Nah.  My Clarity is just fine.  The entire undercarriage of his Jetta has rusted out.  He can't drive over 45 mph without it shaking itself apart.  Estimates are $3500 to fix it all, so we decided to opt for a new car.  He's been all-moto since August when this issue arose and he ordered the Civic.  Manual transmission is now a special order.  :bluduh:

Ironically, the reason it is rusted out is that the parts in his Mexican-made Jetta somehow came from Germany, where they don't get coated against salt.  Those parts were supposed to be made in Mexico, where they DO get coated for the salt. Again,  :bluduh:

So, if any of you were watching tonight's football game between the Packers and the Team that Wasn't the Packers ;D and noticed the snowfall, well that snow has now moved south to Milwaukee.  I guess tomorrow won't be a good riding day.

Germany (all brands) doesn't coat its parts against corrosion?

I have no clue if that's the case.

We had frost this morning.

BRRRRRR... thank goodness that it warms back up during the day. 50ºF is still shivverishness but it's better than 20ºF.

The Milwaukee forecast is for 1 to 3 inches of snow overnight.  But back in the 40s F by the close of the week.  So maybe I'll get a January ride.  But I think I'll have to be careful for ice in shady areas. And I'm not so sure about getting out before the salt gets washed away or worn off.
