Dan, I KNOW you can fix it!!! I had been looking at some of those cash for clunker cars ran without oil till they seize. Incredible that it lasted 3 1/2 minutes.

i agree on that one all the cfc'* motors are shot cause they don't want them around cause they get less than 18mpg well what about the other 30 million people that still have cars and trucks like that and can't afford a new vehicle but may soon need a motor? total waste

even if they gave the cars to the poor so they could get out and find a job and get off the public assistant. and not have to rely on public transportation. but that would be a smart idea. leave it to the president. these must be the new change he promised. kill all the good cars out there so we all have to drive hybrids ( maybe pontiac needs to make a bonneville hybrid i might by that)
