I concur. Have a 2000 3.0 V6 standard with 148k and she burns a bit, but solid daily driver otherwise. Buy a manual, check oil level, and the radiator. Plastic endcaps on my radiator cracked a while back, cheap easy fix luckily.

I think each has it's obvious perks (as mentioned by others above). I recently moved from a global company to one with around 12 office personnel where I'm one of four engineers. I did take a slight hit with health benefits and 401k matching but I'm ... more »

You can't go wrong with either nursing or engineering salary wise. I'm a mechanical engineer myself and don't regret it a bit, although I definitely struggled through some classes. It was not easy, but when you get a great starting offer and all your ... more »

Added reply in a thread YZ 250 detonation? 7/29/2016 8:08 AM

Looks like most of that damage was from debris but if you look closely around the edge of the head it looks like there may be some pitting from detonation? Either way, 92 octane is too low for that bike. In 2011 they lowered the compression to help with ... more »

I never have other than a few practice laps. I would get the "rent" up front as well as a damage deposit. If he returns the bike in once piece, return the deposit minus the cost of wear parts.
