A old mechanic friend texted me this made me laugh. If you have ever worked for flat rate pay you will get the humor.

if the dealer didnt charge twice what every body else does they might get more regular business

The problem is the mechanic is the one doing the work but he is getting screwed. Most mechanics only see about 20-30% of what the dealer is charging. And warranty pay is a joke. Yes dealerships charge a premium but it'* not a easy buck for the mechanic most of the time. And the flat rate system creates dishonest mechanics giving the honest guys a bad reputation.

I'm thinking about keeping an eye out for that. Should be able to get one for a reasonable price if they ever get one in at the JY. Only have one allure there currently.

I have been trying to enjoy winter as much as possible. I got the dog out for a walk the other day.
