My Car Is Home

I called the shop at 7 this morning and they said my car was finally done. It was done before they closed shop last night, but when I called at 4 yesterday afternoon they were still having problems with the brake lines and asked to keep it until this morning. The good news on all this is some of the parts are under lifetime warranty and the brake lines are under a six year warranty. So if anything goes wrong with the car, it won't cost me what I just paid for it. They applied a coupon to the total which brought it down almost a hundred dollars. I shouldn't have any more problems with this car. If I do, it's all covered, even the tires. I should only need an oil change and tune-up from now on. Regular maintenance. I needed the car fixed by this morning as I will be leaving in half an hour for the hospital and my infusion, and being Thursday, I have laundry immediately afterward. I won't be home before 4 at the earliest. So if the complex is going to plow after yesterday's awesome snowstorm, I will be gone the required time. That is my good news. Do you have good news to share? Thanks for reading.

That is good news. Those warranties really do relieve a lot of worry. The good news here is the sun is out and has melted the little bitty dusting of snow.

You didn't use that snowblower this year did you? Yes, it is good news. I shouldn't be spending much on the car in the future, including today when I take it back in because the check engine light is on.

@just4him Nope, no new snowblower use. My husband has gas in the older snowblower and he wants to use it the gas up, but I hope he does not have to use either snowblowers.

Must be a relief to have the car back repaired now. I had a bit of time off the site yesterday but back now.

@infatuatedbby It wasn't. It didn't cost me anything. It was one of the spark plug wires that wasn't connected properly when they were checking everything for the problem, it got missed.

@DianneN I still have snow on the ground, so it didn't get as warm as they expected. Though today there will be more melting. Spring is coming. I need to go with the flow - the snow flow that is as it melts.

That is good to have a long coverage for the car. We have everything covered for the next 5 years, that is a good thing, because cars can become a bit expensive.

Yes we do. When he told me how much it was going to cost, my head went into a tale spin. It's the most expensive repair I've done on any car I've had.

Oh good for you, I am happy you got your car back and all the parts are warranty. Well, now that you mentioned - it's a long story - but there was a fee on my charge card that I didn't feel was fair. I called them, and politely explained my reasoning - and they actually waived most of it
