Davey Boy lost his SVT

So we got rid of my SVT. There was a small tear on the drivers side axle boot, which caused my bearings and joints to go bad. I didn't know about it till the damage was already done we traded it in and my dad swooped up a metallic grey 2012 SE hatch! Sadly, its an automatic and is the lower trim level since its his daily driver to and from work. I'll try to steal it for a meet up sometime soon though , it looks sexy as hell! I'm gonna throw some pictures up after class tonight or this weekend.

Since we got rid of my SVT, I inherited his 03 SE sedan which is a lot slower but hey, at least I still have a car!

Sorry to hear about that, usually a bad axle boot at the least needs a $16 boot kit or a $100 axle swap, pretty minor repair. Even a whole hub is pretty reasonable in price.

Yeah, I just wish I woulda known about the boot earlier. I never have the opportunity to get up under it easily and my mechanic never thought it would be worth while to mention...
The new one is really nice, way too many buttons on the dash though.
