Default Duralast...NOT built to last apparently.

Heyyy...everytime I see this picture I laugh. This was the 3rd thermostat I changed in the money pit (cavalier) i used to drive. This one was in there for about 4 days before I started noticing funkyness with the temp gauge, it wouldn't warm up and stay warm...kinda like if it was stuck open, right? So I tear it apart and find this:

Oi......Classic Durashit/Duracrap/DuraNOTlast. I go to Advance, Federated, or Napa for my parts. Mostly Napa. A Autozone part would NEVER touch my car.

Wanna know what'* even worse? Their value line; ValueCRAP.
