Used to be a happening place..... now it's slower as the last few dealer service departments I've seen lately.

 

Sadly, I know that Saltmine and Jim Warman have gone to the big shop in the sky, but where is everyone else?? Also, who owns this site now and/or who is the community administrator??

I am spending more time deleting spammers than I am reading anything on the forums or answering any questions.

 

If it wasn't for recalls and warranty work, the dealer service departments might just as well shut down. I can pretty much get the very same OEM parts off the internet for less than 1/2 the price of a dealer parts department. Even with paying the shipping charges. If I have the time to wait.

 

And since I inherited grand ma's car after she passed away, a spare vehicle insures that I certainly won't be without a ride, and I can wait for my parts to be delivered.

I noticed this thread has had 12 views and 1 response...... are the "views" coming from spammers??

 

I can't believe the amount of spam traffic we have here.... I have also been deleting them by the dozens.

Well you two must be doing a great job on the spam, as slow as this site is I'm surprised it's still here.

I still come here a few times a day but why I'm not sure .............

If I had this much spam in a can, I wouldn't have to go to the grocery store for a year.)

i still stop by and check in every now and then, but usually nothing new to see. i think in general message boards of all kinds see less traffic as most people use facebook groups to post stuff.

I'm probably one of a few people that don't have a Fakebook account, or a smartphone. I still do shit the old school way...... heck, I even write checks to pay bills.
