Van Update

My mechanic called me at around 7:30 PM last night to let me know that the alternator was indeed failing, and that part of the reason may include the seven-year-old battery, which he recommended I replace as well. I agreed to all that. He asked if he needed to get it done tonight, and I told him, "No, tomorrow is fine! Call me when it's ready and I'll walk over and pick it up." The estimated damage is $417, total parts and labor.

The very fact that he'd offer to stay that late and do the work if it was urgent that I needed my vehicle first thing this morning is one of the reasons I keep taking my vehicle to him. Fremont Wheel & Brake is a lot more than just wheels and brakes!
