What is the sound of one piston slapping?
What is the sound of one piston slapping?

So my grandfather walked into our local Subaru into the dealership with this:

Maybe 54k on the clock?

He broke the passenger side mirror on a pole. Took the red plastic off. Told us he was taking it to the dealership to get fixed. Said was possibly considering trading for a Jeep. Kept talking about his Blue 2-door 89 Stickshift Wrangler that he owned when I was a kid. For months.

Returns from the dealership with this:

I'm really confused. We all hated the last one. But at least you could've selected between gears 1 and 4. CVT. This doesn't even have fog lights. No options. Blank buttons everywhere. No explanation. He was gone for 30 minutes.

"Did you test drive it?" No. "Did you ask about options or look at any of the other vehicles?" No. "Did you think about getting a Jeep or an Impreza?" Those are nice, I guess, but no. "What did you do when you got there? What did you say? Why?" I told them to give me another one. "Really?" Really. "Did you pick the color?" No. "Do you like it?" No. "Are you keeping it?" I don't know.
