Years Riding: Longer than most of you have been alive. And I'm still slow.
How you found us: The voices in my head told me to come here
Thus far the Aamco shop in Crystal Lake has treated us OK. I'll keep an eye on them, as I don't trust most shops.
I'm mixed on quickly selling it. With 98k on it, this really is the first significant problem I've had. I just keep thinking spending $40k more to get a new one vs. a couple $k on ongoing repairs and letting Grace run it into the dirt. #1 son is also getting close to needing a ride and the MDX used is better than anything I had till much later in life.
There is nothing firm, nothing balanced, nothing durable in all the universe. Nothing remains in its original state, each day, each hour, each moment, there is change. Change is the essence of life. Embrace change as you do life. To fight change is to live in the past.
