Last year we bought a new car. This was after our old car was declared ancient, worn out and too expensive to maintain. We bought a used car. Less than a year old, still in warranty. The warranty expired last month.
Last week the car was a wee bit wobbly and not making its usual non-noise so SO took it to the garage. On Monday SO got the bad news about the repair bill. Let’s just say the repair was more than double that of the worn out ancient car we had given to the scrapyard. We are so not impressed to put it politely. We could have kept the corpse car going for three more years on that money. SO has had to travel to work by public transport as it will take over a week to do the repairs. Really I have not been able to see a positive side to this and that is one rare feat.
