Jeep FWD-5-door-hatchback (aka “Patriot”), 140k miles, requires mucho shifting effort all of a sudden (it has a tru man-transmission, for those keeping score). Also, other issues, but those aren’t pertinent, other than to illustrate that it’s falling apart.

Dropped off Jeep Pieceofshit for clutch bleed this morning, now needs new master cylinder.


Coincidentally, I took the day off work yesterday to trade it in, only to be denied by dealers because I want beer on a 70% Isopropyl budget.

UPDATE: Not JUST the master cylinder, apparently! They suspect something else is worn as well.
