Unexpected development with new vehicle purchase

I bought a new vehicle a few months ago (wont tell brand cause I'm not trying to open THAT can of worms) and ever since then, I've probably taken more surveys than I took tests in college. Couple from the dealer, couple from JD Powers. Everyone wants to know what Danesdad thinks. You know what I think? I think the high beam swirch should be put back on the floor like God intended.

Agreed. That would leave a free hand to work the windshield wiper lever when it rains.

Good night Chesty, wherever you are......

Re: Unexpected development with new vehicle purchase

I feel your pain, I bought a new truck in April and I get 2 emails a week and a call for a survey every 3 weeks. Hey, I like the truck, but how many times do they have to hear it?...

Alrighty then!

I cant ignore them because I could win 100 GRR just for taking one. One company sent me a gold dollar.

I know what you mean. I'm waiting for Publishers Clearing House to show up on my doorstep. They told me I may have already won 10 million dollars.

wait two years when you start getting the very official looking extended warrenty offers from second hand companies trying to pass themselves off as being affiliated with the automaker itself.

Boy that brings back memories. I can remember working out of state when I was a young lad and using an unfamiliar work truck. One night we headed out for pizza with the high beams on and a car came from the opposite direction. It must of taken a good minute of stomping my foot on every square inch of the floor looking for the high beam switch. By the time I hit the switch the car was passing us. I looked over and saw it was a state police cruiser. I was sure he was going to pull us over but he kept going. I'm sorta glad there on the turn signal now, makes it easier to find.
