The wedge worked fine. Easy to adjust. Reverse, grab a hand full of e brake. Couple stops in the back lot then road test.

You apply a emergency brake here in Chicago, your next move will be to call up a tow truck. Because you have just locked on your brakes. Maybe that wedge works in other areas of the country, but not all that well here.

A 8 year old V W might still have some life and or worth to it. Not much, but some. However, a Chrysler product is usually worthless and used up by the time the warranty expires.

 

When the back struts rotted out and came through the rear cradle floor of my cousin's V W, it was 15 years old. Our Chryslers, you only get 6-7 years before one can see the springs poking through the strut towers.

 

The Crusher only bids on our immobile gems. The ones that can move under their own power, regardless of condition, any fool can purchase. As is, as shown, NO warranty.

 

Any one who bitches, I tell them this is why they have new car dealers. You just decided to come here instead.) :lol:
