Our Car Wouldn't Start *update*

Yesterday I went to pick up my bridesmaid dress and when I went to leave my car wouldn't start. I was 30min from home and had to have it towed to the nearest Firestone. I had the baby with me, it was a long and exhausting afternoon. And of course when I FINALLY got home I had to order pizza since it was late, I had no time to cook and we needed to eat. I'm waiting to hear from the place about the car and what is wrong with it. If its going to be another day or longer we'll have to rent a car :-( dh cant get to work without it.

Thankfully, it was only the battery. We needed a new one and they gave us an oil change too. They tried to talk us into new tires, which we know we need, but we are going to try to find them for cheaper than what Firestone quoted me. Totally unrelated to this, we got a crack in our windshield last week so that's going to cost us too. Seems its piling up! Anyway, dh picked up the car so no rental and we are onto finding tires! Going to try Walmart first.

Ugh, that really bites.  Here's hoping it's nothing major and/or expensive.

fingers crossed

Your mouth to gods ears. Ugh. I've never had any real car trouble so I'm nervous.

That really sucks. I'm sorry the day didn't go well.  Hoping car repairs are little to none.

If it's too outrageous, get a second opinion or quote.  I had Tuffy muffler go to replace a muffler once and they ended up creating more damage until I needed  a whole new exhaust system.  I called around and drove the car sans exhaust system one block more to a place that did a great job for half the cost.
