    When I bought a car out of state I wanted to use an escrow service but heard bad reviews. So instead I mailed out a bank check. Not to smart in hindsight but it worked out lol.

    It was with Nissans shit CVTs. We won both cases because neither owner had history or proof of changing the fluid.

    Yeah, manufacturer as in dealership. If your sending the part to the manufacturer that means you’ve already replaced it at no cost at which is pointless because the customer got the free part. And I was involved in 2 lawsuits regarding transmissions that customers thought should have been...

    Most people who choose not to use a dealer decide to do the work themselves, like you. And most people who do work themselves typically do not document the work they do meaning keeping receipts. The problem with doing your own work or going to a independent shop is people are not up to date on...

    Depends on what the issue is. But, as long as you can provide proof you’ve had service done outside of a dealership then warranty is usually still good. If you came to my dealer with a blown engine at 30k miles and demanded a new engine but couldn’t provide proof youve had oil changes because...

    Meal Prep Services - Who is the Best?

    My family did freshly for awhile. Taste good at first but as time went on we got sick of eating it. I’m looking for an alternative as I hate cooking with a burning passion.

    Most dealers keep old parts for 24 hours after a repair just in case a customer wants to see or take old parts. I doubt the tech took it to keep. It’s just an air filter. Not worth keeping.

    giving times out for service was always a major struggle at the dealer I worked at. We(the advisors) would tell BDC and the receptionist how long services take then managers would catch wind of it then tell BDC and receptionist to shorten the times. Any time I told a customer how much time it...

    I love the sound. But, I find it very off putting that it’s coming out of that car. American v8 shouldn’t sound like a Ferrari.

    What is the modern definition of making “Big Money”?

    Had an in ground pool growing up at my parents house. It was awesome for me and my brother as kids. We were the “cool house” because of it. Then we became teenagers and got drivers licenses and never touched the pool. Parents eventually filled it in because it was a money pit.

    Mortgage Rates north of 7%

    COVID is the sole reason prices are what they are. If the Rona didn’t happen then real estate or anything for that matter would not have jumped 20%

    Yeah. Not a big fan of the fake stuff. The flamethrower coming from the Audi exhaust was a major turn off for me
