      New to any forums. But i"ll give it a go.

      Bought my used Mazda because my son-in-law wanted my 350,000 plus
      Toyota Pick-up.

      It only had 44,000 so I thought that it would serve me well for my daily
      50 mile round trip commute.

      The fuel milage was disapointing. I've tried to improve on that. Up to 20 mpg.

      I had two good looking dunlops on seperate axels come apart on me at two different times. Suspect someone previously did not rotate them properly.

      I am now dealing with a roughness around 70 that comes and goes.
      When it is cold it's smooth but after warning up it's there. I had a hard time
      with Less Schwab getting the new tires smooth and aligned. They recommended a special cut to these tires for more milage.

      I thought that maybe it's wires because of the clicking on the am radio
      near electrical power lines.

      Welcome to the forum:chug:

      I can tell you one thing for sure, hearing static on an AM radio when near power lines is completely normal.
