I hear you Frank, there is a gamble. I know that I have never been STRANDED like that in my older cars. My one year old cars, now those I have been stranded and we are talking days at the dealer in some other town and me driving a rental.

The problems with older cars, the parts that fail usually give you a warning. You hear a bearing, you see water dripping down, you get a stumble when you accelerate, there is something telling you to check it out. On the late model cars, they just STOP right where they are at.

Like I said, just want to toss out all the options to people.
