Unhappy There goes my baby...

She's off to the tranny shop. I'll let you know what the outcome is.

When he got out of the truck, the driver said, "You must love your car to ask for a flatbed." Then I pulled out the Subie, and he said,"Okay, now I know why you asked for my truck."

I feel your pain! Mike621 had a tow truck take Deven (our Laguna 94 LSi) down to get his hood and stuff but the guy put it on a flatbed. The tow driver said it was the first time he saw "one of these cars in the 15 years" he worked as a tow guy. Besides using the chains he wrapped an orange set of tow strap things on the wheels. I was like "why did he secure it like that... is that okay?" and mike said "because he's a ford lover and they could care less how its strapped down." :P
anyway, i hope all comes out well with yours!

They were pulling off the tranny etc and giving it a good look over, making a list and checking it twice. I'll get a call tomorrow with the breakdown of costs.
It'll depend on what shape the whole thing is in whether to go to a Legacy tranny...so far they don't think any works ever been done on the tranny.

They were hoping to take her for a test drive before, but called to say the head mechanic decided on a very short run...got her in just in time, according to them. Bumps and clunks were getting LOUD.

Hope it goes well for yours too, MAXSVX. I kept asking questions as they put her on the flatbed...sure the guy though I was nuts! Can't wait to get in and drive again.

Why does it look so familiar....

New Year's Day

Only it was just power steering failure.

Good luck to you.
