    This Roadmaster is always garaged with 25,000 original miles & original owners still has it. Went to Monroe for a oil change came out with a $700.00 charge for idler/piman arm & they said my wheel bearings were loose & the wheels could fall off. I hope that i wasnt taken for all the work it needed with only 25,00 miles on it.
