We have had a code/ check engine on the car since November. It’s for an EGR valve which was replaced in 2014. It’s going to cost several hundred dollars.
I also had a switch for the shifter fall off. It’s on there now but missing something. And this little part costs almost $200.
I wonder how much our cars cost us with the cost of cars, deprecation, repairs, roads, the environment…
Kurt Vonnegut said gas is a very expensive high and I agree. I wonder how different our country would be today if the car didn’t take over after World War II. It’s very hard to live without one in most of the United States today. Places like big box retail and completely designed for cars and often shopping districts are incredibly bad places for pedestrians. I wonder how that will change in the future.
