    Hey everybody. I just picked up a 2002 TB yesterday and knew I would find an owner site. I love it and feel I got a good deal on it. It has 55K on it and came with a set of 20 inch wheels and tires. It is in very good shape. I wasn't planning on buying anything due to just having made my last child support payment 8 days before. I saw it in an ad at a dealership that was just down the road. I went to look at it and was surprised at how nice it was. Needless to say I fell in love and got it. Since it had beensitting on the lot for three weeks I was able to knock down the price by 2K. The only problems with it are the heater fan doesn't blow on the 1,2 or 3 position (they have to fix) and the previous owner cut off the rear muffler and put on a chrome tip. It's a little loud inside so I'll have that fixed. Other than that it looks and smells new. Are there any problems I should know about? I have rea the service bulletins about the wiper motor and tail light circut boards. Also, what upgrades as far as body kits and or grills are there out there?

    More than likely the indash switch is faulty or the module for blower motor is pooched.

    Default Check the speedo

    20 inchers! Sweet! You may want to verify that the speedometer is accurate with those wheels. It's good info to know before you zip through the local speed trap. If the speedometer needs calibration, you can diy with a PCM programmer from Hypertech or JET. With a programmer you could bump the HP too.
