You Know What, F*** Toyota!!!

Everyone remember my little problem a few weeks back dealing with my sisters and my car?

Good.

Well, guess what?

A tree fell on my sisterÂ’s car on Friday. It wasn't a big tree, but it did f*** it up a little. Yeah, little enough to require body work on %50 of the car and a complete repaint.

All $2500. Shit!

All that for a $2000 car. Hey, I wouldn't have bought it if it wasn't a steal. It WAS in great shape.

Mine, is...well... F#*$ed up also. Friday I went out and purchased a new thermostat, coolant, oil pan gasket, and serpentine belts. I was going to make a weekend project out of it.

I got the belt on easy enough, but I couldn't get the oil pan off. It must be fried on. Might as well let the dealer handle this. You know, if it isn't over a $100. Because I only paid $3 for the part.

By my math thatÂ’s $3 times three for labor = $12

Plus oil and filter = $18

for a grand total of = $32.40 (remember my math.)

Well, the guy that they took it to said $268 just for the gasket replacement.

Yes, the same guy that they got such a good deal out of the last time.

But wait, it isn't the leaky seal thatÂ’s leaking it's the rear main seal in the engine? WTF!?
Isn't that the same thing?

$768

Hold on, it's been 100k since your last tune up so letÂ’s add $454 for the tune up. :O

AND $303 for the Cv joints because we feel like it. (Those bastards were replaced F***ing 16 months ago they are not bad DAMNIT!!!)

Total cost for mine = around $1500
Shit at this rate they might as well check the rack and pinion for leaks because that is only a year old.



BASTARDS!!!

I swear my next car will be factory fresh. None of this used car bull shit.
