Here’s Why Car Dealerships are Scumbags

Here’s Why Car Dealerships are Scumbags


rev up your engines wind 5280 says Scottie I bought a new car from dealer I purchased it gives a lifetime powertrain warranty
these warranties lifetime powertrain warranty you know what does that really
mean theoretically it means that if the
engine of the transmission goes out they’re gonna fix it free but from my
experience they’re usually not worth the paper that they’re printed on if it was
even printed anymore because they have so many disclaimers they’ll say stuff
like if your engine goes out where you didn’t change your oil enough oh you
overheated the engine and that’s why the engine broke they got so many outs that
they can go that they’re not going to fix it or they’ll say stuff like well
that’s normal wear so let’s say the transmission shifting really poorly
they’ll just say well that’s normal wear as they get old they shift poorly
we’re not gonna you know rebuild your transmission or give you a $5,000
transmission under the warranty most of that stuff isn’t worth the paper that
it’s printed on and when you get something like limited powertrain
warranty you have no idea what they’re actually cover and in my experience I
think customers that have those and 80% of the time they bring it to me and I
look at it I caught the company and they say oh no we’re not gonna cover that so
don’t really listen to that especially in a used vehicle you know things are
gonna break it there’s no way they’re gonna fix all that stuff for free most
of it it’s just total lies from the people that are selling you the stuff
where it says Scotty which one has more plastic the Kardashians or BMWs billion
any I guess there would be a Kardashian who’s driving a BMW that would
definitely have the most plastic but BMWs have been using plastic for decades
now I got a customer’s still got a 1980s BMW and that thing doesn’t have much
plastic on it at all modern ones and it’s cheap plastic and it
doesn’t hold up over time the heat from like a the cooling system and everything
in this plastic and the intake manifold with all these plastic parts on it that
crack and break that’s the big reason I tell people don’t buy a BMW I had a
mechanic friend once I saw him at a parts store so I was going he says oh
man look I just got this beautiful BMW one of my customers was tired of it so I
bought it from him and I’m thinking ah he does know much about BMWs I saw him about a year later to say I’m on a part store I said how’s that BMW going
Joe and he said Oh Scotty that BMW I got rid of it a month ago was just
killing me with parts for all that plastic stuff and this was a mechanic so
stay away from both the Kardashians and BMWs if you don’t want to deal with plastic, 2jg says Scotty what do you think about Ford Expedition oh wait
80,000 kilometers for 6k people say they break down when they get old like
200,000 yeah it’s for expeditions ages they’re high-tech luxury SUVs big
monstrosity and they do have to have electronic work done on them generally
as they age you only got 80,000 kilometers that’s
like what Hannah 44,000 miles that’s nothing $6,000 imagine what somebody
paid for it when it was new outrageous it’s awful mechanic checks it
out and says yes that’s the real knowledge yes it’s in decent shape
buy it if you want a big monstrosity that you know uses a lot of
gas it could be okay because generally yeah like you say if you’re talking
about 200,000 kilometers yeah that’s generally when they start to have
problems we say when they get more than a hundred thousand my husband or than
that but still yeah then they would start but for the mileage that it has
you know you can go another 120 thousand kilometers not put much in it go right
and buy it rim says I got a friend with a 2014 Accord to push button lights
up in the dash but it won’t turn over and the battery just fine I can just about
guarantee you it needs a starter on those 2014 of course they put the
crappiest smallest little starters on those things and if it’s a four-cylinder
one which I’m assuming it is cuz most of them around me are you gotta take off
part of the intake manifold to get the starter have another brilliant design
but they just built those starters poorly I changed out scores of them in
those things and odds are it just needs a starter it was a bad design a poorly
made start or so go get one and my advice if you can find a new one put a
new one in because otherwise if you go to a discount auto parts stores you get
one of their crappy starters that Honda made that has been rebuilt
well a rebuilt one they’re gonna last less than the brand new one did so if
you can find a brand new one it’s generally going to
last longer than a rebuilt on that particular Honda because they’re
notorious for breaking down in the first place
timber won’t fall 29th says Scotty I’ve been noticing the prices of the Ford Crown Vic police interceptors been going up lately what’s up here
all right well they’re not gonna be making them anymore so people that like
those vehicles the big old crown vics hey they want them they know they’re not
gonna be making him anymore and so the prices are going up money used once
and there’s always a certain amount of people that like a certain vehicle a
couple years ago Porsche decided they were gonna make a thousand super cars
and they were going for nine hundred something thousand dollars almost a
