Just letting you know I just got my 97 Bonnie back from the repair shop. I haven't given her the "wash & wax" inspection, that might have to wait til things get above 0c here. (It'* currently -31c w/ the wind chill, -14c w/o wind chill). Brrr..
A few things I have to rant about though... since the dealership isn't open until 7:00am tomorrow. When I bought it in, they were to repair the bumper, the styrofoam, the shock absorbers, the trunk (so it will pop), and fix the leak in the tank.
1-My exhaust tips.... my left one looks like it'* out further then my right. Any reason why a repair to my bumper would cause this? I looked at photos I took just last week, and the tips seemed to be fairly aligned.
2-They didn't fix the trunk poping issue... they said there was nothing wrong w/ it. But it still doesn't pop..... argg....
3-My antenna is missing the bottom piece... the ring that goes around the bottom. Any reason why they would have to remove that?
4-They never did find a leak in the trunk. They said they had it in "the rain machine", but they didn't see any water in the trunk. I had the mats removed before I bought her in because they were soaked after I went through the car wash.
I'm really dissappointed by their work.... the only 'good' thing is now the bumper is warrantied for life. I guess I'll have to bring her back in sometime soon. I'll be phoning them 1st thing in the morning.
Anyways... sorry just had to rant.
BTW.... sidenote... had an 2004 Intrepid while my Bonnie was in the shop. 2.7L engine. Didn't really like it, had no power going uphill. Wasn't bad on flat roads. I had it going upto 170kph, it could have gone faster. High shift points under WOT, 6500RPM. Sounded like a rice engine.
