car nonsense

This week has been kinda crazy guys.
Last week on Beau's commute to work, our car broke down.
It had to be towed and taken to a mechanic.  
And of course the mechanic couldn't do anything, so we had to take it to the dealership.
Well, after replacing the car's computer (which cost us a good grand), we were on our way again 
and were just relieved to put our car issues behind us.


Or so we thought.

Two days ago, only six days since the car was last at the dealership, our car broke down in the exact same manner again.  And of course it was on Beau's way to work again.
He had to take the day off on Monday and get the car towed to the dealership...once again.
Well, they remembered us of course and were surprisingly decent about the whole thing. 
They're going to send us a check to reimburse us for the towing.
They gave us a rental car to use for the day (on their bill) while they took a look at our car.

And unfortunately, after all their inspections and tests, they still couldn't figure out what was wrong.
They apparently think it is one of three possible problems...but until one of those three things actually break, they won't know which it is.  Come on, don't we have something that can check that without just playing the waiting game?? Apparently not. 

So they sent us on our merry way home with the car yesterday.  Beau said it drove fine, 
so let's just hope that it stays that way.
On the plus side, the dealership didn't charge us for anything though.
Thankfully.

Ahhh seriously that must be so stressful!!! I am glad that the dealership was good about everything though. Fingers crossed your car lasts longer this time around!
