During our first winter snow storm, I put the truck into 4 wheel drive while I drove around getting things for my wifes birthday. While backing out of a parking lot I heard a loud crunching noise coming from the font axle. I had a scheduled maintenance appointment coming up so I arranged for an appointment a few days later. It turned out the left front axle shaft fell apart. Oh, it was to be covered under warranty thats not my issue. The problem I have is that it wasn’t able to be fixed that day.
They were great about it all and arranged for and paid for a rental vehicle. Imagine my horror when Enterprise came and picked me up in a Dodge Avenger. I try to be open minded about things so I accepted it as my rental.
It was a well equipped vehicle, and my wife was looking forward to being in a car again. Me, not so much. It seemed to me to be nothing more than an updated K car. The interior felt like plastic junk. I really didn’t like it.
It wasn’t until tonight when I was out driving with the stereo cranked up loudly, feeling the solid frame of a truck beneath me once again that everything felt like it was back to the way it is supposed to be.
I like my truck.
