You've got just a few days to get that summer air out of those tires, and get the winter air into them.

That will solve the rattle in the glove box, and the squeak in the radiator.

The check engine light....its just to get you to look in the trunk and see if it is still there. "Check FOR Engine"...but they shorten it.

And then if you get an unexpected fall heat wave, you must rapidly put that summer air back in until the permanent winter arrives, at which point you must again change back to winter air. I thought that was common knowledge.....

As far as the steering shaft to steering gear....it's all MAGIC. Pure magic.

Actually, let me google that for you.....

That would bother me also. I know they'll say it "can't fail"....until it does. All it takes is a bad batch of doohickeys from China.

Car makers: save a few bucks somewhere else!
