My little red Vagon is going to the dealer today for its 40,000 mile check up - fluids, brake pads, alignment, balance, etc.
Six years and 10 months old and the V Wagon has been one of the best muscle cars I've ever owned. Routine maintenance, tires and gas.
Time to treat it to a little TLC.

Turns out the 40K checkup is going to be a little more expensive than expected.

Both rear shocks are leaking - ouch! ~1300

Fronts tires need to be replaced. 4 new tires ~1000
Going with Michelin A/S 3 all season tires this time. Michelin PS4s and SuperSports are more expensive and are summer tires.
Besides, my current set of SuperSports didn't last as long as the original set of PS2s. So, I'm going for the All Season tires so I can use the Vagon all year.

Good thing I cashed in some stocks this month.

Glad I went with the A/S 3 + tires. Now that winter is here, they really do the job and hook up well on cold streets.
