Any long time reader knows that we do not have much luck with cars. I truly think it is because we put so many miles on our car. But nonetheless, we have to deal with the issues as they come up.
G-man's car.....apparently needs new ball bearings. This latest repair will be just under $600. Bring us to about $2,000 in repairs in the past 12 months.
He has an '04 Ford Explorer (we will never buy another Ford again....). Since we have owned it, we have had the wheels fall off twice, replaced the transmission, O2 sensors, muffler, alternator, battery, and I think the water pump. Plus tires, oil changes, etc. Oh, and this isn't counting the work that G-man has done himself.
We can cobble the money together from a few different pools of money, but once again, our car maintenance fund will be DRY.
The "plan" was to get my car paid off, and then get him another car. My car will be paid off in December 2016. I don't know if his car is going to last that long.
This is so frustrating!!!!!!
