Yesterday our car broke down while we were driving on the motorway. The AAA-guy guessed the timing belt broke. Ehm….that’s
an iron throne a car with only 85.000 kilometres on the clock and during maintenance in July the garage never mentioned this thing should have been replaced. Worst case scenario is that the whole motor went to smithereens and repair will likely cost us a couple of thousand. Ugh…
We feel like the garage should take responsibility here. It’s their job to replace things on time. This isn’t the first time things break down. I’ve been a loyal customer for over fifteen years. I’m seriously considering going to a different garage from now on.
We also talked about going car (care?!) free…but at this moment that’s just not an option for us.
Jeez, I hate these things!
P.s. Ah, that was a complainypantsy post! On the bright side…we have enough emergency fund to cover cost of the repair. The money was just sitting there in a useless savings account anyways…now some of those euros will be off to actually “do” something…I guess….. But seriously, I am very grateful we are able to pay for these emergencies straight up.
