I swear....we have more than our share of car issues. We have enough car things to cover all our friends...their spouses....and maybe their kids!!
Saturday evening, we decided to take the kids to dinner (some assemblance of a "family"). G-man was leaving on Sunday for a business trip, so he took Saturday off to spend with the kids. His car worked fine all day. Maybe it was the poison air between us....maybe it was karma....who knows....but....
His car wouldn't go into gear! We pulled out of the driveway, and were in the middle of the street...and nada. He tried R, D, N....nothing. 1, 2, 3.....Nothing. After fighting with it for several minutes, it finally went into gear with a rather loud jolt and THUD.
Since he was leaving anyway, we decided to drop his car off that night at the shop, and we will pick it up next weekend. We are hoping that it is just a valve or something. His car is a 2004..so not THAT old. It has already had some transmission work in the past, but that was under warranty.
Hopefully the shop will call us today and tell us what the issue is and that it won't be thousands of dollars to fix. I will let you know!!!
C'mon Universe.....you gotta cut us some slack!!!!
ETA: Well CRAP!!!!! The car needs a new transmission. They are still working up the price. G-man is guessing about $2,000. He and I will talk about it tonight....part of me says this car is a lemon, and it is time to move on. But we still owe $3400 on the car. This is sooooo not what we needed right now.
