Roger doesn't add one further example from his own experience.

Having purchased a new Prestige and gone through all of the setup expenses, I

cracked while under this care, or so I was informed by a usually reliable
source. Am I misinformed, Roger?

Score: (for RG only) Care preserves - 2, It cracks anyway - 1.
