You Are Safe Only In A Well-Maintained Car
About 31 years ago back in the Mid West there was a horrific accident that killed a prominent TV newsman and his twin boys. A car (far) in front of him on the highway had a muffler that was almost falling off. It did fall off and wrapped around his axle. The car became airborne and crashed through the newsman’s windshield, killing him and his children immediately. Even more gruesome was the fact that his wife was following her husband in another car behind him. She witnessed her family dying because someone chose not to fix their car.
We may have touched on this before, but here it goes again! Don’t shoot the messenger, please.
Because your BMW or MINI has not had the attention it needs and now is in need of dire repair, that is not our fault. Your oil leaking all over the engine is not only a fire hazard, but an obvious environmental issue. You’re leaving oil wherever you park your car, (hey that’s nice). Your tires showing cord almost to the point of shredding is not our fault, etc…..the list can go on and on.
We didn’t make it – We did not buy it – We did not drive it – We did not wear it out –
Don’t be ticked off at your shop when the list is long. You chose to ignore maintenance for years. We can’t force you to fix your BMW, obviously.
It’s our responsibility to tell you about it and it is your responsibility to fix it – or get it off of the road.
