    Well it missed being totaled by 5k so thats...a thing...was supposed to be done wensday with me picking it up friday but it got pushed back another few days to a week. Really really want it back soon. In the meantime Bones has me in one of their trucks running as a company driver. Not making enough to pay everything but its a hell of a lot better then the big fat ZERO i would be dealing with otherwise.

    Wow. Well that’s good they put you in a company truck. One of you guys loaded dry sand behind us today at Kaw Valley sand in Edwardsville. What are the chances that was you?

    Yep! That was it. Looked like before you took off you had the hood popped, maybe adding coolant?

    Im doing decent, a lot of local’ish type work which is good for me, my traveling shoes are ready to be hung up for now. Currently sitting at the shop for an annual and a dreaded alignment, this anthem has been nothing but an issue since I’ve got it from new where steering is concerned, I know I’ve read some threads about the new Volvo’s having the same issues so I figure they’re one in the same, praying they can get it figured out this go around.

    Got it in one. It was low on coolant that morning and i apparently didnt add enough during my pre trip even though i put it to the fill line. Got a low coolant idiot light on way to load so i topped it to the rim to be safe.

    Just a "you might want to check yours" warning. A bunch of our new Anthems had DEF in the coolant tank. Rotted out heater cores and who knows what else. As of now we don't know how it got in there, new from factory, or someone with a grudge? Seems like right around 80-100k problems would begin.

    Thanks for the heads up, I’ve had this since new and I’m at 227 and a change, so far it’s had it’s fair share of gremlins, the biggest of which, for me at least, has been this steering issue. They can’t seem to get it figured out, and the hood rattles so bad you’d swear it’s going to fall off at any time, I was able to remedy that situation though with a little redneck engineering :)
