    They used to run ours until the frames where basically one big glob of weld.

    Poop Head rubber bands on the handle

    Mechanics told me they'll keep fixing them till the frame rusts though or the body mounts go. My truck is older than alot of the drivers in my center now

    I will get my car back tomorrow with a new water pump after all. The car I drove today had the brakes go out on the way back to the building. I’m keeping the shop busy this week.82826DFF-9D37-4248-B841-C083CDAB6D98.jpeg

    The recent VEM status for them was a bit of a surprise for me as well.

    Just hope they remember to put new seals in the oil cooler as well. If not, it will likely leak like the Exxon Valdez.

    If the total dollar amount involved exceeds a certain amount for repairs (currently 2k I think), yes.

    Parts only or does that include shop labor? And how does UPS figure shop labor?

    Like I said, total...
    I believe current shop rate is well over 100 an hour.

    No, it’s the hills above the city of Sonoma, in Sonoma county.
