Re: Electronics issue

Yes. The dealer found an intermittent short in the output speed sensor. Since it was replaced, I have not experienced the problem.

Re: Transmission Cooler Leaking

Well I guess I am the luckiest of all of us who suffered through this. I am getting my tranny cooler replaced under my 7yr 100k mile extended warranty. My '08 T/X now has about 94.5k on it. The dealer said the whole front end needs to be removed so there is a lot of labor costs associated with it. T...

Other that the airbag light, all other symptoms I can tie to the car not knowing what speed its speed is. I assume that if I knew more about airbags I co...

Re: Electronics issue

I was unable to pull the codes, and when I went to dealer 2 days later, they couldn't find any issues. I'm contemplating getting a data logger of some kind. I want to get this solved before my 7yr 100k warranty expires.

Re: Extended Warranty?

I got the premium (or whatever the top one is called) that takes me to a total of 7 years 100k for $1800 when I bought the car new. I bought it for peace of mind.
@ 60k now, so we'll see if I win the the gamble soon.

Re: Redline - Water Wetter or Royal Purple - Purple Ice?

Yes, but yours is three years newer. 58,000 miles on a three-year-old car is not exactly low mileage!
