I bought a car and I had to buy a welder, socket set, wrenches, pulley pullers, spanners, hammers, tool boxes, pliers, compressors, testers, probes, programmers, and a GD screw driver.

It's the end of the world, I need a cool looking star ended screw driver to take apart my iPhone.

That's nothing like the fricken 17mm alen wrench I needed to change the oil in my Jetta.

I have a 93 Dodge 2500 pickup truck. I came to a stop light and the truck was trying to push through the brakes. Ended up being the cruse control. It was on, but not enabled. It somehow enabled and was trying to take off. Even though I was holding the brakes, it was still trying to go. I finally realized and turned off the control.

So it's not only foreign/new cars that have this issue.
