Why California Sucks, Part 1437

Filed under: — site admin @ 12:29 AM UTC

Estimated cost of a new catalytic converter and accompanying sensors for my 1998 Accord, including labor and tax, minus AAA discount: $902 and change.

Revised estimate after determining it needs a “California” catalytic converter, though the car was bought in Maryland and has never been west of Kansas: $1446 and change.

Actual cost of same: $1436.57. I appreciate the $10 saving, but it didn’t really help much.

It seems to me that the filthy inhabitants of the filthy state of California owe me $534 (I won’t worry about the pennies).
