Definitely agree... thats why I said theres a lot it can be blamed on outside of industry. Its just convenient to do that because theres lots of money to be made doing that.

I had my car looked at last night and found out every engine/ tranny mount is bad and that us why I can feel every shift and bump the engine makes! Also that my TPS may be bad. I've got my work cut out for me for the next little while!
