      OP: I feel your pain a bit. Tractor trailer truck tire tread did about $6k of damage to my S6 when it was five months old (front bumper, fender, hood). Brought it to one of the best body shops in New...

      I actually find that I'm more likely to work longer hours when working from home because I know I don't have to worry about beating traffic. So I don't mind giving that hour back to the company,...

      Shomegrown already pointed out the myriad flaws in your argument, but just for fun, I decided to accept the challenge that you apparently had bouncing around in your head but failed to actually put...

      Is that a class pic of the cast from "Battle Royale"? If so, :beer:

      I'm surprised to see so many say they prefer working in the office. The only thing I miss about my last job was that the products I worked on lent themselves to being transported back and forth, so I...

      I answered the exact question posed by ssaffioti. With three-year reliability rankings, not IQS (initial quality) rankings.



      No, that was not my contention at all. My contention is that EVERY...

      The examples I posted meet the exact criteria you asked for. If you want different criteria, post it. Don't expect me to be Madame Cleo, either.

      Just wondering if you see the irony in complaining about an argument being "completely anecdotal", then proceeding to list anecdotal examples of problems. The data's all there on page two. Whatever...

      God bless America. Only here can someone look at a mountain of statistics, carefully gathered by a company whose sworn mission statement is to do so, and reply "I'm not buying it". :beer:

      No, 5-6 years is when problems tend to surface on CARS. If you want to claim that Japanese cars tend to be less expensive to maintain outside of any covered maintenance period, I already conceded...

      Not in the least. Lexus work their asses off to maintain that. I think that you assume that like many on TCL, I have an allegiance to a particular brand or even country of manufacture. Truth is, I...

      I agree that some of it is a bit over the top and padded so the dealers can make some extra $$$. However, I would suspect that they WOULD be likely to fight you if you declined the full "Schedule A"...

      You could spend $0 on maintenance if you're so inclined. What C/D does is compare apples to apples, which means going by the manufacturer's recommended services. And Acura recommends $734 worth of...

      Came to post this. I thought for sure they'd charge a premium for the TDI, so went and looked it up, but no. $860 for the first 45k, $1190 up to 75k for all scheduled service for any A6, gas or...

      Initially, I thought for sure they were different, because the damaged ones even appear slightly longer due to the deformation at the ends from contacting the wheel bearing housing. But after the...
