rhetorical question

if you have a car that won't start, and you take it to the mechanic to get it "fixed," and it starts, and then three weeks later it won't start again, so you take it to the mechanic again and they get it started, and three weeks later it won't start again, so you take it to the mechanic and they get it to start   and three weeks later it won't start again......

Is it really fixed?

 

My brother the programmer had a 1974 Mazda RX 4 station wagon. In the early '80s, it began not starting. He took it to the dealer and they replaced the battery, saying everything else was fine.
After a few days, it failed to start again. The dealer checked it out and installed a new battery, saying everything else was fine.
Happened again. Tired of the runaround, and wanting a new car anyway, he parked it.
I needed a car. My brother said if I could get it running, I could have the Mazda. I opened the hood, looked around and saw that the battery was connected backwards.
Bought a new battery, hooked it up right and drove it for the next 2-3 years.
Sorry for the hijack.
