My car died. I got it to the shop and paid for a new battery, and then paid for them to take it apart to find out why it still wouldn’t start, get it started and put it back together to tell me I needed a new engine. A new engine for a car that only had 52K miles and as a matter of fact already had one new engine at 15K.
It was running and we had done all the research and test driving last Summer when we got Lori’s new car so we kind of already made up our minds prior to even knowing I needed a new car.
With it running, but no trust in it, we drove it to the dealership on Sunday. We did test drive a smaller model but ended up right back to the Forester. So if I am buying a new car and I am paying this kind of money I am getting the one I want. Except, they didn’t have it in stock. It was “almost” here being on a boat on its way.
So I am currently in a rental car. I have signed paperwork for a car that is not hear yet and I hope to have it within another 10 days.
