    How many miles are too many...?

    Thank you 150, for another one of your posts which takes up several FEET of my computer screen - I'm sure he's interested in ALL of those examples Golly, I'm glad I don't live on the West Coast - Prices there are a bit ridiculous!! For comparison, I bought our 2014 TC from a dealer in Georgia almost 3 years ago with 12,000 miles on it and paid $15K. It's an XLT with leather and had never been sold. Sat on the dealers lot for more than a year and then they titled it and used it as a dealer loaner vehicle for a year, so when I bought it, it still had 2 years of the 3 year, 36K warranty remaining How many miles are too many? That really depends on how it was used and serviced. There have been Gen 2 transmission failures on vehicles well short of 100K miles . . . . which has caused many of us to begin servicing our 'lifetime' transmissions early on - A fluid change every 25K or so I know I wouldn't be interested in one with 160K on the clock and especially NOT at $10K - I much prefer to buy really low mileage vehicles for $10K off the sticker price and let someone else eat the depreciation, while I put on most of the miles Don

    Those rubber wire boots do remove, and you can run new wiring alongside OEM wiring. I did it with my lift gate to install the backup camera. But with a door, it may be easier to run wiring once you remove the door interior panel. You should have enough access to run your wiring using "fish tape" and lubricant. through that rubber boot, without removing the rubber boot.. Yes, there really is a special lubricant used for pulling wires. With the right tools, the job is much easier. Only problem is that if you're not an electrician, you wonder if you want to send $$$XXX for those tools to do a simple small job.
