Thoughts and Suggestions as the miles increase

Hi all,

I know I've not been on here in a very long time. Kids and employment changes have a lot to do with that.


As I'm now pushing 30,000 miles on my 'flex, I thought I'd say a few words about some things I've seen and see if anyone else has anything to add to this.

1) Don't ignore the coolant. I replaced the coolant for the first time this spring. Holy cow did that make a difference. I don't know why, but the motor runs better. The old stuff was in horrid condition. I went overboard and put in the long life Amsoil synthetic, but I doubt that has anything to do with the way this feels now. I just think I had some really nasty stuff floating around.

2) Newer belts seem to wear less. The 20k replacement did not look nearly as worn as the 10K. Anyone else see later belts looking better? My drive faces look OK, so I'm still on the originals there.

3) If the scoot does not seem to want to start easily, check the battery. My tester showed it was fine, but it didn't want to turn over and seemed to drain quickly. Replaced it and it starts right up. I guess trying to push it 4 years was a bit much.

4) Hoops still rule. Have not tried any other tire and I'm still getting good wear and life out of these.

All in all, the vehicle is treating me well and remains a reliable and economic errand runner.

It this still the best place to get a reasonably priced replacement battery?
