They need a car class for non-mechanics just to teach the May people the basic parts of a car and what they do so they can have an idea what their mechanic is talking about.

Had a pin hole leak in the radiator of a PT Cruiser, the mech & supervisor at the franchise tires+ shop tried to convince me it would be empty by the time I got home.
