Re: New owner and question of mats again

I like the husky floor mats. Same style as weathertech. Cheaper and don't have eyelet hole cut out on driver side to leak out water. Check ebay for deal. Can find used or close out sometimes.

Re: Dash Cluster stuck

Mileage is stored in the computer so when new one is in will display mileage from the computer. * buy 2006 or 2007 and not 2005 3 d...
