It’s gotten to that point where I must vent. Engine Hood Supports - for over a century Cars & Trucks have had a flip up steel rod that never failed. So why do we need these stupid struts that cost up to a hundred dollars to replace? This to me is a money grab and I have decided when I go shopping for another vehicle that the first thing I will ask my salesperson to do will be to raise the hood. This is an infuriating and useless expenditure for a car owner. If you cannot figure out that the end of the rod goes into the hole in the bonnet... Lastly Princess Elizabeth was a certified Truck Tech in WWII and if She could lift the bonnet on a two ton truck there is simply no excuse for anyone else. Engine Hood Supports are proof of not only how dumbed down we as a society have become but also what limp wrist wimps and mental weaklings to have a bunch of boardroom swine dictate what is to be. So what about You? Happy about everything? Or are You as mad as Hell and not going to take it anymore? Have a nice day and don’t forget to take Your soma.
