RE: How many folks just want to gripe about EVs?

RE: Tesla great looking EV cars

I just ran across this browsing the business news. $30,000 Replacement battery for a $10,000 EV Volt https://www.msn.com/en-us/autos/news/dealership-quotes-30-000-to-replace-battery-in-a-10-000-chevrolet-volt/ar-AA11hHuE?ocid=msedgntp&cvid=0dbef53ffc6d9573d3b1598778794747 Yah it’s goofy. First the dealer used the wrong part number. New batteries haven’t been available for volts for 5 years so although the number isn’t wrong it’s not the right number. The correct number is a 9100 dollar reman battery. Which makes sense as why would someone put a new battery in a 12 year old car. Anyway, GM parts online sells the reman part number battery for 6700 dollars. A couple third party shops have estimated 6 to 8 hours labour. As well there are batteries from written off bolts for 3500 to 4000 dollars. And the original battery is probably still good so someone will want to buy it and rebuild it. More than likely a bad cell or a balancing board. Anyway the 30’000 dollar battery replacement story turned out to be about a quarter or less than that. Great story though. Most of my cars and trucks I try to keep 15-20 years.

RE: Modify standard bathroom roof vent for shorter people

I just got a portable stool that folds up and keep it in the bathroom. We also have one by the bed. My wife is only 4'10" now and shrinking. Mike

RE: New Stereo/cs-dvd unit install

CD/DVD you’re kidding right? Why would anyone throw away the older things that you like and have paid for just to get some new version that would cost a bundle of money for something that that is just a replacement and not better quality? Mike
