    I hate the "me, me, me" generation like the entitled spoiled brat(s) in the post(s) above and worst of all, I hate hypocrites.

    Then their are the people who run a stop sign, cutting you off and making you slam on your brakes something hardcore....only to proceed to go 20 miles per hour under the speed limit on a two lane unpassable road for the next 2 miles.

    No, wait: Shakespeare said, "To err is human, to f*#k divine!" It must've been my friend Tim who said, "So much hate, so little time."

    I'm always cleaning up others abandoned carts but if someone did that to me I'd have stuffed him in my trunk and dumped him in the desert somewhere. You can't fight rude with rude. Only pain (financial, emotional or physical).

  • I hate people that drive with the "Detroit lean". Ya know what I'm talking about. The driver is leaning so far, their head is in the passenger seat. Or,how about the beat offs that have the drivers seat so far back,and reclined that they literally can't see over the speedometer.

    So, we literally had an ice storm today, and on the ride home, I still saw stupid ****’s with dogs in their laps. When are the cops going to start cracking down on this just like cellphones!?!?

    If any of you on the forum do this, you’re a ****! Stop! Pull your head out-cha **** and realize that you are a putz.

    If people cared at all about their dogs, they’d think about what happens in a front-end collision - you (and all your mass) travel forward at incredible speed and force. Your airbag deploys with even more speed and incredible force. Where’s your dog again? Oh yea - he/she is the “liquid buffer” in the middle of the driver/airbag sandwich... eeew.

    I've known people who swear their car runs better after its been washed. Is that like boutique cables? 😜

    I'm one of those believers BUT it's the way the vehicle cuts through the fluid( :) ) while rolling. Less friction!
    Cleaner engines run cooler too. ;)

    Now I've heard the sound change on my main system when I switched cables going to the speakers. I had a total of 100.00 spent on both sets of cables. So I didn't have a predetermined hopefull outcome with either. One set was brighter than the other. Fact. ;)
    Most people just listen to music and watch movies. I EXPERIENCE them.

    GM reverse lights that stay on for MINUTES after the vehicle being locked. How freaking dumb. Are they backing up or is no one in the vehicle?

    They do that so if you park in a garage, you have a couple of minutes worth of lighting so you can walk and see. FWIW

    They should put a light sensor on top of the car so they can tell if you are outside. It would not be an expensive addition, I'm sure. :)

    That is a nice idea though and I'm certain it is quite useful for some. It almost makes up for being a GM product. B);)

    My one owner GM is 26 years old last month, with 220,000 miles of towing a horse trailer all over the country. Their trucks may not be perfect, but AFAIK, absolutely everything still works, and it will still climb the Grapevine incline with a loaded trailer the same as ever. Many others much newer can’t quite manage to maintain their speed.
    Alea jacta est!

    I used to be a die-hard Ford fan. Then I got bit by the 6.0l power-stroke head gasket failure, to the tune of $6,000 and the scrapping of a family vacation. Even though it was a known design failure, and even though I still had 40,000 miles left on the power train warranty (I was 2 months over on the 5 years), Ford basically gave me the middle finger. A few moths after the head gasket repair, the ECM went out, to the tune of $2k. Sold it after that, and we’ve been a GM family since.

    Yeah... I hate class action lawsuits, and usually just bin any notices I receive, but in cases like this, a class action seems to be the only way to get large corporations to accept responsibility.

    It wouldn’t bother me at all that the initial problem occurred. Mistakes happen. What would bother me would be that by the time it happened, they knew that they were responsible for the problem, but still leave loyal customers holding the bag. Had they even offered to pay part of the repair, you might still be a customer.

    My measure of a company providing exceptional customer service is not whether things go wrong, or not. It’s how they treat their customers when they do.

    Depends on the vehicle. Some are better than others (at not blinding oncoming drivers) for some reason.
