He rolled up with smoke pouring out from under the hood, got out calmly and walked inside and was just standing there for a minute before somebody asked him if he needed help and he was like yeah I think my car is on fire or something, service advisor comes hauling ass into the shop yelling for a fire extinguisher so we all run out front and the engine bay is just a ball of flames higher than the roof of the car.

He had it towed away, more than likely a total loss.

It made it 120k miles before this so it might’ve just shit out however I heard the service writer is having to speak with the “owners” mother about repairing it so that might give some insight on what kinda person drives it.

They sound like shit on the truck. Im sure on a 5-700lb wheel and tire combo they work. Boy were they useless on this truck. He didn’t want us to balance his new Michelins but we told him if he wanted any type of warranty on them we were going to.
