Well, it is Preventive Maintenance

My mechanic called this afternoon and told me I could collect my van. I walked over to his shop and surveyed the damage: $659, of which $255 was to replace the shorted-out multi-function turn indicator/windshield wiper/cruise control switch. The rest was for a comprehensive tune-up on the engine, which was installed about 45,000 miles ago. Coming on the heels of the emergency repairs on Lisa's van last weekend, these expenses hurt; however, I think I have to think of it as money well spent to keep the van rolling smoothly.
