New to Forum, not to the yaris or cars

Got the garage organized enough to pull the car in for its first oil change at the new house. It was pretty overdue.

Looks like you have a nice piece of property there... and a great garage!

I have had a mysterious clunking for about 6-7 years on my car that I couldn't track down. I checked all the bushings several times and everything seemed secure and I never wanted to just start throwing money away at replacing random bushings.

The other day I figured it out. I had my bumper partially off to fix an alignment issue with the driver's side fender and hear something rattling around. I reached in there and pulled out a small plastic trim piece/absorber of some sort that has been rattling around in their for the majority of my ownership of the car. No more clunks.

Nice! I thought it might be this, which Trevor revived recently, coincidentally.

I was thinking that, too and was planning to check them in the next few weeks. I am definitely relieved.

Well, the yaris has 175k miles now.

Still seems to be running fine. With everything going on I have only driven it about 10 miles in the last 2.5 months. A family member gifted me a 2013 Veloster with 100k miles on it and I was thinking of selling the yaris and DDing the Veloster.

Honestly though after driving the veloster a bit I don't like it much.

The fleet is now-

"Eustis" the 2008 Yaris - 175k miles
"Old Bess" the 2005 Pontiac Vibe Base Model - 270k miles (going to be my 16 year old's car)
"Bogey" the 2016 Hyundai Tucson that we just picked up - 17 miles
2013 Hyundai Veloster 6MT - 100k miles
1985 300zx Turbo -unknow miles- pretty much stripped at this point and I'm not sure what I'm going to do with it.

"The fleet"...I say that to people that own multiple cars, too.

Does the Vibe have a 1ZZ?

It does. That is the most reliable car I've ever owned (knock on wood). If it ever blows the 1ZZ I will just put another one in it.
