So after arguing with Arbella for a good 20 mins they gave in and approved a rental for 4 days. Went to Enterprise to see what beauty they pegged me with and I end up with this monstrosity. Shitty does not even begin to describe this sad sorry excuse for a "car" or hatchback or whatever the hell Dodge calls this thing. I cannot wait to get rid of this crapwagon. I miss my VW Crying or Very sad

I'm planning some neutral drops later Twisted Evil

I like the newer Dodges. I wonder.......if you wrecked the Caprice would they have given you a charger as a rental?

The outside is ok, but everything else is just awful. Supposedly it has a 2.4L engine. I've found maybe half of those liters. The transmission is about as slushy as the leftover slurpies at a 7-11 at 2am and the interior plastics were made from recycled walmart dinnerware.

I think the transmission is a CVT.

LOL

Both times my brother needed a rental via insurance, they gave him full size pickups because he had the Roadmaster and it was a large car. The first one was one of those newer Tundras (not bad but very overrated truck) and the other one was a current Silverado (nice truck but the upholstery attracted about every single piece of lint possible, and a couple of the interior parts felt a little chintzy).

Nope. He's using a laptop and I'm very against even the notion of those crap-tops. Plus I'm about that blind even with my glasses. I guess that's what happens when you only get you eyes checked every 4 or 5 years Laughing

i regularly clean both the awful calibers and the rather nice silverados at work, the fabric seats are like giant lint rollers and make my life hell and my manager wonders why ive been vaccuming one car for half an hour. cadet, i feel like mailing you a sympathy card for having to drive about in such a dreadful pile of poorly made plastic. whenever im forced to drive one i feel like even the gears in the transmission are made from the same kind of plastic that is in CD cases.

They are required to give you a COMPARABLE vehicle.
Arguing COMPARABLE is touchy tho, you may have to wreck a Caddy for a charger
