I hate having to trust anybody to do anything right on a vehicle I own. The trick with cars or trucks is to keep it clean and don't turn any screw or bolt the factory put in place that you don't need to. And then don't drive it like an idiot.

We bought a used Honda Civic for my wife. It was the prefect car for her, never any problems. After four years, around Christmas, I told her the expected gifts won't be much this year because the Civic needs tires.

She looks at me with wide open eyes, then says, in a pissed off kind of way: "I thought it already had tires when we bought it four years ago."
