My h took our suv for service this morning. We were charged $1,000. The suv needed the brakes replaced, full tune up, etc. We haven't gotten it serviced for at least one year. Thank goodness for the income tax refund.

It feels good having $ for this kind of stuff. However, only reason we had the $ was because of the refund.

In case you gals are saying this is alot of $. The reason is unfortunately, we have a German suv. Services on these vehicles are expensive. Hopefully, the end of next year, we will be able to purchase or lease a minivan.

Just a little update on my situation.

That's great news. Car repairs are often what send people scampering back to their credit cards. It's not easy to budget for repairs, though I do at least try to budget for oil changes and such. Congrats for being able to pay NOW for the repairs. Besides, it's good to know that your vehicle is safe again. Not much worse than bad brakes!
