I ordered some parts from RockAuto...Two of the parts were sourced in Maspeth, New York, the other in Phoenix, Arizona. Both shipments went through Memphis...
Why Memphis, seems very indirect?
Why Memphis? The answer is interesting.

There are couple of possible answers.

  1. They are actually shipping from a warehouse in Memphis. Most autopart stores use dropship services from big parts wholesalers. Main one being Keystone. Keystone ships internationally from Memphis. I haven't seen one auto parts chain who doesn't buy from Keystone or LKQ.
  2. Shipper often give discounts if shipped out of certain cities.

Instructor guarantee a pilot license before you pay a dime for classes.

My youngest son got his driver's license when he was 14. Got his first car at 10.
Horrible 😡

I ordered some parts from RockAuto last Thursday evening, the 6th. They arrived early afternoon today, the 11th. Two of the parts were sourced in Maspeth, New York, the other in Phoenix, Arizona. Both shipments went through Memphis, then to Mirabel (Quebec), then to Dartmouth, Nova Scotia, then to me. FedEx all the way. They arrived together, in two separate packages.

Why Memphis, seems very indirect?

The parts arrived with taxes and customs already paid, the courier guy just handed me the packages, turned around and was on his way. Everything was in good shape. Very simple and expedient plus saved a few $ compared to buying locally.

Why Memphis? The answer is interesting.

Dodge Grand Caravan Reliability Rating

Imports rule here, so why is Dodge Grand Caravan among South Florida's longest-owned vehicles?

Toyota recalls 8,214 vehicles in Canada for coolant leak risk

Replacing the entire engine. WOW!

In the United States, around 44,000 vehicles may be affected; in Canada that number is 8,214 cars and trucks.

The issue stems from an improperly manufactured engine block, which can leak coolant during normal engine operation. “This can lead to engine noise, engine smoke, warning lights/malfunction indicator illumination, an audible chime sounding, and/or, in some cases, engine overheating and possible internal mechanical engine damage,” said Toyota in a statement.
Since when have we seen something this bad with an engine? Those darnn robots. :)

It is clearly much cheaper :)
Not only cheaper but likely the engines can't be fixed regardless, i.e. garbage. Toyota making garbage, what's next?

The redesign is uglier... couldn't they ask the public opinion before starting the redesign work? :unsure:

Guess they didn't ask you. :)

Front sort of looks like the front of a 2016 T&C. Van looks better in white.

Yes, but you didn't look at it in white, or a lighter color.
.

This explains the vehicle. I notice the front grill has a Ford look about it. The Voyager will retain the old look in front, apparently.

Shrove Tuesday is coming up, but not tomorrow. Put some Aunt Jemima on your shopping list OR find out where they have the "all you can eat pancakes" deal. :)

Daytona 500 was postponed until today. Trump doesn't control the weather .... yet. :)

Trudeau cancels trip to Caribbean after facing criticism over Liberals response to pipeline protests

About time. Those protests, by blocking rail traffic, are illegal. Impacts my supply of propane too. Could get cold around here. :(

Is it effect or affect?
Most of the time, you'll want affect as a verb meaning to influence something and effect for the something that was influenced. The difference between affect and effect is so slippery that people have started using "impact" as a verb instead
