Are you serious?
You’re right they’re not under stress, but rust takes its toll. It depends where you’re from, I guess.

People think Volvos are good cars until they drive cars that are actually good.

I like having a voltage gauge in the car to warn me of charging issues. It's come in handy a few times...massive oil leak from the cam seal onto the belts...worn brushes...worn out belts....dying battery that wouldn't hold a charge overnight.

I've had an ignition rotor fail where the center caved in and finally the car died and would not restart. Leading up to the night it failed, it would fail to hot-restart about once every week or two for a couple months. Even if you replaced it recently, I would definitely carry a spare. Coil, coil wire, and ign. module too if you have spares.

I carry a spare crank position sensor. The wiring harness is subjected to heat and the insulation often fails. This could easily leave the car dead on the road, but it's such a small inexpensive spare to carry, and only takes a few minutes to replace....if you have enough extensions.

I've always had a few extra radiator hoses and a length of small hose to patch up the hose to the overflow tank hoses if needed. Bring a few feet of heater hose and you can bypass the heater core if something were to happen to your heater hoses out on the road.

Hose clamps, coat hanger, bailing wire, zip ties, duct tape...the usual stuff for emergency fixes. Tire plug kit, air compressor, spare tire that holds air and has rubber on it.

Interesting, reminds me of the Winter Emergency Kit thread from the past season

It likely broke down in the mountains and OP wishes he’d driven a Toyota there instead.

I'm a little all over the place haha. I play with a couple of R&B/Soul singers but just left a proggy/alt rock project recently. I do production and recording as well if you ever need something done
