll keep us posted

    Haven't had the issue, but maybe someone had the bumper off, or a fastener is loose/broken. Sounds like you've tried all the hood adjustments.

    Agree with a diagnosis before he leaps onto a new car (payment). But a multimeter is just a paperweight if you don't know how to use it. Also: Dirk, don't overestimate the diagnostic abilities of the...
