The exhaust has been fixed and the car drives silently once again, except for the squealing on the front end.. What I should say is the car no longer rumbles. ☺
They did a great job fixing the exhaust and even welded a new hook in place so if it breaks again it doesn’t drag on the ground. That would have been really nice to have yesterday but it all worked out.
The entire repair was only $50 and I was able to pull that off.
Look, it sucks that the the repairs were needed in the first place. It sucks even more that someone broke into the car last night but rather than dwelling on the obvious negatives, I’m going to focus on something else instead.
At the end of the day, I have a brand new bottle of shampoo.. True, I don’t have any hair to take advantage of this 32 ounce silver lining (not like I would use shampoo that a would be car thief let behind in my car anyway) but whoever broke into my car walked away with nothing and I walked away with their shampoo… ☺
