Follow-up to my last post .

My power steering lines and reservoir are leaking, and it caused the pump to burn up. The technician also found the disks and pads to be worn out. I was looking at $2,500 for parts/labor/tax, as well as three days without my car.

That’s going to total my car.


Since my dad was going to pay for it, he gave me an ultimatum: sell the car as-is and find another used car, or keep it and do the work myself. I obviously went for the latter.

That means the Hoonda will be incapacitated for a while, until I get the parts I need and do all the work. In the meantime, I’ll be sharing a car with my dad. Fortunately the 4Runner came in and after the dealer installs the skid plate and crossbars, he will take it home, so that’s something to look forward to, I guess.
