I had a problem with my car in Phoenix, which about 2.5 hours away.
Having just lost my drivers license/credit I didn't have
license/credit cards with me and about $100 cash. My car started to
over heat and it just wouldn't seem to cool down very well. I
called my husband to come and pick me up, as I wanted to leave it at
the Audi dealership which was just a few miles away. He refused
and told me to drive home, and no matter how much water I kept adding
and how many times I stopped to let the car cool off--it took me from
9 p.m. to 5 p.m. to make a two hour drive. The dealership just
called me and said that coolant gets in the pistons after sitting
I really love this car and with back surgery is the most comfortable
car for me to drive. So of course I cried for an hour when I got
the news from the dealership that it will be not $2,200 to fix, as
originally thought, but $6,000 or more!!! I don't know what to do
at I would like to fix the car and am wondering whether putting a
used motor in it would be a reasonable choice??
Or just take the seats out and try to find another Audi. Or forget
that and just get another car of any sort for now and look for
something else later.
I absolutely have to have a car with working AC that is half way
comfortable as I am a realtor. The worst part is that I don't have
my first closing until sometime in August. So we are in a position
that we are going to have to borrow the funds. So no alternative
looks good at this point.
Suggestions would be most appreciated.
