Car drama:(

I wonder why things happen all at once sometimes. Is it the stars aligning or just WTF?

 

My daughter has a nice CRV Honda 2007.  When she drove in the other evening I thought I heard something from her engine. Then the next morning when she started it I said Whoaaaa….you can’t drive that.

So she took the Santa FE.  B and I drove into the Honda dealer and the news was grim.

Back a month ago when she took it to see what was up with the A/C, they said the whole system was shot. $5000 to fix. So she said no thank you. The guy said she could still drive the car no problem.

Well, Big problem as the pulley and belt are ready to come off and that would ruin the engine. So we were at a stand still because she still owes $5000.  So now this fix was what???

So when I went in this morning, he explained that the pulley and the air compressor ( not a Honda part) will be @ 1000. And then they would disconnect the electrical to the A/C.  I’m actually not sure why they didn’t do that before. Hummmm , maybe a mistake on their part. Anyway…..

We thought to bring it to another garage and have them do the whole AC for $3000, but now that he’s offered this, I think that’s the best way to go so I said go ahead.

At least this way she can still use the car , pay it off, and then next year trade in for something newer.   GEEez what an ordeal and so stressful.

I went to Grocery Outlet for some vitamins and a few items and now home. I think I can finally relax.

Well, she will still have to figure out driving Tuesday as B needs his car to go to San Francisco for work.

Yikes, what we do for our ADULT children…..
