Our car broke down due to transmission issues and we’ve been on a quest to repair it for cheap. Just with this one simple action we managed to save $1,000’s on our car repair already!
Friday is here and I’m ready for a little break from work!
We’re still trying to recover from the bad news of our car transmission going out. We took it to another mechanic and he said it would cost anywhere from $500 - $2,600!
That’s better than the first mechanic who quoted us $5,000 - $6,000 but still not really doable with the car not being worth much more that.
If there’s one valuable lesson from this horrible experience it is to always look at several options before making a financial decision..
How does one mechanic quote us $5,000 - $6,000 and another mechanic quote us $500 - $2,600? I think they just want to see how much they can extract from my wallet! :)
If you’re ever having car work done make sure to get at least 3 quotes as the prices will vary wildly! Just by checking a few options you could save $1,000’s of dollars.
Hoping for an easier rest of January!
Have a great weekend!
