If your truck has a tow/haul mode, try using it. It should hold the shifts longer and the computer will not allow the transmission to shift so often (up or down).
I don't have much longer. I've put some miles on this truck. I have 95K now so about 5k more and I'm good to go. As far as tow haul mode goes, it causes the engine to brake quite a bit as your coming to a stop and shifts pretty hard. When pulling a heavy trailer its great but unloaded it blows.

Right now I'm coming up on 107,000 miles. The repair dude says I'm gonna end up having to get a timing belt put in. Apparently those things run like $2,000. Ughhh.
If you pay $2k, you are getting ripped off. Don't pay over $1k for it. $200 in parts, 4 hours worth of labor.

Also, you should get this done soon. I think Honda recommends it be done at 110k miles with your model/year.

Re: What do you drive?

I have a 2005 GMC Yukon XL 4x4 which is the larger Yukon, 2005 Ford Explorer Eddie Bauer 4x4 , 2000 Jeep Grand Cherokee Loredo 4x4. Yes we do need another 4x4 LOL. Had to buy the Yukon to tow the boat and the Explorer was such a good deal I could not turn it down. The Jeep is sold I think/hope.

Thank you I keep wanting to come back to this thread after I read D-
Raves post. Never go to the dealer either they are a complete rip off.

I'm driving the sucker into the ground because it's just the smart financial move. But part of me prays for it to break down so I can get into something else!
Hopefully you're not praying for the minivan, are you?

Re: What do you drive?

Oh, a 2006 Sebring Touring Edition, leather, all the bells and whistles. 2002 Saturn SC1 for my wife, and my old 1982 Toyota 4WD with the ol' 22R 4 cylinder engine that just keeps going, and going, and going........perfect for a redskin fan, its Maroon, and a little rusty. Has over 205,000 miles, just had a poor mans overhaul to pass emissions, and is running like a gazelle!!!!! (On 3 cylinders over 85%, the last one at under 40% for some reason.....?)

It's a V8 so it sucks up a ton of gas and it's been nothing but problems for me since I got it about 4 years ago. The heat didn't work for a year, so that winter was a bitch; I had to get the power steering fixed about 6months after I bought it; and the AC works but not well and its dark green so it gets really hot inside. But having said all that, it's got about 115k miles on it and I have little to no intention of getting a new car anytime soon.
That was BUSTED on myth busters.

Re: What do you drive?

I'm driving a 2003 Mercury Mountaineer. The V8 sucks on gas, but I'm getting 13-15/gallon on mixed (mostly city) driving. Comfortably fits the family (wife and 2 kids) and has the 3rd row seat, so we can get 6 adults (7 if some are smaller) fairly comfortably. We have 112k on it, and haven't had any major issues with it.

My wife drives a 2001 Honda Civic with close to 170k miles on it. It's a 4 banger, so we get 30-35/gallon easily. No major issues with it either.

Hoping to drive both vehicles into the ground and replace the Civic with a larger sedan and the truck will eventually be replaced with a Soccer-Mom-Fetcher, as that is what my wife wants.
