    I thought there would be pictures of you actually driving the car :-)

    Better speakers is not a bad alternative though.

    Last week replaced both rear wheel bearings, then ordered a front wheel drive hub removal tool! Should make the next set easier. This week had to replace the ETM orginal white label at 237K miles!

    - Oil change: 5W30 Pennzoil Platinum (already had two jugs on the shelf), Mahle filter.
    - Air filter
    - Tire rotation
    - Changed the angle gear fluid (so EASY with the drain plug, took 5 minutes).
    - Transmission drain and fill (3.25 quarts of Valvoline Import full synthetic).
    - Checked and topped off all the fluids.
    - Vacuumed it out.

    225,000. Still a great car!

    i had my rear hatch door latch replaced, it was stuck in CLOSED / LOCKED position. i read a few forum threads and learned this is not all that uncommon. Earlier model years have a manual / key option for operating the rear door, but my 2008 does not, it operates only electrically. my problem was the latch mechanism not electrical. I read plenty of posts about how to jimmy it open from inside the back of the car (pry off the interior panel, stick a long screwdriver down there etc etc), but little info about how to repair it / fix it for real. The parts were 210 bucks and the labor was another 220.
