Blind_Io, are you ok, man? You want to trade in a 2004 Honda Civic for a...(it's hard to say this)...Ford Ranger?????I went and saw a great '04 Ford Ranger today. 4x4, custom wheels (tasteful), mud terrains, spray-on bed liner and only 41K miles.
Then the dealer got spooked by the fact that I had my instrument cluster replaced because of a bad speedometer, so the odometer reading is off. I had the work order faxed from the Honda dealer and the car has the sticker on the door frame. He said that just because of that he could only offer me $5,000 for my pristine car! He was a younger guy and the word came down from the head of the dealer, he seemed almost as disappointed as I was.
This makes me severely pissed at Honda. My car should be worth at least $8,000, but in this area it's more like $9K or $10K. Because of a manufacturing defect, covered under warranty and fixed by Honda my car is practically un-sellable and un-tradable.
I may call Honda North America and ask them to track down the truck I need and give me fair retail on my car. Their fuck-up is going to stick me with my Honda until the fucking wheels fall off.
If I am not wrong, you should be doing it every week. Or maybe I am just obssessive.I taught my mum to use one of those digital tyre pressure machines at a service station yesterday. I wasn't aware that she had never checked or topped up tyre pressures herself before, ever. Instead she's been waiting until the shop checks the tyres pressure when they do a twelve month inspection. Okaaayy. I check my tyres every three weeks, or whenever I'm taking the car out of town.
They are also known as 250,000+ mile vehicles.Ford Ranger != Great.
It's the same damn truck from 1982.
Short answer: No, I'm not.Blind_Io, are you ok, man? You want to trade in a 2004 Honda Civic for a...(it's hard to say this)...Ford Ranger?????
First: I hate passats.what's so bad about that? AFAIK the 4motion is really neat on such a car... even if it isn't the quickest thing out there...
if it's a TDI, 800 kms won't even need one full tank, which is also handy
I'm surprised they didn't have a certified odometer/speedometer shop correct the odometer reading prior to installation. Perhaps that's illegal in California? Edit: Just checked, it's not.I am seriously pissed at Honda.
At about 34K miles, my speedo started sticking and the entire cluster was replaced. The odometer is now off, reading only 33K miles. Dealers won't touch it, offering me less than half what the car is really worth just because of the odometer issue - which was fixed under warranty by Honda at a Honda dealer with all appropriate documentation.
Even the Honda dealer that did the bloody work won't even give me wholesale for the car.
Fuck you, Honda North America. Fuck you.
So today I was skipping through the classifieds of the most recent issue of one of my favorite magazines and what suprisingly familiar sight greeted me?Anyway, not long after this I found something much more me. It was the only Hurst Oldsmobile i have ever seen in the UK.....
