Here’s Everything Broken On Your Cars

I have a spectrum

2016 Mazda CX-5, the one good car because it has never needed a repair in 5 years. It does need the mineral deposits cleaned off the side windows and the snow tires swapped out.

2002 Ford F150

sticky door lock on passenger side

minor oil and trans fluid leaks, need friction modifier in the rear differential

Tires are old and starting to crack.

2003 Buick LeSabre “Moby Dick” the kid’s beater

broken exhaust hanger (secure but rattling)

hood will latch but not fully close due to minor collision damage

broken tail light lens, broken inner door panel, dead lights in HVAC panel.

Epitomizes “a GM car will run badly longer than a Honda will run well” since the 3800 V6 starts first try and runs strong, the transmission is solid and the ride is no worse at 213,000 than 21,000. It’s the crap plastics that let it down

Also the motorcycles need some love

1978 BMW R100S

overdue for oil filter and valve clearances, needs correct front fender hardware and new choke cables

1983 Honda cm250c

recently resurrected needs a battery, a horn and tires made in this century. Also insurance and tags

Sir, I am begging you nicely to have one vehicle that works. Reading all of this actually gave me anxiety. You are far, far braver than me.
