What?!?

March 21st, 2009 at 07:25 am

I have a wonderful day to myself today, thanks to MIL taking the girls and DH and DS at a skateboard campout. Hooray for me! So I drop DHs truck off for a diagnostic. It just needs a tune-up (plugs, wires, air filter, fuel filter, serpentine belt, hose that goes to the pvc valve).

~$750

WHAT?

I don't even know why I took it in, because we could do all of that for about $100. I know better.

    Wow! Did you get a price quote before they began the work?

  3. SnoopyCool Says:

    They DID NOT begin work. We'll be doing it ourselves.

    Yeah it is expensive, mine will be close to $650 but thank goodness my uncle knows a mechanic who will do it for little of nothing

    That would be hilarious if it didn't lead to so many people being taken in for exorbitant costs on automotive work. Good for you that you are doing it yourselves! It's not the kind of thing that is covered by auto insurance, and once the car is past warranty you are on your own.
