Car Thoughts

I miss the days when I took my car in once a year for a couple hundred dollars of service. Now it's once a year and a couple thousand.

I have broken sway bars and struts, alignment issues and a scant millimeter of brake pads.

All can be fixed -- for a price, of course.

Ouch. I would opt for getting it all done. The only item I might consider optional is the alignment, though if mis-aligned it doesn't handle as well and is tough on tires. But an alignment should only be 40-50 bucks, so it is nothing compared to the struts and swaybars, the most expensive repair that you face.

Good luck with all of that.

Yep, I'm getting it all taken care of. The only thing I passed on was changing the power steering fluid. I was informed it was "getting dirty" and the least of my worries.
