I didn't know that they still made Ref/Fre's that had to be manually defrosted.
Only brand new car I ever bought had 8 miles on it. But it also had a dead battery when I went to look at it.I am a good son.
Mom was looking for a new car and I found one online not far away.
She was all paranoid that might get sold so she wanted to go there right away.
The sales guy tried to give here the wrong car to test drive. The first car they gave her had 116 miles on it. The car that she went there to buy had only 24 miles on it.
IMO the first one they gave her was a Demo car with 116 miles on it.
The second one and the one she wanted to buy only had 24 miles on it and that is like a trip around the assembly plant's test track and a couple times on and of the truck maybe, a few test drives.
Maybe @Hammer166 can confirm on what kind of mileage new cars are delivered to dealers with
(yes I converted the KMs to actual Miles so you simpletons wouldn't have do it for your self and also to avoid all your lame assed metric jokes that are piteous at best.)
When you get "Older" you'll often be "Happy" to part with your cash and just let somebody else do it while snoozing on the couch instead of stretched out on the driveway under you car ...then you can't find a socket or a special screwdriver bit for a weird one gotta got running to the hardware store buy that.I feel bad for people who can't DIY for whatever reason. A grand for brakes is nuts.
Maybe I should start doing that stuff for a living.
Brakes are so easy it's silly to spend a grand having someone else do it when you're capable.When you get "Older" you'll often be "Happy" to part with your cash and just let somebody else do it while snoozing on the couch instead of stretched out on the driveway under you car ...then you can't find a socket or a special screwdriver bit for a weird one gotta got running to the hardware store buy that.
And the classic Oops Told the guy at Napa wrong model or was off by a year or two now I gotta go back with the receipt and get the right Stuff..
Yeah when I was younger and "broke" had often no choice but to change my own oil and do my own brakes..
Today I "outsource" that kinda stuff and enjoy my spare time.
I am very appreciative for the gift the plant gave me I am always grateful for any gift I am given.
You hurt yourself driving a truck, lol.Maybe I should start doing that stuff for a living.
Who $pends a Grand for a Brake Job..Brakes are so easy it's silly to spend a grand having someone else do it when you're capable.
My step grandfather tore down motors at the age of 78 in his little shed.
I hurt myself on a defective landing gear because I was too stubborn to say f this. Brakes on a passenger vehicle are nothing.You hurt yourself driving a truck, lol.
Turning wrenches 8-10 hours a day wears a person down.
People like me can do it, but did it long enough that we simply don’t want to anymore. Much better to drop my truck off somewhere, go have fun spending my money for a couple days, then go back to work.
Making a living, then spending your off time working in on what makes your living, only to take a shower and go back out making a living again is both physically and mentally unhealthy.
