New Glasses For 04 Mustang

The latest and earliest addition to the 04 Mustang GT Convertible Project Car is a new set of headlights. Tired and weather beaten, the fastest and easiest face lift was with new head lights. Price wise, it’s a great starting point to start customizing the Mustang. I chose Andy’s Auto Sports as my source for the new Mustang’s glasses.

Where to buy?

Andy’s Auto Sports has a phenomenal inventory and selection of automotive parts. Simply put, it’s staggering at all the vehicles they cover and are capable of providing components for. Thankfully, their website is easy to navigate and all the auto parts are organized under the year, model, and part category you are looking to purchase. My only complaint is that once I decided on headlights, I then had to choose from a number of manufacturers before seeing the product. I’m not familiar with some of the import part makers, so it would have been nice to see all the company’s products listed together at that point in a gallery format. However, available telephone support, fast and easy to navigate website, along with freight speeds make this a 5 Star buying experience.

Toyota Recall Corolla and Matrix

Personally I’m starting to hate how recall’s are just an expected part of purchasing a new car.  It would seem no matter what manufacturer, you will have at least a few recalls.  Even after manufacturers spend millions of dollars on testing, research, and engineering they can still screw up and need to spend even more to fix a problem that should have been found. duh!?  I’m curious what portion of recalls effects a car manufacturers red line?

Toyota is the latest to issue a recall, which effects their Corolla and Matrix model lines.  Reportedly the bolts holding the power windows can cause the glass to actually shatter.  While this is minor in terms of some of the recalls out there, minor accidents have already been reported.

The recall is part of Toyota’s safety recall with the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) involving approximately 539,500 cars. The manufacturing defect is noticed on 2003 and 2004 model Corolla and Matrix cars.
