Oh, and all of you with GM AWD cars from the early oughts remember: Your rear diff fluid needs to be changed every 50k miles. It take 2 quarts. GM sells the diff fluid at their dealers for $50 per quart. OEHQ.com sells it for half of that, but that is still felony robbery for a quart of fluid that won't get you drunk.

Hmm. Maybe that explains why BMW buys their X3 transmissions from GM.
