Time to complain

It has been awhile since I sat down and complained but after reading the paper this AM I think it is about time. 1. Who hires these writers that spout advice about cars Click and Clack are not always on the money but at least they do no harm. This one advises to plug your tire, no one plugs a tire anymore it is just not a safe way to repair a tire, definitely not a speed rated one. Sure it is cheap but it will usually void any warranty or road hazard and with the price of tires(thanks to increase in petroleum) it is worth spending the extra bucks to get it done right. Use the plug and patch in one piece method everything I have read says this is the only way to repair a tire.2. Advice on buying the biggest highest rated battery you can afford. NO no the alternator in today’s vehicles is designed to keep a certain size battery charged anything thing higher and it will ,in time, damage the alternator. The electrical system in the modern car is borderline at best we expect a lot from it in a very hostile enviorment, heat is the killer and they make the alternator small to save space so add more strain and a failure is imminent I have seen the addition of a amp cause problems.3. Only go to a clean shop, a good idea, unless the shop is to clean because they have no business clean and neat but have a used look is the best approach also check there equipment if they have the newest they have to know what they are doing to afford it. Also never go to one with an empty lot look for cars similar to your own and there should always be a number of vehicles around waiting for parts or what ever. 4. Why must the engine noise be so loud on the TV it is almost impossible to hear the announcer. So turn it down a little the strange thing all the networks are doing it. I liked it when DW cranked it up but not all the time.5. If whoever writes Millard Filmore the comic runs for President I am voting for him. I am surprised it has not moved to the editorial page.6. If the modern auto has a thousand times more lines of computer code that the Appollo then lets start paying the techs that can repair these the money they deserve. Crew Chief
