I guess that saying:
F.ound O.n R.oad D.ead really holds up for you Ray. No really that stinks you buy a new car not to have problems. I usally think Toyota... Matrix to be exact OH before anyone goes there it is a "schoolbus". ps already spanked the guy at work with an SVT Focus

Josh,

Except for Ray (who would have to walk to the track) most people prefer Wednesday.

So the Winter Break Classic/ Ohio Mid Winter Championship/Pre New Years Warm-Up is on. OK?

Ted

If I ship my cars to Halo-then started walking....

A chinese man started walking from Cleveland at 5mph through a 60 mph headwind and 18 degree temperatures heading due west-and it is 100 miles-how long till he keeled over and died?

Ray:

Hi,

I feel for ya. when I bought the Envoy it spent 4 of the first 6 months in the shop. first it was faulty lower suspension mounts, then upper mounts, then CV joints were the wrong ones, then the Cam Phaser went out. finaly after 3 years of nothing but trouble. and a rash of fires.......(all because I weigh too much to drive it) it's gone...... Pat's happy with her new ride I can actuly fit in it and drive it. and it only took 9 months to find the"right" car/suv.

Reilly:

seems funny that the Matrix never had a recall and the Vibe did.... and they are pretty much the same car.

Ted:

Are they hiring where you work???? I've got this sinking feeling.......

I'll round up everybody from G.R. for the Wed race.

Thanks

Yeah from my understanding is that the Matrix got all the updated and revisied parts and the Vibe didn't My bud works
at the Toyota dealer and said even the suspension arms are different between the cars. GM at it's finest. My only gripes with the car is the GM designed inside and mostly is the rattles and what not.

James

What recall was that??

Reilly:

Hi,
The first recall was for suspension parts again and the BIG one was for engine compartment fires......... seems when you used the A/C invertor for any length of time it would get hot and POOF!!!!!!!! also the wiring harness had some trouble too. mostly going to the dash. they had to recall all of them for the suspension. .....yeah GM at it's finest rush to make a delivery date and then worry about the problems later.

Thanks
