So that dragging feeling I recently noticed, and the lower gas mileage, and funny metal clanking noise were not random; turns out I busted a front axle, boot, and UV joint. Dealer is estimating over $840 just for that repair, and my 45,000 mile maintenance is due as well (another $300-$400). Ouch!
Guess there is no new Linux server in my immediate future.
At least it is getting fixed before the long drive to Rome, NY to see my Mom.
Ah, hint – if you owe me money, and have not been too worried about repaying me at all, could you at least worry now, or pay a little? You know who you are.
