    Haha we just changed the cabin filter on the lady’s rav4 and it looked exactly like yours, full of grass seed! Every time the dealership techs would come out and ask we say no thinking it was just another high price rip off

    I can name one of the biggest rip off Toyota I’d pulling. The lady leased this Rav4 2018 well the L cheapo crap ass tires that came on It don’t even last the life of her lease. And it’s not like she’s drag racing. The last couple times we had the schedule maintenance they would come back and say all your tires are terrible only 15% here are some options....that were well over $800 for them to install new tires. I found some new used tires for 400 bucks Installed and balanced for another 65. It was my fault but one week after installing new used tires we scheduled maintenance at the dealership and those techs rotated the tires and charge us an extra 50 bucks or something like that and they had only been on there for a week. Made me so damn mad but it was our fault for “not” telling them not to rotate the new tires

    No offense but I don’t think I’d ever buy used tires. Just seems risky to me.

    I said “New used”. In this circumstance the tires were taken off of a new vehicle so the owner could put some fancy rims and wheels on. And I save $$$$$$ Why in the hell put brand new tires on a vehicle we’re gonna give up in 6 months. When it comes to her vehicle I wouldn’t put anything on there that I didn’t feel confident in. This was last October, I just needed to get her through the winter safe

    Besides toilet paper and filters I buy almost everything I can what I call “new used”

    Vehicles, tools, hunting-fishing equipment, home goods ......Almost everything I decide to purchase is often found through craigslist, fb marketplace or Blemished. I RARELY go to the store and buy something new Unless I absolutely have to have it that second Why pay the extra money. let some other sucker take the lost after they used it one time and decide to sell.


    Sorry to get off topic

    Our main freezer died last winter. Had to have it. Priced em new. While looking this lady was chewing the sales guy a new ass, the one she bought from him and had him deliver 2 weeks ago is WHITE! She don't like white it has to be stainless you get your butt there in the morning and pick that thing up and bring my stainless. I caught him in a tough moment and got it for half price delivered. 22cu ft. They brought it straight to us from her! It was still cold inside when it got there! :)
