Subject: German rubber
"if only the Germans could do rubber as well as they do metal!"
I was told that the Germans are required by law to use biodegradable
rubber parts for obvious reasons. It wouldn't surprise me if there were
some truth to this as I'm sure that all automakers are familiar with the
various types of non-biodegradable materials that are available. I've
seen Honda cv joint boots outlast the Honda cv joint--I think they use
neoprene or something--however, all of the European hoses and boots on
the cars I've had crack up and fall apart. I've also seen ancient
Nissans in junk yards with pristene flexible tubing--which I've taken
off and put on my European cars.
