Boy do I feel like a big pile of dinosaur doo doo dung. It's great that you saved nearly $1000 bucks.
Hated how this spritely young female service advisor had to say," okay you dont want to do it today, so you want me to put the rejection sticker on?" Of course I said I'm not fixing it now and that's fine. Until I stood there and came to my NON -SENSING self and asked "ok, how long will this take!"
My immediate, instant satisfaction self wanted to pass inspection. In other words I needed my damn inspection sticker now.
So I just needed to justify this repair in my head. I could try a local mechanic, but they could find another thing wrong, mess it up, or put the wrong part, whatever.
Hey it's a nissan tech, using a nissan OEM part, which is guaranteed by the outrageous nissan price.
I could do it if I buy the parts but it's cold at the moment, even though it was like 65 that particular day folks. Very cold raining the next day tho.
I know!!!!.... because it's a decades old part, I hit a dozen curbs in my lifetime and the rubber part is deteriorated and loose. Even though seriously, it drove great, no drifting. Ok shut up me.
Anyways, I know absolutely zero anything about crossarms. Didn't know about it going bad, but understand parts under the rogue could go to s***.
Didnt even realize there is like nearly 2 pages a state inspector can look at to fail a car inspection by looking at just the suspension. Damnn moneyyyyy!
I mean dealerships have us by the ballsack if they are allowed to do the repairs they inspect.
Ok, I KNEW this going in, that's why I'm always nervous to pass.
Seriously, repairs should never be done by the inspecting company. Well I could have done that if my lazy a** walked away. But it should be law.
Saw a mechanic talk to a lady next to me and saw a crossbar pic on her nissan summary. Was it like a pre-thanksgiven sale or something?
I hate car inspections, but kinda still support because there are fools out there who dont know how to keep a car safe for the road. I hate to think a driver will still use brakes that dont work right. There had to be an in between where it's going bad. Not 100% work or fail.
For f*** sake, even though I was losing Christmas buying money, I was donating to this female service advisor for her holiday money. It was Thanksgiving, so I guess I spread a little monetary love to some nissan workers. Even though she was an ex-jeep employee of 5 years, her previous place of employment. Yippie-ka-yee folks!
