    Not sure if this was brought up before but what are the odds of getting your wires chewed by rodents? I don't live out in the country...yet, but i've heard of class action lawsuits filed due to the soy which is contained in the vehicle's wiring. Has anyone been a victim of hungry rodents??If so, what area?

    I've had the wiper hose chewed up on my '10 Tundra, the turbo hose on my wife's car and found a nest atop the engine of my back hoe. Now I put cotton balls soaked in peppermint oil in the engine bays. I'm at the base of the mountains in Santa Cruz.

    I think the rodents 1st make a nest due to the warm / dry motor space...
    then chew cause that's what they do

    peppermint oil works to deter..

    Had a rat get into my wife’s work truck (2010 DC) and caused over $4K in damage. Chewed holes in all plastic reservoirs, got wires, and insulation. Fortunately, her company had to pay the bill, I would’ve been pissed if it were my vehicle. It made a nest in the A/C inlet under the wiper cowl. I set a trap and caught it. Now, we use peppermint oil and dryer sheets. Her truck is parked outside, our vehicles stay in the garage.
