    It goes back in on Monday, he said it would be done Tuesday. Fingers crossed

    I should have just called you, but it didn't even enter my mind. For some reason I still think of you as a Honda guy

    Got them, waiting to see if my friend can get them as he just spent 1500 for head gaskets, timing belt, and clutch!

Sorry dude, good luck tho on getting it back working good again!

    Cut Dave some slack. If he screwed it up, he will admit it. He's as honest as hell, and has forgotten more about Subaru than any of us will ever know.

    Wade- Its cool man. If you work for Lithia as a Tech you might as well just know every single car line, our labor rates are so high the only real business this company gets is from its used cars so you learn to work on just about everything.

    Carrman, sorry that he is your friend and I said that stuff man, I really didnt mean it the way that it sounds but being around this business basically my whole life it is pretty hard to actually find an honest person doing this line of work anymore competing against so many different dealerships and other "shade trees". Say what you want about my expertise or knowledge in anything, but dont take anything I say real serious or to heart.

    I wasn't singling you out about knowledge. Dave knows a huge amount about these cars, and is a good wrench. I became friends with him after he began working on my cars, so my opinion is based in his performance, not my friendship. You just won't beat him and his labor rate wherever else you might go!

    You havent called me for my labor, or labor rate yet He is a good guy tho, I do talk to him a lot since he does work on a fair amount of Honda's. Anyway, I hope Wade's car gets taken care of and everything turns out fine.

    When did Dave work on Hondas? I thought he was strictly Subaru.

    Just called him. I dropped the car off Sunday night, it was supposed to be done tonight, he just told me he hasn't even started it yet. He told me it would be done tomorrow night. I get the feeling I'm being blown off.