million bucks right and all the other supercar people who make 50 a year 120 a year they said ah poor she’s gonna lose their shirt on that one how they gonna
find a thousand people they’re gonna buy these super car Porsches right well they
sold them all before they even had one completely built because there are that
many million and billionaires have wanted to buy this poor super car so
there’s a certain amount of people that want a Crown Vic like that so the prices
is gonna start going off since they’re not producing anymore it’s the old law
of supply and demand sue asks hey if I’m using full synthetic engine I should
have continued to do so for ever yes you want to stick with a particular type of
oil it works for you keep using it now they are supposed to have certain
additives they have minimum requirements here in the United States but they’re
all slightly different so let’s say I like Castro so using Castro synthetic
oil I would continue to use it as long as you have the car why mess with
success why change from one or another but I mean let’s say you go to
Walmart and buy their synthetic oil all the time and it works fine just keep
buying it you don’t want to switch and the worst thing to do is to switch from
synthetic to non synthetic or for non synthetic to synthetic go back and forth
because really if something works in your engine you should leave it alone
and of course especially say got an older car an excuse normal oil do not
switch a high mileage old car from normal to synthetic because I have seen
just because it flows better I’ve seen leaks I’ve ever seen noises occurred
because of the difference you know so stick to one type of oil and leave it
there if it works perfectly fine there’s no reason to change
13:45 says I got an 06 Jeep Liberty sometimes it starts
fine after a driver for a fuel won’t start I don’t after you starting fluid
to started what could be wrong mainly that would be your fuel pump is
starting to go out or you got a bad fuel pump real those things are notorious for
having fuel pump really failures so I’d say change the fuel pump relay first
that’s where it starts but if it’s not that when it doesn’t start pressure test
a fuel pump normally vehicles are the other way
around they’re hard to start when they’re cold but when they’re warm they
start right up or if they start up firing when they’re called and then
they’re warm they don’t start normally it’s they’re flooding out from fuel
leaking but yours isn’t flooding out because adding starting fluid would
flood out even more it’s not getting any fuel check the relay first just change
that they’re cheap you can do that your stuff easy and if it’s not that then
have the fuel pump pressure tested and pray it’s the fuel pump going out and
not the computer that activates or the crazy wiring and those jeeps that are
notorious for having electronic gremlins biomechanoid says I’d like to be a bit
independent to want to rely on mechanics for trivial jobs and mechanics around
here aren’t very good I don’t have my own oil and coolant changes but I don’t
have a garage and I parked outside on the street I can’t Jack them up so I’m
looking for alternatives can you use pumps to suck the oil up but your engine
off you can’t i personally believe in jacking them up and unscrewing the drain
plug and getting it all up but take an example audis they got a whole bunch of
sheet metal on the bottom of the car to make them hear dynamic and it would take an hour to get all that crap off to change the oil even at the Audi dealers
they tell you the factory thing is to suck the oil out you go to an already
dealer to get an oil change they just take the dipstick out and they stick a
tube in and they suck the oil out and change it that way you know if you want
to do it that way you know you’re still gonna get more crud changing the plug
but if you can’t get that and you get a good one to suck it out do it but the
first time you do it do this read what your oil change specs are and let’s say
it says 5.3 quarts when you suck it out pour that into graduated containers and
see if it’s the same amount that comes out then you’ll know well you got almost
all of it out so who cares but if it says 5.3 quarts and you only get four
it’s not working right and then Jack it up to change the oil but if it does you
can do it like I say they already deal is that’s what they do now at the
dealers they don’t have to take the whole bottom of the car off just kind of amazes me that’s Germans for you they’re a little weird when it
comes to design and things, be gentle says Scotty is the CVT in a
2020 Toyota Corolla reliable 2020 I’m assuming it is because my son
bought one last year it’s two years old now and it’s been alt reliable he was
kind of leery because I told about CVT transmissions but he found a nice
Corolla asked with the CVT and he lost and he drives hard
he loves the acceleration and he said he actually gets better gas mileage than
the ratings were so I have to say that they’d been rely bought I’m assuming the
20/20 is gonna be as reliable as the previous models but I shocked me cuz he
drives like a maniac and he said he’s got plenty of pickup Toyota makes their
own transmissions Aisin so they’re pretty good and building automated
transmissions the only time that they messed up is with their 8-speed
automatic they didn’t get the software and stuff right and a shift kind of
weird and they still run it’s not like they stopped but they’ve had some
problems with those so if you never want to miss another one
