“The flimsier the product, the higher the price”
The damage to the TT — a totalled tire and a cracked windshield — are both not covered under warranty. So I've got to come up with I think $800 to replace the windshield, and then probably around $250 for the tire, and then $1200 for a set of winter tires… Not fun!
As far as the news, remember Rule of Aquisition number 190:
“Hear all, trust nothing”
