Well, I finally took my car to the shop... I was too lazy to find a new mechanic, so instead I convinced myself that maybe this time the dealer wouldn't ream me up the ass. Seeing as they made me reserve an appointment a week in advance and bring the car in at 8:30 am, are charging me $90 to look at the car and figure out what's wrong with it, and after two hours haven't gotten around to calling and telling me what's up, I think I've made the wrong choice.
I hope it's fixed today, and doesn't cost more than a couple thousand dollars to replace the $5 part that's probably at fault. I *really* hope it's fixed by Saturday, since I kind of wanted to go to Conifur. <:3 Current Mood: anxious
Okay, the dealer got back with an estimate... four more hours and about $300 (to replace a $5 part that they already have in stock). So, not a disaster
, at least. Assuming they actually fix the problem and don't break anything else.( Also, I'm a pigeon. I'm coo wit dat.Collapse ) Current Mood: okay
Got the car back, the estimate was accurate, no special problems, and it seems to be fixed. So that's over
