    Charles, welcome to the forum from Georgia Dawg country. Looks like a real clean Hoe. My suggestion as others have mentioned, check with dealer on records, they sometime hesitate. If none, see if they will do the Carfax for you ? that way they can absorb the cost rather than your pocket. Good luck.

    Got the Carfax and really nothing on it. Last service they replaced the rear brakes on 1/4/2018 so that's good to know! On Monday I am having my mechanic do an inspection on her so I know where I stand mechanically. Thinking at the very least I am gonna do the 100k service just to be sure with a tune up.

    Pretty clean bill of health except both outer tierods and lower balljoints need replaced. They couldn't check the uppers but assuming they are bad too. They say about $550ish to do it.

    Bought mine yesterday and driving it home last night and to work today I averaged 17mpg. That is in the rolling hills of Idaho/Washington.

    I lived in Iowa for a few years and actually drove a `98 Chevy 1500 2wd with a 5.0 and 5spd and got 27mpg commuting to Des Moines for work.

    I just got a 2005 LT w/ Autoride and only 84k back in January - first big SUV / Truck for me, so I'm still learning.


    FWIW, I pretty much only do stop/go backroads driving for my commute. I am right around 13.3 mpg AND i just got a tuneup. :)

    If you figure out some other solution, let me know - i'll do the same!
