I'll give you that one there Bob...


Copy and past, Google is great.


Just thought you would have learned this meaning back in grade school...lol


LOL, too much thinking involved in that.


Thats why I use a calculator...


Given the preponderance of deceptive gibberish that so often permeates automotive sales and marketing, it seems to me that the question is a legitimate one, this in the spirit of "the devil is in the details". "Caveat emptor" being the appropriate by-phrase for any potential automotive product buyer, I think, it simply makes good sense to determine exactly what apparently important words mean. As the old saw goes: "The buyer needs a hundred eyes, the seller not one". Why not then ask question(s) up front and be sure rather than get bitten when it's too late to find out what wordings mean?

You answered you own question. Bravo! Well done.


Well spoken, I think, It's not the meaning of "true" that one would need be aware of as much as trust and deception between two parties.
