YAY! My car is home!

Sunday, October 21, 2012

Ok, it's not a race car... but it's mine and it's home! The really good news is I have some friends who do car repair from their garage and they do what they can to save me money with out compromising the quality of the repairs. They really do amazing work!

The not so good news is it generally takes them longer because they have to track down parts and sometimes rent tools that they don't already have. And my bill is $1299.37.

Actually that should have been under the good news, because everything that they did to the car would have cost 3 times as much at any other mechanic and I can't even imagine what it would have cost at the dealership! It took a week to get it done, but it is done and home and oh, so nice!!! Oh, and I can make payments, I don't have to come up with all of it at once!!! And looking over my invoice, there are some things they did that they didn't even charge me for. I am humbled and blessed!!!

I don't really think often enough about how very much I depend on my car. I need to really stop taking it for granted!!!

    I am in a similar situation, my mom is giving us transportation. Your right about, not realizing how much we depend on our cars. I am very happy for you getting your car back and at a fraction of what it would have cost you
