  1. Correct call on the thermostat! It's been CEL-free for the past week. AJ Mckay in Mesa was a great guy to deal with, I'm probably going to make the trip there for my auto repairs. I still need to have my tires rotated.... 😅😅
  2. Finally got the repairs completed, body-wise, last Saturday. Just have to deal with intermittent P0128 code that a mechanic has to diagnose. Did some googling and there seems to be a few things that could be causing it which is annoying since that could mean a few trips for diagnosis. The plus side is I can still drive it locally. The body shop was nice enough to throw in the grill paint instead of my sloppy plasti dip job 😀
  3. The company will take care of repairs and a rental (if they can find one with hand controls?). Such a hassle though.
  4. Not sure what the tech was thinking... or maybe he tried my hand controls at the wrong time.
  5. OMG we have not gone off-road in a long time and this trip was nuts LOL. I will some ibuprofen when get home. I've driven short stretches of rocky roads but this was a neverending one it seemed like. 😂😂
  6. Thank you! Planning to drive around a little tomorrow and Sedona via Schnebly Hill Road sounds like a good time killer :)
  7. Reviving an old thread... anyone know if it's possible to go in from the I-17 side to go to Sedona?
  8. Not funny! Had to ask a coworker to spot me 😭
  9. We have a 2017 Compass that previously at random would display 'power steering' issues on the instrument cluster. Each time we take it to the dealer, no codes found, or shutting off the engine and restarting would clear the message. Last month, Cheryl was in the Miami AZ area another series of messages showed up and this time they stayed. Dropped off the car at the nearest dealer in the area (on a Sunday) and waited a week before they were able to actually check it out and diagnose the issue. I was told the power steering motor is the culprit, a few more calls with service and we were told due to parts backorder, that particular part won't be available until June 22nd, ouch! It's just so frustrating, the repair and part is still covered by maxcare but if we were a single vehicle household, we're in trouble for when it comes to getting to and from work. </end rant>
  10. Well, almost 11 years have taken its toll on my front suspension with mostly street driving and some offroad stuff from a while back. Took her in to the dealer for some scary loose steering feeling when hitting bumps on the freeway. Both front upper/lower control arms, steering gear and 2 front struts were replaced. I had the Bilstein adjustable shocks on the front but the dealer replaced it with my max care. Lost the 1.75" leveling though but I'm just glad I can drive it again with no white knuckles. :) I thought it was the rear shocks that were bad but I know nothing about suspensions. It's still got the oem shocks that I read were more expensive because of the load leveling feature due to the factory tow package.
  11. Won't be able to make it, will watch out for an easy ride next time Enjoy the cooler weather!
  12. I'd like to tag along for some 2wdriving! Tentative for now
  13. Hmm I like the GoTreads one in the first post, small enough to just leave in the back trunk in case I need some extra traction.
  14. I've been slacking and forgot to post this. I went and took the GC to another shop that does mainly alignments (that should teach me lol). It drives much better now. The wider rubber does feel a little bit different coming from mud terrains.
