No one seems to have considered factors like availability of dealer
shops and spare parts if manufacturers (and their suppliers) have
I have older vehicles and dealers DON'T have the parts I need most of the
time. When they do have the part, they want 5 times the price I can get it
elsewhere. So no loss to me. (For example they wanted $65 for that little
plastic nozzle on the hood from which window washer fluid sprays out. I
found one at an auto parts store for $9.)
same for me on the older vehicles. my newest is a 1986 Toyota 4-Runner.
when I needed a replacement for the plastic nozzle on the hood from which
window washer fluid sprays out I went to the junk yard or as some say the
recycled parts center. took me damn near an hour to get that part off the
hood I found it on without breaking the plastic keepers. when I went back
up to the shop to pay the man he laughed and said "I looked out the window
two or three times and you done paid for that part, it's yours."
dealers are for yankees, city people and women. those of us who can do
for ourselves know to stay far away from auto dealers.
as for my opinion, I'd enjoy watching the big three flame on,
burn and cinder. real people will survive while watching the
yang, city people panic.
