I'm so glad that there isn't any asian buffets near me, because if there were, I'd be eating asian food on a daily basis.

Hey guys, did you know that 6 extra hp on a 3.0 makes it soooo much better than a stock 3.0?

lol, when my mom and I were at the dealer looking at my Ranger, the salesman had a heart attack when I was pulling the dipsticks and checking the coolant. He asked my mom if I knew what I was doing, and she told him to relax, I'm more mechanically inclined than I should be.

To freak him out even more, I crawled under the truck to look for fluid leaks. Made a bunch of hmmm sounds, and said a few yeps. Got out and told him the tires sucked, the oil filter was a piece of shit, the alignment was off, the vacuum hoses were iffy, and that battery was a rebuilt piece of garbage. Told him I sure as hell wasn't gonna pay $10k for it, and that if he didn't drop to $8K, I would walk.

Luckily he was a nice guy and let me go for $8200 after TTT.

Apparently the K&N CAI kit adds 6hp to a 3.0, but only when the engine rpms are at 4500.

my dad's expedition had a "horn" malfunction. - horn was going off like crazy. dad took it to the dealer. the fuse melted and also melted the wiring harness that controls the horn and rear "warning chime" and also the plug ins for his cell phone.
dealer told him on tuesday "It's all fixed, $250.
Da went to pick it up, turned the key and HORNS BLARING!! the mechanic said "Well, it wasn't doing that when I drove it" - in an attutude that suggested my dad somehow caused the problem. My dad told the manager "you will find the cause of the problem, you will have it fixed. I already paid $250. I will not pay any more because your mechanic said it was fixed."
to which he said "No problem, Mr. Lia, we are very sorry. there will be no more additional charges"
