    I have a solution for that hood prop you're talking about. Lean in the driver's side window, and grasp that control stalk on the left. Snap it off, and use it to prop up the hood. It's originally supposed to be for turn and lane change indicators, but since nobody uses those anymore, the stalk has become redundant. Yeah, I know it's not really long enough to hold the hood up high, but since there's really nothing UNDER the hood that you should be messin' with, it doesn't really matter.
    OR.....maybe we could superglue a bunch of those rigid plastic "clamshell" packages together to make a prop for the hood.....they're certainly indestructible!

    No Jazz, the auto parts stores have begun to sell aftermarket versions of what was once standard and sensible. Evidently this issue upset Carl Icahn who owns hundreds of auto parts stores in the USA to the point where told the automakers to pound sand.

    Lots of good ones! Here's one the drives both me and my 11 year old daughter crazy -- pharmaceutical adds that warn you not to take it if you're allergic to it. For example, "Don't take Healthatron if you're allergic to Healthatron." Thanks for the heads up!

    I miss old fashioned car keys. Flat pieces of dependable metal that I could duplicate at a hardware store. Now a new “key” costs $250.

    My Toyota Tacoma is considered a 5 passenger vehicle (4 adults is about it)
    It has 13 cup holders. Really, 13?

    how many lights in the glovebox? ZERO!
    It is NOT a base model, either. Cmon, Toyota.

    Poor spelling, punctuation, and grammar.

    The English language takes enough of a regular beating without people who are so lazy, self-absorbed, inconsiderate, or unintelligent that they can't take the time to communicate in a thoughtful, articulate way. You know these people. They say/type stuff like "as long as your getting you point accross spelling an grammer doesnt matter. whocarez? lol"

    Before anyone starts millennial bashing, I've seen people of all age groups and educational backgrounds do this. It's just lazy and apathetic.

    Words can be so beautifully expressive. Why trash them?

    PLASTIC, plastic packaging. Really? Blister packs? WTF? Ban it all. Hard to get open , wasteful, bad for the environment. All this crap was fine without the plastic not that many years ago.
    I want single use plastic banned entirely.

    I don't mind going to the hardware store, looking at a bin full of switches and buying one. Why do I need a bunch of hard to open plastic?
    Those wax and paper milk/juice cartons were great.
    Nothing like a cold Coke out of a real glass bottle. Glass is 100% recyclable. Local glass bottle plants were everywhere providing jobs too.

    So as not to be disrespectful to both Eric (Nickadermis) and Paul (In Colorado) - I got no complaints.

    (It’s all small stuff)

    I was talking to someone that worked for me years ago. I said, “You know what really pi$$es me off?” He said, “Everything.”
