How the **** do you get a job delivering isotopes?! I hope it pays well for the obvious potential hazards.
I want to know more about your interesting job!
I do courier work too. My Accent SE has 12,996 miles since July 16th. I don't use ECO much because accel/responsiveness is inconsistant compared to the 'always ready' non-ECO mode. And I run the car slightly aggressively so my mpg avg is 34.
I think you'll like the Accent. But,if you haul much bigger stuff,you'll want to remove the rear seats. Only takes about 40 minutes NOT knowing what you're doing & about 15-20 when you do.(I had to put 'em back in for a family passenger recently). I can carry 5 large surgical totes now,with the seats in-3.
Good luck & keep us apprised.
I mentioned the seats since the floor isn't at all flat with them folded. I also found out today toward the end of a 2 day/1100 mile delivery,with seats out it makes a nice area for a quick nap!
On the 'test pilot' front,at 14,312 miles,a problem that's been developing is quite noticable now.
At hiway speeds,when the auto trans downshifts from 6th to 5th,there is a buzz/vibration/noise at the downshift & while accelerating. Happens every time now on uphill/moderate accel situations. I first feared a trans problem,but it seems now more of a trans/engine mount or exhaust flex-pipe/hanger that is transmitting vibes/noise into the car.
Really takes away from the smooth overall feel of the drivetrain. I'll update once dealer gives their opinion.
