    This discussion on serviceability makes me chuckle and recall a discussion I had with an Uncle 30 years ago. As far as he was concerned the 67’ Ford Falcon was about the last good car that an average guy could keep running.

    Thirty years from now somebody will fondly reminisce about the good old 2020 vehicles.

    Also, finally figured out this thread is about problems not brakes...

      Challenger I know it's a little late for this but ---------- no salvage yard options for your valve covers? that's the route I would have taken and in fact would have scouted the youpullandpay yards first as it would have been about 10 bucks a cover... very popular engine so good chance for scoring from them first...

      just checked - they are 8.99 for steel but 14.99 for aluminum

      the good thing about Upullandpay is a valve cover is a valve cover --- they just need to see it for the material difference not model and make, which means if a car has an inherent problem and the parts go like hot cakes they don't say "ah hah - you got a V/6 honda ehh? those covers are worth gold i tell ya ---- gold!!!"

        Sadly there are no u-pulls in my area any more. THEY pull, and charge accordingly.

          Frankly, I doubt it. IMHO my truck was junk the day I signed on the line for it. No user -serviceable parts inside, everything made to a price point and emissions. Nobody's gonna miss the 2020 vehicles since we now live in a throw-away society. Certainly I don't see guys rebuilding and hot-rodding like they used to. If you try to do it *legally* then it becomes prohibitively expensive to re-engineer....
