$1200 for a VW is pretty goddamn reasonable.

My Scion xB clutch was about that much, and its not like it's anything more than a mouse in an exercise wheel for that engine.

Did you keep up with maintenance properly or just pencil whip the 1800?!

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.

i think that poo poo is all subsidized right now

depends on the state, but a ton of them are.

also there are plans to bring hydrogen stations to New England, which would be cool to see. I've been thinking of that since James May showed off the Honda Clarity on Top Gear.

i really want to see what ford does with the new ranger

honestly the f-150 and poo poo are way too loving big for what id want to use it for, and when i was shopping around last year for used ones they were all insanely overpriced for the condition

also im kinda mad that barely anyone makes a manual truck anymore (all i can think of is the chevy colorado, but lol at buying gm anything)

Why would you own one of those? :barf:

i was driving 100+ miles a day between work and school and it was basically the only small car that i could fit my 6'5" self into comfortably. I had a short shift 5-speed stickshift in it, i could park it everyfuckingwhere, and I could fold the backseats down flat to move poo poo.

i liked it a bunch and honestly miss it, but the only ones you can find these days are the lovely remodeled ones, and gently caress those.

My final for a class about non-profit organizations is to build a paper npo and to present it. I'm creating a fictional veteran support organization called Pets For Vets where therapy dogs are given to veterans in need. I know it already exists and I don't give a poo poo. It'll be a 7 minute powerpoint full of dog photos. Roscoe and Monty included.

The first season of Breaking Bad took a while to get going, so I'm giving this the benefit of the doubt for this season.

Either way, Bob Odenkirk owns and deserves good things and I think its rad as hell that he is doing something that is a big deal

How long did it take after your assessment appointment? I just had mine last week.

I did mine in 2009- Went in for the assessment in October, Got my rating in January 2010. Claimed both knees, backpain, tinnitus, and hearing loss. Got one knee and tinnitus, which I was happy with since I basically had no paperwork on my poo poo.

i did about 60/40 online to in-person classes. i would set Saturday afternoons to do all my work for the week, since i worked nights full-time and used that time for studying and poo poo.

theres benefits to both, but it was nice not driving 70 minutes each day to get to school
