car companies are fucking theifs!
    #3223586 - 10/06/04 06:26 PM (13 years, 2 months ago)

i called up the dealer today to see how much the parts are gonna cost to repair my car.  its a 99 ford escort.  i cannot believe this.

passenger door shell (no paint no windo no electronics.  the most basic bar bones door imaginable)-$1100
passenger window-$300
passenger front fender-$92...not bad compared to others
passenger mirrow-$110 (not electic all manual and uber basic)
back wheel-$92

that is not including 15% tax or 60/hour labour.  what the fuck is wrong with them!?!?!?!  now im hella pissed i didnt have collision.  so this week im going to the body shops to check out what they can fix and how much.

the other problem is thats not the half of the damage.  the rear passenger fender is part of the unibody and it is dented and the front passenger is dented to fuck and slightly bent.  but i did manage to get it so the door can open/close now.

the other problem is there are only 2 cars of the same model in the junkyards on the island.  one is the wrong colour and the door is the luxury one.  what a fucking gyp, even the guy on the phone couldnt believe what he was reading.  fuck they are con artists.

if you are ever buying a new car dont look so much at the cost of the car, go research the cost of teh parts. ford escorts are great little cars and i love them and they are cheap, but to buy new parts if a fucking joke.


rant over.  :stoned:

Man..seems like the good idea would be to just find a 600-800 dollar car on the side of the ride (like..early 90's Saturn, shitty caddy) and just go with that :wink: If you total that one, buy a new one.

I really like that plan...maybe I'll do that. There are tons of cars for sale that cost way less than your repairs. Given, your engine works. Are the repairs neccessary? If not, just let them be. I'd rather have 1600 bucks than fix my 99 Escort.

But that's just my opinion. Good luck with that.

i'd try to find an escort with a compatible body style and take that door and other parts...salvage yards and places similar. might be kind of hard though to find newer models wrecks though. i'm not sure about escorts, but some models have years that are interchangeble with the next.

that would save a chunk of cash, but you'd have to be almost lucky to find a car worth taking pats from.

i agree with you, unless it's really bad, i have no problem with cruising around with some dents..
no shame.

i dont either but my door is completely fucked. it got pretty minced, and the windshield is a have to have. wheel as well. i have done a lot of work o nit today, and im left with this. need new door, new window, new rear wheel, and new windshield. wreckers was the first place i went but there are like NO newer exorct accidents in this place. liek i said, 2 cars. there is a mercury clone of the escort i didnt even thnk to ask tehm. off i go tomarow to the junkers. i really hope they have somthing. basically 2 grand and i have to put it in myself and still have huge dents, i dont think so.

but fixing is a must, this car has a lot of centimental value. its more than a 5 grand peice of metal to me (family related). anyway, anyone have any other ideas other than body shop, dealer, junkers? im trying my damnedist to fix the dents myself, but they make new cars to be put together not taken apart...

The car I have doesn't have cruise control.

It was a brand new 2001 model and didn't have cruise control.

WTF...

I didn't even think to ask if it had cruise control when I bought it because I assumed that in this day in age, such a thing would come standard. How wrong I was...

hehe they make you pay for everything.  mine doesnt either, or ac or power windows/locks.  i prefer not havin gmos tof this shit cause when the 2 cent swtich snaps 1 week after the warranty runs out ya gotta remortgage the hous et pay for it.  now im even more pissy, they really hit a nerve.  cant stand them, im never buying a new car ever.  i dotn think ive ever been more agitated about such a non important thing.  anyway time to read some happy gardening stuff.  peace :smile:

new cars suck

they arent designed to last at all, and fixing them cost major $$$

I drive a vintage vw, cheap as all get out to fix, no inspection, no emissions, $8.00 a year registration, cant get better then that.
