Saturn

The dealer finally called me back today and she said that they can't even look at the car because the ignition and the key won't work. To replace all that, so they can look at the car and determine what is wrong, will cost me $401. Then they can tell me everything else that is wrong with it. I know I will need a new battery which is $100, and then they will remind me that there is a leak in my radiator and that is $1500 to repair. I'm sure there is more wrong with it. So I authorized the $401 and then said call me after that. Looks like Gunner will get his motorcycle after all. I wonder if he will settle for a motard? The boy is so accident prone that I am just worried about him getting one.

Time for a nap....

Gunner just called and I was filling him in on everything when they came through and told everyone to get off the phones and internet immediately. A quick bye and he was gone. Wonder what happened.

sorry to hear about your car. I for one HATE to deal with car stuff, it stresses me out like nothing else. So best of luck. And I'm with you on the worry of a motorcycle. I told flyboy I would prefer him to never get on one. I'm cool with worrying about his plane falling out of the sky I dont think I could worry about him on his commute to work too.

Out here, when ever a group gets back from a tour there is a rash of murdercycle deaths throughout the county. I have driven one once but never again.

We had the ignition fill up with flakes of metal off of the ignition key one time and had to have both replaced a couple of years ago.
