I researched a bunch, seems that ripping the clutch out is actually pretty straightforward, I don't have to pull the engine. Looking at the steps involved though, I don't blame the shop for trying to charge a $1200 go the gently caress away tax.

I got to order some new tools though!

Wife unfortunately loves the poo poo out of volkswagens.

I'm just gonna sit in the corner here with my 1977 international that only requires harsh language and a firm pimp hand to keep on the road.

That's not the jeep, that's the vette and it's because I swapped for an aftermarket transmission that's bigger than the old one. With the Muncie 4-speed I could drop the transmission to get to the clutch. That said, this car holds to the Blood Sacrifice Rule like none I've ever owned.

yep. oil changes, scheduled maintenance, I was all over that poo poo.

tranny failed, 2 window motors failed, a/c compressor blew up, the 4-wheel drive transfer case linkage failed, i could keep going.

my wife bought it from the official dealership that her cousin worked at, and paid for the warranty and everything (before we dated). I would bring it in for something or other, and strangely enough nothing was covered. One day I said gently caress it,, had my wife call in and tell them to give me all the paperwork for the work done on the car. They said ok to her on the phone, then refused to give it to me when I got there. Called my lawyer on the way out. 45 minutes later the dealer manager called me up yelling at me for making it a legal matter, I told him to eat my poo poo and give me the paperwork.

turns out my wife was paying for a warranty that was never valid. They never told her this, and just told her instead that the warranty didn't cover it.

they gave back the money paid for the warranty. my wife didn't want to make a big deal out of it since her cousin worked there, but they don't talk anymore now.

Now she drives a Ford Fiesta that runs awesomely (except for the bullshit Ford Sync crap that drives me up a goddamn wall). I traded in the xB last year for a used Grand Marquis. It's nice, but there's a lot of times I miss the Scion.

my jeep was a steaming pile of poo poo that did nothing but cost ridic money

only 1 thing broke while in warranty, the radiator at ~3,000 miles

it was a 2006 and i sold it at 58k miles and got 11.5k for it, whomever got it after that was going to have to replace the transmission and most likely other things soon after


loving thing costed me about 6-8k in repairs

Uncle had an early 90s jeep cherokee with the straight six, that thing would never die. His wife once exploded a radiator hose and drove it until it seized. Some more water, a spritz of antifreeze, good for another billion miles.

I'm starting to notice a trend with gender and vehicle problems.

The trip before that point was pretty cool though:

The 3-pax Silverado that was my hooptie at KAF was so beat to poo poo it wasn't even funny. I don't think anyone had ever touched the 1800 (or any other part) of that thing.

the guy I bought it from said he had spilled a 2 litre jack daniels container and it smelled like an alcohol factory. It was like a grand and I am a cheap jew. I never had to put the thing through any maintenance other than oil changes. It ran like a champ and smelled like alcohol and cigarettes. And to boot it was destroyed by a mustang, which was also demolished in the crash. A 2014 mustang got murdered by my dodge intrepid :smug:

/\ that's kinda impressive.

Anything chrysler during the cerberus years is a giant poo poo pile. The 4.0L straight 6 got axed in 2005, meaning there hasn't been a wrangler worth owning in at least a decade. Fiat has apparently made good changes, but their still poo poo cars in my mind.

I have nothing but loathing hatred for GM after their 90s shitbox festival and then bailout money. At least Ford kept their poo poo together.

It was a brand new rav 4 that some dude had just bought that his wife was driving that totaled my 04 mountaineer two and a half weeks ago.

Got more than I put into it for the property damage. My insurance still owes me my deductible back once they collect from her insurance. Cheap fucks wanted to offer me $2500 less than USAA was going to give me.

Now I'm stuck with nothing but a 38 year old car that hasn't really been driven in a year or my motorcycle. Just sucks that I don't have anything that I can really move anything around in.

This is so petty. Black people just had a whole month to celebrate their heritage and they are complaining because a white man wants to celebrate his? Grow up! There isn't anything racist about it. If someone thinks it is racist, it's because that's the way they think. In my opinion, the word "racist" is getting used way too often.

As far as honolulu bars, it depends on your scene. Do you want a club or do you want a smoky bar? You're going to see military people everywhere anywhere you go. You're more likely to get into a fight with them than most locals unless you're being an exceptional jackass.
