    My wife says she saw the above message light. It's not mentioned in the Owner's Manual nor any search I've done. Ever seen it? If so, what's the deal?

    "Service rear axle" error message

    Just read over on the Cadillac SRX site this message can be triggered by a battery problem. Since I just saw it on ours last week, I'm going to clean the battery terminals and put the charger on it....

    If I were a traveling salesman and on the road for hours most days, I'd consider paying it, but around town here, never gonna happen.

    When did Sirius XM finally cut yours off?

    I'd been hesitant to mention it, because it was nice getting XM radio for free, but today it finally went dark.

    When did or has it yet gone off?

    The wife's gently driven 9-4X won't get anything like 32K out of the OEM Michelins. Since I run snow tires on all our rigs from November-March, so can't give an actual mileage, but it's much faster...

    Still haven't gotten inside the lift gate. I was able to replace the stick-on tabs without removing the spinning insert. Someone must have had to get in there. Maybe he'll be along someday.

    Our weather has warmed up here and the left LED is working again. Definitely a connection or switching problem and definitely temperature related.

    That still wouldn't explain why the LEDs come on at start-up and immediately go off. The LEDs are still functioning. Just something in the switching isn't.

    How to get inside rear lift gate?

    One of the license plate screw inserts in the rear lift gate has gone TU. It just spins and thus the screw can't be removed.

    This is a new novel by a Swedish author, Fredrik Backman. Saabs and the love of them are central to the story and besides that, it's a great read.

    Either windshield fits all models.

    My guess is there were very few base models made and sold, so there hasn't been much demand for those windshields. Most of the cars are Premium/Aero, so that's...
