The clutch, however, is almost gone, so it needs replacing. $900. The front tires are bad, but I'm just having them rotate them with the rears, and I don't have to worry about that. Cooling system needs flushed, and I need an oil change. All told, it's going to be $1184. And, with all the work, they might not get it done today. Whee.
We've put quite a bit of money into the car, but at least the engine is still good. Last time I had it in, they said they wouldn't be surprised if it lasted another 100,000 miles. And it's already well over 200,000 miles. So, yeah, I want to hold onto this car.
Hmm, maybe it would be worth it to have hrafn get a couple-years-old used car, something where we'd have payments for a while, so that we'd at least have one car that we wouldn't have to worry too much about.
With all of this car crap, I don't see how I can afford to take any time off when this contract is over. Fuckity, fuckity.
