If something CAN go wrong, it WILL.
So yeah, we start this new life-altering (and awesome!) course of adoption and on Monday we think, “let’s get our soon-to-haul-baby-mover in the shop for a 60k mile tune-up and oil change.” This work will cost around $400. Four hours and a phone call later we hear, “you’ve got a cracked radiator that wasn’t repaired, or even noticed for that matter, from back in March ’07 from the little accident you had . . . it’s leaking and needs a new one . . . parts are on order for a Wednesday install . . . cost is $620.”
Choke. Eye rolling. Heart pounds.
Us: Oh, really? Well, okay . . .
Honda: We can check to see if it’s under warranty. We’ll call back.
Some time passes…
Honda: Mr. Kent, you’re covered with your warranty and it includes a car rental. Just come by and pick up the rental and we’ll call you Wednesday when your Accord is ready.
Us: Whew! Thanks God!
And, we have to give a shout out to Dave Ramsey, who resides in our heads/hearts/thoughts for teaching us sensible saving and spending practices that still would have covered this had the warranty not been there!
