    No more Caddys

    I used to have 3, then 2, and just sold my beloved 2000 DTS. Rust issues around the rear trunk floor. So anyways, I got my wife a 2001 outback that needed heads (bent valves from broken timing belt) she loves it. And last week I got a 2005 odyssey van exl-res cuz its timing belt broke and bent valves. Put an engine in it with 108,000 miles for 1400, 200 bucks for a timing belt/water pump kit, and 400 dollars for the brand new Michelin tires the previous owner just had put on last week. Engines in, everything seems fine....new tires, brakes, struts, shocks, sway bar links.... I have a vanilla envelope 2 inches thick of service history. I’m taking it to Myrtle beach this weekend with my wife, daughter, and 5 year old twin granddaughters. I probably won’t be around this forum much now, peace out and goodwill to you all.....

    Going Japanese.. based on my personal experience of owning a Cadillac and Lincolns and then one Toyota; that can't last long!
