Oh no I'm not saying I thought Gretzky was cheating. I was just mentioning it since you mentioned his name as an aside.

I agree for the most part but any driver, both good and bad, would be screwed in crummy conditions with the ABS system I have. Like the OP was stating I have slid through intersections as well which...

A major theme to this thread is tire pressure. I know even my '03 when I take it for oil changes etc. and they adjust tire pressure they always seem to crank it up to 35+PSI. I don't bother telling...

Check your tire pressure. On my door it states 29 PSI, however, when I get oil changes done they always put 35 PSI and I find it a little rough.

It does doesn't it.

Changed mine last year and yes it fixed it 100%. I was doubtful as I had driven quite a bit with slipping gears and clunking but things are still fine and dandy.

Your 2003 can also :thumbs_up:

Showed a few friends that trick and they are impressed.

I just realized I can recline the back seats on my 2003 last year.

I have one of my windshield washer jets aimed up so if someone is tailgating me they get a free car wash. I will flash my brake lights etc first before hosing them down.

I just did mine a month ago...
First one popped off with no effort.
Second one required tapping all around with rubber mallet for a minute.

I like this. It is a pita to remove snow with the rack on. I might do this permanently as I have not used the roof rack since ditching my cargo box and could probably get a minor increase in MPG.
