$721.00, including labor

July 28, 2008

Here are five things you do NOT want to hear from your auto mechanic.

1) “Funny, we just had that exact same car in yesterday. It is still on the lift”

2) “Well, it’s not your serpentine belt. Too bad… that would have been easy”

3) “We actually don’t even keep that part in stock”

4) “Don’t worry, it won’t cost too much more to have it special ordered from the dealer”

5) “I hope you won’t be needing it back anytime soon”

Not exactly the leisurely Sunday I had planned.
