lifetime powertrain warranty

chrysler, in an effort to boost sales and confidence, apparently announced a lifetime warranty on the powertrains of their non-demonic cars. pretty good deal, especially considering that that includes the turbo charger.

i come from the heady land of honda where things just work. we assume in this austere and stuffy world that american things simply fail. the stupid, dull and less fortunate buy american for unclear-yet-patriotic reasons and when something goes wrong they simply say, "gollyeee! that thang done 'ploded!" and buy another one.

whether or vehicles are actually like that doesn't matter. what does matter is if you think that could be true, you need to have psychological defenses against it.

and warranty counts, sure.
