    +1 for this issue. We were on a long drive and thought we must have spilled a water bottle or some such, as there must have been at least a liter of water spilled before we noticed. A bit of poking around and I found the hose was loose, and just put it back on friction-fit.

    Same trip I had a tire develop a bulge (stock tires) and had a heck of a time finding replacements that fit - next time I'll consider a full-sized spare if going far from a big city. We were north of Thunder Bay, and not even the TB Mitsubishi dealer had any tires! I went with 175/65r14 Nordman Solstice all-weather - it was the best choice as it was the only choice and the alternative was 1000km of highway on a doughnut spare.

    And a final bit of trivia if anyone is interested - 2 sea kayaks on a roof rack, loaded with a week's food and gear, trying to keep up with traffic, hilly terrain, and running the a/c dropped my typical 4.4-4.6l/100km to the range of 6.6-6.8l/100km. Pretty drastic increase, but still better than many cars.

    I think someone on here mentioned that weather tech revised their floor mats because of this issue. <y passenger floor mat has 2 holes in it and came with plastic anchors to install below the mat and into the carpeting to prevent the mat from sliding forward. I think the weathertechs of a few years ago didnt have this and people had issues that the floor mat would slide forward and take out the AC condensate tube.
