Passed the 10,000 mile mark today after only 78 days of ownership. I bought steelies and tire pressure monitors for my snow tires a little while back, but haven't gotten them mounted. Plenty of time to take care of that now that it's spring.
I wanted to change oil in my 2011 cruze but 1st i had to make some budget built car ramps. I used two 2x10 x 8' that i already had in the shed, i cut 4 12" pieces off and then cut 6 2x4 at 11" long and spaced it out like this, works like a charm. Took 30 minutes to build and didn't cost me a dime.
Did my 15k service today. Oil change and tire rotation. Used the spare to make it easy to flip them all around.
After that did a good multi point visual check all over and washed the car when I was done.
A friend offered up his garage and assistance, since it was pouring rain that day. Snowed off/on yesterday, enough to make a mess, and is supposed to continue "snowing" tonight. My garage looks like a storage locker, with just enough space to walk around and get out the Christmas decorations.
