Our car has been making a strange rattling metal sound for a couple weeks now. We called and booked it into a local garage last week but today was their first opening. It actually worked out perfectly because I am working on Saturday which means I have today off as my day in lieu.
Andy and I dropped it off before 8:00am this morning and then he went to work and I went back home a nervous wreck waiting for the mechanic to call with the news.
Well... it didn't take him long. At 8:53 he called to say that it was a warn/loose section of the exhaust that needed to be replaced. Parts, labor and VAT (tax) would come to £41.17 ($68.23)! I was overjoyed! I told him to get crackin with the repairs and at 10:15 he called to say it was done and that I could come after it.
Since it is a local garage I walked down, paid and then took it for a test run. The noise has completely stopped and I am so relieved.
