Default Hello from Northern Kentucky!

Hello. Iím new to these forums, but the Original Owner of a 2012 Crosstour EX-L w/nav.

Until recently, all maintenance and repair work has always been done by the dealer we bought from, on-time and as required. This has been a new experience for me, as Iíve always been a DIY kind of guy. Until the last year, itís been a really good experience.

This dealers online scheduling tool went from bad to basically unusable, and getting a service appointment scheduled is crazy. Takes upwards of 3 weeks to get in, and when I do, I feel like I need a shower when I leave, because of the sleazy feeling they generate. The next closest dealer is 30 miles away, so Iíd basically need to take a day off of work just to get the car serviced. Hard pass.

Going to start doing my own maintenance work on this one (as much as I can), and use it as a learning experience. Hope to find good technical info here, and share my experiences as I learn them.

Thanks!

I’m trying figure out where to lift the car with a floor jack at the moment. Any pointers? I know where the flat tire jack points are located, I’m just hoping for a single point in the front and a single point in the rear, so I can put jack stands under each side.

EDIT: I found a ‘Jacking’ thread in the maintenance forum. Don’t have enough posts to post a link yet.
