2002 SL2
Default Quick rant about my SL1...

I knew I rushed into buying this car...overpaid a bit also. And I don't expect everything to be perfect, but now I feel there's just one issue after the other.

I've replaced most parts on the cooling system, OEM mounts, interior upholstery clean, and new stereo(which sounds damn good with stock speakers)..... But now the PS pulley is wobbling and the tensioner is bouncing. So I will definitely be replacing those.

And then I realize that my rotors are warped, and I'm baffled that I didn't notice the brake pedal shutter when I bought it....it should have been obvious. I was just in a hurry to buy a vehicle at the time so I wasn't thinking clearly.

So I now have to fork out $300 to keep this car running properly. I will do it since this is my DD, but I feel a bit exhausted....and broke. I just want a decent period of time where nothing NEEDS to be done and I can just drive the car and enjoy it.

REWARD EXCELLENCE!

look at the bright side almost all the parts are dirt cheap and the car is very easy to work on and once you fix all the issues that came with the car you bought you will have a good daily driver
