Question How many repairs have been done to your Trep?

O.K. I went through my recipts for various things repaired on my Trep. I was astounded to learn that I have had my front struts replaced twice. Once in 11/2000 and another time in 1/2002. I now have the Trep in AGAIN to have the front two struts replaced. I went to the garage today to check on the progress and the mech. said that he pulled out a bunch of broken pieces of plastic collars? He said it is pretty messed up. WHAT THE FUCK! How could this happen in a little over a year? Also, I have had the sway bar link pins replaced twice. CV joint and axle. Two different times have had the left inner tie rod replaced. DAMN:mad: :mad:
Maybe I shouldn't of looked through my recipts.

Just wondering how many of you have had stuff fixed more than once.

Well, I only had to take my car in to have non-maintenance work done once... and that was for the speed sensor... so I'd have to say that I've never had to take it in for a repeat problem.

I took it in twice for the BCM, Twice for the inner tie end rods, three times for the bushings but hey I love my car. When it's okay it runs like a charm!!

No repeats for me. What have I repaired though? Inner tie rods, outer tie rods, tie rod ends, wheel bearings, control arms, crank sensor, MAP sensor, belts, battery, water pump, oil pan, flywheel, and last but certainly not least, a whole new engine. Grand total, too fucking much.

In this particular order.. almost too much for me to remember..

Water pump, thermostat, Inner and outer tie rods (all covered under warranty) and misc suspension parts, voluntary tune up since it was running odd, and to prevent the car from having problems later on... Timing belt, serpentine belt, gaskets for intake throttle bodies and intake plenum, cg spark plugs, 7mm silicone "performance" wires, replacement oem air filter, downstream o2 sensor, inner tie rods and bushings...(replacement), pcv and hoses, replacement NGK sparks, Taylor Spiro series 8mm wires (dodge f'd my first ones up.. didnt seat properly, which caused gap in plug/wire #5 and destroyed them over time.. carbon scoring etc)EGR valve, Crankshaft sensor.

And well, I'm sure there will be plenty else, but all in all.. I absolutely love the look of my car, and how it drives when it;'s all up to par.. Call me crazy, because I apparently am.

EDIT: I knew I forgot something..... I also had to replace a dead battery. Oh, and a turn signal light on the right. My original super white APC one burned out.. I know there has to be something else.. too .. but I forget..
