      Just a quick update…
      Got the car back last night. My total cost was $267.50. Not bad.

      Two weeks ago after my son's baseball game I went to start my car and it was parked next to a truck on the right side. Windows down a/c and radio off I start my car and hear a weird metallic flapping...
