Which is the exactly reason why you get one! It's like a cop and their gun: rather have it, and not need it, than need it and not have it.
I hyrdo-locked my first engine because I was stuck in a flash-flood and didn't have a beater car as an option. Now I do and the focus never goes out in the rain. Look at it like this: less than a hundred for a bypass, or over a couple thousand for a new engine/labor
