My good ol' Sonic Blue (one of the first Sonic Blue's around when I picked her up at the factory in the summer of 2005) is now closing in on 4 years of age and about 65,000 miles.

She has really settled down over the last 2 years. Pretty reliable and bullet proof. I just keep changing the synthetic oil every 7000 or so.

I do have the extended warranty and the front end has the usual click noises, so maybe time for a stop at the dealer.

But really, the car is in great shape. Some body signs of course from all those miles.
Good thing since I've pretty much decided to keep the ol' gal for a while longer. http://********************/smile/emthup.gif http://********************/smile/emcocktl.gif

Your R is looking Great Kris!!

If that clicking noise your getting is "axle ping", I just gad that fixed Friday with the XC90 bolts. Worked like a charm.

Yup. Last time I heard it was about 3 years ago...It's back. Definitely a little axle ping. Most noticeable in reverse.

The picture was actually taken back when the car was brand spanking new outside of Katrup Airport in Copenhagen....But, hey, even 3+ years later she's not doing too bad.
