RT43 I've heard nothing but good things about.

And I love that gauge package in the 2010-12 models. So beautiful.

For the price they were hard to beat, and rated pretty highly in that size on Tire Rack.

The only thing I donít like about the cluster design is the chrome trim around the gauges - it tends to reflect sun back into the driverís eyes.

Congratulations for the vehicle

Which trans service would be needed?
I need to finish reading the owners manual and also to check what are the main items to be reviewed

The prior owner had hooligans in the back, so on top of the seats and headliner being filthy when I looked at it (Dealership got it 90% clean, there's still spots I have to touch up) the rear air vent louver controls were broken, so I finally ordered a replacement for $25 on eBay.




Finding Light Stone interior parts for this thing is harder than you'd expect - it seems most of the cars were ordered with the black interiors. I want to replace that armrest, where the pleather's cracking at the elbow resting spot, but I've struggled to find a decent one and may end up breaking down and buying a new one. (they're like $140)

I do have some mods in the planning stages, and I've had my first mechanical issue pop up - the driver door actuator/latch assembly is starting to go out. Works every time with the key, so I'm not rushing to change it, but it's on the list.

Got the full set (including the rear) for $50 shipped, new old stock, so I'm happy.
