Well I was in autozone the other day. One of the guys behind the counter asked me what kind of car I had, since I said it was a unique car. I told him the usual "86 pontiac fiero gt". He then told me after he laughed saying "No thats not unique at all" I asked him if he knew of any other mid engine american sports cars. He ignored that then said "now the 84 and 85's those are unique since they have a lifetime transferable warranty on the motor" I said "yeah okay" and left since I am pretty sure that is BS. Anyone else hear about that mythical warranty? To me it sounds like a unicorn. It would be wicked to have, but its never gonna happen for obvious reasons.

Rofl, Ithink he needs to stop sniffing exhaust fumes. He is probably thinking lifetime guarantee on some cheapo replacement electrical motor they sell.

He's thinking about the recalls. I think all of the 84 engines were eligible for replacement. (Nobody shoot me if I'm wrong. K?)
Recalls "technically" are good forever. Of course, after the bankruptcy, I suspect that they can tell everyone to go and pound sand. (Not sure. Just a guess.)
But to stretch that into a "lifetime warranty"? I wan't some of what he's smoking.

Haha You've got me there, but Napa was closed. It seems you don't need any real automotive knowledge to work at autozone. IMHO a salesman should know more about what they're selling than the customer.

around my area there is a autozone just about a mile and a half from my house so i used to go there, but after finding out that everyone there has no idea what their talking about (not even about brakes lol), i decided to drive another ten miles down the road every time to napa or oreilly's, with much better service

Nice Stu lol I bet he would have just looked at me really confused after the computer didn't turn anything up. Yeah I go to napa when I can unless the very attractive woman is working when I go into autozone for a price check (Theres about a fifty dollar difference on the price of a fuel pressure regulator at napa and autozone which I do love napa and am willing to pay a couple of extra bucks for the service but not fifty lol at that much id expect them to wash my car for my business)
