Car repair $

June 8th, 2019 at 12:27 pm

My trunk started leaking a while ago. Honestly, I should have gotten it taken care of sooner but I tend to procrastinate about stuff like that. It wasn't a bad leak but it was definitely coming in at times.

Anyway, it finally started smelling musty in the car and that was the breaking point. I took it to the body shop on Tuesday. They were able to find the source of the leak - the rear window had been replaced in the past and apparently wasn't sealed well when they did that. They removed the window, cleaned up some rust, and reset the window with proper (I hope) sealing.

I got the car back yesterday and went over to a local car wash/detailer and made an appointment to have it cleaned on Wednesday. They will shampoo the carpets and mats and spray an odor eliminator on everything they can't shampoo.

All together, the repair, the detailing, and the rental car I had while it was in the shop ran a little over $600. Not a huge deal. Just one of those things that tends to come along unexpectedly from time to time. Thankfully, we can comfortably afford things like that.
