Still outside my house, but it's 8v, and red...

Service

3 out of 5

Anything covered by Network Q was done without question. That said, only the electric wing mirror switch failed under warranty while I had it.

No rust problems at 60,000 miles.

Engine
Front engine mounting 'disappeared' taking exhaust down with it. Not covered by Network Q.
