I would definatly get a second opinion……. I would take it to a smaller shop or something. Labor fee’s are soo expensive. Or if your Fiance is handy; look online you can find sooooo soooo soo many DIY ways to fix problems with your vehicle that will save you Hundreds….

I’m sorry. Car repairs suck. I hate it when life happens. Like my husband surprised me today by picking me up at work and got a $50 parking ticket.

Don’t apologize!  I would be SO upset too.

Life always throws curve balls like that.  Are you booking your honeymoon through a travel agent?  They had us put a deposit down first… our balance is due beginning of April.  That could help balance out what you owe now.

I would also get a second opinion as demodreamer said.  And maybe you can get on a payment plan with the garage?

I would look for a second opinon.  My husband’s truck has had the check engine light on because of a sensor going out for years and nothing is wrong with it (and you don’t really need the sensor).  I guess it is different when your husband works on cars so he knows if things are wrong with it.

Oh no!  That’s got to be crazy stressful, I know I probably would cry.  No, I would definitely cry.  Do you know anyone that has a good relationship with an auto repair shop/person?  I’d get a second opinion or find a connection before I give up that much cash.
