I dont know how he got the door panel off. I will ask.
A tow truck driver could not have gotten the door open. The problem was
in the actual 'thing' that holds the door closed. pulling the levers etc
did not open the door.
That's not really a fair comparison. More realistic would be to compare the
costs of fixing the car to what it would cost to replace the entire car
with something known with certainty to be in better condition. It's that
comparison which has me hanging on to my '91 Integra.
Well true-- it's usually cheaper to repair than replace. But the repair
costs do add up.
Not to mention the inconvenience, lost time, frustration, or safety
issues--- as in you (or your wife/kid) get stranded at night in the wrong
side of town or have Old Betsy crap out while going 75 mph on the
interstate...in the rain/snow....or two states away from home...or on your
way to an important client meeting...or on the way to the ER....
Me? When I lose confidence in my ride, I buy a new one.......
