But a non sealed paint job and a my link that keeps resetting itself and jumbling my layout creates grave concern for me personally.
And sure. I get on my car like you, perhaps. And maybe the half shaft issue and the strut snap are user caused incidents; I've considered this similarly. But then I start to wonder "what if"....
Quality is both real and perceived. A seemingly simple paint decision (or lack thereof) behind the wheels seems innocuous .... Or is it?
I don't believe the wheels are an quality issue for me... paint or no paint. The orange peel and thin paint is, but I don't think it is an indicator of a poor quality vehicle. Sad but most paint jobs today on cars suck!!
The radio is flaky
and I would suggest getting it flashed. FWIW chevy needs a little dogging every now and then.
