When it rains, it pours..

Ha.. here's quite the story. First off, I replaced my front and rear brakes. I had a very loud rubbing type noise happen whenever I let off the brakes. Finally I gave in and brought it to the dealer (hence I have a warranty). I bring it in and they look at it. The brake holder clips are on wrong and have warped my brand new rotor. So they charge me 80 bucks to resurface them and reinstall the pads..

Secondly, my driver side cv boot was torn. 100 bucks (with my warranty, nonetheless) to replace this...

Then tonight I'm leaving my drive way and GRIND GRIND. Yep, my transmission decides not to work anymore, and I roll into the curb while I am in park. I am thinking the douche bags at the dealer either overfilled or underfilled my tranny(it was too dark to really tell). So either way, I'm without a car until monday, I have to call into work on Monday, and I've used alot of sick hours this year, so I'm gonna get really chewed out. Sigh.. I didn't have any problems with this car until this month. When one thing goes, they all do.

Well, it'll get fixed, haha. It's just a matter if the dealer will take responsibility. They better at least pay for the tow truck.

Well I'm at the dealer. My friend works here and he said that the mechanic said it might be a cv spring.. would that seriously trip my tranny out?

^^ Sometimes I wonder, haha. But it's fixed now. Apparently my driver side axle was shot. All better now though.. for now anyways.
