One of the headlights were burnt out. Old headlight were Sylvania Silverstar. I retrofitted Philips HIR2 bulbs to fit the headlights. Now I have much brighter lights. I paid $60 for two. Little pricier than the Silverstar but longer lasting.

Check engine light turned on after a fill up at the gas station. Went to dealership and was told code was P0442 indicating a fuel vapor leak. I was told it would cost $500 but I really didn't need to get it fixed. Dealership cleared light. The clips that held the liner under the car were missing, causing the liner to scratch against the road when the road was uneven. Probably lost due to getting my oil changed at different places and the guys don't put them back.

Noticed three weeks prior that A/C was intermittently not cooling. Four days ago, A/C stopped cooling totally. Blower worked, but only hot. Went to three machinics, who told me Evaporator core clogged. It would be around $1400 to fix.
