Default Why is it......

We were on our way to the dealership today to place the order for our 05 GT and about halfway there We hear a ticking noise as we pass through an intersection. It increased with wheelspeed and as I made a left hand turn through the intersection it went away. Of course I had to stop right away to check it out.
We picked up a nail, a 4 INCH NAIL!!! in the left rear tire. We were fortunate enough to be around the corner from a tire shop who was able to just patch the tire. I dont think I have 10K on these tires.
Anyway it took us about an hour to get everythign sorted out and we wouldnt have enough time to get to the dealer to order, so now our schedule is gonna have us wait til Monday to place the order.

We think our baby doesnt want to be traded in.

Before entering your car, just converse loudly about going to a detail shop close to the dealer where you will be trading your car in. This will make the car happy thinking it's going to get nice and shiney. But instead, just go to the dealer. Otherwise, give it a blindfold (bra) and drive straight to the dealer.

It doesn't matter how many miles you have on your tires.
A nail will find it's way into a brand new tire.I would take a differant route to the dealership on Monday,just to be safe.

I'd take an adjuster if it'd go lower, not just higher!

Have fun with the dealer - ask for red top and black bottom...

They only go higher??? Surely it will go lower once it's gone higher, wont it???? Otherwise eventually your feet wouldn't reach the pedals any more and you'd look like Edith Ann sitting on that huge rocking chair on Laugh In back in the '60s.

Yeah, yeah, I know what you meant, it just looked funny!

The problem with the adjuster is the lowest setting is higher then the stock cruiser seat height. The rear view mirror was a huge blind spot for me as I drove on my test drive. Its about 2 inchs higher.
