I know I posted a lot about our car woes last week, but this should be the last update for a while. You see, we got another call Friday afternoon – it turns out the problem was with the starter.
Which, IMHO, is another nail in the coffin for Goodyear. You see, they just replaced the starter with a brand new one about a year and a half ago. It was still under warranty.
So, since they weren’t going to make any money doing the repair we needed, they tried to tell us it was something else, and even then refused to try to fix it because “we can’t find the part available in our computer (the flywheel they claimed needed replaced)”. Of course, the reason they can’t find the flywheel available in their computer – it isn’t available individually, only as a part of a unit that includes the torque converter. I got that from talking to a transmission specialist. Either the staff at the Goodyear center are incompetent or crooked, and I’m not sure which would be worse.
Anyhow, we should have the car back sometime today, and since my wife does a wonderful job of keeping receipts, we’re only having to pay the labor charge for the installation. THANKS HONEY!
