Finally got my stang back today...

I absolutely hated being away from her. . 5th synchro was shot, transmission seal had to be replaced because it was leaking and the blocking rings were bad.

I'm a little upset though because they put 12 miles on it and when I got in the car they had the bass ALL the way up and the treble as well. Usually I have it in the negatives. I'm surprised they didn't blow my sub. I lied I'm livid. But still...

Every time my mom drives my car she rocks the hell out of my system and spins out like crazy ( not on purpose of course ). I guess it brings back the glory days of kick *** 6x9s in a station wagon or something

Oh man. I'd kill my mom if she did that. She used to drive stick and race cars when she was younger but I've never let her drive my car, or anyone else for that matter.

Eeek. I had to drive the woo to work the past few days since my car was in the shop and I hated it. It's so hard driving an automatic. .

damn chica! i know the feeling!!!!

they had my car over two weeks doing synchros on mine and I wanted to kill them! they kept telling me they were waiting on parts, waiting on parts. After a week into it I asked them to fax a list of parts over, and when they asked me why and i answered with "so the parts companies my shop deals with will tell me how far out they really are." they started to get their *** in shape.

I get in the car to a whipping 18 miles put on my car!!!! i wanted to kill this place. It is safe to say I will never recommend this shop to anyone.... ever!

See! They're all thrives!! It was only the 5th synchro. They had it for a day and then called me and said when they opened the transmission they found more **** wrong so they kept it for another day because they needed to order parts again. -.-

I hated it from day 1. myself and one other mechanic have touched my car. And to leave it with someone who took it for a stroll and had their hands all over it made me sick to my stomach every day they told me it wasnt ready!

all that matters is that me and my baby sat in the driveway and had a long talk about how i would never let the bad people touch her ever again. safe to say we had a nice stroll after that!

I am worried that they broke something and they were using the "were still waiting on parts to come in" excuse. Safe to say that when I get to work tomorrow that I will be doing a complete check over her. She's gonna like the way I feel her up tomorrow! Gotta make sure my baby is safe and sound before taking her back to the track. This 500 mile break in is KILLING ME!

Pfff. I wish I could do that. I wanna know what a-hole owned my baby before I did and blew 5th gear. It's been doing it since 39k miles when I got her. I just recently hit 47k. . I'm putting wayyy too many miles on her.

Re: Finally got my stang back today...

think of miles like we take steps. I see the miles that I put on mine (73k) as the same as when I go for a walk through a new area. Its better and im happier to be walking, than I would be if I couldnt. I am sure our cars think the same way. As long as we take care of them when the certain intervals come for maintenance work and we do them, all should be well

I cant sleep right now! all I can think about is getting behind the wheel of my baby, putting the top down, and just cruisin the back roads while the suns still down!

Ewww. You got a vert? Lol. How many miles you think mine will last? Without rebuilding the motor or anything.

dont EWWW me young lady!! (well idk if your older or younger) and I love my vert! except for they adjusted the Roll Cage times at the track this year... gaaay!

If you keep doing all the maintenance work on the car, i wouldnt be shocked to see it hit well into the 6 digits. I have two cars I service that are over 600K

Hahah. I am young. Just turned 19. I only like vert's if they're hard tops. :/. I mean I like how they look with the top down. But when it's up I don't care for it too much.

Whoa whoa whoa. 600k? For a mustang or a car in general? The highest I've seen was about 250-300k and that's without any serious repairs.

Re: Finally got my stang back today...

one is a honda civic coupe, and the other is a panel work van. both do some serious deliveries and rack up some hardcore mileage.

its ok, you havent seen my car since the new work, actually now that I think about it... no one has haha. you will look at it (with the top up) and be like DAMN i want a new edge vert!

No I thought about that. It's been reset before and the numbers went back to 0 not +10 on each.

The only new edge model I like is the cobra... Otherwise it needs to be 05 & up or 64-69
