Wheels Recovered

I got a call this morning from the transmission shop telling me my vehicle was ready. I walked over and, just short of $2600 later, I had a working minivan again.

Based on what the shop manager said about what their warranty does and does not cover, even in retrospect, buying the lifetime warranty four years ago wouldn't have paid off, because he said it only covers parts, not labor, and labor was more than half the cost of the repair.

Now I need to concentrate on work for a while before finishing packing and heading off to ConStruction late this afternoon.
