    Somewhere on this forum I compiled a list of all the Stryker Purple cars. Definitely weren't many - it was a crazy expensive color option, and with none to look at in person, not many people took a...

    This reminds me a lot of the Gen II side sill debacle. Just about every one of them corroded due to a galvanic reaction, and had to be replaced. Back then, parts were readily available. Now, not...

    Did someone accidentally slip with the grinder when they were changing the oil? That happened to me a few times when I brought my car to Speedy Oil Change. I think it's a common mistake there, and...

    Really sad - I never knew him, but he was a fixture here in the community. Also, way too young to die. Life can be too damned short sometimes.

    Weird problem - I agree with others that it's probably a short somewhere. I don't know what other devices are powered by that fuse, but I'd suspect it's a bunch of different sensors. If the fuse...

    It was the regulator - replaced it, reprogrammed the window travel, and all is good for now.... On mine, they noted that the cable was worn, just like on Koolasp's car.

    I agree - and if the car is at VE, they know how to work on these things and they should be able to fix that. Does the car have any exhaust work? If so, maybe someone screwed up when they put the...

    It looks fixable, but as people have said, it'll take some patience. You'll probably have to adjust both the hood and the side sill. If you look where the hood lip meets the door (right under the...

    I've had both, and there are pluses and minuses to them. The interior of the Gen V is much nicer, but I take that as a neutral because I really don't care about the interior. The Gen IV ACR was...

    Was it a recall car that previously passed and had the 10 year engine warranty? If so, that extended warranty they offered just saved the owner a ton of money, and got a 29,000 mile car a new engine.
