    I'd imagine Cadillac reckons that new Cadillac buyers don't work on their own cars, or keep them for 100,000 miles.

    But if they do, the Stealerships can just rack up the shop hours charged.

    They couldn't care less about used car buyers.

    Yeah, thats REALLY what it is. I agree 100%.

    Most of those luxury class cars arent really designed with the mechanic in mind.

    I've come to believe that engineers putting designs on paper operate in a 2 dimensional world while the people working on the said product are 3 dimension. By the way @Vbb199, the northstar engine starter is beneath the intake manifold as well

    I was present in a car for one of those. It was definitely a lot stranger for ME than them. Didnt even think twice. It was kinda a sad 4 minutes for all parties involved, but hilarious to me.

    Lol. I just wanted to see where you'd go with that. This is Mexican country. With beer goes tacos and with tacos comes "real" salsa, hence the sore ass reference.
