So sorry for the UPS Driver. Keystone cops just don’t give a sh!t
My mother in law has a 12MY Focus, and she hates it. She's had problems with it since nearly day 1. It took about 3yrs or so, but she took Ford to court over the transmission issue and they ended up paying off her car and refunding her what she already paid. She still has the car though as despite the transmission issue, it's more economical for her to keep that than buying a new car. That's not to say that she wants a Honda or Toyota now as her replacement to her Focus.Does this sound familiar?
“My hands are dirty. I feel horrible,” said a Ford engineer who played a key role in developing the popular compact cars.news.yahoo.com
It took over 10 years for them to put the parts back in the 4r70w that they removed for cost savings; then they don't break.
Not even for me, lol.
Holy Shibby!!! Sad this happened. Also, infuriated that it happened the way it happened. It should have turned into a hostage situation where hours later the guy was saved. Now, I wouldn't be surprised to see lawsuits by the families of the deceased victims put up against the involved law enforcement agencies as well as UPS.Sucks to be a UPS driver today...
4 killed in shootout following theft of UPS truck in Florida: Police
The driver of the UPS truck was among those killed.
I see they've blurred all the footage now, but as the shootout was happening, the gunman apparently pulled the ups driver across in front of him, as a human shield.
You could see the brown outfitted driver being dragged headfirst down the steps by the shooter, as the driver collapsed under the barrage of gunfire.
That's why there's a huge blurred spot across the whole thing now, on all the video; you could see him get shot multiple times, and die in the video. Blood was pouring off the stairs where he was laying.
You could see a Large number of rounds hitting the truck, the shooter, and the ups driver.
The shooter's gun was across and above the driver; the cops shot the driver at least 10 times, by my count.
There was a huge pool of blood on the pavement, with more draining out of the truck.
CNN carried it live, and unedited.
Kill 'em all, God knows his own, I guess.
Damndest thing I've ever seen; the cops seemed to me to have no interest in the safety of the bystanders, or the driver; they were using the adjacent vehicles as cover, and shooting through them at times.
I was watching the political stuff today, then that hit.
Protecting the innocent was not on the menu today.
I want to say it was like a 2004 Nissan Murano. Labor prices and parts tend to be more expensive here also .. this shop probably charges about $120-140/hr. Id say they paid about average - I think the initial $1500 was a mis-diagnosis on the mechanics part because when he brought it to me afterwards and asked about it, I immediately recognized a failed transmission. But they trust this guy because he goes to their church. LOLHoly ****! Your friend got ripped off. I’ve only done one of them because the warranty was extended to 120k, and a 130k mile Altima isn’t worth more than $2500 on a good day, but the bill on the one I did came to $4800 all in, including a rebuilt trans and the reprogramming.
