My dad is a die hard Ford man, me, I don't care what I drive, but my last 3 trucks have been Dodge's. My dad thought that his batteries were going bad as they did sit for 4 months or so down in AZ during the summer when the temps got up to 120 and they were also old. Today he went and bought more batteries and when I got home from work we spent a wonderful hour at K-mart doing the exchange ( K-mart is also Sears )
After that we went to Menard's to look at water heaters as mine had a leak. We kicked a few water heaters and left. Got into the Ford truck and it was not the batteries. It was the starter. So there we are in the parking lot with no way to go. I started calling the 3 people I know in WI to see if somebody could come and pick us up and take us back to my house as we would tow the Ford with the Dodge back home.
While I was making phone calls a very nice man stopped and had a bunch of tools. My dad used them and dropped the starter and while he was doing that the nice man called up Napa as the bad starter had a life time warranty on it and Napa brought a new one out to the parking lot. Dad got the new starter in. I called up and canceled the request for help and we were on the road again.
It just goes to show you that there are still really good people out there that will help without expecting to get anything in return (My dad tried ) and you should have a dodge.
