Took my car in for its 30k checkup. I figured, $300-$400.
Nope. 10 times that. Yep.
Do I have your attention? Why?
Mice got into the motor and chewed up the wiring. Parts must be ordered and it will take at least 1 day of a mechanic working on it to get it going again.
I didn't have any problem before, but according to the service guy, it was a fire waiting to happen.
You know, it makes me wonder: what else is out there lurking, waiting to catch me by surprise?
