funny ATS story

Well I have a few buddies that seem to like ATS even though they don't own any of there products. I always warn them to check into their stuff before they buy something(i have never heard one good things about ATS, but a million bad things). Anyways, their friend went and bought a transmission from ATS and had it delivered to an ATS dealer to have it installed(that way nothing could go wrong), the whole project was in the ball park of $12,000. Me and my friends were having arguements the whole time whether if it was going to be worth the money or not. So the kid drives to Dallas, gets the tranny installed, and everything goes good.....

then he gets on the highway to come home, after a little bit on the road, the tranny just goes out. So he is stuck outside of dallas, and it is going to take a month for his truck to get back in.

made me laugh

If I paid $12K for a trans they would be putting a new one in tonight. That really sucks for him, I hate to hear horror stories like that.
