  1. New from Virginia

    Welcome and nice ride. I am in C'Peake.....Are we neighbors?
  2. Hi from Tampa Bay! City Wagon Eco Boost

    Maybe itll get better when it breaks in. My 2012 has 205K on it and gets 27 on the highway, 23 in the city
  3. Hello from New England!

    Welcome to the group. Lotta good info here
  4. Fuel efficiency

    My pet peeve is pedestrians with the right of way in parking lots. Makes no sense to me. Pedestrians are far more maneuverable than cars. Pedestrians don't waste fuel while they are waiting. Pedestrians have far better visibility that persons in cars. About ninety percent of pedestrians have come to believe that the privilege afforded to them because they are on foot has become more than an entitlement, it is a license to take their good sweet time without regard to who they might be holding up. They are herding the kids, fumbling for keys, talking on the cell phone, gawking around and just generally skylarking. It is just counter-intuitive. Then there are those speed bumps. When I am in a parking lot, I play a little game. After I pass over a speed bump, I try to see how fast I can go before I come to the next speed bump. Actually my last statement about the game, isn't true, but sometimes I feel that way.
  5. Fuel efficiency

    Just checked mine again and when doing nothing but city driving it is down to about 23 MPG.
  6. Hello from St. Louis

    You just have to make sure to close the screen door
  7. Greetings from Huntington Beach California

    I like "mrtns" comments better than mine.....I may have come across as overly critical. In truth I would buy another one of these trucks in a minute. In fact I will be in the market in about six months and I will actively seek to get another 2010 to 2013 TC. They are serving me well as a business asset.
  8. Greetings from Huntington Beach California

    Welcome to the group...... I am new here as well but I have already received some good insights. I own two TC (2011 ans 2012) and use them for business....Restaurant, catering, delivery and food truck. You would probably be looking for a more recent issue which is likely a good idea. One of the things I have come to grips with is the fact that the 2011-2012 have some annoying shortcomings. I don't regret buying these truck because I got them for a song. I just could have been better prepared. So it would serve you to familiarize yourself with the features of each marque. And this is a fabulous place to do it. Welcome.
  9. Oxygen sensors

    Has anyone swapped out oxygen sensors in a 2011 or 2012 TC? Photos would be helpful
  10. Anyone have experience swapping out the O2 sensors in a 2011 and 2012 TC. Photos would be helpful, since I am pretty dense.
  11. Hello from St. Louis

    Sheeesh! I am crowded out by the subsurface navy
  12. Hello from St. Louis

    To Boomerweps, When I saw your handle, I thunk so. Retired Surface ET and W4.
  13. Hello from St. Louis

    I like bread because it is always loafing. Nyuk, Nyuk, Nyuk. Anyway, welcome to the forum.

    DBV, I was an ET in the Navy and taught electrical engineering in the university, so I know where-from you speak. My sense is that while the customer may not realize it, he probably does not want the shop to have any spools of wire for fear their techs might try to use it. I think the reason why they use the scotchlocks is that they can be installed without the use of sharp instruments. The people there (as you imply) are really just kit installers. (At least that is the case at most of the shops here.) My antenna hits the open garage door but that is about the only problem I have (Mine are 2011 and 2012 models), but I don't do Ham radio. Heck I almost never listen to the FM radio in the darned trucks. I love LEDs. In this day and age, they are the only option that makes any sense.

    Welcome to the group. You said "factory remote start". If it does not have to be "factory" you might get a after market group like a car audio place to do it for under 200.00. The locals here in Chesapeake, VA advertise lower prices but they always find ways to get the final figure to a point where it makes sense for them to open the garage door.
