Re: Misc Thread VI: Return of the Threadi

Man I’m glad I don’t work at a dealership. Cars come in over night and weekends (holiday ones and regular) and placed haphazardly around the lot (i assume, cuz there’s 4 days of deliveries) and then you get in to a mess! Also who names the car colors? Symphony (Hyundai) is not grey, should be brown ...

Re: You Fixed the Ops, Now Fix My Car!

What’s flat rate? In its simplest form, under a flat rate pay system, each job has a time value associated with it. The listing may say "Remove and Replace Starter Motor on 2015 Subaru 2.0 Forester ....2 hours". The technician in this case would be paid 2 hours x their hourly rate, whether they can...

Merger

https://www.msn.com/en-us/news/finance- ... SR?ocid=sf

Best I can tell from this msn article is that it would be a bad idea for Ford and GM to merge...30% of market share is a lot.

Why’s ford in trouble again?

Re: Most you ever paid for a car (used or new)

I dunno.

Definitely less than 10k.

The white spirit was my parents, drove it while learning to drive
The grey spirit was actually made of rust, bought in Ohio
The green Tercel and the white Tercel ...one was found by my uncle

The escort I got from grandpa.

Then I stopped driving.

Re: Misc Thread VI: Return of the Threadi

A CVT is the transmission that your rental was equipped with. It is short for Continuously Variable Transmission and there are no set gear ratios. Its primary advantage is that, when done correctly, the transmission allows the engine to maintain an optimal speed for a given situation (acceleration,...

Re: Misc Thread VI: Return of the Threadi

Enterprise gave me a 2018 Nissan Sentra. Had a sport option. Doesn’t go fast. 🤷‍♀️ :confused: I do have a complaint re: headlights! I do the dial for headlights and the light on the dash comes on. I ASSUMED MY HEADLIGHTS WERE ON. I was wrong. The orange lights were. There was no visual difference o...

Re: Misc Thread VI: Return of the Threadi

Sentra as rental. #meh Kill it with fire until it dies from it. I drove my friends in 2011, it was hateful then and I can't imagine it's much better now. That said, I kind of liked the orange gauges. Digital dash was interesting. Car had enough room for me and my stuff Was a free upgrade from the c...

Re: Misc Thread VI: Return of the Threadi

Oh and re: parents wanting kids. I might be 32, but my parents don’t want kids yet, they have 17 and 18 year olds at home and mom works with babies in the NICU.

I’m never giving her kids. Or pets at this point. I have plants! My lease says no pets.

Re: Misc Thread VI: Return of the Threadi

I survived Florida.

Soon I find myself driving to Southfield MI.

My brother is learning to drive and was like “wait you have a drivers license” yeah. I just found my weakness lies in driving in snow and ice so it’s easier to not have a car. Rarely snows in May....

Re: Another Day, Another Idiot Driver (Misc Thread for Stories)

I’d rather NOT ride greyhound. I’ll rent a car first. To take the greyhound to Detroit (Southfield) I had to go to Jackson and Ann Arbor first. Or I could just take I 96 the whole way there.... Megabus isn’t any better And the only train from GR to Detroit goes to Chicago first. I hate busses. Some...
