Want me to show you a vehicle that has the utility of a suburban or Avalanche? How about a suburban or an Avalanche? There is thousands for sale, with less miles than the 300,000 the vehicle had and less cost than the $9,000 dollars for those repairs (that didn’t fix anything).I didn’t ask for or receive compensation, nor expect anything. Sometimes you do that for people you’ve known for half your life, and consider them family.
I’m not saying I fully agree with spending $9k on that repair, but there is more to vehicle ownership than straight financial consideration. Show me a car you described that has the utility of a Suburban or Avalanche. Sometimes you need more than just an a-b transportation appliance. At least I do.
And I’m happy you helped someone, I think that’s great. Thats a bit irrelevant to the point I‘m trying to make. My point is a woman driving around in an Avalanche with 300,000 plus miles, should not have been sold that job. She was in a tough situation and taken a huge advantage of. Luckily the guy that started this thread came to her aid.
But $9,000 can buy you a nice used vehicle. I don’t know what this poor lady, with breast cancer does for work...maybe she is a contractor or HVAC technician, plumber or Mason, needing a vehicle like this to drive her and her torches, tools, welder, tile saw, and everything else, from job site to job site. But if she’s not, and just needs to commute and take her children to school or elsewhere...I don’t know? Maybe take nine grand and buy a used Honda CR-V and drive it a million miles or something?
