Despite having well over 200k the 3.5L V6 runs strong so it got a new water pump today. That is a biatch to do. Water pump bearings were gone, surprised it had any coolant in it based on noise and bearing state after it was out. This is the 2nd major repair after the AC condenser let go 100k ago. Otherwise just normal stuff (oil, shocks/struts, plugs/coils once, fluids).

I’m glad the old girl has some life in her, I don’t want to go car shopping and it has no rust from being constantly garaged and not driven every day for the last couple years.
