    Not in a million years would I pay such a thing. But if there is someone that will, I don't blame the dealer. I put myself in their shoes. They are there to make profit. As much profit as they...

    There's only the big nut on the biggish shank. I drove the empty set up in today just to do more shake down, and will check that. I'm also going to drop it off the ball and slap a good bit of...

    I was going to add it there too. As long as you copy it to there, and leave it here, I'm fine with that.

    I have no experience with these, but it seems to me it is some sort of linear exaggerator of the throttle input. Maybe not linear however. Meaning, if you have one of these, 50% of the throttle...

    Sounds like it is in the service belt area. A dealer should be able to find that easy with chassis ears / stethoscope and just replace it. But it sounds like you have a sport exhaust on that thing....

    Find another dealer. They LOVE to trade in. Well ... that's because they love to screw over people. Hence the reason to give them a problem vehicle.

    Maybe better yet ... sell the thing to...

    Not sounding too good, from what I've read. How long ago did you buy this vehicle? I ask because in the states, I think there is a requirement of either a 30 day or 60 day warranty. Not applicable...
