    Not been a good year for me and cars. My next car is going to be a M1 Abrams.

    I expect this one will come back totaled too. bumper, grille, headlight assembly, left outer fender, left inner fender, radiator, condenser At least that's what I see. They will probably find more.

    2020, the year the dog needs to drag out back and bury because it stinks so bad!

    Damn son, next time you go anywhere...call Uber.

    I had a year that at least once/month I had a flat tire. That was a long time ago when they still put inner tubes in them :rotfl:

    They'll probably write it off.

    I bet that BTR I suggested is sounding better and better...

    That’s not too bad for hitting a deer. I hit a chicken hawk once and did $4000 damage to a Dodge 2500.

    If I was a vehicle I wouldn't want to be bought by you.

    Funny thing. The police reported it as "struck by deer".

  17. I'm sorry Greg. The year 2020 seems to be an even worse dumpster fire for you then most people.

    My clutch failed this year in a car at about 60,200 miles. But it was only about an $1,100 fix with towing charges included.

    I just have to ask.

    WTH are you calling chicken hawks? What passes for chicken hawks around here aren’t big enough to do that kind of damage.

    In the Buicks I have full size spares, and the space savers. I keep a hydraulic jack in both cars.

    When I bought my Forte, I was alarmed that it did not have a spare. Same as when I bought the Optima for SWMBO. the Honda Odyssey (2013) has a spare. My mons Honda Accord does not have a spare. just a compressor and a couple an of slime, just like my KIA's. Sometime between 2013 and 2020 they quit putting in Spares.
