    I purchased a new Fairmont about 15-20 years ago, picked it up after its first service, opened the passenger door for my wife (I know I am old fashioned) and it fell off being a bit miffed I got the service manager to pick it up, the hinges were full of rust and had sheared the pin he told me "they are heavy doors" ?????

    Many years ago I got a hankering for a Mercedes 280SEL. Having little money, it would have to be a well-used one. Found one at a dealership advertising 70+ thousand miles. But on the inside of the door, where the maintenance stickers are, it said the last oil change was 286 thousand! I called this to the dealer's attention and he shrugged.
